Bless me Father, for I have sinned. My last blog post was 464 days ago. Since my last post, there has honestly been several movies worth the key strokes. Alas, the lazy virus took the best of me. Luckily, I had a 24-hour energy boaster drink that allowed me to write these words..
Psychiatrist Hector (Simon Pegg) finally sees the bore that is his life. He abruptly decides to leave his perfect girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike) to go on a global journey in search of happiness. Thus unfolds the adventure of a life time.
As expected, you will experience Pegg’s amazing comedy. But, you will be surprised by his skills as an actor. His ability to transfer his scene’s emotions to you are just unbelievable.
Adding to Pegg’s performance; you are treated with a great soundtrack, artistic use of Hector’s travel journal, and the great cameo performances (including Jean Reno, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgard, and Toni Collette). Hopefully, this will be enough to entice you to add this to the must see list. Because by the time you reach the credits, you will be filled with a warm light.
