Demolition 2015 Movie Review

The movie starts with successful investment banker Jake Gyllenhaal as Davis Mitchell. Davis married his boss daughter Heather Lind as Julia. Now in one accident, Julia dies. Then in the hospital, Davis uses a vending machine but after adding coins his food stuck. Then he writes a complaint letter to the vending machine company. In this complaint letter, he talks about his personal life and shares the situation which he is going through. On another side, Naomi Watts as Karen Moreno vending machine customer executive read this letter. Karen gets connect and sympathizes with Davis so she calls Davis. Now Davis shares more about his personal life details with Karen. Then slowly both of them start coming closer. Then Davis meets Karen's son. All the people think Davis should react sadly about his wife's death but he does not. He just start to react to this situation differently and he starts demolitioning stuff. This demolition of stuff makes him happy. The movie has an inspiring story but it feels boring after some time. The movie tries to inspire us and sympathizes with the character with every incident which feels bad. The only character that is focused on in the movie is Davis. Other characters are not explored very well. But Davis's character is still not fells connect with us and not feels like a loving character. Davis's character is complicated and what he doing in the movie not feels good. Some unnecessary stuff is added in the movie like Davis's heart issue but later in the movie, his health does not make any problem for him. The demolition of the stuff is shown as giving a piece to him and inspiring. But in reality that is something done by a mentally disturbed person. The story shows how a complaint later made connect of two people, that looks a little unrealistic. All actors did good acting, especially Jake Gyllenhaal played his character very well. The overall movie tries to give inspiring messages to us but ends up with a boring storyline. Overall I believe one-time a watchable movie.
