The writers of the former a place in silence are the creators of 65another story in which the protagonists are few – among them, Adam Driver-, they live on the run and the threats are terrifying.
Well, maybe it’s not that bad after all.
What is certain is that, for the sake of 65: On the verge of extinction -it’s not about any bus lines that are about to stop running-, we shouldn’t make comparisons with John Krasinski’s film. And since there’s an adult and a girl in danger here, it’s not even convenient to recall the dynamics of the couple in the series. The Last of Us.
But let’s talk about it 65which in the pool means The hunter, something that shouldn’t worry the writers. 65 million years ago, in a galaxy very similar to ours, because everything takes place on Earth, an astronaut from another planet (but with human features, so much so as to be the same as Adam Driver) crashes here, one kilometer further, a mile less.
Mills had to go on a two-year journey in order to be able to pay for her daughter’s treatment. We see that the planet he comes from is very similar to Argentina, and the economic problems of the working class (and with social or paid jobs) are older than we thought.
And that’s where Mills was, steering the ship when an untimely asteroid storm crashes it to Earth. You are not the only survivor. There’s also Koa (Ariana Greenblatt), a girl who doesn’t understand a word of English – thank goodness Adam Driver does, because otherwise we wouldn’t understand anything either. The fact is that the environment is rough: there are dinosaurs attacking, hungry.
But presumably they’ve never tasted human flesh, or what Mills and Koa have. It is well said that when there is hunger there is no stale bread.
Luckily for Mills and Koa, dinosaurs don’t do as Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg taught us Jurassic Park: that velociraptors attack in threes, two from the side and one from the front. Here are some insects that, if they aren’t birds of prey, are second cousins. But they are half geese (sorry for the distinction of species). And Mills has a high-tech weapon to defend himself and Koa.
As in “The Last of Us”, but no
Mills’ relationship with the girl is like that of an adoptive father, and she, as a surrogate daughter, happens to be the same, the same in The Last of Us. It’s strange that Driver has chosen this role, given the final result, because he generally focuses on independent films, and if he goes mainstream, to commercials, there are enough reservoirs to fill the halls.
This would not be the case.
And Greenblatt, which we saw on a piece of paper in the heights -she is the daughter of a Puerto Rican mother- and we will see her in the middle of the year Barbiewith Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, he knows the times and doesn’t clash.
Nor is it Beck and Wood’s directorial debut, as they have on their resume The house of terror (hunting) AND The bride wears blood. Yes, when they directed they had turned more to terror, than suspense as in a place in silence.
Similarly, Scott Beck and Bryan Wood write shorts. It is not known whether he was in a hurry, because the internet is running out or they have few ideas and prefer to squeeze them. a place in silence it lasted 90 minutes, and this one 93. But in this case, and given how it ends and how weak the film is, it is likely that someone from the production has decided to cut the duration.
It is well known: when a film does not finish convincing, and it is estimated that it will not last long on the bill, investors – let’s assume not Sam Raimi, who is one of the producers – pray because that first weekend, first mouth in mouth mate, they have many more steps, functions per room, to be able to collect something more and recover the investment. It’s not the same that it lasts two hours rather than an hour and a half.
It’s not new.
