Movie Review: Golden Slumber
One word: It’s a REAL masterpiece! It’s like the movies that I see in Screen Red!
Masato Sakai again, never fails to amaze the audience in this thriller-suspense, filled with comedy (oh, what do you expect with this guy? He’s like the Japanese version of Johnny Depp and Binoe!)! One thing that I really like about “Golden Slumber” is how he dealt with the conspiracy that framed him as the “perpetrator” of the Prime Minister’s assassination. It was life between the accused and the accuser–which are the heavy security who will do everything to capture Aoyagi Masaharu (Sakai’s character).
Well, what? I cannot say that this movie should be a 10/10. The ending is SOOOOOO bitin that Aoyagi ended up being the impostor himself. Therefore, I could either say that the rating ranges from 9.5-10/10 because of the ending. I really did not like the ending at all, and it’s much more disappointing than a typical deus ex machina–only a longer version.
The movie BTW, is derived from “Golden Slumbers,” by the Beatles. Well, not a fan of the song, though. I only liked the scenes where Masato sang in English (at last! HAHA)–and more LHD vehicles on the scene.
Overall, this is recommended to watch if you’re learning more Japanese phrases and also, if you’re into thriller movies. Nothing is really boring with Masato-chan!
