Home Alone 3 (DVD)
Advantages: Good story line that is full of excitement.
Disadvantages: Not as good as the rpevious films in the series.
Home Alone 3 is the third installment of the Home Alone series and I couldn't wait to watch this film. It was originally released on DVD in Novemember 2006 which makes it relatively new. I couldn't help but feel slightly disappointed however with the overall quality of the movie. Granted I did have very high expectations from the film but I just didn't think it was as good. This was partly because of the actors such as Alex D. Linz and Olek Krupa who were good but they weren't nearly as good as the actors in the previous series. I did however like the story line and it was very funny at times but as I said, the overall quality of the production was not quite as good.
Home Alone 3 is a movie about a boy named Alex who stays at home because he feels sick. Four terrorists are sent on a mission to attain a microchip that can be used to activate a missile. They manage to get the microchip and end up putting it on a remote control car. However, the baggae gets mixed up and Alex gets this toy car and he eventually relises the situation and attempts to set various traps to keep these terrorists out of his house. I really did like how the film had a different story line to the original but kept the same concept. I did find it exciting to watch also so on that front I would recommend it.
I did very much enjoy some parts of the film however, and I would still recommend this film to any Home Alone fans. Although I will just warn you that I felt it was a dissapointment and an antimclimax when comapred with the previous films. The film is available for even less than £4 however on Amazon so you cannot really go wrong with at least trying it. I did like the soundtrack though and I have spoken to many people who really enjoyed it so it is well worth watching for some home entertainment.
Summary: It is a good film still just not as good as the expectations.
