A sublte masterpiece

The story is a secondary thing, acting was the main stuff. Robert D J deserved an oscar. concentrate on the way of acting, the ironical side, and then you can recognise a teather piece, in an unusual way. Of course is "demential", but it is a kind of special one.

Comedic Satire On All War Movies

For the first time I can recall, Tom Cruise attempted to visually get into a character rather than be the Top Gun pretty boy, as it took me a while to be certain it was him as a balding and stocky chap. This movie kicks off with the filming of a big budget war movie. They are over budget and there is strife on the set. So the director and producer decide to take a new approach a toss the actors into a real world war scenario with hidden guerrilla cameras around the area to get an authentic feel. Turns out the actors encounter actual drug maker vigilantes. Will they break character or figure out the other guys with guns aren't actors? Will the movie actually get produced? This is a slapstick satire on many famous war films over the decades yet it only brought me light smirks rather than hefty chortles. Choppy pacing and average gags didn't help it. Overall, it was a fairly unique slapstick movie with effort put forth with the core story yet many characters were annoying or too strange aside from Jack Black who had some crazy and funny scenes.

Cruise Is Fun, but Downey Jr Steals Every Scene

Continuing my plan to watch every Tom Cruise movie in order, I contact Tropic Thunder (2008)

Plot In A Paragraph: Through a series of freak occurrences, a group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie are forced to become the soldiers they are portraying.

The spoof trailers and ads which take up the first 10 mins set the tone for what is to follow, its crude, low brow humour, but I for one find it a very movie. An Oscar nominated Robert Downey Jr steals every scene he is in!! He is brilliant as method actor Kirk Lazarus, an actor so commuted he does not come out of character until he has done the DVD commentary, and thinks nothing of having skin augmentation for a role!! Ben Stiller (allegedly loosely basing his character on Sly Stallone) is fun, normally I find most of his characters the same, but I like him here. Jack Black is perfectly cast and gets some great one liners.

Then on to Tom Cruise, who after a very public kicking from all quarters, he reminds everyone why they like him, with an over the top, energetic and totally off the wall performance that was rightly nominated for a Golden Globe (his last nomination to date) I'm still waiting for the Les Grossman solo movie.

Tropic Thunder grossed $110 million at the domestic box office to end 2008 the 25th highest grossing movie of the year.
