Critic Review - EmanuelLevy.Com

One of the weakest films to ever win the Best Picture Oscar, Mel Gibson's wannabe historical saga is handsome to look at but shallow and ultra-violent.

Oh, what a shock! It's Hitler's brother again. You didn't even enjoy Gandhi so how could you understand anything of this? Idiot...

I am really really sorry you Mr. Levy. This is your opinion anyway. But I think you should think over it a bit further.

I've never seen a mustache like that before. It's a perfect rectangle. You might want to transplant some of that mustache hair to your scalp, then you may look kinda normal....kinda.

LOL at saying Levy doesn't have taste. That is exactly why he agrees with the tomatometer almost 90% of the time.

C'mon that doesnt mean anything. He's still a moron. And as for yourself, prepare for itemized insults....

a. Your also a moron just for defending this guy.
b. He may agree with 90% of the meter, but 99% of this page agrees that he's a douche, so we're winning.
c. To defend him, you actually looked up the statistics of how often he agrees with the meter? You're a dweeb.

Bedram Bararpour

Yeah, and 99% of people on this page are morons.

a) And you are a moron for taking this review personally. And also for not knowing the difference between "you're" and "your."

b) Winning what? 99% of people that commented on this page are morons, that have no taste themselves, like commish_guy.

c) Really? A dweeb? The best you can come up with? And all you do is just click the name of the critic and on their page it shows the statistics of how often they agree with the tomatometer. It's not that hard, and it took less than 2 seconds.

And if Levy is a moron, then wtf are you? You liked Saw V, you gave a 100% to Amityville Horror (2005 version), you gave 100% to the horrible movie Freddie Got Fingered, you gave 90% to Corky Romano (horrible movie as well), and you are saying Levy is the moron? Please.

Levy is a great critic and he hit the nail right on the head.

Levy is a good critic, but I disagree with him on this one.

Jeez guys, hes entitled to his own opinions. No need to jump all over him like the blood sucking ticks you act like.

I too disagree with the opinion, but the man is allowed his freedom to write any review he desires, so long as his reasons are at least half credible.

what you've just written is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever read. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on RT is now dumber for having read to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

If you didn't think this movie was awesome, then you are a pompous !@#$ing retard. Get off your high horse

I don't know anything about this guy's other opinions with regards to movies, and to be honest this was a bad review whatever his opinion, simply because it was extremely short and offered almost no backing or elaboration. However, to say that this one of the weaker historical epics ever to win best picture is spot-on. It seems as though any big historical epic in the past fifteen years that is even a little bit better than Troy or 300 wins best picture. Gladiator was another example of a big but intellectually barren blockbuster to be overpraised. On the box of this movie it said it was the best historical epic since Lawrence of Arabia. But think about the difference in quality! The dialogue is shitty, the violence is so overly gruesome it's almost farcical at times! It is obvious that a lot of work went into this however, and the cinematography and scale of the battle sequences and sets is impressive. But the narrative itself as well as the performances therein were base and unimpressive.

Intellectually barren? Someone needs to ride a horse into your bedroom and smash you with a mace to show you the value of ACTION
