Ridiculously Under-rated! Fantastic Movie!
11 May 2008 | by pookiexSee all my reviews

I work the night shift in a hotel; so I regularly watch late-night films to keep myself awake- and that's how I stumbled across this one at 2am in the morning.

When I started watching it, I immediately assumed that it was going to be just another throw-away movie; a pretty lead actress, dominating male role alongside, and we're introduced to a side-plot which we assume will eventually merge into a love-interest.

Well, how wrong was I? Not only did this film decide to throw things in the air and tip the balances that are so often routinely reinforced in almost every movie that comes out these days, but the acting abilities of the cast were stunning! You could really empathise and care about each of them, the storyline keeps you interested, and I didn't find myself wanting to turn over from a cringe-worthy one liner or throwaway comment once! I only found out this film was by Luc Besson a few moments ago- but after seeing this film, plus 'angel-a' (another of his wonders!), I will most definitely be adding him to my list of favourite directors.

Fantastic film; 9 out of 10- it lost a point because I couldn't hear the music all that well over the top of the very noisy steam-compressor at work, so I hold back that point until I know whether or not there are any clever sound intricacies that I like.

I most definitely recommend this title- especially to fans of 'step up' who will be amazed not only by the far superior dancing, acting and storyline, but will love the fact that this movie is devoid of Disney's home-brand default trash sexism and clichés.

WATCH THIS! -pookie x
