Big Eyes (2014) Review




Big Eyes was a fine movie, nothing amazing. It was an entertaining story, but I knew most of the story going in.  That’s not the movie’s fault, but I think the movie would be much more enjoyable if you had no idea what would happen going in. The tone of the movie felt wrong because of the 50’s style and the score. It felt too upbeat and Danny Elfman-y for the content of the film. The acting was pretty good, although Amy Adams often sounded flat. I also didn’t really like Amy Adams’ character, which took away from the end of the film.  I was glad it ended the way it did, but I wasn’t standing up and cheering because I wasn’t a huge fan of her character.
