Michelin Star holding chef Adam Jones resurfaces after a long bought of sobriety to reenter the culinary world. Adam is determined to right the drug-and-alcohol-induced wrongs of his past and go after his third Michelin Star. But with so many bridges burned between Adam and the chefs he wants to work with, who in their right mind would give him another chance? Those who see his massive potential, that's who. But maybe it's not the other chefs that Adam has to worry about standing in his way, but rather his die-hard need for perfection that could cost him the elusive third star.
This movie was a complete blind-buy at Target, I had no idea it even existed but the cover art lead me to believe this would be a fun foodie movie. And it was, but man was it also intense! Emotions fly really high and the tension is palpable...it's almost like the movie Southpaw collided with an episode of Top Chef.
The most intense foodie movie I have seen to date - WOW!!
I absolutely love Bradley Cooper's character in this movie. I've always thought of him as a pretty one-note actor just because of his comedy performances and because I was not a fan of Silver Linings Playbook, but he showed some killer range in this movie! I also loved that this movie was so fast-paced and intense - I'm so used to foodie movies that are all about passion and love for food, which this has too. Just on a slightly crazier level. This movie was definitely an emotional roller coaster, tons of triumphs and failures and heart-wrenching moments - I was on the edge of my seat for a lot of it! Granted, because it is a modern foodie movie it can get a touch pretentious at times but... I'm not that upset about it!
I'm sorry for doubting you Bradley Cooper! It'll
never happen again!
Burnt gets a 4 OF 5 must own for fans of dramas, foodie movies, and those who love Bradley Cooper. He's stellar in this movie!
Love, love, LOOOVE this one so much!!!
