Five out of Seven on the Chelsea’s Reviews Dramatic Level Meter

I really enjoyed this movie. I had a feeling that Justin Timberlake was going to be an aweful actor, but he was actually really good. It was based on the story of Jesse James Hollywood, which is the only fault throughout the film. Not that it was based on the Jesse James case, but that they changed the names for the film. I understand the changing of the names for the acting part of the film, but it would make sense to use the actual names during the end facts. During the last minutes of the film they layed out the sentences that each person recieved for there part in the murder, but they used the fake names which made it very confusing. The cast did an excellent job; Bruce Willis, Matthew Barry, Emile Hirsch, Fernando Vargas, Justin Timberlake, Shawn Hatosy. It was sad, it was funny, it was really fun to watch.



Surprisingly enough this movie was really well done. I was very familiar with the Jesse James Hollywood story and this movie did an excellent job laying out the series of events. And then there’s Justin Timberlake who unexpectedly showed himself to be a good actor. He did a very very good job int his film, he was funny, and after watching that film he is no longer the N’sync guy who makes me laugh with his high-pitched voice..but hes a man who can act and sing very well. This movie was sad, and funny, and i really enjoyed watching it. It is one i recommend to all those who seen that Justin was going to be in it and laughed…because trust me, you will be shocked.
