Movie review – The Nines March 31, 2008

Posted by Raul in movies.

Everybody knows one of my favorite actors is Ryan Reynolds. He’s from Vancouver, he’s really funny and his movies are usually a riot. So it was kind of nice to see him in a completely different movie and challenging himself to cover an very broad spectrum of characters. In the movie, three sub-plots are intertwined in a very crazy, a little bit over-the-top, sometimes spoon-fed, however intricated storyline.

The only element that is common to all three stories is a little deaf/mute girl that holds an important piece of the puzzle. Ryan plays a drug-addict, crazy-partier actor; a preppy Hollywood writer and a father. Melissa McCarthy also plays three characters as does Hope Davis. It is a witty movie although a bit convoluted. You have to see it to understand it. But the bottom line is: it’s a great movie and Ryan Reynolds does a great job.

I really want to see this… I’m a
pretty big Ryan Reynolds fan myself.
Nice to see him go in a new direction !

Agreed…a bit convoluded at times but it DOES start to make more sense with repeat viewings. I’ve always liked Reynolds but I’m happy to see him stretch his limits a little. Have you seen the trailer for his upcoming film “Chaos Theory”? Just in case, it’s here.

Well said, Marina… it does start making more sense with repeat viewings. I saw it with my good friend JT, and we had a very long conversation trying to elucidate what the hell had just happened šŸ™‚
