TRESPASS AGAINST US REVIEWED
“Trespass Against Us” is a film that I’ve watched off and on for the last three weeks. That being said, I still don’t get it. Yeah, it’s an Irish crime movie about a family growing apart. It’s just that I feel Michael Fassbender was far too old for the role he played. If you got that Taron kid from “Sing” and “Kingsman”, then I would’ve bought the role. For an hour and 40 minutes, I just couldn’t commit to a world where Fassbender had a childish devotion to his criminal father.
If a viewer can get past that, there are some wonderful driving scenes. The initial heist that sets the film into play isn’t that impressive. Sure, it would look great on TV, but viewers should have a certain expectation for film. There was a time when the cinematic experience had certain requirements to really connect with people. Modern audiences are just subjected to anything that can stick. While not the worst thing in the world, it’s hard to find a reason to care about lackluster production values.
Watch it for the acting and stick with it to figure out what age Fassbender is supposed to be playing.
