The Snowman had potential with a great cast and exciting plot… but the film is just so, so bland

I WENT to this screening thinking this adaptation of a Jo Nesbo novel could only be one of two things. At worst, a faithful yet unadventurous representation of a hugely selling and entertaining crime novel. At best, a new franchise with real bite and style, with one of Hollywood’s best actors at its helm. But […] 12-10-17

Nope. Great film, not even as a Batman film but as a counter-terrorism film. If Batman was just a PI who tracked down a terrorist plot, like a Sherlock story or even a Jack Ryan story it would still work. It just happens to be a Batman story. The plot runs along at a breakneck pace, excellent performances from everyone (Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, career high performances) and that's before we even get to the leads. It's a story that says when faced with great evil, humanity will triumph and not give in to the fear of fellow men. The best iteration of Joker, no take over the world plot, he just wants chaos, so even ignoring Ledger's performance, that shows Nolan's understanding of Joker as a character. And Batman's sacrifice at the end with everything it brings, that an idea of a hero inside the law is more powerful than a hero outside the law, shows that

Bye Bye Love. Marriage, kids, divorce, and dating again are things just about all of us will experience in our lives. What's wonderful about Bye Bye Love is that it's happening to someone else and not you or me...this time. But, the film does a wonderful job of showing how three men deal with those things I mentioned, and how they rely on each other for advice, support, and encouragement. I'm not a parent, but I know it's difficult being one. Bye Bye Love also shows you how difficult it is dealing with ex-wives, young and teenage children, and the obstacles you face in finding potential lovers. The film was generally ignored upon release, but it has a great cast, simple and predictable story lines, and it made me think of what I went through and how it affected me. Something the three fathers show you is real emotion in their faces. You can really feel what they're going through because you can see it in their eyes. The film's trailer is in the link below.
Yeah, Depp's character is murdered and becomes the main plot of the film. He continues to appear in the film through flashbacks.
It was actually critically acclaimed at its release. The problem was that the film moved at a slow pace, and the plot may be confusing for some, as it had references and characters from the original Blade Runner film.
