Today I am going to give a movie review of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. This is the story of a young man named Oskar whose dad died on 9-11. Oskar was close to his dad, and his dad was always planning "adventures" for him to take which involved mysteries that he had to solve. When Oskar found a key in his dad's closet, he set out to search for the lock that the key would fit. He thought of it as a last "adventure" from his dad. The movie is about all the people he met along the way and his experiences. Personally, this movie bothered me because Oskar was only 9 years old, and this dog does not think a 9 year old should be going all over New York City by himself. He was accompanied by an adult later on, but in the beginning of the search, he was alone. I can't imagine a responsible parent allowing a 9 year old to take off and travel all over such a large city by himself. Whenever there is a tragedy like 9-11-or even just the loss of someone naturally, there will always be a sense of loss for the people involved. It is sad that so many people were left with losses after 9-11, and those losses will never be forgotten by those left behind. My doggy rating system gives it a tail wag, but that is it. I give this movie a 4 out of 10 with 10 being the best and 1 being the worst on the human scale. I would have rated it better had the boy been 15 or 16, but a 9 year old is just too young to be out on his own in the city so it made the movie very unbelievable for me.
