The Undercover Blues
By Nikhita Bhatia
Almost everybody in this world loves to watch movies. Be it horror, romance, comedy, thriller, action, or drama, we all watch movie because it is a very good way to pastime. When most people watch movies, they only look for fun. People do not use what they see in movies to affect their lives unless you are a person like me who cannot watch horror movies at all because I get scared after I watch the movie. The movie Undercover Blues was filled with fun but if you look at the movie more closely it is a pretty harsh movie with way too much violence.
Personally, I enjoyed the movie very much before I had to start thinking about the theme of the movie which is gratuitous violence. Gratuitous violence means violence that is unnecessary. After having thought about the theme, I realize that this movie is very unreal. Seriously, how can a man with a baby, single-handedly, get rid of two young men that happen to have a knife too? It’s all just too unreal.
Some movies like cartoons and super power movies are totally unreal. This movie is also unreal in its own way. I felt that the couple and the baby’s lives were way too perfect. I don’t agree with the violence part but I have to say that I enjoyed the movie very much.
I feel that the movie’s theme really goes well with the movie. The violence in the move was pretty much not needed. But because of the not needed characters like Muerte, the movie was good. If there was no Muerte in the film, the movie would have not been as good as it is now.
Gratuitous violence is something that is shown in cartoons every time-the creatures get blown up and then the next scene they are perfectly fine. I feel that this movie has portrayed the theme very well with the use of some funny characters. I know that I will remember this film because the way that the movie was made, I think I’ll be forced to remember it!
