The theme of revenge remains one of the key many thrillers and horror films, where a Central character begins to stalk the other characters, to interfere in their lives or even to take away as turns out the the sins committed in the past. But this topic is so tired of eating in modern cinema that entrance not what a scare, it to sell the film hardly succeed. However, it didn't stop Tate Taylor, who directed the Thriller "the MA."

synopsis One group of students asks a stranger black woman, sue Anne's known as "MA" to buy them alcohol, then that offers them a good time in the basement of his house. Guys unwillingly agree and take this opportunity to turn the basement MA in the place of his reckless partying. But soon the guys are starting to notice MA inexplicable oddities and doubt the benevolent intentions of the mysterious stranger.

acting Perhaps it is the only positive side of the film, though with reservations. First and foremost, I want to mention the amazing performance of Octavia Spencer in the role of MA, the eccentric "big momma", which, with one hand, decided to revive old customs, organizing crazy parties in his own house, and on the other, does not able to get rid of the pain that she has caused in the past. Perhaps this is the only really decent role in the movie because the rest of the cast, including Juliette Lewis and Duke Evans, played though alright, but nothing new show.

Directing In while watching the film will immediately notice that filmed the Director who doesn't have had experience with the genre of horror films. Although before Tate Taylor stood or to scare the viewer or to enter the in a strong emotional stress or with that, nor with another task (let's be honest) it failed. The thing that the Director, until it worked with the dramatic genre, extrapolated it to this movie. To everything else, he's considerably delayed the dynamics of the film, and the expected action takes place only in the last twenty minutes of the movie, why you not have time to capture the atmosphere. At the end, "MA" turned out to be half-horror, half-Thriller and even a half-assed drama.

Script To unfortunately, the screenplay is also not have avoided serious problems. Before watching you expect to see exciting action-Packed Thriller with elements of detective and horror films, and the result are perfectly normal, no remarkable movie. The plot of the film is reminiscent of the classic thrillers of the youth where a group of teenagers-students as usually makes a number of the rash and end up in mortal danger. In "MA" group of friends wants to have fun and asks a black stranger to buy them alcohol. That takes care and offers to use your basement for noisy get-togethers, in which she is not want to get involved. Any viewer will assume that does it MA not just that it is there some kind of plan, and that plan has not responsible for anything good. However, the problem scenario is that the viewer is not receive any answers. To still remain a mystery, the motives of the protagonist in relation to adolescents. If you take in a calculate event of the her past is presented in flashbacks, then this is a stretch for the ears and, frankly, looks corny. Also in the story annoying stupid behavior of teenagers who literally do all possible to cut with a knife, cauterized with an iron or strangled with bare hands. At the end, instead of an intriguing detective Thriller, the viewer gets sentimental drama about offended girl in a woman's body, decided to take revenge on their oppressors.

Summary I can't describe MA as a boring uninteresting movie. Just to unfortunately, this film turned out to be too simple and moreoriginal. All plot twists, all directorial techniques, all this manner of storytelling — all viewer saw instead of the expected action-Packed Thriller it waits for a disposable spectacle. The only thing that saves the film — this Octavia Spencer, and other than a stretch.

Write at once, my opinion, watch the film to cost, but only the fans of this wonderful actress under the name Octavia Spencer.

Write pretty messy and brief. The main" villain", in the face of many familiar Actresses as many will see the truth, pull the plot, as most things, in the film was, but feeling badly squeezed orange, pursues for all viewing.

Since the beginning of the movie, I waited for the creators reveal the atmosphere in the film, because the trailer was intriguing haven't set a little hope, so the view obviously for me, began with high expectations that K not met.

There were a few things I think awkward in this picture, but it is absolutely not understand the moments that should have alerted and make you think of people, not affect actions specific views of the group of friends. Further, according to the course of the film, in scenarios considered to remove the "curtains" c strange scene inserts, but it turned out awkwardly, showing that characters in the film intelligence is not presented, even given the fact that this group of teenagers. At the time of viewing, just be clear about what was going on (can't tell without shroud, because there are spoilers).

For me the film is not held in its genre field and lying near her idea, the atmosphere is lacking, interest is rapidly lost, the film holds the viewer in some suspense, but not enough significant "raisins" to display the movie on a higher level.

The picture is definitely not worst not the most progressive in the genre, but if you hooked to the trailer or you just want to have a look at the game Octavia Spencer, then you should definitely watch the movie.

