The Chaperone (2011) Review

An ex-con who has recently got out of jail wants to do everything he can to make it up to his daughter, after he has missed so many years of her life.

I really could not resist watching this film as back when I used to watch the wrestling Triple H was always my favorite wrestler. I absolutely loved him and was totally obsessed with him! So to see Paul Levesque taking the lead in a film I just had to see it! He has gone for the approach of his own ‘Kindergarten Cop’ or ‘The Toothfairy’ like Schwarzenegger and fellow wrestler ‘The Rock’ trying to make it in the family film genre and films aimed mainly at children.

His role in this film as Ray, a man who is trying very hard to get to know his daughter again after being in prison. However, that is easier said than done when she does not want to know him at all. After the robbery crime he committed to end up in prison. He ends up going on the school field trip with the teacher, none other than Lisa Simpson’s voice actress who really takes a shine to Ray not knowing about his past.

The film is very predictable with Ray being chased by two of the men he worked with in the past, and left hours earlier to go with his daughter. We can easily guess what is going to happen next, but this by no means the worst film aimed at the family audience. We get to see some of Triple H . . . I mean Paul Levesque in fighting action which I could not help but love.

I think the film tried very much to have a heart and we are very happy to see the daughter slowly give her father a chance and wonder where that might lead to. He does try to help her in many ways, but often trying too hard at times but in the end it all pays off.

I think it will be interesting to see what Paul Levesque does next after this film . . .
