Finch (2021) Review

This movie is produced by Apple TV plus, moreover, it is the second time the network corporates with Tom Hanks.

The story of the movie, in a nutshell, is taking place in the future of humanity, where the climate changes real bad, and the sun can easily hurt any living thing.

The only way to move between places can be done only by using special equipment and special vehicles.

We take a journey with Finch, this man lives in arguably complete solitude. And, according to the events, we learn that he is taking a journey while running away from a deadly storm, and other threats.

Finch is heading towards San Francisco, but lucky for him he isn’t going alone, he is taking with him his robot and his dog. The robot’s purpose is going to be clear from the beginning of the movie.

Tom Hanks is a top-notch actor, a first-class actor, he can give you some impeccable performances no matter how bad the script is. I can’t say that the story of the Finch movie is poor, however, it is duplicated and a kind of Cliché.

The movie depends a lot on charging the emotions of the spectators if you bond with the characters, the robot, the dog, and Finch, so you most likely going to enjoy the movie.

Other than that the movie is a little empty, shall I say. The characters go through rough times but you don’t feel worried about them. I am not going to spoil things for you of course, but the end depends big time on you being emotionally related to the characters.

Yeah, that is it, do I recommend the movie? yes, it is good enjoyable, to be honest!

Can I watch Finch (2021) with my parents or children

Well, you are going to be the judge for that, but a little warning; You can expect one use of shit.

Concerning sexual or nudity content, there is a side view of Finch totally naked after taking a bath at the beginning of the movie. Moreover, in terms of Violence, a robot gets smashed by a big bear trap.

Yeah, that’s it!
