Wrestling Isn't Wrestling full movie review - All you need to know about wrestling in 25 minutes
Well.. I could actually fit this in 1 minute as I don't think you need to know anything about the fake sport of Wrestling.
"Wrestling Isn't Wrestling" is a short film from about half a year ago and it was written and directed by Max Landis. I have seen his much older take on Superman as well and I must say it is fairly annoying how he is always so dull of himself apparently in all the films he directs. It's subjective perception how much you like his style where you see people say things and hear Landis' voice instead of their voice. In here he tells a quick history of wrestling and the famous wrestlers are all played by young women and voiced by Landis. And in the end it becomes fairly pretentious too. Landis is one of the rising stars in terms of writing, worked on quite a few big films recently. I have not seen them, so I cannot be a judge, but looking at his short film work I must say I am not interested at all in him as a director at least. I guess when he "only" writes, he is somewhat kept back by his director. In this one here, he seems incredibly full of himself spitting ultimate wisdom apparently all the time and it's quite a distraction from the (actually forgettable) action in here. Pretty ridiculous that this has an 8.4 rating right now. Not recommended.
