REVIEW: The Mask

Chuck Russell directs this adaptation of the famed Dark Horse Comic book character and brings most people's inner most desires to life.

Comic superstar Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura) plays Stanley Ipkiss, a mild mannered bank clerk living in Edge City, on a particularly bad evening he happens upon a wooden mask of the norse god Loki.
After he puts it on the mask overtakes him and he becomes a hyperactive, womanizer of a playboy bursting with swag and confidence at every turn. But All Masks have a dark side and Stanley Robbed the bank while under the mask's power and now junior crime lord Dorian Tyrell wants revenge for his boys being stuck with the rap for the crime. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Calloway who has been needling at Ipkiss ever since his first encounter with The Mask makes it his mission to put Stanley behind bars forever.

Overflowing with Carrey's trademark slapstick humour this film will have you laughing from start to finish. It is no doubt one of Jim Carrey's best films of the last 30 years. It ranks right up there with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Dumb & Dumber in terms of rewatchability and the gags are so well timed even with a few nods to Tex Avery and Sally Fields thrown in for extra bling. Not To Miss.
