    Default Redeeming Love (2022)

    Hello everyone. Today I'm going to review the movie called Redeeming Love (2022) that I saw yesterday.

    Spoiler: My Thoughts On Redeeming Love (2022)
    Show
    Yesterday morning I saw the movie called Redeeming Love. It was based on a book. This movie is about a prostitute named Angel who has a very sad and disturbing life right until she met a farmer name, Michael. What I like about this movie is that it was very serious and powerful. It was very well written. There was a lot of flashback of Angel's childhood. There wasn't anything that I dislike about this movie. It was a very serious movie even though it rated PG-13. I enjoy this movie very much. I'll give this movie 10 out of 10 stars.

    Can you tell us how the film was very serious? Where there any actors who gave particularly strong or weak performances? Anything in particular in the plot you liked or thinked could be improved?

    Where the part was there was so much fighting against women. Also, all the actors and actresses' performance was great. Also like I said before I like how they reveal Angel's childhood.

    Please tell me this movie isn't "Downtrodden prostitute gets saved by the love of a man."

    Would you say it was better or worse than Pretty Woman?

    It is.

    I never saw Pretty Woman so I can't verify my opinion on that.

    And now I've lost all interest in this film.

    It would probably help if you could explain why. Or, barring that, why it doesn't live up to the expressed fear that this is another Madonna-Whore Complex story where the female protagonist (laden with moral turpitude) is saved from her ruinous self by the redeeming (hey, right there in the title) force of a good man's love? Or, if it is that kind of story, why it is watchable and engaging despite that.

    We've gotten less than an elevator-pitch level on what the movie is and what it is about. I'm prepared to hear that it exceeds our expectations. We just need to hear why.

    It's not though. Nothing in the spoiler addresses their concerns in any way. Your spoiler basically tells me nothing unless I'ved already seen the movie.

    Well, it's up to them if they want to see the movie or not. I already explained my thoughts on the movie very clear.

    Yes, but you did not in any way address the concerns they have.

    Go back over Willie the Duck's post and just answer the questions. They're very straight-forward, and you should be able to answer them if you've seen the movie.

    If I'm writing a review of The Wrath of Khan there are multiple scenes I could spend an entire page of A4 writing about, and many themes I could talk about without s single spoiler. I could talk about the model work or visual design, I could discuss if this is a film that's better without sequels (which is my personal opinion), I could relate it to previous science fiction epics, or discuss how the entire film is based around character relationships, and discuss why I believe this is the best acting William Shatner has done. I can give people an idea of if they'll like the film without giving a single spoiler, and I can tell you why this is a revenge story worth watching.

    Or I could say it's a film where Kirk meets an old for, nearly gets defeated, but comes out on top thanks to a crew member's sacrifice. I really like the space scenes and most of the actors give solid performances.


    Actually, why am I here? I have TOS season 1 on DVD, that's a far better use of my time.

    No you haven't. We've all asked for detail, but you've remained at surface level.

    But then again, why would you listen this time when you've ignored every previous piece of advice people have given you regarding your reviews.

    The reason why I love this movie is that Angel has to endure the hardship that she suffered In her childhood that she leads to where she is today in the brothel.

    Okay, now go a level deeper. What are the emotions? What themes does the film explore? Is there any important recurring imagery. What character relationships drive the plot (beyond the one you've already told us about)?

    The movie explores how much anger and abuse she has to suffer from sexual abuse from her father and also the physical abuse of her security guard. Which leads to her rescue from Michael.
