Finch (2021)


“Moving at night presents that which is not predictable. People.” – Finch

Number of Times Seen – 1 (5 Nov 2021)

Brief Synopsis – In a future dystopian society, a loner befriends a dog and a robot as they set off on a journey across the country together.

My Take on it – Tom Hanks has proven time and again how great an actor he can be.

A bit over 20 years ago, he made Cast Away (2000) where he essential spent half of the movie on a desert island with just a volleyball to talk to.

In this film, he once again shows his ability to carry a story almost solely by himself as hos two companions on his journey through a dangerous apocalyptic world are a dog and a robot.

His conversations with the robot are great because he tries to teach him all about life and how the world works which in turn shows the viewer the same.

The film paints a bleak future while also showing that even in moments of despair there should be optimism and the will to survive.

The problem with this film is that it doesn’t really offer much of anything unique or new to the ‘journey’ kind of film even within an apocalyptic world which obviously takes a lot away from this story even if Hanks is stellar as usual.

In addition to Hanks, Caleb Landry does a nice job as the voice of the robot.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The music used in the Official Trailer is a variation of Hans Zimmer’s score for True Romance (1993), specifically the track “You’re So Cool”. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
