Aesthetic Appeal- 🙂 The movie was shot perfectly, but if you can find fault with the film it’s that the story itself dictates and drives most of its presentation leaving very little room for creativity on the directing and editing side of things. As unfair as it is, to make this movie effective it had to be shot the way it way which was great but not groundbreaking.


Story- 🙂 🙂 The story is so good that all it will get is a ranking because it’s something you have to see and experience for yourself.


Acting-  🙂 🙂 Robert Downey Jr. is absolutely amazing and it makes you wonder if Marisa Tomei can win an Oscar for MY Cousin Vinny why didn’t Downey add another Oscar to his collection for best actor. This film also sees the resurgence of Val Kilmer. Long removed from Top Gun, The Saint, and The Ghost And The Darkness Kilmer shows us why he was considered one of Hollywood’s elite. On a personal note I haven’t enjoyed Val Kilmer’s portrayal of a character this much since Madmartigan in Willow.
