21 Savage: From Robbin’ to Role Model is a groundbreaking comedy directed by Greg Garcia and starring Nicholas Cage. Before you start reading, I will warn you right now that this review might get rather lengthy. If you want me to tell you about the plot then I will just spoil it for you right now. If you want to skip to the end, then you can stop reading here. Otherwise, I’ll give you the short version.
A 21st birthday is a memorable event for anyone and everyone. The 21st birthday is the best day to get high with friends and family, so the movie 21 Savage is about that perfectly. 21 Savage stars Nicholas Cage as Michael “MD” Demetri Invictus, a young man from Brooklyn who is very good at boxing. He was fired from his last job when his boss thinks he’s not doing well in his job. So he goes back to his cousin’s house, where his parents live to look for a way to make some extra money.
21 Savage: From Robbin’ to Role Model is a movie that will make you laugh and cry. The concept is really funny, the acting is great and the music is just fun to listen to. You’ll also love the special effects, the car chase and the explosions.
When I heard the name of 21 Savage, I thought it was going to be another one of those terrible comedies that cost too much to see. But no, 21 Savage is a fun watch that’s educational as well. Even the DVD copy has been improved since the movie came out. Don’t worry though, you won’t miss out on any action because the movie is just as good as it was on the big screen.
When I saw the trailers for 21 Savage: From Robbin’ to Role Model I actually had one of those momentous moments where I was thinking “why didn’t I see this movie when I was looking forward to watching 21 Savage”? 21 Savage is an animated film that tells the story of 21 Savage, who is an escaped slave who becomes an escaped slave and becomes a bounty hunter. The whole movie is just crazy to watch. The car chase scene alone has me laughing so hard. This is one of the few films where you have the time for all the car chases.
21 Savage is directed by none other than Quentin Tarantino, who is responsible for many of the best movies of recent years including Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction. He turns in another fantastic film here that I have yet to find a dull moment. One of the things that make a movie a hit is how choreographed the action scenes are. 21 Savage has some great set pieces and they flow together perfectly to make a movie that everyone can relate to and enjoy.
As far as the story itself, it’s rather short but contains a lot of twists and turns that keep the movie moving along at a fast pace. We get introduced to 21 Savage quickly and then have to sit back and take it easy. While we are doing that, we see some of the other main players in this crazy story as well. There are other bounty hunters alongside 21 Savage, as well as some other lesser known people, and all play important roles in the events of the movie. It’s a fast paced movie that flows right in and doesn’t slow down until the very end.
If you are someone who likes action and crime fiction, this movie is definitely a must see. It doesn’t contain any real soap opera drama or complications, but instead it’s pure entertainment. It’s funny, entertaining, and even educational at times. I give this movie a thumbs up, because while it may not be the greatest movie of 2009, it’s still a great one. If you haven’t seen 21 Savage, then go out and pick it up today.
