It's sort of like 'Mystic River' done correctly.

One doesn't need to agree with the premise to appreciate Levinson's movie, which is rich in atmosphere and colorful in character.

It has really impressive and diverse cast and the story itself -- fictional or not -- can attract the viewer's attention. But Levinson wastes all that opportunity with some unfortunate directing choices.

A skillfully packaged product that is bound to satisfy.

It is well acted, cleverly directed, photographed and edited, but leaves one feeling hollow and feeling after seeing it.

Drama needs conflict, and Sleepers, at the critical juncture, doesn't deliver any.

Sleepers' ultimate sin is that it takes child sexual abuse, a subject that shouldn't be toyed with, and uses it as the impetus for a trifling revenge play.

At times the images are agonizing to behold, men in their most desperate, hateful depths preying on children. The film, exceptional on many counts, ultimately is sad in a hopeless, haunting way.

um daqueles filmes que preparam o espectador durante uma hora e meia para um clmax que nunca chega.

Idealized? You bet. That's why the loss of this world must be avenged with the same broad strokes that you'd expect from the Count of Monte Cristo.

Although Sleepers is billed as a thriller, this is not what the film is about. In the end, the film is about human relationships, and what draws us together as friends.

In craft terms alone, Sleepers is considerably better than average filmmaking, but it's difficult to take this film as seriously as it takes itself.
January 1, 2000
Worth seeing for the acting alone. Add in the starpower, Levinson's direction and some good visuals, and you've got one heck of a movie.

Despite protests from the Catholic Church (which whines about any movie that portrays priests as anything less-than-pure), Sleepers, which represents two and one-half hours of gripping entertainment, is well worth the price of admission.
