Many a times the makers of a film be it comedy or an action movie make the film to reach out to a wide audience but sometimes the target is a specific group of people in the audience as well. There have been many Hollywood movies based on these two genres that have been successful in the past while there have been others as well which have totally flopped. Action comedies provide entertainment to a larger group though this does not mean that the movie will necessarily be a success since there are other ingredients for a successful movie.
Directed by Jorma Taccone and written by Jorma Taccone, Will Forte and John Solomon the movie Macgruber is an American action comedy film which seemed like a hit before it was released. The movie is based on the NBC television series Saturday Night Live sketch Macgruber and it released on May 21, 2010. The movie has been edited by Jamie Gross while Rogue pictures have done the distribution of the film. It should be noted that the TV series was also created by Jorma Taccone.
The movie moves around Macgruber who is a brave heart, supported a number of ranks and has a number of medals under his name. The special operator has fought crime with almost empty hands ever since his fiance was killed 10 years ago and has lived his life that way. Dieter Von Cunth, his enemy has stolen a nuclear warhead and the country requires his service to solve the situation the country is facing. Through his unorthodox methods he tries to solve the problem by assembling a team of Lt. Dixon Piper and Vicki St. Elmo who are experts in their fields.
The title role of Macgruber has been played by Will Forte while his sworn enemy Dieter Von Cunth has been played by Val Kilmer. The team of Macgruber has Ryan Phillippe playing the role of Lt. Dixon Piper and Kristen Wiig playing the role of Vicki St. Elmo. The movie also has Power Boothe and Maya Rudolph in significant roles while various WWE wrestlers like Kane, Mark Henry, The Big Show, The Great Khali, M.V.P and Chris Jericho have also played small cameos.
The treatment that has been given to the story and the way Forte has acted in the movie make the movie likeable and interesting even though the storyline of the movie is predictable and so are the dialogues which do not have anything new to offer. The former mentioned factors are enough to do the trick.
The presence of some nude scenes in the movie would make you feel embarrassed instead of making you laugh. An over attempt has been done to get the humor in and the movie has lacked at those places is what one feels after seeing the movie. The way the script has been treated is raw and is very different from the manner in which such scripts have been treated in the past.
The success or the failure of the movie at the box office should not matter much because it is a kind of an experiment. If you want to watch a fresh take on comedy, this movie should not be missed.
