Snake Eyes is worth watching
Indeed 2021 was really not been that bad as most of the movies I get to watch were released this year and that makes it more interesting. Most of the movies have had the opportunity to review we're released this year and I must confess that the movie industry is doing a great job in making our time watching this movie worthwhile.
Snake Eyes was released on 23 July 2021, directed by Robert Schwentke and the lead artist are Henry Golding (Snake Eyes); Andrew Koji; Úrsula Corberó; Samara Weaving; Haruka Abe; Takehiro Hira; Iko Uwais. Snake Eyes, is a 2021 American superhero film released in the United State.
ABOUT THE MOVIE
The movie starts with a young boy who saw the murder of his father and burning down of the place he once called home by an unknown man. He left home that night for safety with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart.
Years later, he grew into a handsome young man and decided to conceal his identity by calling himself Snake Eyes, and his fuel to avenge his father's death made him become a talented and deadly martial arts fighter.
He saves the life of an ancient Japanese clan called the Arashikage heir apparent from being killed by his jealous and wicked cousin who was after the throne and the clan's most sacred treasure, the "Jewel of the Sun", which has magical powers.
The heir apparent feels he owes Snake Eyes his life for saving him without knowing that Snake Eyes was actually sent by his cousin to steal the sacred jewel stored far away from the eyes of many and decides to take it to his home with him.
The clan welcomes him and the heir apparent begs that Snake Eyes be initiated as a member of his ninja dojo in Japan by the words of the heir even though no one trusted Snake Eyes because he had no history, they decided to teach him the ways of the ninja warrior while also providing him something he never had after his father's death been home with a condition that Snake Eyes undergo three trials to determine if he is worthy to join them.
He passes the first two trials with his talents but fails the third and final trial which requires the test of his spirit by the sacred anacondas who can sense if one is truly pure of heart or has bad intentions to hurt the clan and not abide by their laws.
The snakes are always caged in a far way pit, and when someone is dropped inside the pit, they come out and either attacks whoever has bad intentions or secrets or leaves of they perceive that the person is with a pure heart.
Snake Eyes has not been entirely honest and manages to hide the true reason he is there and so the snakes attack him, but he was saved from being killed and as a result, he was expelled by the clan leader.
He comes back to steal the sacred Jewel without the knowledge of anyone and gives it to the one who sent him but later regretted his action and decided to inform the clan about his deed. He joins allies with them and stops their cousin from destroying the clan and taking over the throne.
They successfully got the sacred jewel and returns it to the safe place while Snake seized the opportunity to kill their bad cousin by throwing him into the pit filled with anaconda. The snakes devour him upon sensing his evil spirit and Snake Eyes returns to the clan, where he finds out the truth about his father and why he was murdered by those men.
The movie is indeed interesting and got a lot of suspense-filled scenes mostly the scene that showed that Snake Eyes was in alliance with the heir apparent cousin to get the jewel just to avenge his father's death while he presented himself as a true friend to the heir apparent and the leaders of the clan.
You should watch this movie if you haven't because it's totally worth the hype and very entertaining but the ending wasn't satisfying. Just maybe, it could mean the movie has another season that would be showing us what happened to the heir apparent who got expelled from the clan and the throne because he went against the oath taken by trying to killing his cousin with the sacred jewel and the fight between him and Snake Eyes as he promised to kill Snake Eyes any time their path crossed while leaving the clan because of his betrayal and making him lose the throne he has fought over years to secure.
Well, I don't mind if they got a second season because I think it deserves it.
