The Hummingbird Project can be a raw and real look at the cost of determination. It moves along at a solid pace and ends on a beautifully framed and melancholy shot that is bound to make you think.
Much like Paul Greengrass with last year's 22 July, Maras drops us right into the center of the action and barely lets his foot off the gas long enough to let the audience catch its breath over the course of two hours.
This is the car chase that produced countless loving imitations. It's a thrilling sequence that holds up amazingly well fifty years after it's release.
The best horror films from the US in the past 9 years.
Spielberg and Hanks have done it again.
I'm not precisely sure what i just saw, but I know it was pretty damn good, in an extremely uncomfortable way.
I really liked this, as Greengrass is a master of realistic tension, especially when the story is taken from a real life scenario (much as he showed in 2018 with 22 July).
This is psychological tension at its finest, slowly building steam toward an explosive finale and a final shot that borders on brilliance.
There are some absolutely amazing shots composed throughout the film, and everything is elevated by Shapiro's score and Kidman's fearless performance.
I really appreciate a quiet little thriller like this that can exist without action sequences or memorable set pieces and still be engaging.
This film definitely has some big ideas about free will, higher powers, escapism and what it truly means to love someone, but the execution is certainly clunky.
You know those movies that aren't very good, and yet...they are undeniably awesome? For me, this was exactly that type of movie.
Sometimes we all need a fresh set of eyes to identify the best parts of ourselves amidst the shadows and darkness that encapsulate our thoughts.
This is a solid thriller that does a lot of things right without doing anything remarkable.
The direction and action overcame the script issues I had, and I really appreciated the quality of the set pieces.
