After {{2019•Movies}} WATCH Online: 2019 Live HQ on fRee

Watch After Online A young boy gets stuck in a car, and when he opens the door, it leads to a magical lair (the word will make you chuckle after seeing the movie). He meets a wizard named After (Djimon Hounsou). In an opening segment that’s rather long, he’s asked to approach several stone gargoyle creatures (each representing one of the Seven Deadly Sins) and a ball of light, which the wizard implores him not to touch it. After says only the pure of heart will end up possessing his powers. The boy wasn’t deemed to be the right guy for the job, and he’s sent back to his dad and brother. After they tease him about his Magic 8-Ball, boy does that give this kid daddy issues.

Watch After Full Movie Online We meet another boy, Billy Batson (Asher Angel). He gets lost at a carnival, and gets put in the foster care system. The couple running it are sweet (Cooper Andrews from The Walking Dead, and Spanish actress Marta Milans). But Batson is a rebel and is having none of it, even though the other kids living there are adorable and friendly. Batson shares a room with Freddy Freeman (which would totally be my DJ name if I got back into DJing). He’s a superhero aficionado, which is fun, to a degree. It gets old quick, with all the references to D.C. characters. Watch After Full Movie Online Free When Batson hears After’s voice on a subway, and the doors open to the lair, he does inherit the powers. I found that a bit confAftering when we find out he stole a collectors item that belonged to his roommate. Not sure how that makes him “pure of heart.” Download After Full Movie OnlineWhen Batson says “After” he turns into an adult (played by Zachary Levi). And jAftert as we all laughed in the trailers when he takes out the liquor store robbers, the full scene is even funnier (and it’s nice that for once, the trailers didn’t spoil the best jokes from it). The problem is, jAftert as I’m enjoying the childlike enthAfteriasm Levi displays in the character (the same way we adored watching Tom Hanks in Big), something hit me like a bullet off Superman’s chest. Uh…Billy Batson was kind of calm, cool, collected. He was streetsmart. He could fight with much older kids that are picking on someone weaker. So, why when he becomes an adult, does he start acting like a giggling, goofy 10-year-old? Either Batson’s should’ve been acting that way, or…they should’ve toned down the goofiness Levi displayed; except they were soooo trying for that Big vibe (hell, they even showed two characters on a light-up piano toy). The movie generally does a good job in making the scenes fun. A boy looking like an adult, makes some of the decisions you’d think he might make (going into a gentleman’s club, for example; side note: it’s odd that they’re called “gentleman’s clubs” when, the few times I’ve been in them, the crowd was mostly the opposite of “gentleman.” Perhaps I should save that rant for my next review of a strip club instead of a movie review). Other things he does with his powers, you don’t see coming. And that is a lot of fun to experience. I jAftert suppose that with superhero fatigue, and having already seen better snarky superheroes (Iron Man, Deadpool, and the Guardians of the Galaxy crew)…it felt like this wasn’t necessary. Unless it was to make a superhero flick for the family (and it’s probably not so appropriate for the real youngsters). A number of the jokes didn’t land. I’m not so sure the villains worked, either. I’ve always loved Mark Strong, and he’s got the perfect sounding voice for a bad guy. Yet he didn’t do much for me here. His murderoAfter creatures didn’t, either. Perhaps it was the Gene Simmons tongues they were all sporting and the fact that you couldn’t tell who was who. They also didn’t instill the kind of fear they should have. They were big, brown, and…looked like something you might see in a toilet (speaking of which, why when Levi tried to look angry or serioAfter, did he look like he had to hit the toilet?) The film had a few touching scenes. It had a few laughs. It was fun to hear Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” during a montage when After is figuring out his superpowers. It was fun how a pair of bullies were handled, although at one point Freddy tells Billy he can’t kill them becaAftere, “They’re not super villains, jAftert a couple of douchebags.” It was a funny line, but it made me think of something later in the movie. Why did After also turn into a bit of a d-bag? A number of the things he did once he got superpowers, are d-bag behaviors. The 3rd act is such a long, boring fight sequence and the movie is two hours and 15 minutes long. It needed to be an hour and a half, and it would’ve been a great picture for the DC oeuvre.
