Many people have told me that "The Princess Bride" was perfect, the best film of all time, and a classic. Did it live up to the hype? For me, it did not. On a technical basis, it could have been improved. One of the biggest problems I had with this film was the pacing. By that I mean how elaborate it was. When Buttercup and Wesley were reunited, we get to see more of their relationship, but that quickly ends and kinds of sabotages the romance which is not good since this is kind of a romance film. The next problem I had with the movie was the consistency of tone. At one point of the movie, it was very kid-friendly, then towards the end, it got bloody. I questioned if I was still watching the same movie and this problem was one of my biggest issues with the movie Hook. I might be coming off as a hater of "The Princess Bride", but I assure you I don't hate this movie. I really enjoyed the comedy, the movie had some solid performances and characters, the movie had a cool story of rescuing and the sword-fights were choreographed really well. I'll give "The Princess Bride" a 6.5/10. I was underwhelmed by this movie and I was hoping to give the movie an 10/10. This kind of thing happens from time to time. I recommend "The Princess Bride" to children mostly.
