this is a perfect film to watch it wherever,

*** *
It is a great film wich has provoked interest because of
the special effects as much as for the great acting. In this film
nobody likes Hancock, although he is a hero, so a public re-
lations adviser wants to make everyone change their rude,
stinky and drunk impression they have of him, turning him into
the hero everybody wants.

Hancock is a comedy action science-fiction film which

included big-budget chases, a light-hearted plot, portraying
real-life situations with impossible quests, all designed for
pure audience escapism.

With a P.G. rating and both comedy and

action it is the perfect film for people who
love laughing.

Directed by Peter Berg

Starring: Will Smith and Charlize Theron.
Length: 92 min.
Rating: everybody
It is available on DVD and Blue Ray.

The Dark Night

The film has provoked a great deal of interest as much because of the excitement of the story
as for the catastrophic death of the actor Heath Ledger. The story is based on the frustration of
the Mafia because they can not move their money as they would like because of Batman and be-
cause of Harvey Dent the districts prosecution. This frustration makes the Mafia employ a very
strange assassin that even they don’t understand.

The Dark Knight is an action-drama that it will show you the craziness of an assassin, the exas-
peration of missing some one you love and the serenity and obligation of doing the correct
thing. There is no possible drawback in my opinion. I think we are talking about a masterpiece.

Starring: Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Aaron Eckhart

****Che is a two-part film
which has pro voked interest in
the audience as much because it
is based on the real life of a very
famous person, Che Guevara, as for the film
itself. The film is based on the life of an im-
portant revolutionary man who changed a lot
of peoples’ lives. He was successful because
of his knowledge in medicine and other sub-
jects as much as because of his braveness.
The film is a plot-driven drama in which
you can appreciate the personal thoughts of
the Che and see his own character develop-
ment. The great actor’s performance (Benicio
del Toro) is one of the most important things, as
he won a Goya for it.
This is a great film for people that want
to know about how revolution was in some
countries of South-America.
