Movies in Review: "The Way Back"

Was waaaaaaaayyyyyy too long. It is a film about Siberian prisoners who escape their prison camp and trek from Siberia alllllllll the way to India on foot. That’s one hell of a walk, but it seemed that this film tried to document every waking moment of the trip. I mean come on! How much action are you gonna really get just walking across the map. I mean you get the usual and expected, like the treacherous weather conditions, lack of food and water, people dying off because of the treacherous weather conditions and lack of food and water…smh. I mean the film was good. It had a great cast including Ed Harris (who I love) and Colin Farrell (who always seems to play a dick in his movies…smh). If war films are your thing, then you may enjoy it. But I recommend that you not try to watch this film late, or tired because you may definitely find yourself falling asleep.

But like I said it was ok for what it was worth, I just don’t think the story was entertaining enough to make a whole film out of it…C!

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.
