New ‘The Raven’ Movie Delivered OK Mystery,Action,Thrills & More
New ‘The Raven’ movie delivered OK mystery,action,thrills & more. Relativity Media released their new thriller flick “The Raven” into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out,and I thought it was jut ok as it was sort of slow-moving for my taste. However,there were moments where it did liven up quite a bit,and I enjoyed that. The movie stars: John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson,and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
In the new flick,an extremely crazy man takes Edgar Allen Poe’s (John Cusack) fictional murder books to heart,and starts using the plotlines to carry out real murders in the exact same way. A young detective Fields recognizes the killer is using Edgar’s work to plot his murders,so he recruits Edgar to work with him on trying to locate the killer.
Unfortunately,the murders escalate into a deadly game of cat and mouse,resulting in the murderer kidnapping Edgar’s lover Emily Hamilton. After that,Edgar and the crew,use clues that the killer gives them,to try and find the location of Emily. The first location,results in a violent ambush that involved shooting,and more vicious murdering.
Finally,Poe decides to write a new column in which he tells the killer that he’s tired of the games,and is willing to exchange his life for Emily’s. Eventually,Poe gets tipped off to who the killer might be,and it leads to a chilling and sad conclusion that also serves up a touch of revenge to cap things off.
Again,it was just an ok movie for me. However,there were some really great moments,especially towards the end when things really started to pick up. I gave the movie a solid C+ grade. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
