It seems some critics are in love with late Paul Walker's performance in the movie "Hours". The film has been released just after a month of his death and according to film analysts Paul has given one of his best performances in the film.
According to Elizabeth Weitzman of NY Daily News, "One of the final films completed by Paul Walker before died in a car crash last month, Hours marks a poignant farewell for its star - and a promising debut for director Eric Heisserer."
The well-known critic further added that, "Walker carries the picture almost single-handedly as Nolan, a father awaiting the birth of his first child in New Orleans just as Hurricane Katrina is about to hit."
The film gave opportunity to Walker to bid farewell to his popular "Fast And Furious" image and show his mettle as an actor. The sad part is that Walker is no longer alive to see the fate of the film, which could have redefined his career.
Alan Scherstuhl wrote in memory of Walker "He was a transparent hunk, somehow convincing audiences he was more like us schlubs in the seats than he was like Vin Diesel, The Rock, or the Abercrombie models he actually resembled. Now, just weeks after his out-of-nowhere death, Walker is starring in a film that demands the opposite of him. For once, he shows his work. In Hours, Walker plays his every-est everyman yet, a regular fella named Nolan who faces problems that can't be solved by stunt driving."
We are sure Walker's family and fans must be rejoicing, the critically acclaimed "Hours" has received. Hopefully, the movie emerges victorious at the Box office.
However, some of critics wrote that the filmmaker did not use Walker's talent to the fullest. R. Kurt Osenlund of Time Out wrote:
"There's something vexing about the use of a baby as narrative device, and the movie leans too heavily on her inborn potential for heart-tuggery. And though Walker, in his most demanding part, does his best to transcend his characteristically bro-ish demeanor, he's ultimately failed by this film, whose script and questionable taste hardly add up to a eulogy-worthy goodbye."
Of course, this is what critics have to sa but what his fans might think of it would be different. Let us know what you think about Paul Walker's role in the film "Hours".
