I knew this one was going to be strange after reading the synopsis: likable guy pursues his crush with the help of his evil talking pets. Alright, interesting enough to watch, but not interesting enough to say that I in any way liked this movie. With Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, and Anna Kendrick leading the way of this film, I had much better hopes for what it would have been.
The concept of the movie is completely interesting, but the way it was both filmed and acted just didn’t do anything for me. Basically, Ryan Reynolds plays a character that our Criminal Minds FBI team would be hunting down, luckily the movie is from his perspective and as the film progresses you can see him both challenging himself and accepting himself. The film is definitely a bloody and grotesque one as the viewers see every single thing he’s doing to his victims in his tiny apartment about the bowling alley. Let’s just say… not only his animals talk… and that is where the movie lost me. I could have dealt with the talking animals, but when they threw in other things it just turned me off.
I went back in Ryan Reynolds filmography list to see if this movie was one of the first he made in his career. It wasn’t and I can’t fathom an idea on why he was in this type of movie… though he does play the psycho well I would say - made me think of Dexter in his mannerisms.
Regardless, I’m going to have to give this one a “Hated It” it is just too much to handle and I thought it was a waste of time to watch. (1/5).
