Hello everyone and welcome to my second movie review! Today I'll be writing about the movie 'Big Game'. I post this for your and my entertainment while playing KaW. If you have seen the movie or will see it please let me know what you think of it. If you don't feel like commenting, enjoy the read anyway! Directed by: Jalmari Helander Cast: Samuel L. Jackson (President Moore), Onni Tommila (Oskari), Ray Stevenson (Morris), Jim Broadbent (Herbert), Victor Garber (Vice President), Mehmet Kurtulus (Hazar) length: 110 minutes We have seen several action movies about a United States president who is being protected by a hero fighting against gangs of dangerous terrorists. Just a couple of years ago for example, when Antoine Fuqua and Roland Emmerich competed eachother by releasing Olympus Has Fallen and White House Down around the same time. Big Game director Jalmari Helander changed the familiar design on two points. Firstly, the action takes place in the wooded wilds of Finland. Second, the protector of this president is a thirteen year old boy. It would be a wise move for Samuel L. Jackson to choose another airline. First it was stuffed with bloodthirsty snakes, then it was shot down. President Moore, the role played by Jackson in this movie, lands safely on the ground in his rescue capsule. But the danger has not yet passed since a freaky professional hunter with a gang of terrorist scum is going after the greatest trophy in the forests of Finland: the US president. Fortunately for Moore, not a rebel but a small Finnish boy is who frees him from his predicament shelter. The young Oskari is in fact working on a nightly ritual into adulthood, which is to catch a prey on his thirteenth birthday in the wilderness to prove his manhood. The boy has a long way to go to be able to follow in the footsteps of his heroic father. Together with Samuel L. Jackson they form an unusual but great duo. Specially since Jacksons character isn't such a tough guy at all, unlike most movies he's in. A great thing about Helanders film is that Big Game does not seem to take itself too seriously. The action and the one-liners are often over the top, as well as the great filled in villain roles. The continuous switching to scenes in the Pentagon, where the actor Jim Broadbent preforms as a terrorist expert from the CIA following the developments in the Finnish forests, regularly gets the speed out of the story. Especially since the film is on the short side it feels that you do not see as much action as you'd expect. It's still a movie worth watching. Stylistically Big Game is nicely in line with both the multitude action films of the eighties and nineties as adventurous films à la Spielberg, especially given the modest budget which is quite an achievement. An action picture aimed at a younger audience may initially sound like a silly idea, but the nostalgic atmosphere makes up for it. The L in Samuel L. Jackson stands for something special after all!! The movie worked out quite good in my opinion and scored above average. watch the trailer here! I hope you enjoyed reading my review of Big Game. I used some of the information from a website in my country. I look forward to reading your opinions about this movie. Have a great day!
