Daldry's mawkish -- at times unbearable -- adaptation quickly renders any poignancy or audience subjectivity obsolete.
August 31, 2018
Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close just doesn't seen to have any point, and is sentimental and banal as well as very, very long.
May 21, 2018
This is a muzzled beast of an epic, all its sharp, strange edges blunted, its askew angles righted.
August 30, 2017
Good intentions don't always translate into great movies.
August 11, 2014
Dull and lifeless.
May 26, 2013
It's a toss-up as to which is more annoying: the scatter-shot screenplay by Eric Roth or the increasingly grating lead performance by newcomer Thomas Horn.

Oskar expounds to excess, a problem that becomes worse as time drags on and is particularly excruciating during the one-way verbal dialogues with Von Sydow
March 14, 2013
An irritating 130-minute dripathon.

This adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer's 9/11 novel is long, shallow and unconcealed in its efforts to make you cry.

As Oskar opines about his father's casket: "It's just an empty box". The same charge the film's guilty of.

Probably one of the most exploitative and heavy handed films concerning 9/11 I've ever seen.

...threatens to make the momentous trite.

When it was finally over, I found myself not just disappointed, but a little annoyed. Frankly, it seems more than a little like a cheat.

Es uno de esos raros ejemplos en que el original literario es visualmente mucho ms rico que su versin cinematogrfica. Lo mejor es su protagonista, el increble Thomas Horn.

What seemed a gimmicky device on the page feels even more awkwardly whimsical and implausible on screen
March 4, 2012
Feels like a Very Special Episode of a hopelessly lightweight kids TV show, misguidedly attempting to have its say on an issue it can barely comprehend, let alone interpret.

Its louder is better approach is just too much. The tantrums, the tears, the bloody tambourine the main character shakes at every given moment. It all culminates into a dizzying mesh of over the top sentiment.
February 19, 2012
By the end of the movie you feel like throwing Oskar's tambourine in the East River and sending him off to swap written messages in silence with his grandfather.
February 17, 2012
The situation is wrenching in too many ways at once. You sit there, first cringing, then fighting back, out of primitive self-respect.
