Only God Forgives

Nicolas Winding Refn made one of my favorite films and that's Drive. Then he made this. Does he have an eye for great cinematography, music and talent, yes. But your story still has to be good and this one fell a little flat. Refn brings us a visual, eye candy experience that I won't forget. This man knows colors and how to make people feel a certain way because of color. The story is lacking and feels like it is missing that extra push to make it better. The acting is fantastic as Ryan Gosling delivers yet another great performance. Kristen Scott Thomas does well as his mom and brings a different take on how a mother is loving towards their children. The cinematography is beautiful and light to near perfection creating the mood for this film. The film is edited well and keeps you glued to it for it visual aspect. This is a good movie. Is it better than drive? No, but it's close. I think what is lacking here is story and if you don't have a great story it will fault any movie. However it is still a visual treat. 7/10
