From the outside Jerry looks like a charming, chipper guy who works at a bathtub factory. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush. However, the relationship takes a sudden murderous turn when he listens guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog.
This movie is like Psycho for a new generation. It has a unique blend of comedy, horror, heartbreak and suspense which keeps you wanting more.
Ryan Reynolds gives one of his best performances in a while. He turns on the charm and the fear, to the point where he becomes Jerry and you are whisked away into the mind and madness of the character. Ryan Reynolds also does the voices of the talking animals which are unforgettable and Reynolds is amazing as each one.
The story is similar to ones we have seen before but The Voices has a unique charm about it. With just the right blend of horror and comedy, I felt like I couldn't get enough of this film. Marjane Satrapi did a amazing job directing The Voices. The change between reality and what Jerry perceives when he is not on his meds is stunning, fun and freighting all at once.
The Voices is a fun and twisted movie which is another reason to look for uncommon in depended films. I hope to see Ryan Reynolds get more outstanding rolls like this in the future. Cheers and remember life won't suck as long as there is a good movie to watch.
9 out of 10
