Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.
Plot: The quiet life of Baker Dill, a fishing boat captain who lives on the isolated Plymouth Island, where he spends his days obsessed with capturing an elusive tuna while fighting his personal demons, is interrupted when someone from his past comes to him searching for help.

This is insane, which is why I really like it. It’s original, it had my attention throughout the entire runtime, and I can’t remember the last time I got this many chills–maybe never! I’ll admit it fails to ever become cohesive but it’s got so much fucking flavour that I can’t not gulp it down. What would one call this? Artsy schlock? This is artsy schlock. This is my initial rating upon a first watch; it is possible I will feel differently about the film on a second watch.
One of the weirder films I’ve seen recently. And I like weird, I just don’t like… This. Credit where credit’s due though, both Anne Hathaway and Jason Clarke are **one hundred percent** believable in their roles, which is impressive given the setting, and… Terrifying, given their relationship dynamic.
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
Love the mystery concept idea about the story but the direction is dull, script is flat with characters, and it is forgettable.
Serenity (2.5 out of 5 stars).
Serenity sure is something for a neo-noir thriller film that does mislead you on what the actual plot is about. Matthew McConaughey delivered a good performance. Sadly, the film falls flat as a mystery thriller that tries play smart but gives you an empty satisfying result. Kind of reminded me how the sci-fi thriller Transcendence film with Johnny Depp was. Delivered an interesting mind bending concept but an empty satisfaction of the results.
The plot follows Baker (Matthew McConaughey) who lives in a small town on an island. He is obsessed on trying to catch a large tuna fish known as “Justice.” So obsessed, he pushes aside his own visitors that pay him to take them out to sea. When his ex wife Karen (Anne Hathaway) shows up on the island. She asks for his help to take her husband Frank (Jason Clarke) out to sea and kill him. Cause he has been abusing her and her son.
That is enough what I can say about the plot without giving away details or spoilers. Besides, it is one of those movies were the plot changes gears in the middle of the second act. With a lot of people on the island being suspicious and not knowing a clue about anything. Or a stranger Reid (Jeremy Strong) that shows up in a suit and is creepily staring at Matthew McConaughey throughout. Or walking through the ocean in a suit. The film does have a great amount of mystery ideas. With Baker being obsessed with this tuna fish. Figuring out everyone’s motive on the island. The twist is a game changer that turns the film into a different direction. It is not as surprising or shocking when it is revealed.
Matthew McConaughey delivered a good performance as Baker. Along with Anne Hathaway. Jason Clarke was okay playing an abusive character. The direction is kind of dull. It tries to build some suspense and mystery. Instead, it is a tedious thriller that is forgettable.
Overall, Serenity is a bad film. It started out great. It has an interesting concept of ideas with this mystery building of people being weird on an island. After the twist is revealed, it did not leave a satisfying shock factor besides it probably will be forgettable once the credits begin.
Mash up of genres that leaves a bad taste
Steven Knight is a prolific writer who has very few titles as a director under his belt. This is his follow up to Locke, a movie I quite enjoyed. It has star power, production value and an intriguing screenplay. So what went wrong? I think the main problem with this movie is that it tries to be many different things without being very good at any of them. It’s not a very good noir, it’s not a very good drama, it’s not a very good thriller and ultimately it’s not a very good sci-fiish tale. This also has the effect of confusing the audience that can’t grasp what kind of movie they are watching. I’m all for originality and something different, but the execution needs to be good to pull off something this ambitious, Dark City being a good example of something like this that works. And I’m no prude but am I the only one to be bothered by the fact that this hypersexualized story is created by a little kid? This illustrates quite well the bad taste this movie left on me.
