"Collateral Beauty" ini sepertinya cocok untuk kamu yang lagi putus asa dan menyerah pada keadaan sulit yang sedang kamu alami. Sama seperti Howard Inlet, ia baru saja mengalami tragedi yang amat menyayat hatinya. Karakter Inlet yang kuat, smart dan berkharisma merupakan salah satu kelebihan dari film ini. Selain itu, lewat film ini kita bisa belajar untuk mensyukuri setiap kejadian seburuk dan seterpuruk apapun itu. Karena yakin deh, di balik kesedihan itu pasti ada kebahagiaan yang terselip di dalamnya walaupun kita belum sadar.
I absolutely loved this movie. It was very touching and sometimes extremely hard to watch at times. I strongly recommend watching this movie.
Pros: Acting was magnificent, especially Will Smith. He really captivates the audience with this one. The story line was well thought out and east to folly. Anyone could easily to relate to the situations/characters. It also had a wonderful surprise ending.
Cons: A little on the long side I would have liked for them to have gone deeper into the 3 abstract concepts.
You will enjoy this movie. I suggest you bring a tissue too.
Look, it's obvious from the trailers, this is a sad movie.
But anyone who watched the trailers knows that. You know what you are going into. It is very formulaic, but the acting is good. Even the little parts are good. I would say if you watched and liked "The Fault in Our Stars" this is a good movie for you. It focuses on interpersonal relationships and the raw emotions that come with tragedy. If you are looking to cry, but definitely feel something, this is the movie for you.
I feel like a lot of the negative hype may come from expecting more from the movie than was ever promised. Two of the main actors are known as taking action movie roles. This movie was never marketed as an action movie, though. It was advertised as a drama about a man who had lost his child. That is exactly what it is. Sure there are some unexpected turns, but at the end of the day, don't expect what was never advertised to be there.
Namun sayang Moeslemates, "Collateral Beauty" sudah tidak lagi tayang di bioskop. Saya pun cukup kaget melihat jadwal tayangnya yang terbilang agak cepat.
