The Review: Swiss Army Man

Swiss Army Man 8/10

Someone at work showed me the trailer for Swiss Army Man and the next day my cousin Jasmine mentioned it because she had seen it. We decided to check it out and I am so glad we did. This is one of those movies where if the trailer doesn't get you interested you should skip it. I saw it and was all in. This stars Paul Dano as this guy named Hank all alone on an island that wants to just die. He is just about to hang himself when he notices a man wash ashore. He slips and for real begins to hang before falling down and pulling the body ashore.

Hank gets annoyed after the corpse keeps on farting and pushes it away until he sees that the body is propelling itself across the water on its ass gas and hops aboard and shoots across the sea to another island. After getting it into his cave and talking to it suddenly the body makes a sound. He punches it and runs away before coming back when the body, played by Daniel Radcliffe, asks why he punched him. After some sounds come out that sound like a name he is called Manny. Hank discovers that Manny can not only use gas to move, it can shoot water from its mouth to drink, judo chop wood, start fires by snapping his fingers and making a spark against his farts, and also using his mouth like a machine gun. Radcliffe has been starring in some strange ass movies lately.

I really don't want to ruin anymore of this movie but it is more than what the trailer makes it seem like. Yes, there is a farting corpse that can talk and spew water from its mouth but there is another story in this about having no confidence in yourself and not being able to reconcile your past. This was a really good movie and the ending made me lose my mind laughing for a few minutes. I literally could not stop laughing at what I was watching on screen. If you get the chance you should definitely check this movie out. If I had to compare it to something else it would be like Pan's Labyrinth or Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.
