    ★★

    This is my first exposure to "Rent" in any way and I unfortunately can't say it did much for me.

Robert De Niro is terrific and Anne Hathaway is really good as well and the two of them do share some really good chemistry. The tone also balances drama, comedy and a little romance pretty nicely as well. It's nothing to special, but it's still a irresistibly charming crowd pleaser.

To get the problems out of the way first, some of the CGI effects are iffy, not every joke sticks the landing, and the first 20 or so minutes a little messy, but once this film gets going I had a total blast. Reynolds is terrific once again but Beetz really impressed me as Domino and Brolin kills it as Cable. The action sequences are…
