REEL DEAL: The Watch REVIEW

In a peaceful and simple suburban town of Glenview, Ohio, where everything seems to be perfect will be the target of a very big invasion that will also determine the fate of mankind. Evan  Truartwig, a manager of the local Costco manager forms a team called "The Neighboorhood Watch" to investigate the murderer of his co-worker.

Though very active in the community with putting up clubs for the residents, he has very few friends. With the establishment of "The Neighborhood watch", he met 3 interesting individuals, (Bob, Jamarcus, and Franklin) who will be part of a big discovery. 

The Watch  (orginally titled "Neighborhood Watch" with an original alien-themed, bullet-ridden poster, bearing a modified neighborhood watch sign, that was replaced as Fox sought to distance the premise from the Trayvon Martin case.)  brings together Ben Stiller Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade. With each has a very interesting comedic style, it brings a lot of interesting scenes with each dialogue.

The Watch also stars Rosemarie DeWitt as Abby Trautwig, Evan's Wife; Erin Moriarty as Chelsea Finnerty, Bob's daughter; Nicholas Braun as Jason, Chelsea's boyfriend, Will Forte as Sergeant Bressman; and Doug Jones as the main alien villain

The Watch  is distributed by 20th Century Fox Philippines and Warner Bros Philippines. Now showing in theaters.

Deliberation time kids!
