One Sentence: These people deserve nothing.
After Credits: None
There are not many times that I can remember where I never saw a place for a movie. Even movies I have hated I have felt like they probably have a place in Cinema, or with a certain set of fans, or something that makes them belong somewhere in film. I am having a real hard time finding any reason why The Family exists as a movie.
If I really was reaching I could say that anything with Dianna Agron in it is worth seeing because she is stunning, but I don’t know if that is valid enough of a reason for a whole movie to exist. Besides her, I can’t find any reason why anyone would ever need to see The Family. Which I think is a comedy? I am not sure about that. It is more like a Xenophobic attack on the French and a look into the lives of 4 psychopaths, that happen to be a family.
It was not funny, not cute, not smart, not witty. It was a view into 4 seriously disturbed people, and an attempt to make them anti-heroes. It instead only makes you wonder why did you have to spend any time at all on these horrible characters, and what on earth was Luc Besson thinking trying to write a movie for people like this. You never because emphatic toward them, or were given any level of understanding of their ultra-violent behavior. You are just shown that these sickos deserve nothing, except long jail terms to be forgotten forever, which is what I wish I could do with this film.
