Danny Collins: Movie review

‘Danny Collins’ is the latest movie from Al Pacino, who stars as washed-up, doped-up, 1970s rocker, Danny Collins.


Loosely based on a true story, the film follows Collins journey to change his life course after receiving a heartfelt letter from John Lennon – 40 years after it was sent.

Pacino gives a star performance in this redemptive film, with plenty of fire power from a strong supporting cast that includes Christopher Plummer, Annette Benning, Jennifer Garner and Bobby Cannavale.

This film was deeper and more emotionally authentic than expected, and Pacino manages to expertly navigate some of the schmultzier moments with a blend of pizzazz and old school charm.

There’s a great soundtrack of Lennon music and some fun eye candy; including a couple of slicko cars and a private jet.

I recommend this film if you’re a Pacino fan or looking for something with a little depth.

It’s still playing at the local cinemas, and here’s the official trailer for you to check out:
