Actor Jake Gyllenhaal delivers an energetic and powerful performance in The Guilty, the new Netflix film from Antoine Fuqua.
The Guilty is a remake of the Danish film of the same name that manages to be at the level of the original. Especially for the interpretation of Jake gyllenhaal, one of the best actors of today that we have recently seen in Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), Velvet buzzsaw (2019) and Nocturnal animals (2016).
The movie The Guilty puts us in Los Angeles when there are multiple fires and 911 call center operator Joe Baylor (Jake Gyllenhaal) He tries to save a woman in danger, but soon discovers that nothing is what it seems and has to face the truth.
First criticism of the film The Guilty (Guilty):
- While it’s a breathless showcase for Jake Gyllenhaal’s talents, the fairly faithful remake loses some of the blunt edges of the original.
- The actor gives him all his volcanic character in a film that keeps him in the center of almost every frame.
- Nic Pizzolatto’s script offers little improvement over the 2018 original, but Antoine Fuqua’s confident direction and Jake Gyllenhaal’s powerful acting are worth the price of admission.
- A thrilling plot and fierce yet unbridled acting are the main reasons to watch this remake of the excellent Danish thriller from 2018.
- The power of Jake Gyllenhaal and Antoine Fuqua make this small-scale thriller seem bigger.
- The actor delivers a twist that is convincingly complex, taking the audience on an emotional roller coaster that results in one of his best performances yet.
- Jake Gyllenhaal shines as a 911 operator in The Guilty, Antoine Fuqua’s remake of a Danish thriller, attempting to rethink the one-man, one-place story for modern America without much change.
