October 11, 2016
There are three things which get better with time: cheese, wine and this film. Watch it for Al Pacino and for love of all the great films from 90s !

I dont know i loved and hated al pacino's character who was equally a huge dick and scary as he was charming and stand up. How could that lady ask someone to watch her uncle and not inform them what was going on-what a biatch. She shouldnt have let some 18 year old or whatever he was watch him alone with that kind of attitude and mental instability. That kid i felt kept doing things for ppl he shouldnt have. He shouldnt have let frank talk to him or continue to threaten him. He also shouldnt have stood up for those pricks at his school who were brats to the principal. The acting in this movie was excellent and i did really like a lot of the script. Some scenes were not ok like frank threatening to kill charlie and himself with a gun, frank telling charlie he is fired and if charlie touches him he is dead, frank being rude and crass at his brothers house and choking someone, etc... I just had a problem with how the movie tries to excuse franks erratic lunatic behavior just bc he is blind and lonely and say its ok for charlie to be a doormat. Frank was violent and rude to charlie a lot. That being said prob al pacinos best performance.

Spectacular performances by the entire cast! Proof that Al Pacino is one of my favorite actors! Totally sold me on the idea that the loss of sight cannot hold you back from the pleasures of life! That dining room scene hooks me in every time! Very high recommendation!

As much as Pacino is great, the film around him is mediocre.

I just saw it and I found it to be the very best I've seen in a very long time. I was concerned about whether he would get a nomination for this amazing performance---so happy to read that he did, indeed, get it.

Al Pacino finally gets his Oscar! That's the good news. The bad news is that this isn't what he should have won for. Don't get me wrong. This is not a bad film. In fact, it's pretty good. As expected, it is Pacino that carries the picture.

Women then a distant second is a Ferrari on Pacino's importance list.

Pretty strong performance by Al Pacino and interesting enough story to follow, even though, of course, Al Pacino's tour-de-force is the main reason to watch this film.

Decent movie, even though it reeks of Oscar bait, and runs too long.

The ending may seem too formulaic and it definitely suffers from excessive lenght - but Al Pacino's mighty tour de force performance is more than enough to keep this drama solid.

Al Pacino gives a performance for the ages and got his well deserved (and only to date) Academy Award for this movie. Other than that, fairly generic.
½ May 1, 2016
Again, pretty good, but fairly cliche drama. Pacino gives an outstanding performance, even if his character is mostly unlikable. It's just a little too drawn out and bloated.

My favorite movie.
My favorite tango scene.

Once you've seen the original, this remake unveils what it really is: an insipid edulcorated Hollywood version of a beautiful and intense movie. If Pacino deserved an Oscar for it, Gassman outclassed him.
February 21, 2016
What starts off as a jarringly over-the-top performance by Al Pacino as a loud, obnoxious, blind, southern, retired colonel quickly inspires awe as the movie progresses. Obviously the veteran actor pretty much single-handedly makes this movie, and even crafts one of his most iconic roles in the process. Basically, terrific performances (then newcomer Chris O'Donnell is actually quite good here too) in this character drama elevate the often predictable script.
