"I Care a Lot" is an exciting movie that tells the story of two young lovers who get wind up together. A shady guardian gets into hot water when she attempts to bilk an innocent girl who has close ties to a notorious crime boss. She is able to escape only to get herself kidnapped by the boss' goons. The movie then chronicles their adventures until they are reunited and ready to return to the normal lives of normal people. There is a lot that this movie is able to convey through its fast-paced plot and interesting characters.
The movie starts out with the guardian's daughter (Monique Smalls) working at a very prestigious job in Washington D.C. She is unaware that her boyfriend, played by Jason Statham, is also in charge of security at the White House. In fact, he works for the government as a private contractor. One day, his girlfriend walks out of a hotel he is staying in and is murdered by terrorists. He then flees the country, taking her passport and visa. With the help of an American friend, Matt Damon's character decides to visit his old college girlfriend in India, hoping to catch a break up between him and Monique.
We then get introduced to another major player in the movie who is played by Russell Brand. Russell's character is the President of the United States of America. He has been away from the country for quite some time now and has been desperately trying to get people to read his new book. One day, his old college girlfriend shows up at his office to deliver a letter from Jason Statham's character and he invites him to his new country.
The movie then cuts to a few months later where we see President Obama attending a dinner on the South Lawn in Washington D.C. While he is eating, someone tries to shoot him with a gun-shooter which goes off when the President trips over. This then prompts the other members of the committee to rush in to help. They all end up saving the President.
In the end, it turns out that Jason Statham did in fact write the novel, "I, Counting", based on the life of then President George W. Bush. It's a biopic about the First Lady and President Bush as well as their relationship during and after the Gulf War. The movie itself isn't too terrible. The acting is solid, the storyline is entertaining and the movie did have some very good one-liners. Overall, it was a pretty good movie that didn't get picked up by mainstream audiences.
