The Adventures of Johnny Drille, written by Johnny Depp, is a fantastical tale of an American in Paris, attempting to find the truth about his past and his future. Set primarily in a small French-speaking section of Paris, Johnny drille finds himself tangled in the tangled lives of many people while uncovering the secret history of the French Revolution and its aftermath. The storyline, while plot-driven, isn’t overly complex or intricate. It’s more like a modern-day myth: a mixture of fact and fiction that keep the book entertaining (and sometimes outrageous).
Although this book isn’t as long as many of Depp’s previous efforts, it’s still a quick read. In fact, it’s probably one of the shortest books he’s ever written. It takes place in 1791, just after the French have gained independence from the British. Johnny, a drunkard, has run into with some trouble in the streets, getting into a fight and getting arrested for trespassing. As such, his release is suspended, and he is forced to look for work.
In searching for employment, he is assaulted and robbed in the streets. On the verge of giving up, he decides to go on an adventure in which he will confront his attackers and confront his oppressors… and discover what really happened to the infamous “Jack the Ripper.” Along the way, he encounters many other intriguing characters and examines many different aspects of life in Paris. While the storyline is loosely based on the real-life events of the French Revolution, there are many twists and turns that keep the story entertaining and suspenseful.
Johnny drille is played by Jason Lee, an Australian actor best known for his role as Alex Cross in the television series, The Mentalist. But Jason Lee’s acting skills are already known to anyone who has seen any of his Australian TV shows, including dramas and comedy programs. His performance in Babykillers was also well received. Now, he gets the chance to shine on the big screen, playing the most iconic character in all of film history…
The movie is not without flaws, though. One of the most obvious is the completely unnecessary sexual content. Even if it is portrayed in a tasteful manner, it is still very present, and does not help the otherwise well-developed plot at all. This is not a movie you can take for granted, even if it is based on a true story.
Another flaw is the total lack of character development. Drille is presented as a complete and utter idiot, which is perhaps the main reason why so many people like him so much. There are no other characters who come across as less intelligent or less than intelligent. There is also absolutely no reason for Johnny to snore. The only reason he snores is because he smokes a joint. If he was not a drug addict, he would not have been given a drugsiencrt to smoke.
Johnny Depp as the title character is one of the best actors to ever have his name attached to a film. He plays such a unique role that you cannot take any expectations seriously. All of his characters are unique, and each one is an interesting study in character. Many films try to base their stories around characters like this, but none quite match the originality and performance that you get from Johnny Depp.
Johnny Depp is simply amazing. He is an incredible actor, and he brings such depth to his roles that many people simply worship him. Anyone who sees any of his films should simply be prepared to stare in awe. He is one of those rare talents that manages to appeal to so many different audiences. From the snappy one liners that he writes for the screen, to the incredibly complex characters he plays, Johnny Depp is the real life version of an action star.
