Movies in Review: “The Fifth Estate”

Hmmmmm…not sure why I stepped into the theater to see this one. I have never ventured to the WikiLeaks website, only heard about it on the news, and that wasn’t even enough to get me to the site. I think I may have been caught up in the thrilling trailer (see…great marketing can go a long way). The trailer made the movie look more interesting than just the premise of the story. Oh, and I am a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch, so that may have had a little to do with it too…lol.

Well I should have went with my gut, because I didn’t connect with this movie at all. Needless to say, most of the story was over my head. I’m not a news, or information/technology geek. As a matter of fact, too much information fries my brain. So I was basically sitting in the theater fried…lol. I understood very little of what was being said or going on. There were scenes that seemed to be intense, and I sat there wondering what the hell was everyone so tense about…smh…not my type of movie. The only comforting thing from this is that it isn’t a lot of viewers type of movie, as it only made 1.7million in tickets sales its opening weekend, making it a box office flop.

I enjoyed Cumberbatch, but that’s about it. This wasn’t my type of movie, and the only thing I left the theater with was a headache. Please take my review for this film lightly, as I just could not get a grasp of it, to be fair…C-

    Entertaining to say the least, especially given the fact that all it consisted of was people typing and hacking their lives away. Good review Taj.
