The Interview

Their trip to North Korea just went south.


The Interview
Sony's 'problematic' movie did not seem to attract any hostility here, unlike in the USA where North Korea was offically upset. When a popular TV journalist and his producer discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of their show, they manage to land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As they prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un. Expect plenty of below-the-belt humour.

113 minutes.

Tomatometer quote iconUnfortunately overshadowed by controversy (and under-screened as a result), The Interview's screenplay offers middling laughs bolstered by its two likable leads.
