'Radioactive' will open exclusively on Amazon Prime on July 24th, 2020.
This movie is about a biopic of the woman, Marie Curie, who found the element radioactivity, so of course I want into this movie thinking is was going to be slow, but it does more than just be slow. This movie is like a test, if you don't pay close enough attention, you will get lost, and not know what is going on.
The movie likes to flash back and forth in time. While at first this was an awesome feature to watch, it slowly lost its effect later on. You see as Curie was creating and finding out different things about radioactivity, they would jump in time and show the effects that this causes in the future. So if you are not paying close attention, you may miss what time period you are in and not understand what is going on.
The movie features Rosamund Pike as Marie Curie, the woman who discovered of radioactivity. While Pike normally delivers an awesome perforce, this movie felt like it was lacking something. It seemed like she just didn't fit this character well. I think this character wasn't exciting for her to get into the vibe.
The main issue is the pacing of the movie. While at times there is something exciting about to happen, the lack of dialogue and reaction from the characters doesn't land the feeling you should have. While at times they could have moved things a little quicker, there were times that needed to go slower so it could build the tension.
This is a perfect movie to be on Amazon Prime. If you already hav the service this is good to watch on a Friday night with a big bowl of popcorn. Just don't sit in the most comfortable seat in your house. You may just fall asleep.
Rating: 2 out of 5
