Wonder Wheel - Review

When you look at the poster, you might get yourself ready for an artsy movie. Then you hear the name Woody Allen, and then you think artsy fartsy. This would be the way to describe this movie. The movie tries to give each character on screen their own monolog. So when Jim Belushi is arguing with his wife, Kate Winslet, he makes a ten minute monolog on why it's all her fault. Then, Kate Winslet gets her ten minutes to rebuttal.

Justin Timberlake was a nice addition to the movie, but he didn't help much. With his character only consumed with himself, and not adding any real emotion other than loving every woman on screen, this turned into a tv soap fast. Mixing love triangles with cat fights and more.

The film is very colorful though. If you're looking for a movie that will set you in the mood with color, this might be it. It is very vibrant, bright, and will catch your eye.

The movie itself is a long, slow moving, train that you watch as it looks like it will be derailed, but then at the last minute it switches tracks and nothing special happens. If I were you, I would wait and see this movie when you're in your sixties, when you might appreciate this film more.

Rating: 3 out of 5
