It really dose hurt when a movie you being looking forward to turns out to be a big disappointment, what hurts more is that it was a huge miss opportunity for being something great.
The story is about celebrated military contractor returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs - the US Space program in Honolulu, Hawaii - and reconnects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog assigned to him.
Aloha was my most anticipated film of 2015 just because of the big name cast and the director himself, I mean Cameron Crowe as a film making is just amazing, yeah he had some down falls with his movie but he also made some fantastic movies that today is he's best work. Say Anything, Jerry Maguire and Almost Famous was him at his prime and judging by the trailer of this movie he looked like he was going back to his best, that's why I was looking forward to it. After seeing the movie... this movie sucks, I mean what a freaking disappointment this movie was. 2015 so far has so hard hitting disappointments and this is one of them.
Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Bill Murray and Rachel McAdams all do fine in they roles and what they had to work with. They didn't do anything special in the movie just okay and to me that's the biggest waste of talent, I mean you got big name actors in this movie and they do alright performance. Just a waste.
There's moments in this movie were it was a bit interesting with the dialogue from the character's and the overall setting of the movie, but even that doesn't last very long.
Now for problems: The chemistry between Bradly Cooper and Emma Stone dose not work at all, I mean they had zone chemistry with each other and I thought it will be best if they were like best friends not lovers.
Bill Murray has nothing to do in this movie, but in the trailer for this movie he gave such a moving and true to life speech and I couldn't wait to see it in the movie I mean even if the movie wasn't so good at least I get to here the speech right? well that didn't happen at all and Bill Murray himself has got nothing to do in this movie, so that's another waste right there.
The movie itself is dull and it feels like a 4 hour movie at times with the messy pasting and the uninteresting character's. I wanted this movie to be great I really did, but it sadly came off as a mess of the film that could have been so much better.
