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