Overhyped garbage. Low-life white-trash small theatre types ("off-broadway") live alcohol or drug-addled lives, cursing throughout, with some pretentious "pseudo-mystical" meaning to it. The midlife title character devolves into schizophrenia then tries, and finally succeeds, in committing suicide.Blecch. Michael Keaton just seems like an old washed out actor, and he used to be one of my favourites. Blecch.
I fell asleep during most of the movie. Once you've seen Sweeney Todd, the rest of Sondheim is boring and repetitive. This is an all Los Angeles cast and it shows. Terrible, bland acting, except for Johnny Depp who plays his stereotypical (but always great) role. Only one scene did I really like: Meryl Streep's final scene as the witch, which is a wonderfuly analogy to the oil industry's "magic beans" and global warming. The rest of the movie feels flat and was trite and stupid. This is the first movie I've seen in a theatre in years and I felt I wasted my money. Don't waste yours.
Verrry boring and one-dimensional. I fell asleep during it. Rather than being about Lincoln, it was about passage of the 13th Amendment. It was also written as if Reagan or Bush were president and the politics were of their era, not Lincoln's. Further, Lincoln was an educated lawyer, yet the language was the erroneous English of the early 21st century, not the accurate American English of that era. The poor scriptwriting bothered me. There are better biopgraphies of Lincoln.This seemed forced.
What? I fell asleep in this movie. This is for kids who have never seen the original POTA series. Too much pointless action and a bit of a mindless plot with pretentious characters and senseless "moral positions." However, since I live in Sausalito (the northern side of the Golden Gate bridge), I love the idea that the Apes took over Marin County. One of the houseboats even has a statue of an ape on the deck. Ha!
I don't get the high ratings at all. This movie is dull, dull, dull and the main character is a weird creep. Sure, the girl is beautiful, but some goofy old Arab guy spending an entire movie perving on a cute girl is not very interesting. The ratings on this one are wayyyy lopsided.
Yawn. I'd rather watch Iron Man 2 again than this. At least there were some fun characters in Iron Man 1 & 2...
WTF? Someone must be getting kickbacks to rate this highly. It is idiotic. Much of it is a barely disguised rip-off of The Incredibles, but mind-numbingly dumbed down and annoying. It's as as bad as you might expect from the title alone. Avoid it like the plague. Barbie movies are much better than this drivel.
This is film-student "master" bation. This is an intentionally obtuse, meandering mess. It has a titillating sex theme, an almost murder mystery, and senseless violence at the end. It is is well-costumed and has very high-end English dialogue, but is otherwise a somewhat contrived "art showpiece" that really shouldn't be a movie. Highly over-rated. I'm sure your more pretentious "film-buff" friends will pretend to love it.
The life of a movie critic is always intense! I have seen this movie 150 times. I never tire of it.
Wow, is this dated. Pretty hollow and empty by the end of the movie. It started out promising, but then faltered. Want a real good modern mystery? See The Illusionist with Ed Norton instead. Let this old movie stay buried in its coffin.
This comes across as a Mexican housewife takes to painting. Yawn. If you don't have close contact with Mexican culture it might be entertaining, but living in Southern California the movie is a series of very trite stereotypes to me. Beware the rave reviews that come just because it's a Mexican-centric film and because of the stellar cast. I did not find it very entertaining.
My 14-year-old girl liked it. Though I enjoyed the first Hunger Games (not the second), this movie, in contrast, was painful to watch. A barely sketched-out juvenile SF plot, drawn from rather "religious" ideas, actually. There is, of course, that girl-centric teenage angst of "fitting in" -- in spades. Blecch. I spent more time on my cellphone than watching the movie.
A much better predecessor is The Acid House, in which Billy Connolly has one of the best bits as the Devil. This one is just an overrated B-movie about deadend nobody junkies. Nothing worthwhile about this movie at all.
This has to be one of the dullest movies I have ever seen. Who the heck are the critics who like this? Both the main characters are devoid of personality, interesting lives, or interesting things to say, and, well, the woman is just plain irritating. That there are a few paintings in the background does not elevate the movie. As another reviewer said, going to your own local museum would be worlds more fascinating than this piece of depressing drivel.
While the special effects are great, this is a one-thought movie. There is no plot -- just frantically floating through space after an explosion. Want a plot? Go see Apollo 13 again.
The entire movie is in the last 6 - 10 minutes. Magic arrow destroys the hunger games and the revolution comes in to save her. Yawn. The rest of the time is running through a jungle. Oh brother. This is nothing like the first one. Give it a miss.
