Today I watched Catch Me If You Can for the second time to relive a brilliant film; Catch Me If You Can revolves around Frank Abagnale Jr. a teenager who before his 19th birthday pretended to be a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer in the interest of cashing fake cheques and ended up stealing over $4 million. Catch Me If You Can is directed by Steven Spielberg and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Amy Adams and Amy Acker (she is literally in this film for 30 seconds but she was in Angel).
There are lots of positives in this film, which include: good story, brilliant acting, good story progression and great humour. To expand, the story in this film is really cool it has clever twists of how he evades the FBI and just overall the story is really enjoyable to watch; this is partly due to the great acting across the board, everyone is great and the two leads (DiCaprio and Hanks) carry the film perfectly. One of the things that I love about this film is the humour, moments like when he impersonates a substitute teacher and when he evades the FBI at the airport are hilarious and help make the film thoroughly entertaining. There are barely any negatives to this film but the ones that I could pick out are that I wasn't emotionally attached to the film and that the story isn't complex. The story is good in this film and it is very entertaining but it is nothing outstanding.
Overall I really enjoyed this film and it was just as good as when I first watched it, and taking all I have said into consideration I rate this film:
