‘The Interview’ Review

 

I finally got a chance to see the highly controversial film, ‘The Interview’ with my friend who works at BRL Trust. The film centered around the imaginary assassination of the North Korean President, Kim Jong Un. The North Korean government (in real life) was outraged by the release of the film. By now, everyone has heard about the ‘Sony’ hacks carried out by the North Korean government. It was widely thought that Sony Studios would not release the film. After much backlash from the American people, the film was released on Christmas day. Many people went out and saw the film because of all the publicity.

‘The Interview,’ was a moderately funny movie that had its moments. James Franco played the part of an eccentric journalist. Franco’s character, Skylark, had the opportunity to party with Kim Jong Un, and let me tell you, it was absolutely hilarious. I won’t give too much away, but Skylark and Kim Jong Un develop a unique relationship.

James Franco definitely brought the laughs, while Seth Rogan’s performance was somewhat mediocre in my eyes. Rogan wasn’t really funny in this film. Together, though, Franco and Rogan have made a cult classic. The film is strange and definitely controversial, but it was entertaining and very funny at certain points.

Final Verdict: 8/10
