Scary Slow Cinema One Man Show

Sometimes in cinema less is more. Robert Redford showcased this in 2013´s All Is Lost and Paul Walker does in Hours filmed in the same year and of course being Walker´s final film. I would not call Hours a catastrophe film. Hurricane Katrina is over and it´s aftermath begins very early in the film. Essentially it is a very scary and eerie survival film taking place in an empty hospital where a young fathers fights for the survival of his newborn baby against, well, all and everything fate sees fit to throw at him. The beautiful city of New Orleans is just a backdrop - the film could take place in an empty space ship for all it matters. But is it as empty as Paul Walker´s character first fears and later hopes? This is slow cinema at it´s best as the task of keeping the baby alive gets harder and the anticipation of some kind of turn of events builds up over time. That´s why it´s called Hours. Yes sir, an action film it is not. At the time many reviewers seemed to think that this was some kind of a mistake or a way for the team to make a film cheaply. Well, since then writer-director Eric Heisserer wrote Arrival, so few would think that now. He knew what he was doing. So which one is the best in the one-man-against-pretty-much-the-rest-of-the-universe genre, the Martian (2016), 127 Hours (2010), Cast Away (2000), All Is Lost already mentioned or Hours? I love them all, but somehow Hours seems to stretch it´s obviously limited budget and gives more edge-of-the-seat adrenalin per buck.

A slow-moving character drama

I saw HOURS described as a disaster movie but it's anything but. Instead it's a single location character drama for the most part, as the late Paul Walker is the sole resident of an evacuated hospital in New Orleans at the time of Hurricane Katrina. He can't leave as he has to keep his premature baby's incubator running by hand. Instead of thrills and spills, this is a quiet and dialogue based, exploring universal themes of courage and parenthood, grief and responsibility. Walker's okay - he was always a better actor than people expected given his popularity in the Fast & Furious films - but the pacing is slow and the direction fails to inspire, the movie only coming to life in the last 20 minutes or so.

Paul Walker gives an amazing performance!!

A father struggles to keep his infant daughter alive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. I saw Hours long before Paul Walker's death and i have to say this movie was really great his performance is really the best part of it and Genesis Rodriguez is also great in the movie although it sure has it's flaws for example the narrative and the introduction of characters for just to turn the film kinda in an action film was kinda wrong but besides that the movie truly works and it's really good if not great and if you were a big fan of Paul Walker you will not be disappointed trust me a 6.5 is pretty low and it truly doesn't deserve it.
