Movie Review: The Interview

Why was there so much fuss about The Interview? Yes, this was basically a silly comedy about killing the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, but at the end of the day, it's just a silly comedy. Once you strip away the controversy surrounding it, it's actually a consistently amusing comedy film. It didn't hit on all cylinders all the time - some jokes really fell flat and some parts felt disjointed - but there's a charm to the film that's quite riveting. The editing was rightly done, the cinematography was good, and the production design looked awesome. But it was the chemistry between Seth Rogen and James Franco that made the film work as they play off each other perfectly here. Their banters were hysterical for the most part. The Interview wasn't anything groundbreaking, and I don't think it changed the way I live my life - especially with the most unrealistic premise - but this was still a pretty solid movie. 7.5
