“Adopt a Highway” is a melancholic and endearing film that will touch a sensitive nerve with many viewers.
Blaze tells the true story of a musician, Blaze Foley, in the prime years of his life as he meets his love and struggles to maintain his identity within the confines of a pervasive industry he is increasingly encouraged to pursue.
This film has some good actors and really that’s what the film has going for it. It has genre God Rutger Hauer for goodness sake.
Ethan Hawke has a very diverse career he does big Hollywood films, mostly as a supporting actor, he does indies and he has gotten into doing genre and I must say he’s almost always so good good his style never changes no matter what the material is he doesn’t act “down” in genre films.
One of my many complaints about films is that the filmmakers and or studios dumb down stories they shot for the lowest common denominator now I can safely say Predestination is not one of those movies, this film is not only very smart but has somethings on it’s mind.
First off this is John Wick as a western, say what you want, you can say this was written first, I don’t think it was, but this is John Wick through and through, a man trying to put his past behind him, a bunch of thugs kill his dog and leave him and then we also have the main thug is the son of a bigger more wise thug.
