I attended the preview screening of the movie ‘EXPLOSION’ this evening and there was a ‘first’ for me. It was the first time I sat behind someone who kept getting freaked out by an action movie – with loud exclamations of “AIYOH!”, “AIYAHHHHH!” and “OH NOOO! OH NOOO! OH NOOOOO!”. I would say that there could be even more gore, violence and non-stop action in this movie, but that poor lady sitting in front of me would probably have suffered a heart attack. Her husband (they’re both middle-aged, by the way) had to keep shushing her but as they were walking out of the theatre at the end of the movie, and somehow another scene came on together with the credits, this lady still turned back to watch, as if she couldn’t get enough of it. LOL!
In short, this movie is about a guy they call the “blaster technician” – his job is to create those explosions at mines. An “accident” happens and 4 of his colleagues got killed in the blast. He suspects foul play as he’s been at this job for 20 years and no such accident has occurred before. And that’s where it all starts… a hired assassin after his life, the police chasing after him, etc.
Sure, some parts of the plot could have been tidied up. Like, why would the person responsible for the “accident” have left incriminating evidence behind for this male lead to find? Wouldn’t you clean up the scene of the crime if your actions actually caused the deaths of 4 men?
Still, watch this movie for all those “OH NOOO!” parts where you’ll be covering your mouth in order not to scream out loud (or just let it out like that lady in front of me did).
Actually, I do not recommend bringing older folks along for this movie. I saw that someone had brought his grandma along. Stop frightening our seniors, please. 😛
