Movies: The Bucket List - Review

Jack Nicholson is a great actor. Morgan Freeman is too. This movie, is more of an artistic poem of a movie then the drama I was expecting. I'm not saying it was bad, there were just things that were glaringly distracting.

This story is about two complete strangers that would never have met if it weren't for their impending death by cancer.

I will keep this short since I do tend to over-write. The graphics are terrible. The drama is predictable but the camaraderie is enjoyable enough for you to overlook those faults. Think of it like a classic Hollywood film where the actors were always in front of a backdrop in a studio and you won't be disappointed.

The characters are likable and the conclusion is satisfying. Worth a rental with your significant other.

Scary stars you've got there.

I enjoyed watching this movie. I didn't notice the terrible effects. Actually, I thought they were really there.
Thanks for taking the time to review it.
