Amit’s Recco of The Week : Big Nothing
Big Nothing, a rather unusual title to have for a movie. But at the same time a rather catchy one too. Big Nothing falls in the genre of a comedy/thriller. And is one movie you shouldn’t miss.
Movie Runtime: 86 min.
The Story: Gus is a call center employee, Charlie is an ex-teacher out of job and Josie McBroom is a teen beauty pageant. All three join hands to black mail a Reverend.They make a full proof plan to extract money from the Reverend. But no plan is full -proof. Things get out of hand for the trio when the Reverend is murdered and they find out they are in for some real big trouble. I will not reveal much as it will only spoil the suspense.
Acting: David Schwimmer as the Charlie is brilliant. His recitations of statistical accounts based on the current situation is rather funny. Also Simon Pegg as Gus is fantastic. Alice Eve as Josie Mcbroom is rather sexy and brings out a naughty charm in her character. The chemistry between David and Simon is in fact the biggest strength of the film. Other actors do not have much of a role and are okay in whatever they have to perform.
The thrills of the movie and the sudden twists in the movie leave you captivated. And most of the times you are left surprised. The pace of the movie is rather quick and the constant humor that is blended in with the murder mystery leaves you smiling.
The only draw-back is the ending that could have been made more powerful considering the feel of the entire movie. in fact the ending had me disappointed.
But anyways Big Nothing is one movie that you got to watch. A total TIME-PASS film for your weekend entertainment. Rent a dvd and catch the movie, you do not want to miss this one. Ten minutes into the film and you shall realize that you haven’t made a mistake watching this one.
Movie Rating -7/10
