Tropic Thunder (2008)

Tropic Thunder is actually a movie in progress played by Speedman (Ben Stiller), Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.), Chino (Brandon T. Jackson), Portnoy (Jack Black) and Sandusky ( Jay Baruchel). The production of the movie is a month behind schedule and has been spending millions of dollars. The director was not able to properly organized their actors while the actors showed no emotional attachment to the movie or its story.

The writer of the Tropic Thunder was believed to be one of those armies who fought the Viet Cong during the Vietnam war. However it was found that he was neither a soldier nor having no fingers, he wrote the story for the tribute to those who fought in war.

The actors were sent into the jungle to shot the movie. They were told that cameras were installed all over the place. They were given a map and continuing to do the scenes. Speedman (Ben Stiller) part ways with the group and soon captured with the Dragons “a known heroin producer”. The group continued to travel and found out that speedman is captured. They plan an ambush based on the film’s plot line and was a success. They were able to rescue Speedman and the rest of the group.

The story is some sort of comedy, action and drama. One of the funny parts is in their shooting part wherein one army was shot in the head and then came blood rushing out like a water in the faucet. Also funny part is when sadusky is attacked with a knife in his stomach, his intestines are coming out and his holding in it. Speedman’s hand become like a blooming flowers. In the story I was surprised when a kid appears to be the leader of the Dragon. No wonder to be him because he knows Kung Fu. I enjoy the whole story. It is really another big hit in Ben Stiller’s movie.
