Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Michael A. Smith
One of the best war movies, mixed with one of the best action movies, mixed with one of Alex Guinness' best performances mixed with a killer score? One of the greats.
| Original Score: 5/5
Did Lean ever make a bad film?
A spellbinding character study wrapped in a great adventure story.
The big screen is the place to see this widescreen epic.
This intelligent and exciting WWII tale, masterfully helmed by Lean (at the start of his 'epic' period), features a splendid performance from Guinness.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
In my opinion, it is one of the two best films to emerge from a very strong decade of cinema.
| Original Score: 4/4
Brilliant is the word, and no other, to describe the quality of skills that have gone into the making of this picture.
| Original Score: 5/5
somehow elevates what begins as a...tiresomely chest-beating Patriotism picture into one of the most gripping and unsimplified statements the cinema has ever made about war.
| Original Score: A-
One of the most rousing and inspiring war films, this is also a psychological battle of wills. The intensity between Hayakawa and Guinness is captivating.
| Original Score: 3/4
World War II classic receives brilliant presentation and provides fascinating perspective on DVD.
Guinness is wonderful; one of the all-time greats. You can watch it a hundred times and it stills holds the same fascination and impact as the first viewing.
Lean achieves a fine balance of creating complex characters from a fine cast, while keeping the pace up throughout this long movie.
Hitler has only got one ball! Goering has two but very small
| Original Score: A
One of the best anti-war films ever made.
| Original Score: 9/10
A tense, terrifying, absolutely riveting film about the ironies of war and the deadly psychological games enemy soldiers play with each other.
The film has great themes ... fascinating characters expertly acted, a compelling plot and brilliant direction by one of the masters of the epic, David Lean.
| Original Score: 94/100
The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), the memorable, epic World War II adventure/action, anti-war drama, was the first of director David Lean's major
...stirring drama in a timeless setting.
| Original Score: 10/10
Most war movies are either for or against their wars. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) is one of the few that focuses not on larger rights and wrongs but on individuals.
