The Family (2013)- Review
Holy shit, I just got done watching The Family directed by Luc Besson. It stared Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dianna Agron, John D’Leo, and Tommy Lee Jones. It was fucking good.
There are almost too many good things to say about this movie. It had great writing, the action sequences were immaculate, and the comedic timing was kind of that amazing deadpanned comedy that you always get from Tommy Lee Jones that makes him famous. Not to mention the in-depth look into the life of a family that has been turned upside down by the threat of death and the unstable drama that comes with one always having to look over ones shoulder, and having to always assimilate to a new community and culture.
It was definitely an obscure crime, action, comedy, drama, really. It had everything from familial feels, to murder, to romance.
I really want to shout out my undying love for the actor and actress who played Belle and Warren Blake, Diana Agron and John D’Leo. They were literally two of the best actors I’ve seen on screen in all of my years of watching movies. They had great dynamic, they were those two siblings that you would just love to have and love to watch really.
As always the amazing Tommy Lee Jones, Robert De Niro, and Michelle Pfeiffer are awesome in any part they play. They have that quality about them that made them the legends that they are. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie that Tommy Lee Jones has been attached to that hasn’t been extraordinarily quality work. You can see that those three really take the time to make the best out of any script they’re given.
And also the support staff was amazing and I commend them and the crew for producing such an wonderful film!
I urge you, if you are a fan of immaculate acting, obscure movies, deadpanned comedy, drama, and crime, and are of the proper age; then you should definitely see this movie.
