“The Words” – Review by Anthony Hurtado

The Words Review
by Anthony Hurtado
The Words is probably the only new film released this weekend in theaters to go and watch
but that is not saying much. Even though this movie is probably going to lead at the box office, it
doesn’t mean it’s going to be any good.
The film has an amazing cast to go along with the movie, including Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Jeremy Irons,
Olivia Wilde, and Dennis Quaid. However, a great cast doesn’t guarantee a great film, as proven in previous films.
The film drags on A LOT. The flow of the movie felt stale and sort of a been there done that. I feel
as this film is a combination of 2 other very great and successful films, those being Inception and
The Social Network. Taking the plot point The Social Network about one man stealing another
man’s idea and publishing off as his own. The plot point they rip straight from Inception is later
revealed in the later half of the film but I don’t feel like spoiling it for people who are wanting
to watch this latest films.
What really upset me was that the story was gripping and interesting up until a point where I found
plot holes, cliches, and somewhat of a lazy job of making the film. However the acting is
astonishing to say the least. Including Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Irons. Both actors were fantastic
while on the the screen.
The movie was an overall disappointment. After getting invested in the characters and the story, I
felt something, but in the end the story made it impossible for me to like this movie more than
I could have liked it.
I give The Words 2 out of 5 stars.
