31. Fabricated world

Implausible world ,meaning "a world not having the appearance of truth or credibility".

It may be a hard to digest this but this is the world in which we are all living ,everything in our day to day life is getting fabricated.Even a smile to a colleague in office serves a hypocritic purpose ,fabricated cases ,fabricated news ,fabricated truths ,the list goes on.

Some people who get caught in this web are taken for a ride and when the ride ends they are either no more or join the wagon of fabrication.

PLOT : " An innocent cop takes justice in his own hands after a fabricated case against him threatens his life & the life of the people he loves. "

The plot of the movie may sound like a regular run of the mill cop story but what made this film so appreciable are the lead actors who just lifted the scripted to an engaging thriller.

Samuel L.Jackson
& Kevin Spacey are the lead actors am talking about ,both of them had their lion's share of roles in the movie which they had executed flawlessly.

The presence of these actors in certain scenes raised the tension levels & served as the movie's backbone.Both these actors enacted the role of a hostage negotiator with their own working style.

"The Negotiator" directed by F.Gary Gary is a perfect example of excellent acting coupled with crisp direction.The director ratifies the audience with scenes that have a clear message that what happens in the movie is happening in our world today.

Supporting actors too had a major role in the movie ,they sometimes provide the comic relief needed in this intense movie which never fails to deliver when it comes to the thrills & suspense.

What clicks in this film is the treatment of the script ,Kevin Fox & James DeMonaco have provided the director with a script which is racy and at the sametime a taut intelligent thriller.

The beauty of the script lies in how the plot unflods at you in a neat & clear manner ,all the subplots too make sense when the main plot gets revealed ,kudos to the script writers for achieving this.

Samuel L.Jackson's
portrayal of an innocent husband forced to be on the wrong side of the law deserves special mention here ,his roles of a trustworthy friend ,an honest cop are also not to missed out.

Kevin Spacey
rides into the movie into the middle leg and takes over thereby starting a game of cat & mouse between him & Jackson which culminates into a justifiable & clever climax.

The way the movie is put across makes the viewer understand the functioning of our world today ,everything around is & will get fabricated.Either we have to cope in this Implausible world or get perished.

"The Negotiator" plays out the plight of certain people who try to prove their innocence in a way that is less propable to happen but at also reflects the hue & cry faced by innocent people who are framed in this FABRICATED WORLD.

  • Rating : "PG" for violence.
P.S : " The movie was originally written to star Sylvester Stallone and Kevin Spacey. Spacey was supposed to be the hostage-taker and Stallone playing opposite him. When Stallone turned down the part, Spacey decided he wanted the other part and had his original part recast. (Samuel L. Jackson got the role.) "

30. Slaves to Free people.

Slaves have existed right from the day when man stopped to hunt & started to think ,thinking which led to the term SLAVE.

We are all aware of the morals of life but still many country's leaders feign for the call to end Slavery ,Slavery was officially abolished in many parts of the world but taking a look around we are also just feigning.

Sometimes the tide of the world changes in which

" The true story of how slaves of 19the century AMERICA led by Colonel Robert Gould Shaw turned around the tide of the American Civil War & in the process earned their rightful freedom. "

This real life incident demonstrates how African-American people who were sidelined in the NEW WORLD of AMERICA stood up to claim their freedom during the AMERICAN CIVIL WAR.

I just happened to come across
Director Edward Zwick's name after watching the film Defiance ,he is a director who comes off good with his films that mostly are related to WAR genre.

The director begins by depicting the backdrop of AMERICAN CIVIL WAR continuing with the plight of AFRICAN-AMERICAN people in 19th century AMERICA with an urge to fight & earn their rightful freedom.

Casting was of top notch in the film with Denzel Washington ,Morgan Freeman & Matthew Broderick using up their meaty roles to perfection.Whatever the scene requires the actors have emoted themselves in a lively & at the same time in a subtle manner.

Matthew Broderick as Robert Gould Shaw excels in his portrayal of the commanding officer who stands by his men at all times & leading them from the front.His frequent misunderstandings with his men & that of his fellow senior officers are very clearly shot.

James Roy Horner has orchestrated a wonderful score for the film that takes the movie viewing level to a whole new experience ,the subtle emotions between the characters are also well captured.

Screenplay by Kevin Jarre is the backbone of the film ,whatever the scenes that had appeared had some meaning to it & some scenes were so uplifting & at the sametime inspiring.

Dialogues too had a major role here ,the near clear messages in each dialogue that were needed to inspire ,some nostalgic feelings & a sense of hope that they would also be free one day were etched out aptly.

The penultimate scenes were some the best scenes i had ever seen in a war film ,if you hadn't seen the movie then you would have definitely missed out one of cinema's most uplifting moments.

In everyday life there are certain sets of people who are grouped in a category to be used up accordingly ,but there comes a time when these people stand up together to confront situations which people who call themselves SUPERIOR RACE cannot confront.

GLORY is one such film of that genre which portrays the turning point of the AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ,If had to pick out one of Director Edward Zwick's best works then this film would be my pick.

  • Rating : "PG" for intense battle scenes.
P.S : " Matthew Broderick is believed to be a distant relative of Robert Gould Shaw, the character he plays. "
