Our Brand is Crisis is adapted from the 2005 documentary of Rachel Boynton of the same name. What’s it all about? This movie is a big screen version of real life election. 

Plot

Bolivia forms the backdrop of this movie and the service of two brand and political consultants, who are foes, is needed by a couple of presidential candidates. This is for an election to take place in Bolivia. Sandra Bullock Once dubbed as “The Girl Next Door” and “America’s >> Read More... ’s help is required by the political consultancy organization that is taking control of the election of Joaquim De Almeida. Sandra is a reputed name in her field of expertise. And predictably Sandra takes up this assignment with conviction though she is retired, since Billy Bob Thornton Billy Bob Thornton is a popular American director, >> Read More... , the political consultant of the person who is the strong contender, is the man behind her retirement. And with what fervor does Bullock take this mission! But wait, this is not as simple as it seems to be. Almeida is a poor contender, and his ratings are very low. Does Bullock turn the tables completely? Watch the movie to find out. 

Star Performances

The movie surely belongs to Bullock.; this is a tailor-made role for her. She portrays the role of a fixated and disturbed lady really well.  Sandra Bullock plays a character that is so uncommon for her. She is at her funniest best but with a tad bit aggression. As for Almeida he is at his composed best, who though is upright, takes the unwanted route to winning the election. Billy Bob Thorton is not utilized in the movie. 

What’s there?

  • Witty humor is shrewdly interspersed in this movie so that the film doesn’t seem to be cliched. 
  • There are elements of illogicality, but the surprising fact is that it acts in favor the film. 
  • The speeches and dialogues cleverly target at the present electoral politics. 

What’s not there?

  • The reason for Sandra Bullock’s accusation could have been addressed better.
  • The happenings are predictable. 
  • Though the movie starts off on a promising note, it stumbles in the end. 

Analysis

Well, how do you label this movie? Is it a peculiar blend of satire and political absurdness? Well, whatever it is the film also has its share of self-realization. 
Election campaigns are dealt with in Hollywood movies often, and this film has nothing new to offer. In the meantime, the Indians are still to be familiar with such campaigns and hence they will find it a quite new. 

Verdict

The film is high on the personal discovery of Sandra Bullock rather than the political element. Some humor interspersed with Bullock's splendid performance makes this movie a one-time watch.
