Films that fall under the genre like historical drama, beautiful war movies and biopics are often criticized for taking liberty with the historical facts. They are really accused of bending the storyline to dramatize events and make interesting movies. Amongst such movies is "Pearl Harbor", which was released within much criticism. With film makers taking such liberty while using the historical subject matters, it is actually both disrespectful and unforgivable. Due to such movies gullible audiences go on to believe a fiction to be the fact, which is not a good thing. On the other hand there are videos that fall under action and horror genres which are criticized for violent contents. Movie fans like Quentin Tarantino in Movie and Anurag Kashyap in Bollywood have their respective reason and logical explanations with regards to such contents. Despite all their reasonable explanations there is no question that the exposure to violence could potentially cause personality disorder in children and other receptive demographic. There is proper processes of recognition and allotting category a show goes through before its offer to diminish such adverse effects. Even so their presence is only as nice as the implementation.

Unlike others, I would say it was a nice movie from Ridley Scott. Certainly not a masterpiece, but I truly enjoyed it. For his capability this movie was a below par, that's what everyone meant. As for the theme of the story, it was a phenomenal, but the screenplay is what failed very badly. To me, some of the scenes in the movie were impressive, enough to stick around the end. As has been a gangster related subject, Midas touch lacks and surprises how a great director make it slip away. Handling a tough situation, following the instinct and the facing outcome of the final result is what the movie to say in a one liner. Obviously, roles were perfectly distributed to the respective cast by the filmmakers and they had given their best as well. So no blame game for the movie's fall in that matter. In my perception it was the dull moments in the movie that acquire more than the best parts. When it was overhauled to build the story and develop characters, never showed signs of recovery. As I am a movie maniac, after seeing a movie, I always think of a sequel to follow only if it was a good one, or I pray for no sequel if it was terrible. I thought the same about this movie as well, after seeing the way it ended. I am now curious what if a sequel makes the way and impacts better than this. Because in the history, so many sequels had excelled than the previous movies. Whatever, I respect this film, not because of the director or actors, but like everyone says it should have been little better in a few areas, that's all. A movie fanatic sees the effort and appreciate it even it was not that good, but a critic sees only flaws and criticise as usual. 6/10
