The Beach review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 03/05/12
Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio) goes on a trip and meets Daffy (Robert Carlyle) who gives him a map of a beach. He encounters Françoise (Virginie Ledoyen) and her boyfriend, Étienne (Guillaume Canet). Despite the beauty of the location and cinematography, the overall execution and screenplay that bores us all to death. Pacing of the film and sappy conclusion were one of a few lowlights. Unlikable characters and poor plot development was evident. The Beach is one of those forgettable films instead of thinking of it as an entertaining adventure drama.
