Excellent thriller with Caine in fine form (despite his stated dislike of the film). Director Michael Ritchie caught a lot of grief for the uneven quality and extreme tonal shifts, but this is a unique movie that defies logic. Scary and repulsive and worth a view.
One of Gibson's best movies, dark and comic, loaded with over-the-top violence, and a terrific supporting performance from Gregg Henry. Studio version is slightly less entertaining than the director's cut, but it doesn't really change the tone of the film. Top of the line cast makes this a must see for Gibson fans, but not for the squeamish.
A long, interminable bore of a movie, complete with haphazard acting and scenes that run on and then just end. Beatty obviously had affection for his subject, but the film's extreme length and lack of pace, or even a pulse, makes it rough viewing. The only movie I ever walked out on in a theater, I had to view the DVD years later to finish watching it. It's the perfect cure for insomnia.
If you ever thought watching CGI apes hopping around for over 2 hours was fun, think again. Overlong, with a familiar plot that doesn't offer much except "can't we all just get along?". The visual effects aren't convincing enough, as you don't believe for a minute that the computer apes are in the same space as the humans, and the live actors are wasted. Poor Kirk Acevedo and Gary Oldman play roles they should be able to do in their sleep by now and Keri Russell has a thankless part that seems tacked on. Watching paint dry for 130 minutes would be more productive.
Bronson is in fine physical form in this Euro thriller that features some good action, uneven acting, and large plot holes. If you like the star, then this movie is an OK time-waster. Ullmann, in an attempt to stretch to more commercial cinema looks constipated throughout and Mason's phoney southern accent is a distraction.
