An unique spark and charm!
21 April 2016 | by mistoppiSee all my reviews

First of all, the soundtrack was good. Especially Norman Greenbaum's Spirit In The Sky suited the first gun fight scene excellently, and if by then you had no idea what kind of action movie Mr. Right is, that scene tells it to you straight.

Anna Kendrick is amazing as Martha, a girl so quirky you don't know if she's just weird or if there's actually something even more weird going on his head. Also the way Martha shook off "Mr. Right"'s comments on killing people made me wonder several times if she thinks he is joking, or if she just doesn't care too much, because he is so perfect for her. Sam Rockwell is an interesting choice for "Mr. Right". When Martha first meets him, he comes off pretty creepy, and while Rockwell is still very charming, he still seems dangerous. Even the viewer is suspicious of whether or not to trust him, mostly because we have already seen what he does, but he just seems so nice, but it's masking how creepy he is, but that is kind of destroying how sweet and charming he is, and so on. Right then and there it's a vicious cycle, but of course when we learn more, we trust more.

The romantic side of the film is interesting. The romance between "Mr. Right" and Martha is cute, but you feel like it shouldn't be. He seems older and kind of creepy, Martha just broke up with someone and also doesn't realise how her new, uh, boyfriend is actually a killer. But their chemistry just is astonishing. Of course there are a lot of problems in their relationship if you start analysing it, but they just seem like the perfect, cute, quirky couple.

The action side of the film is very excellent. The scenes are fun to follow, and "Mr. Right"'s skills make them even more interesting.

The character "Mr: Right" is probably meant to seem quite mysterious in the beginning, because nothing is said about him or the origin of his skills immediately. But for some reason that mystery doesn't seem that interesting than other plot-lines in the story. I was more interested to see the action scenes, Hopper's hunt for "Mr. Right", the development of the romance and I wanted to see Martha become a proper action girl. When the information about who "Mr. Right" actually is, it's just like "Okay sure". It doesn't seem like an important detail.

If I'd have to compare Mr. Right with another movie, it would probably be Seven Psychopaths. The reasons for that are Sam Rockwell in both movies, the humour, and just something about the plot, probably how there are several different plans and goals we are following all of them.

Mr. Right is a fun action movie. The plot seems original enough, and the film is interesting to follow. It has a certain spark and a charm. What more do you need?
