Paul (2011) Movie Review

Among the many VERY common titles that have graced the movie scene, this one to me is the champion of it all.

Paul is a very common guys name and the reason for this title being so simple is intentional (although it could be challenging on the marketing side).

That's why, when I heard about this movie, I couldn't recall what's it about and have no recollection of what to expect....until I googled it and remembered that I saw the trailer to this movie once about a month back or so.

It's the story of an alien who crash landed into planet earth and were whisked away and locked up by the secret government agents thereupon they harvest whatever knowledge they can get from him.

After many years later, when he has outlived his usefulness through knowledge sharing, he escapes and tries to go back to his home planet. In a fateful incident or more like accident, the alien 'met' with 2 Englishmen, Graeme Willy and Clive Gollings (who's played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), who's in America for holiday and for comic-con. Paul convinced them to help him out and they're on the run from the secret government agents who intend to capture Paul back and dissect him to further Science.

Overall a funny movie and it looks fun to be watched by kids.....only thing is it's rated for adults only due to the many funny, bizarre, expletives.

I rate this movie a 3.5 stars out of 5.

Thanks Isaac and TimeOut KL for the movie passes. :D
