The Voices (2014)

Director: Marjane Satrapi

Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, Jacki Weaver

Jerry is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist, he pursues his office crush. However, the relationship takes a sudden, murderous turn after she stands him up for a date. Guided by his evil talking cat and benevolent talking dog, Jerry must decide whether to keep striving for normalcy, or indulge in a much more sinister path.

This is a really dark comedy with some bloody gore added to it. This was not that bad of a movie. I was surprised by how good that it was. It was not the best movie of that year, but it was one that mostly got ignored. You would think since Ryan Reynolds was the star of this movie, the movie would have done better.

Ryan Reynolds played the role of a serial killer well. He had that sweet innocent boy next door face that could never harm a fly. He kept his clothes on, so that you were not distracted by his body. You almost believed that he was an okay man, but then he started killing people. The talking to his pets was a great touch that happened to real serial killers. It all seemed like a story that was really true.

I did like this movie. It did not seem like a movie that Ryan Reynolds would do now, since his name and career are so large now. This would be a movie that someone would be in at the start of their career not at the middle of it. It is worth watching though. You may really like this movie a lot. Enjoy.
