Nobel Son Reviews

Kevin Carr
7M Pictures

The writing is hopelessly obtuse, and it seems that the writer was just trying to pull a fast one on the audience.

William Goss

Smug and glib and generally apathetic as to who gets what in the end, so long as it seems clever at the time.

Rickman's a professorial womanizer who's not above turning a "C" student's grade to "A" if she looks like City Hall (Eliza Dushku) and puts out.

I have no idea how all the scenes in this movie connect. But I loved watching it unfold.

You want to see how it plays out, but it's just frustrating to wade through all the "style" to get there.

Its 110 minutes are a totally disposable piece of fluff, but perhaps more importantly, also a whole lot of fun.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Never feels like anything more than an über-nerd desperately trying to be cool -- like watching Jon Heder pretending to be James Bond.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

The screenplay starts out clever enough, but devolves into a ridiculous mishmash of incoherent subplots.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan

Director Miller employs high-octane music and the technique of high speed filming for certain sequences, which I suppose is a blessing since they shorten the running time.

Is it a thriller? Is it a heist movie? Is it a comedy?

I had high hopes for Nobel Son at the halfway point, but it ultimately really completely collapses under the weight of its clever twists.

It's one of those perfect-crime kinda flicks, wrapped up in familial angst as a black-comedy topping. That it's all rather ridiculous and overly complicates itself in the process is almost beside the point...

One Guy's Opinion

Gets more and more convoluted and preposterous as it goes along, and far less fun...a movie that, despite the title, will win no prizes.

An undignified mess that should embarrass Rickman and everyone else involved.

It's the sort of movie where calling it 'over the top' can only be taken as a compliment.

The plot twists are mostly predicated on the characters' improbably shifting loyalties, the sort of thing you can get away with only when the people in your movie are drained of all compassion.

It's one of those films stuffed with odd characters in overblown situations. Unfortunately, you don't care about any of them.
