Movie Review: "Fences"

What an interesting movie! I'm usually into movies that have explosions or zombies or superheroes or cute animated critters. "Fences" has none of that. Instead, the movie is a drama through and through, with long dialogues, well-defined characterizations and gritty realism. Set in the late 1950s-early 1960s, "Fences" is about one man (Denzel Washington) struggling to escape his past, and struggling even more to maintain his present. The story centers around unfulfilled dreams and their effect on this man and his family. There is love, bitterness, hope and betrayal.

Basically, the movie feels like you're sitting in on a drawn-out family drama and seeing how each member deals with the circumstances.

I enjoyed the movie, but I don't think I could sit through many of these without getting bored. What makes "Fences" a success is the incredible acting performances by all involved, especially Denzel Washington and Violet Davis. Sometimes, while watching the film, you can't help but stop and think, "Whoa, this acting is amazing!" Very Oscar worthy.

All in all, I give "Fences" 3.5 out of **** stars. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Smiley
