Movie Review - Premium

Tuesday, February 20, 2007

Premium consists of a talented cast and director who brings the three dimenstional characters to life on film. Dorian Missick plays the lead character (Cool). Cool is a struggling actor working at his mother's boyfriend's full service gas station and lives at home with his mother. He accidentally runs into his ex-girlfriend Charli(Zoe Saldana) when she pulls into the station for gas. Cool's life becomes more complicated as days go by. He's disappointed to learn she's engaged to be married later on that week to Ed, played by Hill Harper. Cool attempts to convince Charli to give their relationship a second look, but she's determined to leave him in the past and concentrate on her upcoming wedding. Both struggle with dealing with unresolved issues.

One of my favorite scenes in Premium is when Cool, Charli and Ed are sitting around the dinner table. The clever way Cool reveals his and Charli's history to Ed, as well as the dialogue between him and Ed, is borderline comical. As Cool goes from audition to audition, you wonder if he'll ever get his big break or if he's chasing after a pipe dream.

Overall, this romantic comedy is entertaining and follows the complicated yet simple life of a man who is determined, despite the many obstacles standing in his way, to win personally and professionally. Premium will be in theaters this Friday.
