Audience Reviews for Match Point

  • Jun 09, 2013
    A dour and macabre film, Match Point is a monotonous suspense thriller from Woody Allen. The story follows a country club tennis instructor who marries into a wealth family, but his infidelity soon jeopardizes everything that he's worked for. Featuring an impressive cast that includes Scarlett Johansson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Matthew Goode, and Emily Mortimer, the performances are quite good. However, the script fails them: it doesn't maintain any suspense and the characters quickly lose their interest. Match Point is an especially weak film that lacks originality and is poorly executed.

    Fascinating take on Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment where Woody Allen... who am I kidding... Scarlett Johansson. That is all.

    To me, "Match Point" defines the word 'subtle.' Allen's screenplay and direction are incredibly low-key and keep the film slowly moving until it hits an explosive finale that's equal parts thriller and dark comedy. Scarlett Johansson is electrifying in her femme fatale role and Jonathan Rhys Meyers provides a solid, if understated performance. "Match Point" isn't as exciting as you might expect, and for a thriller, it takes a heck of a lot of patience to sit through, but when it gets going, boy does it get going.

    Quite easilly Woody Allen's best film of the 2000's, full of questions about the nature of luck as well love vs lust.
