Fun, Trippy and Effortful Journey into... Nothing

Decent and creative movies centered around psychadelic drugs and the sensations, phenomenons they bring, are a rarity, or at least it feels so. As I've always taken a lot of interest in the world of a psychonaut, I'm always looking out for movies like this - "The Wave" basks in the right bowl, though being much more sci-fi than anything else. It has the goods, it has the flaws, it's certainly a huge effort by everyone involved. "The Wave" is a very lively, tightly made movie, during its first half you can sit back and enjoy the filmmakers' awesome artistry in which wrapped in are a lot of awesome suquences, some of them can even induce anxiety & all of them amuse and entertain. The humour is decent & the acting performances, honestly, frickin rock, Justin Long works up an effortful and tense lead. My favorite highlight most definitely is Tommy Flanagan as the mysterious drug aficionado Aeolus, but I have to say that literally every supporting character is as fun and vivid as the movie itself. Aesthetically "The Wave" is a hoot, dynamic, inventive, visibly full of creative technical solutions and enthusiasm. The problem with this considerably well hitting wave is the story it brings - the first half continues to add awesome stuff on more awesome stuff, seemingly building something bigger only to end up nowhere in the end. I theorise that it has a few anologies about the effects of recreational drugs like shrooms and LSD, the ego death, acknowledgment of one's flaws and the ultimate acceptance and sense of humanity. "The Wave" also has time travel and no explanation for most of its story, so that's that. At first, "The Wave" appears fresh, different and very promising, but it has flaws - lack of substance, sort of botched ending and more - that are quite successfully hid (for some time) behind a commendable team effort and a very fun movie. Recommend for the lovers of all things trippy. My rating: 7/10.

Different

This is a great movie to watch with open minded friends, with people who have ever tripped or just alone. I saw that trailer at a local Indy theater and decided to order on Xbox when it dropped. So to start I would say it's honestly a solid 7.5. Justin Long turns in a role that suits his style of acting perfectly. The build up is great and the film is extremely hard to predict. As for Donald faison he personifies the words "loyal friend" and delivers a fun preformance. The movie does come on in waves and leaves certain things to interpretation. Definitely worth at least a try for the efforts turned in on the visuals alone. Thanks for the read!

Hell of a ride

Everything is so unexpected. I never heard of this movie before but Justin Long always plays awkward yet likeable characters and the way he is thrown into this tornado of events just makes you keep wanting to watch more and more. You are in it with him and it's one hell of a trip, literally.
