Movie Review: Mr. Right (2016)

The title could be catchy, however, many could be misled. Hey, could Mr. Right be found on a rebound?? Like, the first guy you fall for just after a breakup? Hardly. Worse, this kinda scenario could even be your worst nightmare. Well, that’s how they tried to make it appear in Mr. Right, but then..


The plot. A girl falls for ‘her perfect’ guy, who’s actually an assassin.

First, we felt that Sam Rockwell was a poor choice for the character of Francis Munch, or Mr. Right. See, he was not at all scary but goofy. So, we thought that it would have been better if the assassin was imposing — though with great appeal, of course. Something like an Antonio Banderas. After all, he’ll be playing a hitman, and besides, Banderas has a ‘funny bone’ too. Yeah, action-comedy-romance!

Still as the movie progressed, well, it’s just not worth it. Even the gangsters don’t look scary but funny. Nah. Birdbrained. Guess, ‘light-hearted’ films are at a disadvantage of being pressured to really please people. Sadly, they missed the target.. Screen-Shot-2016-02-10-at-1.59.03-PM

As well as principles.

One. Francis said ‘how I feel about that guy has nothing to do with how I feel about you’. True. Then again, ‘harming’ people or more so, killing them is not what a real Mr. Right should be.

While he’s trying to kill those who hired him to kill others, wouldn’t it be better if he cooperated with the police? The movie should have at least shown some effort to partner, you know.

_V0A7083.dngSo, definitely this film is not something for kids — nor should it be a ‘reference’ to finding Mr. Right. The morals are just twisted that even Martha learned how to kill. Funny??

Somehow. If you’re deeply rooted to what is really right and wrong.

  1. 100% disagree. Not every movie made is meant to be realistic. I just saw this movie for the first time the other day and it’s now my favorite movie. Sam Rockwell did an amazing job as the lead male role. Antonio Banderas wouldn’t have done this movie any justice. Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell’s chemistry was out of this world. Sam Rockwell knocked it out of the park and was spot on with the comedic delivery. He was such a perfect fit for this character that I now have an enormous crush on him for the first time in my life. I truly don’t think this movie is meant to tell women that someone who kills people is supposed to be the actual Mr. Right (though I would take him in a heartbeat). If you take a movie that so obviously comedic as bible, you probably shouldn’t watch comedies, or any movies for that matter. Lighten up and take the movie as it was meant to be.
