Movie Review About "Pay It Forward".

689 words - 3 pages

One of the movies I chose to write about was called "Pay It Forward". The movie was based on the concept of "The Simplest Idea Can Make the Biggest Difference". This is achieved by doing good things for other people with three steps. The first is, it has to be something that really helps people. The second is it has to be something they can not do by themselves. Third is if "I" do it for them, they do it for three other people. This is supposed help others by paying a good deed forward, without expecting anything in return.The piano music that played throughout this movie seemed to exploit the concept of suffering in this movie. It was a difficult movie to get involved in at first. The movie appeared to be very uplifting until you started to realize that the people were struggling with themselves, hence the music played. The conflicts that the actors portrayed lent a very distressing tone to this movie.The actors themselves performed remarkably well in this movie.

Could he ever lead a normal life and have a family of his own to love him for who he was. I felt that Kevin Spacey's acting in this film was very real and made you believe that he became the character he was portraying.Helen Hunt does a fine job as the recovering alcoholic mom who...
