    DVD, 2019/6/15 It is said that "it's not really a bad person," but he work some bad things, and there are still parts that seem to be just hypocrisy if it does. The hero's feelings towards the child came from his own circumstances and was impressive in that respect.

    Great collaboration between Eastwood and heir apparent(It seemed so when the film released) to the western crown Kevin Costner. Eastwood's direction is, as usual crisp and the movie dives deep in the emotions of an escaped convict and his choices in life. Every shot is meticulously thought out, as Eastwood presents what some would say a Kubrick style film. The message of life through this dark movie slows the pacing at times, but is rewarded by Costner's acting. Kevin's films have been all but impressive over the last few years, but this performance stands out in my mind as his best. The ending is a tad bit off key with the rest of the film, but I understand why it was ended that way, it just could have been rewritten a few times. This is a good film to watch if you are looking for a heartfelt story.

    it is fair and exhilarating.. A Perfect World A Perfect World is a character driven drama about a guy who is on a run along with an abducted child with whom he grows an unbreakable affection. The father figured Costner and a disciple of his Lowther, has an amazing chemistry to feed off the audience easily in its long course. Distributed in long bold varied highly pitched emotional sequences the feature flows fluently where not only the verbal sparring but the silent pitches on screen too chills down the spine. Eastwood's world in here is surprisingly calm and fair than we usually get, it doesn't rely upon gunpowders and explosives but meaningful essential morale projected through Costner's ideology and fair deeds. The background score isn't extraordinary but well crafted along with stunning cinematography and fine editing. The live locations, mesmerizing visuals and neat road trips along with stunning camera worth that elevates the momentum. The narration is elaborative with strong and exquisite script that is perfectly balanced to offer the anticipated cinematic experience especially on such large scale. Costner oozes fair trial in his portrayal with bold nuances that you may get afraid with, adored with and be affected with instantly. Eastwood is supporting decently but fails to create the anticipated magic on screen althoughh Dern deliver unflinchingly as always. Armed with a gritty script by Hancock's whose details are off the hook, Eastwood offers these characters deserved and palpable surrounding where he might be weak on few sequences but never vulnerable. The gem-like sweet and sensible conversations between Costner and Lowther, layered screenplay that enfolds eye popping revelations and Costner at the heart of it who fuels this allegory are the high points of the picture. A Perfect World is accurately titled on terms of Costner's track as it is fair and exhilarating equally.

    An excellent movie definitely one of my favourite Clint Eastwood directed movies. One of Kevin Costner's best performances playing against type.

    Great movie. The setup is certainly familiar, but thanks to quiet, beautiful and assured direction from Eastwood, a humble and perfect decision to not star in the film or take up much screen time, a brilliantly nuanced performance from Costner and very intelligent and introspective dialogue, this is an absolute winner that is one of Eastwood’s most underrated films.

    Another quality Clint Eastwood film. Road film with convict and child proves to be better than expected. Touching too.

    This is a very entertaining and simple movie that was treated a little harshly upon release. Worth a re-evaluation as it is a well directed and well acted film.
