I actually like this movie quite a bit. Unfortunately, the ending and the conclusion left too much bad taste for me to remember that nice feeling. They rushed the story from the middle part until the end and it doesn’t even make any sense. Yeah, they went to Ecuador, and yeah, as expected they got caught for real, then BAAM suddenly happily ever after.
The heck? Are you kidding me?
Not to mention, the character development for Finch just made him worse for me. He was okay before, I could sympathize with him even when what he did was only whining about his no good wife and their marriage problem. But after the character development, he became so stupid (reckless and careless) and annoying. And since Frank felt guilty about what he did in of his ignorance, he became too meek to control his partner’s idiotic behavior.
I feel like they switched the roles. Frank, at first, was really annoying. He was an arrogant jerk, who couldn’t care less about others. But then, he grew. He realized his wrong-doing and became well, not so arrogant.
Meanwhile Finch, at first, was your average nice guy. And they changed him. He became disagreeable after he realized his wife really didn’t love him. AND HE DID SOMETHING STUPID OVER AND OVER AGAIN AFTER THAT.
Finally, they got home; somehow thanks to Finch (Frank was like secondary-not-really-important character in this part). But I won’t forget that he was the one who was being too careless in the first place and (one of) the reason they got trapped. And I’m not sure if what he did was brave or not. It was too reckless. They were lucky they could get out of there unharmed.
…or maybe I should say it was a miracle.
I wonder which news I should take as truth and which were not. Internet really doesn’t help. With how much useless information we have to read every day, it sometimes doesn’t even matter whether they are true or false.
