The Actor that Plays the Same Character

Every movie actually puts its own spin on how they want the audience to view or understand the story. Even if the movie is a remake or a sequel, there will always be that uniqueness that the writers, producers, and directors want to be able to satisfy and fit into the new world. I actually go to the cinematography of a movie first before the way the actors handle their characters whenever I watch a movie. It's where critics can easily pinpoint the bad and the good part of the film since they look at the story with the same amount of focus as they do to production design. The overall score will run down to how everything matches together.

People today want value. So when an actor pitches to have that credibility to be able to act and perform better than what is expected and he or she does the otherwise then it sets the alarm bells ringing. There are movies that take advantage of what their actors can do or how these actors are viewed by the audience, from the most popular to the least known. I know that movies are made by actors since it's their job and they want to bring home the bacon, however, it's part of their entertainment history where they just don't want the audience to view it as a comedy thing. Well, there are comedies that are top-notch and are considered to be outstanding because of how the story was done. However, there are times that the production just takes advantage of the situation and people because they want to make money.

I have huge respect for actors and actresses who puts a lot of effort whenever they do films. I find it amazing how they can transform from a different person in real life to practice a character they have never done before. Just like how Jacky Chan managed to do Rush Hour even though it's an English film and he was not that good with his English language. There are a lot of bloopers that can be watched on the internet where he has trouble pronouncing English words, especially if it's like a tongue-twister sentence. But what's amazing about it is at least he didn't just try, he did his best to be able to perform since he knows the audience is expecting him to play a great inspector in an English production. On the other hand, if you know the one who played Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, in the first two seasons of The Crown, Vanessa Kirby. I find her portrayal of royalty better than the second one who took over. I didn't say that Helena Bonham Carter was not great but I actually prefer her in that role. In my opinion, the preceding roles of Kirby are totally different from one another. I haven't watched all of her films but those I have watched are really different characters.

Kirby was part of the film Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw where Dwayne Johnson is in as well, alongside Jason Statham. And I'm not a The Rock hater but I am having a hard time contrasting him to his other characters like in the Journey to the Mysterious Island, Skyscraper, Rampage, and to other films related.

I don't know if it's just a coincidence that Johnson is playing someone who always gets in trouble, whether it's in the city or in the jungle. I haven't seen him do a different character with a different storyline. Well, his movies are obviously different from one another but the portrayal of his characters, in a nutshell, is actually quite the same. I haven't seen all of his films but most of the movies he made are battles with another battle. Actually, he's great with those portrayals and I don't see anyone, in some of his films, portray it better than he does. However, if you will look at the bigger picture, he acts the same way in a different production. Well at least, he is not like Tom Holland who looks like he goes to a different set and wonders how to get out of it but since he can't, he just dealt with the movie. I can understand if it's like Tom Cruise in his Mission Impossible movies or Liam Neeson in his Taken movies since each one follows a character in a different problem in a different city. I'm not sure if Johnson really wants to become an actor when he was a child or if he was a theater actor because if he is both or just either of the said ones, he could have done better acting, in my opinion.

Again, I'm not a Johnson hater. He's actually a funny guy whenever I watch his interviews and from what I watch and hear, he looks like he's a great father. Sometimes, I just wish I had a father like him. He seems to be a very great dad that will just help you with your math problem and both of you will just cry in the first question, then just have a breakdown for the rest of the problems.

As successful as Dwayne Johnson is as a movie star, I don't think he's consciously made the decision to be a good actor. Kevin Hart fares way better. But then again, DJ has admitted that he makes movies to entertain so I don't think he's ready to take on projects that will test his acting mettle. In truth, if he did drama, his fans might be alienated, and his movies won't be a back-office draw. If you want serious acting then the movie isn't going to have that huge a commercial appeal and will likely deal with a serious subject matter.
