Perfect cast and a good story
Captivating movie !
I wanted to like it more than I actually did... But much of the humor totally escaped me and I walked out only mildly impressed.
Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.
Movie starts wonderfully... the last 40 minutes.. good lord, terrible. The chick who plays the female cop is a pretty terrible actress as well.Colin Farell... eh... does better than I expected.Anthony Hopkins has a legendary performance as usual, but it's not enough to save this movie.
Watching SOLACE, you feel like you're taking part in a WALKING DEAD cast reunion, with seemingly half the actors from that show turning up at one point or another. The lead is none other than Negan himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, playing an FBI agent on the trail of a serial killer whose method is to alleviate the lives of those living in pain. In a plot that feels more than a little copied from SILENCE OF THE LAMBS - albeit with a supernatural twist - he calls in retired psychic Anthony Hopkins to help him out. What follows is occasionally shocking but more often than not predictable, as Hopkins uses his super-senses to close in on the enemy who is always one step ahead. Colin Farrell eventually shows up as the villain in an underwhelming performance, and there's an occasional surprise twist that works well. However, SOLACE is spoilt by the breakdown of the story in the last third, with things descending into 'mannequin challenge' style special effects and even a little MATRIX-style 'bullet time'. I found this rather disappointing given the careful set-up of all that came previously.
This movie shows mercy killing. to me there is no dilemma!
when you get terminally sick and there is no way out!
The best way is to not suffer. I am personally very ill for 4 years with ongoing pain and suffering. That is why i can relate. if i had kwiwn 4 years ago ehat hell would i go through and pain. I think he is doing them a huge favour. oming from personal experience!
Also Anthony hopkins very great job and Colin farrell nothing less also very great acting
According to trivia notes, this was pencilled in as a potential sequel to Se7en. Thankfully that was overruled, but if the same director and script editors had been on hand as with Se7en, then we might have got an excellent film.It's a psychic cop redrafted back into the police to capture a psychic villain. That's it really.Anthony Hopkins leads a cast who are not in the same league as himself, and it clearly shows. Despite that, the script doesn't often help, and the director is clearly out of his depth with this one. So much could have been done.What should be a taut storyline, really isn't. The premise of psychic cops and villain, doesn't ever convince or leave on edge, and there seems to have been soft porn takes added in as it would be the only talking point for some, and kind of devalued the film. It never added to anything.It's not by any means the poorest movie you'll see of late, but it's one that one will best be left for late night satellite film TV stations as a filler. Nothing more. Disappointing.