Having started his career with a pretty remarkable, but not outstanding Comedy "Beautiful freaks", directed by Tate Taylor could be to continue in a given direction, refusing at from risk creative experimentation. And the less ambitions Tate was much more extensive from which he felt it necessary to look much further other colleagues in the Comedy, holding a difficult American standards topics black workers who had to tell at your lifetime a lot complicated, but sometimes tragic episodes. At first it seemed that the candidate completely inexperienced Tate not is best for that he took  a"Servant", and the at least the Director managed to convince the producers in that it to cope with the tasks, and then immediately began to the shooting process, issuing one of the most notable films of the decade. Intriguing, dramatic, in a measure ironic and instantly memorable story without problems found path to the hearts of their audiences, and Octavia Spencer even got in its role fully deserved "Oscar". He also Tate Taylor proved that the Director of a modest Comedy is quite capable on a far more serious revelation and gained fame as one of the most promising filmmakers of our time. And once Taylor was able in one moment to change the direction of his career from Comedy to drama, which is nominated on"Oscar", so he could luck in other areas of the genre, because he always wanted to test yourself in the Thriller where long years of rule of the brilliant David Fincher. However this time good luck bypassed Taylor's side, twice in a row.

After the awards ceremony of the Academy awards almost unlimited credit, Tate Taylor started the film adaptation of the novel "the Girl in the train", written by writer, known for  the"Disappeared", which in his time was moved to the big screen mentioned by David Fincher. But though the book had a special dramatic intrigue and skillfully developed the characters of his most complex characters, Taylor is not failed to take advantage of the strengths of the original, removing a rather dull and predictable spectacle, in which the greatest value was a game Emily blunt. The still, "the Girl in the train" was not an absolute failure, and many viewers decided that Director has fallen, and only stumbled, and him in that would any had to give one chance to be proved, clearing an Thriller of your dreams. The appears to be exactly believed the famous producer Jason Blum, when he proposed Taylor to put the tape under the name "MA", the script to which was written by Scotty Landis, not the most eminent, but quite promising author. And the Director is just not reject such a tempting offer, bringing along with a platform Octavia Spencer, with no way so successfully worked in  the help. But with all the ambition and desire to prove himself in a difficult genre with the best hand, Tate Taylor took openly the controversial movie, which is not go comparison what he was able to make with complex drama of life and even the slight, unassuming Comedy.

Itself the plot of the film revolves around a high school girl Maggie (Diane silvers), which have to move together with her mother Erica (Juliette Lewis) in the town of his childhood the last which it not often remembered, but difficult life circumstances force the heroine to take a bold decision. And like at first all were quite good, Maggie even made some new friends, Eric has got a job that allows more or less support a family. The only problem is that in a small town a young girl and her company is very difficult to take yourself to something interesting, and because they have to seek out for himself the dubious entertainment like the purchase of alcohol. And care what. they also not adults, because their neighbor is my dear sue Anne (Spencer), ready in any moment to help bored young people. Even more, sue Anne, which the Maggie-mates dubbed simply as "MA" not off to the guys arranged the party at her home. From the inviolable rules of "MA" highlights only one thing: no way never guests are not have to look into her personal room, while in other respects they have the right to do whatever you wish. Of course, to abandon the gift of fate our heroes are not able, however, interest in fact that is the room "MA" sooner or later outweigh, and then begin the madness that guys could dream even in the nightmare. And its the center is a faded image dobracki "MA", gradually turning into a crazy villain.

Title the idea of the film in fact is of interest, because this story could happen in reality she nobody not really insured. The Director, however, it was necessary to strengthen the basis of a good story with suspense and relative the timing intriguing clues to the true motives of sue Anne, who would have a long time remain for us a mystery. But instead, Tate Taylor pretty quickly reveals we all the essence in such a situation is completely uninteresting motives, "MA", after all, we understand, from someone should expect the unexpected blow. Of course, Octavia Spencer goes out all the forces trying to bring in linear script a fair share of your own dramatic flair and sometimes even confuses the narrative, making it deeper. But in the context of the whole film in General, you must admit that her efforts are frankly not enough to make the story much more dynamic and taking out at least some intrigue. In turn, Tate Taylor if he knows that he wants to show and the only thing he turned out to be the best, so it is the freedom to be creative Octavia Spencer. Here for it Director still deserves praise, because he could hack to death on the root is the only thing that it works fine. But not detract from the frankly painful crawling of time, which is almost up to the climax is not shows us nothing.

A large part of the timekeeping the audience has to observe the sketchy parties of friends who frankly don't know what to do. Guys wandering aimlessly through the house, drink alcohol, and speak some completely dismissed the topic. Find something interesting not possible if no periodic appearance of the heroine Octavia Spencer, the spectacle would have been to the end sad. Apparently, Tate Taylor is trying to spur our interest climax, because the scene of booze and other entertainment at the idea was as you should introduce us with guys, but in fact, nothing of the that the Director out. Further simple scenario sketches the characters of Maggie and friend left, and that means Taylor has scattered precious screen time wasted, having the most serious crime, because there is nothing worse than a boring Thriller, killing a great idea.
