News of the world Review

What is the News of the world movie about ?

It is a very nice movie with the famous and talented Tom Hanks that no one expected anything less from him, it is definitely worth watching but you should be aware before watching it. What I would like to emphasize is that it is a kind of movie action, adventure, drama but it is more of an emotional movie and not an action movie so do not expect to watch a western movie because you saw pictures from that time in the trailer.

In general, the movie is a bit slow, but it is worth watching because it has an interesting plot and the play of Tom Hanks takes the movie to the top. I'm sure that is a good movie but if Tom Hanks did not play this role the movie would be very mediocre and would go unnoticed, it is one of the movies that thanks to the actor took such a large scale.

Pros and cons of News of the world movie:

The positives of the film are many like the acting of Tom Hanks which was very good and such films that have an emotional character are the right kind for him to play.

I really liked the direction of the film that took you to another era where the real things were a bit different then compared to now.

It also sends us a very good message in our lives as if it tells us that sometimes we need and can be helped by a stranger without any benefit from it, this is called a person with a good soul and if everyone was like that this world would be wonderful . The negatives that made the film lose a bit of its ratings are that in the first minutes of the film it gave you the feeling that the events were taking place quickly and in the middle of the film you felt that it was going slow and that made it not have a very good balance .

And the second negative is that since it also states a kind of action movie, the audience would expect in the two hours of movie that it watches to have a little more action and less meaningless speeches.
