Burn After Reading Review

This is a hilariously smart movie about intertwining stupidity. Not many comedies get better than this. What you have here is a comedic complex crime story with many different characters (played expertly by every actor) that leads to hilarious conclusions. What I like about Burn After Reading is there really isn’t a main character, there’s just a lot of different, yet equally fun characters reacting to the events and characters around them. The acting was top-notch and fun, especially by John Malkovich and Brad Pitt, I smiled with each of their lines. Burn After Reading wasn’t epic, and it didn’t have much point or reason, but it was incredibly entertaining and worth every penny. Burn After Reading wasn’t No Country for Old Men and it didn’t amount to much in the end, but that’s one of the key points I received from this film. A movie doesn’t have to amount to much to have a good story, and Burn After Reading does hilariously tell a great story.
