Review

Honestly, this movie was so dumb. I don’t understand what the hype was about the movie as it was just really political satire. Yes, they sometimes did push it too far, but I mean it was just a movie, and a not really good movie at that. If you have seen Tropic Thunder, then this is quite similar in the style of how it was done and the over all tone.

There were quite a few gruesome moments, which weren’t expected, and weren’t really needed. And the language was quite foul as well as there being a lot of sexual innuendos as well as some nudity.

I mean, there really isn’t a lot of say about this movie. It isn’t worth seeing in a theatre (or if you had seen it I feel bad for you) and it isn’t worth buying. You can see it online because of the hack and many places have it for free, or you can just go to your local library and get it. That’s what I did.

I don’t understand why there was all this hooplah about the movie as it really wasn’t worth it. Yes, I can see why North Korea would be offended by a movie like this, but the movie was so lame, and so bad, that it was just so dumb to have all these issues over it and was really a waste of time. Based on what had happened, I thought this movie was like sooo offensive and so powerful and was horrible. It was one massive joke and was lame…very.

Overall, it’s really not worth seeing, you wouldn’t be missing out on much. Sure, there were a few laughs, but it didn’t outweigh the fact that the movie was quite lame.

Warning: Trailer does contain some rude language and suggestive materials.
