On this week’s episode of “Nick At Night” we ripped actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan for ruining “The Walking Dead,” and reviewed two new movie trailers for “The Foreigner” and “The Commuter.”
“The Foreigner” sees Pierce Brosnan and Jackie Chan face-off in a high-octane thriller, with fast paced action and massive explosions. Chan loses his daughter in a terrorist attack and offers money for the identity of the bombers. Brosnan refuses to divulge the names of the suspects, causing Chan to snap and go on a killing spree.
This might be worth the price of admission if it’s done right.
The lack of comedic relief is new territory for both actors and a lot will depend on how director Martin Campbell chooses to handle the emotional tenor of the film.
The second trailer was for Liam Neeson’s “The Commuter.” This film looks like a swing and a miss, and the setting will likely limit the plot and hinder Neeson’s ability to make things exciting. The acting came across as flat, failing to hook the audience. Viewers need to be invested and have someone to root for. This teaser style may work with franchise movies, but not with original writing.
This could be a good compromise instead of a rom-com, but your wife or girlfriend probably won’t get much out of it.
Our last target of the evening was Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who portrays the iconic villain Negan in the AMC hit show “The Walking Dead.” Despite the hype, Morgan has failed to capture the essence of the character after one season of work, and appears to be dragging down the rest of the cast. His overacting and mannerisms are cringe worthy, and and his physique is nothing like the Negan of the comics. Negan was muscular and intimidating. He appeared gigantic in comparison to everyone else. Morgan on the other hand looks emaciated and sickly, which makes his bad guy persona hard to believe.
He also made an interesting clothing choice, sporting a red hipster scarf that never existed in the comics. Is he catching a chill? Or did he just think it would look cool? Either way it’s time for the producers to tell Morgan to step up his game, or risk ruining yet another beloved character and sending the show to an early death.
