The two leads are always great to watch, but the resolution was a bit more convoluted than it needed to be and the UK's check-the-box casting for the little roles was all too evident and annoying. Still, decent-sized crowd for a Wednesday matinee, which says there's still an audience for a reasonably decent story.
Awesome racing sequences with enough human interest to hold it together. Matt Damon and Christian Bale are terrific and don't get in the way of the story. CGI in the crash scenes, but not so you'd notice. I was on the edge of my seat.
Absolute treacle. In the final 10 minutes all I could think was please...make...this...stop. If you like sugar-sprinkled CGI you'll love it.
Gritty film noir. The plot was not quite as strong as I would have liked, but Edward Norton does a wonderful job in the title role.
Original! Brilliant! An absolute must-see! It does what a great film should do: it surprises you and keeps you talking about it all the way home from the theater.
Those who don't know the story would do well to look it up online first, just to have a better handle on the cast of characters. Otherwise, a great film about a little known piece of history.
A well-acted stinker. Lord of the Flies meets The Shining meets Virginia Woolf's To The Lighthouse (the weather's never good enough to get there). You don't care about the characters. There's no story arc (they're nuts from the get-go). Two hours I won't get back. I had forgotten that Willem Dafoe has a liking for weirdness. That won't happen again.
Plods. Hackneyed script. This should have been about Lady Jane Digby, which would have been a better film.
As someone who typically watches 1-2 movies in the theater each week, and hasn't seen but two in the past year because so much of what is being produced is simpleminded, I thought this film was terrific. Maybe the intercutting confused reviewers used to linear plot lines, live-action cartoons, nudity, and gratuitous violence and blood-spatter, but I found it riveting and watched it again with my husband, who also found it riveting. We're going to buy this film and add it to our 1000+ DVD collection. I would add that Ana de Armas, who is NOT interchangeable, saw her career skyrocket after this film. Okay, it's a detective story with supernatural elements. If you liked The Sixth Sense, you'll love this film even more, because you won't see the twist at the end coming, even watching it a second time. Yes, the director threw a hissy fit, because he wanted to do what sounded like a self-indulgent art house film and Lionsgate recut it into a tight thriller. I liked the thriller, a lot.
I was never into the Winnie-the-Pooh stories and didn't expect to like this. I did. It was charming. I loved that the voice for Pooh was close to Sterling Holloway's, who apparently did Pooh back in the 1970s (and so many other Disney characters!). Brought back a lot of memories.
Disappointing, given the reviews. Poor script. The character never emerge beyond stick-figures. No feeling of authenticity, beginning with the L.L. Bean outfits. I expected something between "Cry Wolf" and "Quest for Fire." This was just a groaner.
I feel like I've already seen this one.
They lost me at "eating hair."
Sounds like a twist on 50 First Dates.
If this has a story they unfortunately lost me with "strong sexuality, graphic nudity, language and a brief disturbing image."
I will go to see anything starring Kristin Scott Thomas. Terrific actress.
Sounds like Encino Man with guitars
Meh. Ive seen this plot before.
Too much information
This reminded me of how music/songs held people together during the Okie migration of the 1930s.
