Before I start my Spinning Out review, here’s a bit of background information. One of my all time favourite romance novels is From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata. It tells a story of Jasmine, an ice skater who is suddenly given an opportunity to skate competitively again. The catch, she has to partner up with her enemy, Ivan, and learn to skate in pairs. I love this book and going into Spinning Out I hoped this show would bring part of that book on screen for me!
There is so much violence in the world, which we get to witness on a day to day basis. We see the gruesome imagery on television, images that aren’t just fiction but also reality. Violence is, and always will be, part of humanity. If you’re looking for those images in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil & Vile, you will be disappointed. Because this film focuses not on the violence, but the man the violence hides behind.
This here is a spoiler alert.
The hardest thing is to dislike a movie you love… sounds confusing and trust me, I myself am confused as well. Everything in relation to The Maze Runner is pretty much unclear to me, except the fact that I love Dylan O’Brien as Thomas. So, while I have issues with the book and with the movie, I can’t find myself to not like the movie because of my own personal high expectations set on the dystopian genre… or can I?
