Comedy (Dark) - Go is a fast-paced, multi-plot comic thriller fashioned in a similar
narrative and film-making style as Pulp Fiction. Viewers who enjoyed
that previous film will find this one humorous and exciting on its own merits,
not simply a mediocre rip-off of Quentin Tarantino. The film is heavy on
sex, drugs and violence, so viewers will delicate sensibilities should not
apply. The characterizations are a bit thin, but the action is so frenetic
and inventive that many viewers -- particularly younger viewers -- will be
too entertained to care much.
PROFANITY: Very strong and very frequent SEX/NUDITY: Nudity and one explicity sexual situation VIOLENCE: One assault, some gunplay DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol consumption and multiple instances of drug use ACTION: Car chase, foot chase COMEDY: Absurdist situations, humorous dialogue
In this cinematic era where we can't help but compare a film like Go
to the work of Quentin Tarantino, it's easy to miss why so much of Go
works. Like Pulp Fiction, it's a multi-story narrative full of
guns, drugs and shady characters, but it's more than just a stylistic
rip-off. Go understands that a film can enthrall an audience
with the thrill of being surprised, with its sheer momentum, with a
willingness to stray from the most obvious path just to keep us entertained.
It may not be a resonant work or one with much of a message, but it's
the kind of joyride that makes one pleased to compare to Tarantino.
