Audience Reviews for Tenderness

  • Mar 26, 2013
    One of the worst performances by Crowe. Maybe this is where he got his awful portrayal of Javert in Les Miserables from. A real snoozer.

    Directed by John Polson, which stars Jon Foster, Sophie Traub, Russell Crowe, and Laura Dern.[1] The film is based on the novel of the same name by Robert Cormier.Despite the good production, the whole story is a little improbable.Boring movie , a waste of Russel Crowe's talent.

    This is a really good film. About a police detective who is possessed in making sure a young man who killed his parents spends the rest of his life in prison. At the same time when he is released from prison after turning 18, a young teenage girl falls in love with him. Trying to go straight is impossible because of the harassing detective. A surprising but predictable finish, first time I felt sorry for a killer. Excellent Job John Poison. 4 1/2 stars.

    Billed as a tense thriller, it really isnt that, and russell crowe who plays a getting past it detective is wasted, and focus more on a newly released young killer who may kill again, he picks up a young girl, crowe meanwhile thinks he will kill again, its rather dull in parts and could have been a whole lot better, theres no style and crowe could have done more
