Review - the Jacket



Ok..this movie was from 2005, I'm waaaayyyyyy left behind sometimes..esp if those movies were not shown in our local cinemas.


I dont normally watched DVDs...95% of the movies we watched are either at the cinemas or ASTRO, reason being..we (my husband and I) couldn't give 100% concentration due to our piranhas kids who constantly seeking our undivided attentions..so even on ASTRO we only watched movies showing at night..when their 'batteries' are running low so we can have more concentration:)


Last week, remember a friend of mine who just dumped his long-time boyfriend? yess..she handed me a bag full of old DVDs which they considered as "harta sepencarian" which she desperately needs to dispose..so we divided among 3 friends, as usual I get to do it first leaving the left overs to the other unlucky two :( (pat..pat siku lipat..sapa cepat dia dapat...muaahaaahaaaaa!!!)


I'm a sucker for thriller and horror movies..so among those stories I decided to watched 'THE JACKET' as from the cover it looks like a horror movie to me...


The story is about a gulf war veteran who's wrongly sent to a mental intitution after apparently shoot a police officer which he simply does not remember. At the ward, he had to go through a treament which he's putting on "the jacket" which made him goes on journey to the future


The storyline was quite slow..but as it progressed I got hooked especially seeing the chemistry between Adrien Brody and Keira Knightley:) ..(so you peeps must be asking..which is the horror part?) yesss..basically it's not horror at all..they categorized this as 'thriller' even that I do not find much thrill except the chemistry of the two..:)


The verdict :

I love both Adrien and Keira (I was never a fan of Adrien Brody..i find this nose is too prominent..until I watched this movie..hikssss) and by the way, love the ending toooo...made it worth my 2 hours





she's flawlessly beautiful, isn't she?


until next time...
