Chris Columbus — a great Director, but as the writer of responsible minimum  Gremlins — surprising that "the Goonies" bad in the first place scenario.

Economically disadvantaged district are waiting for resettlement and demolition to make way for Golf club. Children who are not want to move and to leave each friend accidentally find a map of pirate treasure and to find them — because gold doubloons of their parents will get rid of debt can not sell home construction companies...

Sounds good, right? A typical adventure film for children original, but nothing terrible. And now let's talk about the characters...

There is a dreamy, lyrical boy-asthmatic, comic awkward fat boy, the Asian boy from weird inventions, Corey Feldman (and here to explain it is not needed), sport older brother is asthmatic, and his love interest — empty-headed cheerleader, her friend in glasses, old-gangsters, her two sons and the third son — huge, ugly moron. All this — list only those characters that on the screen constantly. Easy to see that too many of them. And the film suffers from all the problems associated with such overcrowding. No one of these characters really do not disclose, timing unnecessarily stretched, T. J. everyone should be given a little screen time, there are no meaningful and bright dialogue, so K. talking to too many people at once...

And here importantly, remember after watching "the Goonies" — PR. Because the normal dialogue is impossible, it's just yelling, lots of yelling, always and for any reason yell. It at the same time painful for the ears are bored to death. Boys talk, while yelling at each other, shouting at the bandits, screaming, stumbled on the skeleton, with loud cries and only knows how to Express his feelings is a huge moron... "Oh! Dead! Have! Ship! S!" — something like and the sound of "Boobies" all two hours.

All this would be explained, whether the film is aimed at preschool medsestroy audience (still it would be a low class, as speak with such cases are known in the Internet critic "shaking keys in front of baby face," but it would even if appropriate). However, a movie where a baby falls frozen corpse, where there are jokes about heroin and about "mom's favorite part of the" statue of David, where 19 times. to pronounce the word shit is not can be a child, he barely fits in its a PG/12+.

Actors have nothing neither to praise nor to blame, because how to evaluate the PR I know. On the second hour we show bright disney attraction... sorry, pirate Galleon, which, according to the idea is the main visual lure "the Goonies" — admittedly, quite bright and spectacular scenery. Still here is overly complicated there are a lot of "Rube Goldberg machines", which are so the likes of Columbus and as a screenwriter and as a Director, but my look, here they are not were included in action organically as it was "home Alone".

In the end the film with a good budget and not weak crew came out surprisingly mediocre. "The Goonies" — not the worst film that I saw, but it not surprising pleasure.

Every generation has its own movies that are not being masterpieces, Yes, even great films in the accepted terms of the word, will forever remain in memory, their review is always causes a storm of positive emotions. For those never seen "the Goonies" in my childhood, somewhere in the late eighties early nineties, it is the name of a little that says. Those who saw the movie twenty years ago probably remember him all life. Let it not a lot of a different League than the more famous paintings of the time "Indiana Jones" and"Back to the future", but the movie, Richard Donner, even now captures the unsuspecting viewer and throws it in an amazing adventure.

"Boobies" printed in memory for a number of reasons. First, it is the spirit of adventure that permeated almost every frame of the film. It to what extent, the same "Indiana Jones", but without the Nazis, action time and characters, who are about twelve or thirteen years. Secondly, the picture offers a constellation of memorable characters, among which is easy to recognize his friends as they were childhood. That even more amazing the older and younger brothers naturally help each other in difficult situations, and not hate each other as made in most youth films.

Thirdly, the movie is fun to watch many years later. even because you can trace the career of each of the actors who played major and minor roles. Someone from they took a lot of time before they began all over the world (Josh Brolin, Sean Austin). Someone could pursue a film career (Jonathan Ke Quan, Jeff Cohen). Someone was just fooling around on the set (Robert Davi, Joe Pantoliano), not knowing that a few years later their images will be in a joke to call parodies of numerous Badmaev played later. Steven Spielberg then forged blockbusters on and tried different producing projects. Richard Donner made his most atypical film. And Chris Columbus wrote the script, and to triumph with the kid alone at home, there were still five years.

But there is in  the Goonies, the little detail that you may notice while watching the movie in young — this is the implication of separation as a child with your high school friends. In the film, there are a number of scenes this sadness is impossible not to notice: the child will end, your friends move away, who where; quietly disappear friendship century, will be only fleeting and occasional meetings. But, with the other hand, when I think about my childhood and the various adventures that had to go through, it becomes much warmer on the soul, just as well as and watching "the Goonies", which two hours transfer you to the best time to light — in childhood.

I remember when some times in childhood I watched the movie "Goonies" Richard Donner. Then, because I did not really think about the script, the story about the other parts of the picture. It's been a few years had a desire again to remember what I was happy and the laugh of this project. But as it turned out, the perception has changed a bit.

Actors quite a lot. With the beginning of the film is the creators are trying to tell us about each of the young heroes separately, and it alternately giving everyone a few minutes of screen time. And observe behavior special character in the whole very interesting. Because each of the guys is a very interesting personality. One loves sweet and if attention to appearance, brings humor to the picture it soon in the frame. The other combines in a serious way and simultaneously manages to joke. The third just likes to invent strange things in later repeatedly save his life. And are other interesting personalities, each of which brings something original. More interesting of course after a huge amount of time, given our day, observe the young Josh Brolina and Sean Austin, one of which repeatedly played with the Coen brothers in the movie ""true grit"" and""Old men do not place"", and other of the painting ""the Lord of the rings". In General, the cast was very amusing.

And here our team to find the attic of a mysterious map with marked on it the place where are alleged treasures, is sent to the c to find it. And as soon as the expanse of the abandoned home, the fun begins. In addition to and so the breaking in literally, head time and again, problems, a group of guys starts chasing a gang of criminals at the head of his angry and stern mother. Criminals, played by Robert Davi and Joe Pantoliano for the most part, silly though in some degree of threat. What is really just not tell about their mother, played by actress Anne Ramsey, so it is quite fear brought upon our heroes. In the process of chase eccentric criminals for our intrepid youths, with the time it becomes obvious that serious injury none of the young people will receive. Although it is a few shots the bandits made. And most surprising makeup is superimposed on the actor John Manjushaka.

The scenario, though not so interesting that the film had to turn off after a few minutes, but not particularly thoughtful. So that the dialogues in some places was somewhat stupid. And that with regard to, scenery, it all great. Underground caves, traps and found the skeletons remaining from past daredevils are implemented in detail. What is really talking about built in life-size pirate ship.

The result was the adventure project, as calculated on children's audience, so on people older. A great cast will enjoy jokes and funny decent game, not matter young age of the actors.
