So, it's a movie review, of a movie I'm only half way into....
But...it's less of a review of the actual movie but just moreso of the writer and the general "tone" of these films.
Luc Besson, I've had this movie in my possession for awhile and I've meant to watch it, I guess time just gets away from me. But in my last movie
review it was brought up as a req, which just spurred my desire to watch a film I already intended on watching.
I'm a faltering movie buff, years back I watched EVERYTHING. In the past 5 years I've distanced myself and have been more of a pick and choose when it
comes to films. But I've always had a bit of a eye for certain genres and those that produce within it. What initially drew me to Anna??? Again, luc
I'm a huge fan of his, as I'm sure anyone would be if they like his unique flare for a usually formulaic action film.
It's possible many don't even know his name, but they will if they realize he's been behind some of the best action films and has introduced one of
the best action stars in the current biz.
Luc has been behind a lot of epic films of the 90's and early 00's.
La Femme Nikita, Point of no Return, Leon(I love jean reno, shout out to ronin), Fifth Element, Transporter(I'd argue he truly put statham on the
map), From Paris with Love(a travolta hidden gem), and of course the first taken film.
This man delivers and his mechanism may be pretty basic, but it works. So Anna, is just another vehicle for him to use the usual "hot euro babe" and
as usual she is smokin and deadly, a usual action vehicle to make another good watchable movie.
It's a formula that works. Sometimes to better effect than others, but he's churning out what most viewers love. A good action movie and occasionally
he hits a home run. While I feel that Anna isn't one of his best, it's a movie that I, as a Luc fan, will always give my time too. In the end you
can't always break the mold with a scifi esque fantasy movie like Fifth Element, or project a star like Statham, but on the whole it's consistent
action stories that put butts in seats and make people walk away "happy".
