The Fan

With all the heat that we are having here in Cyprus, anything that sounds like a chill out sounds like a really good thing. I know that “The Fan” could have several meanings but I picked it up anyway.

My rating: 6.0 ******

This is a good movie, but it is one of many. It’s done in good quality, but nothing is special about it. It has a cliche beginning and a very predictable ending. Dialogues, character development, acting – everything is good on the average.

The only thing that stands out is the soundtrack. Outstanding mix of Nine Inch Nails and Rolling Stones with some hispanic bits is even available on CD from Amazon.

Recommendation: whatch this film if your movie queue is filled with average or below average crap. You’ll have a good time.
