The Interview (2014)


Seth Rogen
James Franco

Directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg

If you have not seen this movie, I advice that you put all you are doing aside and go see it. I would not be offended if you put reading this review on hold to go watch it, it is magnificently funny.

For me James Franco has proven to be an actor to watch out for in the future, he delivers every time he is on screen and makes any movie he is in worth seeing. Seth Rogen on the other hand to me has been a disappointment when it comes to movies. I just never find his kind of movie funny and I feel he is a little too celebrated and he has gotten too many screen time.

That being said, why I liked this movie and laughed hard at the jokes can be said to be due to the long awaited wait to see it. Due to a group known as the "Guardians of Peace", a group the FBI believes has ties to North Korea. Hacked into Sony Pictures Entertainment and leaked several then-upcoming Sony films and sensitive internal information. The group demanded that Sony pull The Interview from the cinemas, a movie which they referred to as "the movie of terrorism".

But later on the movie got released in cinemas December 25th and on the web.

North Korea and the Guardians of Peace have instead made this movie a must watch and even given Sony a chance to recoup the financial damage they have done.

The movie was actually developed to feature the assassination of Kim Jong-il, but after he died and his son Kim Jong-un assumed power, well the writers redirected their focus to the new supreme leader.

The movie plot is about two friends, one a talk show host David "Dave" Skylark (James Franco) and the other his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen). Both got approached by the CIA to assassinate the North Korea leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park).

What lead to this approach was, Dave and Aaron were able to get Kim Jong-un to feature on their show, as it was written that Kim Jong-un loved the talk show Skylark Tonight.

What you will love best in this movie, is David "Dave" Skylark. His ignorance and stupidity is beyond normal to the point that every time he opens his mouth nothing meaningful comes out.

Well, I advise again you go see this movie, because here is a guarantee of laughter Sony packed for the viewers and North Korea wanted to deny us from.
