It's a pretty solid sci Fi thriller. It lacks the intellect and beauty of Sunshine but the solid cast and slow burn kept me interested and curious enough until the end, which did not leave me unsatisfied.
100th new movie of 2020!
Like a game of Oregon trail with the pace set to grueling, Whiplash packs more adrenaline than a summer action blockbuster.
Miles Teller and JK Simmons drum out an unbelievable two hour duet, playing beautifully off each other without missing a fucking beat. This film often draws comparisons to Black Swan, which is understandable, but I NEVER would have thought Whiplash would be the more intense of the two.
The characters are perfectly unlikable, self-centered, and vain, which all add up to some top notch, hard hitting, sweat drenched, blood soaked drama.
