Watch it WITHOUT expectations. It's NOT a war or sci fi movie!,
This review is from: Branded [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I just watched this movie and enjoyed it so much I decided to get on Amazon to review it (which is an EXTREMELY rare thing). I'm quite shocked after getting on here to see how low the reviews are from other people. I think that may be due to a miss "branding" (pun not really intended, but it is a good one!) of the movie oddly enough. I don't think they marketed this movie correctly. Which is extremely odd considering the whole movie is about marketing.
Maybe people don't like it because it's more informative than it is entertaining at times. It's not really a movie for shallow thinkers. If you're looking for a science-fiction thriller or shoot em up type movie this is not the movie for you. Perhaps another reason people don't like it is because the cover of the movie makes it appear as though it's a science fiction or war movie and it's not. It's also NOT A FAMILY MOVIE. Kids won't understand it or like it. If your kid watches it and likes it, then you probably have a child prodigy on your hands, lol. I will just have to say if you watch it with an open mind you will most likely like it.
This is one of those rare movies that humanity is better for having it. I don't know if other people don't understand it or what, but this movie is a rare treasure. It gives you a true idea of how wars between corporations are waged. I don't think anyone could watch this movie and not feel like they are more knowledgeable afterwards. If they do, then maybe they weren't bright enough to comprehend it. It's one of those movies that I'm surprised they allowed it to be released. It does drag at first and maybe that's where a lot of people give up, but hang in there it's well worth it if you are capable of deeper thinking than most people.
