"Let Me In" Movie Review By: SandwichJohn

"Let Me In" Movie Review
By: SandwichJohn

First off I have to thank Jen and Overture Films for inviting me to the press screening last Thursday. It was one hell of a drive from Sacramento to LA. but well worth the drive and time.

Let Me In is a film that can stand on it own, a remake what? If I hadn't attend the panel for it during Comic-Con I would have never known this film was a remake until I had done some research on the movie. The film is based on the John Ajvide Lindqvist novel “Let the Right One In” and the Swedish film adaptation of the same name.

Let Me In tells a terrifying tale about an alienated 12-year old boy named Owen (Smit-McPhee) who is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex. His only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Moretz), an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father (Jenkins). A frail, troubled child about Owen’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements. Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond.



I really enjoyed the film's story and the overall story behind the film. When a strange young lady tells you that you two can't be friends maybe sometimes we should all take the hint and not befriend that person. Abby was a quite shy little girl with some serious secrets which were revealed during the film. Her vampire look and abilities made her undeniably frighting. Chloe Moretz did an amazing job of portraying the 12 year old vampire in the film. She was very soft spoken and terrifying at the same time, And when it came to feeding time a whole another person came on screen.



Owen (Smit-McPhee) is a little more creepy to me. He is a young man who's mother has no time for him and hangs out on the apartment playground throughout the night. This poor kid is bullied all through school, which can turn a young man dark. Which does happen to Owen as things get worse for him with the bullies. Also, Richard Jenkins has an outstanding performance as the caretaker for Abby throughout the years. As the story develops in the film you will see why Jenkins is so loyal to Abby and the heartache he has to go though to keep her alive and happy.

I really enjoyed the directing of the film, one of the highlights of the movie was the car crash and the cinematography of the crash was incredible. When the car runs off the road and continues to filp over and over the shot is amazing. A second highlight is Owen’s mother, her face is never revealed throughout the film. The shots of her from a long distance and just how the camera was angled keep you guessing to what she looks like and whom portrayed her.

The music throughout the film will bring you back to your earlier years with all the great 80's music and the arcade scenes that we all grew up enjoying. The music is a little over done but nothing that you can not deal with thoughout the film. Michael Giacchino’s score is right for the film. He is an talented composer and brings the same intense feeling to the film as he did to the show Lost.

I can't give a comparison to this film and the original. Let Me In can stand on its own and to me is one of the Best vampire films to come out in the last decade! Heart felt and a great coming of age film with all the blood and guts you need for a vampire film. A  MUST see movie.

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be centerstage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.
