Good Time

Good Time ★★★★½

So I guess the obvious cliche question is 'Did I have a Good Time?'

Well let's see. A story basically told over a 24 hour period about a deadbeat and his mentally handicapped brothers plan to rob a bank goes wrong, and with his brother being caught, this deadbeat needs to find ways to come up with the bail money as quick as possible.

The outright shining star here is Robert Pattinson. The guy owns this movie. He crushes it. And yes, his character is a down right scumbag, does some cringy and awful things along the way here, and has no real redeeming qualities (except for the love of his brother). But Pattinson plays it so well, you want to be along for the ride.

The mix of the gritty, dank New York at night mixed with the Neon flashes and colours and the sci-fi techno score you would associate with Drive makes this a unique looking film, and keeps your attention with ease. The conclusion to this film is also very satisfying.

Some downsides is the film screeches to a halt for a small portion in the middle, but that's about it. Awesome.

So the question is 'Did I have a Good Time?'

No. I had a Great Time.
