If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Every so often, a movie comes along with limited hype, passes you by when it was released in the theaters, and only heard of this a few days ago before picking it up from my local Blockbuster… that movie is Chloe. The plot sounded intriguing, had three good actors/actresses that I enjoy, and it was billed as a sexual thriller. Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, and Amanda Seyfried star in the eroticism that is Chloe. The story surrounds Catherine (Moore) who believes her husband (Neeson) is cheating on her and meets Chloe (Seyfried), who is shown to be a prostitute/callgirl type. Catherine asks Chloe to see what would happen if she seduced her husband and the story begins…
The Acting: I haven’t liked Amanda Seyfried really until this movie to be honest, before her roles in the films I’ve seen her in, Dear John and Jennifer’s Body, I wasn’t a fan at all. In fact, I felt she made me dislike those films even more. I’ve heard she was good in Letters to Juliet, but I haven’t seen that one. Oh yeah, she was also in Mean Girls, but thankfully she doesn’t play characters like she did in that one anymore. In Chloe, she was given a good story to work with and she ran with it. I’ll be looking forward to seeing Red Riding Hood with her as Red in 2011 now.
The… Chemistry?: I wouldn’t call this a spoiler since the kiss was apparently heard around the world, but the chemistry between Julianne Moore and Amanda Seyfried was spot on and believable. They do have a kissing scene, come to think about it, she did with Megan Fox as well in Jennifer’s Body. But, they went further in this one. A full on, lesbian sex scene happened for about a minute and was very surprised that the two agreed to do that.
The Ending: I wasn’t a big fan on how the movie ended, pretty dumb to be honest. I heard that Chloe was a remake, I’m not sure if the ending was the same in that one, but it came completely out of nowhere and completely idiotic in how it was handled. I like the metaphor that was expressed while this happened, but I don’t like the stupidity of it.
The Son: Max Thieriot was one of the worst acting performances I’ve ever seen on the screen. Damnit, I hated seeing this kid in the movie.
Chloe was a very interesting movie, it dragged slow sometimes, but I forgave it. It draws you in with the thriller aspect of it and has you wondering what exactly is going on with Chloe herself, as well as the husband and wife. I just didn’t like the ending very much and that brought my overall enjoyment down a few notches. I will still give this a recommendation though, just sit back and watch for 1 hour and 36 minutes of a pretty good movie.
