John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Burnt

burntBecky and I went to see the new movie Burnt at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch, CO on Friday night. The Fandango website at Burnt. describes the movie as follows…

“Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper), a young chef who was once a rising star in the restaurant world, is recovering from a drug addiction that had decimated his promising career. After getting clean he heads to London to take the helm of a top restaurant and is determined to earn it three Michelin stars…”

The Review:  Becky was interested in seeing this flick because Bradley Cooper was cooking.  I could have gone either way with going to see it, but I kind of thought that it wouldn’t be that good of a movie.  It turns out that I was right.  It’s a pretty boring film about an arrogant chef who has a serious addiction problem and trying to find his way back after screwing up his career.  The characters were kind of interesting, but watching a bunch of food being cooked for most of the movie was pretty boring.

The movie overall wasn’t very good.  The acting was good, but the story was rather dull.  It just didn’t grab your interest and make you want to really get into the main characters life.  He seemed too much like a spoiled and privileged brat and he’s a jerk to everyone in the film for most of the movie as he goes about trying to find himself.  We left the movie thinking it would have probably been a good rental instead of sitting in the theater to watch this one.

Becky and I both rated this movie a rental for sure.
