The life of Nick Saks is an unceasing whirl in the toilet, which does not wash off. Once Nick left his family, and now he's going to christmas in bar, sucking the horse's urine from the plastic cup. Once Nick was a legendary superhero cop , and now became a quick killer. AND that's when the swill slowly flows down into stomach, and the head climbs thoughts to finish with this and put a bullet in head on horizon appears flying violet unicorn by named Happy. is he asks Nick to help save from the kidnapper of his only friend, the little girl Haley. Which, in combination, is the daughter of the protagonist, whom he never saw.
That's it, the bottom of the name Nick Saks - Vices, murders, cheap alcohol, and now also problems with head. But you know what? Perhaps, this is the most reckless and extravagant bottom in history of mankind. Yes, there is a place for Gorky's reflection, but It is more likely to dilute trash and fumes. The series is not at all about sadness. is he about friendship. Let and from a fictional unicorn. is he about family and Christmas. AND about crowds of assholes, which need to be weeded out on ways to reunification with family. AND all this game looks as if Quentin Tarantino was given a Christmas sequel " Who Framed Roger Rabbit " .
" Happy " - this is an excellent badi-moivi
Union superhero-zabuldygy and a fictional unicorn Is one of the the brightest and most memorable duets in history of cinema. The partners are chosen to perfectly shade each other. This drunk former cop (and A little superhero) with doubtful moral values. AND my dearest flying unicorn, who, though looks at the world through the eyes of a child (than Sachs constantly gets), but ready for great deeds for the sake of friends.
By all the laws of drama, good characters must develop. Through the complexity of overcoming yourself and through suffering to go to a new level of development. Without this, they will be boring, like two cacti on window sill. AND from this in " Happy " full order. Naive Horse and rough as a brick the former cop nick go from stage " what the hell are we we sit in one boat " and constant wrangling, until willingness to put your back behind comrade. Although, Sachs before The latter pretends not to endure can be happy and always with he argues, he all same crosses over himself and tries not to be such an asshole.
If you consider that the bothersome unicorn is played by Patton Oswald (this is American, American Growth), to understand Sachs' feelings is not at all complicated. AND all these disputes, mutual podkoly and curiosities were would be a completely banal story about two friends, if would not one but. Happy no sees no one except Nick. AND This is a bottomless well for jokes about schizophrenia and funny situations.
Imagine how unseen for all Happy helps Saks to win in poker money (and a bonus hill of cocaine) bad guys. A Here the unicorn acts as an interpreter between Nick and waitress in Chinese restaurant. A here he is first time in house "where women rub against pole " , after which Nick tries to explain to the naive animal the essence of a striptease base . The situation adds color to the fact that Sachs himself is at first sure that he came down with mind.
TO the Saxon. Christopher Meloni, who plays Nick, walks confidently the path of David Harbor, the sheriff of " Very strange cases. " It's such same old-school brutal man, whom no one used to knew, but now I want to see him in every second militant.
This is a frivolous and hilarious trash in the best traditions of Tarantino, Rodriguez and Ritchie
AT Each series has at least one (and more often 2 - 3, and then and 4) peak moment, when the situation reaches absurdity, and at the director is lit by a spark of genius. Here are just some of the them:
- Meeting of the support group of abandoned fictitious friends, whose owners grew up
- The fight with ninjas on axes for a Christmas song in performance of Frank Sinatra.
- Sax's reflections on abandoned family represented in the talk show " let them talk " . FROM clarification of relations and torn off hair.
- The death of the character is arranged in An old-fashioned synthpop clip.
- The torture of one fictional character by another. When a unicorn with knife threatens knitted glove - this is sur- itself. But When it is furnished as a reference to famous scene of torturing a cop from " Mad Dogs " - it's pure delight.
- Sachs, leaves from ambush, tying to his back and belly of two hostages
- Mafia boss sister participates in reality show in spirit of " Secular lionesses from Jersey. " The whole series for she is dragged by a film crew that turns absurdity of any dramatic scene.
Describe the style of the film is quite difficult. AT the plot is all mixed up - kidnapping of children, maniac-santa , Italian mafia, disassembly with yakuza and a lot of mysticism that is still unclear. AND it's like riding a a roller coaster, where a yawn is accepted a priori. But if suddenly wanted, then From around the corner, the script writer jumps out and Lupit dusty bag. The game must continue! For comparison, the " Preacher " not less crazy comic book, skidding already on third series. Happy the same boldly bumps releasing a cigarette from teeth.
This is an excellent family movie
A that's the time to be surprised. Yes, "Happy" - this is a good family film. is he is imbued with the spirit of Christmas, and The whole story revolves around father's reunion with abandoned by him family. AND about friend he acquires ways. Throw out of mafia, Santo-oligophrenia , mysterious " sunbeam " and get that whether a family drama, then whether the family comedy about Christmas miracles, which sometimes happen.
At the same time, " Happy " is far from being is ideal and not is devoid of shortcomings. For example, an open ending, leaves a lot of questions, than strongly annoying. For example, what happened to Mikey? From what was the password for which all chased? How is Zhukov? Although, the logic of the creators is clear - after the success of the first series, " Happy " immediately also extended by second season, so cut the ropes in both The original comic strip was would be foolish. It is clear and what viewers do wanted additives.
It is not clear what is different. How " Happy " even got to screens and took off? This is a completely adventurous project, which was to die for another approval stage. is he written on little known black comic book from slightly prickiblenny Scotsman Grant Morrison, who in " Happy " as if rested from " Batman " and " Fantastic Four " , which he long wrote. He was shot by the director of " Adrenaline " , which after this very " Adrenaline " is not took absolutely nothing good. A Christopher Meloni, who used to star in mostly in second-rate series, believed so much in project that invested in him a little personal funds and made a co-producer. AND anneals it on all nested before the last penny.
All this booth has The SyFy channel, which specializes mainly in mid-budget fiction series and sometimes he runs into teenage fantasy. Such adventures almost always fail. But if not, then we we get something extremely original. So if you love good jokes, chernukha, bright style, " action " and history that does not unravel in the middle of the season, then give the " Happy " chance. AND not pay attention that he is not in the ratings of the expected series of 2018. is he there will be. But already in ranking the best TV series of the year.
