Amber Heard Looks Stunning In This Marketing Spoof
on December 14, 2013
The only reason I checked this movie out was because Amber Heard was it in and I'm not disappointed that I did. She has a major role in the film and looks absolutely stunning on screen.
The movie itself takes a clear swing at how easily manipulated people are by the advertisements that we see each and every day. The premise is a bit far fetched, but I do believe that was the point. Heard plays a marketing exec named Six who is pitched the idea for a new energy drink by a slacker named Scat played by Shiloh Frenandez. Being a slacker, he doesn't have a formula or anything special at all, all he really has is the name which is a different spelling of the "F word." Of course he doesn't trademark the name but his best friend does netting the friend the million dollar payday.
If you're looking for a movie that is realistic and makes perfect sense than you'll probably find "Syrup" lacking. If you're willing to go along for the ride and enjoy the humor that is how easily we fall victim to advertisers than you'll probably like this movie a lot.
