Just Mercy is a movie by Darren Aronofsky. It's an entirely different type of movie to his other movies. You might have heard of this movie, it's been making the rounds of the Internet for quite some time now, and I'd like to discuss what makes it so special, and why you might want to give it a chance.
The story is centered around two sides of the coin, that is, our two angels, Michael and Gabriel, as they try to balance between good and evil. This particular movie is a tale of one angel falling for another, as this is what happens when humans fall in love with Angels. We all want what we can't have, so these two angels decide to take a chance on each other. This is the story of Just Mercy.
The movie is suspenseful, as each of the characters have something that will change the outcome of the story. In this case, the two Angelic couples decide to try and save humanity from certain destruction by stopping a nuclear war. However, this has a major downside to it, as this means there will be a worldwide explosion and a hundred million dead people, and then, everything starts again. So, who do the two angels go after? Of course, this all happens before our eyes in Just Mercy.
Just as it seems every movie these days, the main character is a normal everyday person that goes through and situation that is not typical. I suppose there are some movies where that is the only way to tell the story, but in this movie, this is not the case. This is a love story. We have our two angels, a normal middle class family, and a war is going on in the past for vengeance.
The acting in this movie is superb. It is so real that it makes you believe in the characters. There is a scene in the movie where Michael and Gabriel visit a pregnant woman who is about to give birth to their child. In the beginning of the movie they have a strange exchange in which Gabriel tells Michael that she needs to try and calm down, since it's going to be a long day, but we can't see what he actually says. It would have been nice if we could have seen it.
Overall, Just Mercy is a very entertaining movie, it doesn't necessarily need to be viewed in order, and it is a solid film. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, as you see the twists and turns the story takes. It's very well written and the acting is top notch. If you like the Lord of the Rings, watch this movie!
Of course, the director of this movie is Darren Aronofsky, the same man behind Pi and Requiem for a Dream. Aronofsky wrote the screenplay, along with screenwriter William Monahan. It was only recently released into theaters, but it is already a huge hit. Therefore, if you've never seen it, you really should give it a chance.
The Movie will be in theaters for at least another four or five years, so I would highly recommend getting your copy today and watching this for the first time when the new installments come out. If you enjoy this type of movie, I would highly recommend this.
