Not any good? Perhaps only suited for kids? Because I cant imagine any adult watching this.

The bad: this movie is completely silly. Tom Hanks is loosing it lately, with many of his movies making less and less at the box office. Not only is this movie silly, it is quite boring to watch as well, with no drama to speak of. No jokes either.

More bad: the special effects look cheap. The whole direction is mediocre.

The story; Tom Hanks travels around with a dog and a (not funny) silly robot.

Robinson Crusoe embedded in an en vogue (post)apocalyptic scenario, spiced up with a dog (how cute, dogs work always), and Number 5 (Short Circuit, 1986). The only thing I miss is E. T. ;) Finch is not a bad movie but it is one of those ueber-generic movies they produce en mass these days. Everything we get we already got served in many other movies, maybe in another context, maybe not, nothing is really new, besides maybe the blend and dose of the ingredients well known. Tom Hanks is solid, the production pro, the humor sometimes forced, and Jeff, the robot is the equivalent of mini Yoda. In a sequel Jeff maybe will get the job of WALL·E done, and clean up the mess mankind left. Verdict: all in all okay but nothing memorable. Movies like The Omega Man or I am Legend are the better ones. The movie business really needs some talented writers and not those hired copycats who depend on formulas and really have not a tiny drop of own creativity at dispose.

Basically it's a two hour road trip story about taking care of a dog. I get that both writers are newbs, but at least give us some real drama, thrills and suspense. There was only one part things seemed like they were going to get exciting, but let's just hide under a bridge to avoid all the excitement instead. The story was dull, unoriginal, and lacked any real plot.

I've never been so disappointed in the lost potential from an underused conceptual story, especially with the 115 runtime and amazing casting. This may as well been a short film. And had Hanks not been cast, this just wouldn't of worked and would've flopped. Hanks, and his dynamic with Caleb Landry Jones as Jeff were the only reason I finished the film, although Jeff was unconvincing and a lame and wimpy excuse for a robot.

The directing, cinematography, sets and visuals were excellent, as was the old-school tunes soundtrack. But even all of that will leave you disappointed and wanting more. Even my dog had better ideas to add into this film. It's a very generous 7/10 from me. Apple should stick to computers and phones.

Originally known as BIOS before it was acquired by Apple TV+ for a prominent streaming release, Finch is yet further proof of Tom Hanks innate ability to carry a film as the sole human presence (here accompanied by a dog and a robot, not a volleyball) in what amounts to a genuinely heartfelt and pleasant journey in a post-apocalyptic America.

Directed by British filmmaker Miguel Sapochnik, who established himself for the big time with his direction of hugely popular Game of Thrones episodes such as Hardhome and Battle of the Bastards, Finch may appear on paper to be a big-scale film ripe for action and spectacle but in a nice turn of events, Sapochnik is content to keep things intimate and humanly focused as Finch forgoes easy wins in the entertainment stake to instead keep the focus on Hank's ill inventor and apocalypse survivor Finch Weinberg as he travels the barren lands with his beloved dog Goodyear and his newly born robot protector Jeff (voiced by Caleb Landry Jones).

What transpires in Finch will be more than familiar to anyone that's ever partaken in an odd couple road-trip movie and one that deals with A. I learning what it means to be human but that doesn't mean the familiarity found in Finch and the comfort food it offers to us as viewers doesn't make it any less enjoyable and it's refreshing to see such a high profile film with this big of a scale happy and comfortable too allow its human moments to shine brighter than anything else that could've easily have been the focus.

As is always the case with one of the most beloved performers in Hollywood and an actor that everyone would seemingly love to call their uncle/friend, Hanks doesn't rework any of his previous performance repertoire to bring Finch too life but whether his interacting with Goodyear, teaching Jeff important life lessons (nothing more important than how to care for a canine) or in one moving scene recounting his past experiences in the violent and confronting new world, Hanks is as reliable as ever as a man doing his best in trying circumstances as he comes to terms with his own mortality and what makes a life worth living.

Throughout the films runtime Sapochnik embraces the staples of the sub-genre his working in, allowing the common components that have become prevalent in these type of films to make Finch a film that gives an experience akin to a big old bear hug, the type of experience we can all use a little bit more of and one that makes Finch an accessible and joyful film that never tries to become anything more than it needed to be.

Final Say -

Lead by a typically strong Tom Hanks performance and its embracing of what type of film it is, Finch is a touching tale about mismatched souls trying their best to survive in a world that has lost sight of what it once was.

3 out of 5 stars.

Finch is a fair science fiction post apocalypse film which gives Tom Hanks an outstanding performance. And an emotional connection with the characters. The story is flat out thin and a direction that gets a bit boring with this long road trip journey.

Tom Hanks did great. The story was flat out thin. Besides Tom Hanks. His dog. And a his made robot going on a road trip across an apocalyptic wasteland after the solar flare has destroyed everything and causing unpredictable storms.

"Finch" is a Drama - Sci-Fi movie in which we watch a man trying to survive on a post-apocalyptic Earth. He also builds a robot to help his beloved dog but it starts to learn more about humans and life in general.

I enjoyed this movie because it had a nice and beautiful plot and the characters evolved very well through time. The direction which was made by Miguel Sapochnik was very good and he kept a little bit of mystery in his movie, something that made it even more interesting. The interpretation of Tom Hanks who played as Finch was absolutely amazing and he made this movie even better. In conclusion, I have to say that "Finch" is a nice movie and I strongly recommend everyone to watch it because it presents very well how fast and unpredictable everything can change on our planet and how people can be affected by it.
