Movie Review: The Soloist

I had high hopes for this movie because I love Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr. After seeing it, I had several thoughts:
  • The acting is fabulous - Foxx & Downey Jr were exactly as good as I expected them to be
  • Several parts of it really blew me away with the artistry and beauty of it
  • It was really cool that it was a true story - I didn't know that before seeing it
but...

somehow all of that pieces together into something that I just wasn't really crazy about. So I'd give parts of it a great review, but the movie as a whole would maybe get a C rating. Not great. Definitely very disappointing.

i've heard the Soloist does a great job raising awareness about those who are homeless who might also happen to be mentally unstable

It does definitely do that too. That was another thing I really liked. I'm still trying to figure out why I didn't really like it overall. It's the strangest thing because I fully expected to be all about it. I think I'm going to read the book. That may make a difference. But I'm not saying it was bad, just that it wasn't great for me.
