I don't understand the vitriol of the reviews for this movie. It seems everyone was expecting something from this movie because of the actors involved. I learned many movies ago to watch a movie for the story, regardless of who is in it. I rented this movie because the story sounded interesting. I'm not a big fan of either of the main actors, but with so few choices of worthwhile movies released this year I'm running out of recently released movies I'm willing to invest my time in. Admission was entertaining, interesting and held my attention throughout. Lily Tomlin was a pleasant surprise, and the young man playing Nelson, Travaris Spears, was very good. It's a shame that audience reviewers become "critics" and forget to enjoy the movie experience and need to stop hating perfectly good films. Admission is unlikely to win any awards, and certainly could have been better if not so rushed at only 107 minutes, but it is a thoroughly enjoyable movie and one I recommend to anyone.
Did not enjoy it. Went home and watched the original again to confirm it. Some reviewers talk about humor but I didn't see any. I admit im not a big fan of torture films or gorfests, but I've always loved the Evil Dead series. I agree with several others that this be 'another' Evil Dead, not a remake. I'm not suggesting the movie was bad, though. I just didn't enjoy it. The movie was very well made, the gore was pretty much believable, and the actors were no worse than in the original. Jane Levy was the stand out for me. She had such an innocent face when she wanted to, and was clearly the "pretty one". As a deadite, she was sincerely creepy, more so than makeup alone could create. I just wish they had Bruce do a cameo. Like if they stopped at gas station called S-Mart for supplies that was run by Ash. Or even heard him as a DJ on the radio. I wouldn't tell anyone they shouldn't see this movie, It is definitely an experience!
