November Criminals 2017 Review

Storyline: The hero of the book is 18-year-old Addison Schacht, a Jewish high-school senior in Washington D.C.. The book is his response to the essay question, “What are your best and worst qualities?”. He explains he has only bad qualities, as illustrated by the events of his senior year. They include collecting offensive jokes; dealing drugs to his classmates; and insulting teachers, fellow students, and his girlfriend’s mother. But his classmate is killed, and he begins to investigate the death.

November Criminals 2017 very Hot

I really liked November Criminals 2017. There were certain scenes that blew me away how well they were crafted and how impactful they managed to be. The film’s strongest quality is undoubtedly the chemistry between its two leads. Chloë Grace Moretz and Ansel Elgort were an absolute pleasure to watch. In fact they were so good I remember thinking to myself at one point that these two must be together in real life because they are just so good together.

It’s very clear that this was based on a novel. I didn’t know that for sure while watching but I was almost certain, and sure enough turned out to be right. It just has that feel about it. I find that movies based on a novel often have grittier characters who have been through a lot more trauma in their life than characters in screenplays written directly for the screen.

The characters are great, the cast is outstanding and the story is interesting, well paced and though-provoking. It really is hard to find fault with this movie. An already short run time absolutely flies by before you know it. I would thoroughly recommend giving ‘November Criminals’ a watch.

November Criminals 2017: Better than I expected

This isn’t the finest piece of film-making you’ll see, but it’s far from the worst. The cast is small, with Ansel Elgort and Chloë Grace Moretz an ideal pairing for the lead roles.

The story establishes itself quickly and unfolds at a steady pace. The climax should have been sharper, but it’s passable. The characters could have been developed more deeply, especially considering there’s some history on show that wasn’t touched on in sufficient detail for it to be meaningful. Though well handled cinematically (and some would say realistically), the inevitable sexual relationship the lead characters embark on wasn’t really necessary in terms of storytelling aside from what was a solid ending. That being said, the writing and directing were adequate, and the cast as a whole didn’t disappoint.

If you’re looking for a film that skews younger, isn’t too long, isn’t overly emotional or complex, and gets the basics right in most cases, November Criminals is worth a look.

November Criminals 2017: Just Enough

I love both of the leads in this one, Ansel Elgort I have loved him ever since “The Fault in Our Stars” and Chloe Grace Moretz ever since “Kick Ass” and “Kick Ass 2”. In actuality I think they helped carry this movie and script. The story just gives us enough for the ride, but felt as though they could have given the stars a better vehicle and more to go with. It is about a friend that is tragically killed in a robbery where he works and then after leaves the main character questioning the murder.

November Criminals 2017 Reviews: Most of the movie is about our main character Addison played by Elgort digging in to find out more about the tragedy and the why’s. It’s believable as I found myself thinking if a good friend of mine was murdered I would want to know why. Again it leaves us with just enough intrigue to peak our interest as viewers. I payed to stream it online with a friend and neither of us were disappointed, even my friend liked it more and would have rated it a 10 over the 8 I gave it. Again I think our two main characters are great talents and I will seek them out in any movie they star in. Perhaps you will wait to see it on a DVD, but by any means do so as I think it’s quite an enjoyable ride!!
