Today on KARZ-TV’s morning show I reviewed two films, “21 Jump Street” and “John Carter.”
“21 Jump Street” stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as two young police officers who are sent undercover as students to a high school to bust a growing drug ring. The film is loosely based on the 80′s TV show of the same name, which made a star of then-newcomer Johnny Depp.
Once back in high school, Hill and Tatum discover that high school rules have changed and what was uncool when they were students has now become hip. Hill and Tatum have good chemistry and their acting skills complement each other.
“21 Jump Street” is a fun, raunchy, classic buddy movie that I thoroughly enjoyed.
“John Carter” is directed by Andrew Stanton in his live-action directing debut after directing animated hits such as ‘Wall-E” and “Finding Nemo.”
“John Carter” stars Taylor Kitsch as the title character and he plays a Civil War veteran who finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars where the planet is in the midst of its own Civil War.
Carter must decide on whether or not to fight or sit on the sidelines, and of course, there is a princess who just might need saving. Although, in this film, the princess, played by Lynn Collins, can easily defend herself.
The film is visually impressive, but the storyline is confusing at times and the plot doesn’t quite gel.
