It’s a silent movie about the death of silent movie industry. Not so accurately portrayed maybe, but remember, it’s just a movie. Cartoonish? Predictable? Of course, it’s an ‘oldie’, right? Well, of course, it doesn’t have to be like that, but here we are.
But, just because it’s a new film that poses as an old silent film, an homage if you want, doesn’t mean it automatically is a great film. But, Jean Dujardin is really an entertaining good actor, at least, in this movie.
And last but not least, your lip-reading skill will be improved.
My Rating: 6/10
