Nine starring Penelope Cruz movie review
Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Judy Dench, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Penelope Cruz
I've been waiting to see "Nine" for a long time, ever since I saw the first preview. For some reason, I managed to overlook it.
Now I know why.
It's just not good. The music is mediocre. It's all very predictable and standard. There's no real "wow" factor.
The acting isn't that hot either. I honestly don't know how Penelope Cruz was nominated for an Oscar for that.
The one shining light in the whole thing was Marion Cotillard. That girl can sing!
Overall, though, the show was just bad. I had no reason to buy in to any of the characters. Daniel Day-Lewis' character was just a dork. I mean, seriously, grow up and get over yourself.
I see now why "Nine" received lackluster reviews. Normally I don't listen to the critics, but I wish I had in this case.
