Actions Speak Louder than Words
When I first saw the trailer for Mute I thought ‘Alexander Skarsgård has to do that whole movie without saying a word? That must be so difficult.’ But his face is so expressive he didn’t need words. Surrounded by the neon future, and some interesting fashions, the undercity of Berlin seems to have sunk into a mixture of dirt, crime, and futuristic food services (they could deliver to your phone!?!).
And I couldn’t help but like it. I never completely believed the relationship between Leo and his girlfriend -it didn’t quite feel like enough to send him off in violent pursuit. But once things start clicking into place you kinda wanna see how it turns out.
When his girlfriend goes missing a mute bartender goes up against the cities gangsters to find the truth. But who is friend and who is foe?
Starring Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood, The Legend of Tarzan), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man, The Perks of Being a Wall Flower), Justin Theroux (The Girl on the Train, American Psycho), Seyneb Saleh (Deutschland 86, Dogs of Berlin), and Robert Sheehan (Fortitude, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones).
Mute Review Conclusion
I would watch it again – Whilst it has plenty of action it isn’t a particularly fast movie. And you have to stick with it a bit in the beginning as all the pieces are put in place. But I did enjoy it and would definitely watch it again.
