The Majestic truely lives up to it;'s name sheer class
on 10 June 2008
Peter Appleton is a Hollywood screenwriter at the time of the "reds under the bed" period when America came down heavily on Communisim within it's boundaries....As Peter (played by a straight Jim Carey brilliantly) is getting the finger pointed at him he goes out in the car on a rainy stormy night only to crash with a subsequent loss of memory and a new life in a different town with a mistaken identity...There Peter falls in love and re-incarnates an old cinema hall aptly named The Majestic and so the story is poised for a great encounter.....I have never seen Jim Carey play such a fantastic straight role as we all associate him as the goof-ball comedian up to ludicrous tricks and mischief, here he truely shines....From Frank Darabont's Direction (The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile) this is the third film in this masterful trio that captures the period with a sense of realism and empathy.... The Majestic is just that and you will never want to miss a second once you start watching it ...a truely remarkable film from a truely gifted Director......
