This is a great movie that makes you think about the implications of greed. The characters are very well developed. I found this movie to be very believable and it is very exciting. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a good movie to watch on a Sunday afternoon.

John Larroquette plays Steve Martin's son, Jim in the hit TV show "Life is a Television" (a play based on a real TV show, so the title is not at all a misnomer). Martin is a successful, successful, successful man and the show's producer. He decides to get a divorce from his wife, who is also his producer. This time he doesn't get what he bargained for. Jim (playing a role very much like the one he played in the movie) is the victim of a murder. So far so good, but Larroquette turns into a serial killer. He tortures and murders the young boy he was supposed to be in love with, turns his father into a maniac, and lets his mother die. What a great plot, right? Not only is it interesting and believable, it is very much the way life is for the average American family. It has the same kind of roots as all the great crime dramas of the past, namely the "Goodfellas" series. Yes, I am speaking of the original "Goodfellas" series, not of this one. If you like crime dramas, and want to see a good one, "Life is a Television" is a must. Larroquette does a great job, as do the rest of the cast, especially the two young children, the children of Martin and "Life is a Television". The movie is very well directed and filmed, but the script leaves something to be desired. I would say that this movie has a plot like an episode of "The Sopranos" or "Breaking Bad", or like "Dallas" or "Breaking Bad". It is a drama that keeps you hooked. This movie is a must-see.

All the way through this film I was thinking "This is a remake of 'The Imitation Game' but not really". I'm not a fan of 'the imitator game' either but this film was surprisingly enjoyable and interesting. The film doesn't try to be anything it's not. It's a dark film about a young man who is suffering from dementia. He's supposed to have some secrets, but is he trying to make it clear? He's not quite good enough to be a spy, not yet, not yet, not yet. But he's still not good enough to be a sadist, not yet, not yet. He's not really good at being a spy either. He's just trying to find out if his wife and daughter were really who he thought they were. I didn't find the film all that entertaining or interesting but I did find it thought provoking. It was well directed, well acted and well written. The only negative thing about this film was the editing. It was a bit too choppy at times, but it was necessary. It was not distracting and didn't take away from the film at all. The editing was a bit choppy and the film felt like it was missing some good scenes. But overall it was a good film. I recommend this film to everyone.

The Israeli government has invested a lot of money in what we might call "intellectual property" and created a "global network of critical institutions" which "cannot operate in a country without surveillance and control" as its president said. The security of the Israeli economy depends on the secrecy of its citizens, but the citizens can have a critical voice. "The thing about life is that sometimes it gets ugly," says Judah Ben Givon (Ilan Rahim), an Israeli-born Jew who has become a devout Zionist who is being driven out of the country. "We can't live here anymore," says Nir Bar-Lev (Lior Ashkenazi), a middle-aged father of three who lives in a poor part of Tel Aviv. "We can't live in Tel Aviv. I want to move to Brooklyn. But Israel can't tolerate immigrants and immigrants can't tolerate Israel." In the final scene of this film, the director, Aaron Seltzer, is interviewing people in a hotel room, each of whom has their own stories about how they became involved in the Israeli intelligence community. These people are not alone. There are more than 100 Israeli ambassadors, directors of scientific research, and retired military men, and they all say that they have learned a great deal from the Israeli secret service and that they hope to use it in their careers. They tell the filmmaker about the challenges of infiltrating Israeli society, how the agents operate, how the data is obtained, and about how the spies are selected. One of the ambassadors, Yaron Oz, an engineer, says that the security system in Israel is "based on silence." It is "the Israelis' weapon," he says. The Israeli secret service is an important ally of the United States, and the Israelis have been able to put their agents in the highest positions of power in the US government, from the secretary of state to the president. "This is our big strategic asset," says Ronen Litzenberger, a former Israeli ambassador to the United States. "But this is a little too big a number of people." In Israel, the men and women who have gained the trust of the country's intelligence chiefs are particularly important. Among the leaders of the Israeli intelligence service is Shlomo Aronson (Eli Yishai), a former prime minister who lives in a comfortable apartment with his wife and two daughters. They are the ones who are paid to spy on the Israeli population. Their goal is to discover what goes on in the country and to destroy the sources

Bergman did a great job in this film. The real life details are quite realistic. The plot is pretty well written and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The movie is fast paced. I really liked it. The actors did a good job. It was good to see that the people who were involved in the movie weren't just actors playing themselves. I also liked how it wasn't one long monologue about how a person was a traitor. It was actually a movie about them trying to fix their mistake and trying to live with the consequences. The film is good for people who like to watch a lot of action. The plot is great, the actors are good, and the direction is very good. I recommend this movie to people who like to watch a lot of action and want to see how things turn out.

After seeing this film, I felt like I was watching a documentary. I was riveted by it, and its ending was very gripping. The acting was top notch, especially by Natalie Portman, who should get more roles in the future. Overall, a great film.

Marie photo

The plot of this movie is a little complicated. This is actually a movie that is worth watching. The acting is solid, and the writing is very clever. It's definitely a movie you don't want to miss. You'll get to know a little about the people who are trying to figure out what is going on in the Middle East. The cast is great, and you will be smiling at times. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is into good movies. I would recommend this movie to people who enjoy good movies.

This film was more than decent. Sure there were some problems. The main one is that I would have liked to have seen more of the supporting cast and the story. Some of the characters were just completely wasted and even some of the actors were not that good at it. There were also some plot holes and not all of the events were explained. The ending was disappointing, though it was not completely without meaning. There are some rather violent scenes and they are definitely not necessary. But other than that, the movie was a very good one. The action was great, the acting was fine, and the story was not too bad. The ending is a little sad but I can't say I was happy about it.

It's a good film, not great, but it is good. Don't get me wrong, I like many other films and have enjoyed them all, but this is just what I wanted, an honest, unpretentious film. There is some good dialogue, some witty lines, and plenty of background to explain the story. One of the things I like about this film is the relationship between the two main characters. It's not at all hard to get to like, and get on with them, it just requires some thought. There is a scene where their friend is left behind in a bus, and the two young men are forced to save him. It's not a lot of dialogue, but it's a scene that is very true to the nature of friendship and loyalty. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes a good crime film, or just an enjoyable film to watch. I rate this film 8/10

This is a very gripping and suspenseful movie about a serial killer who preys on the vulnerable and the elderly. There is a great deal of foreshadowing and foreshadowing in the movie. You have a sense that there is something that is going to happen in the film, and it does. It also has some good suspenseful scenes. There are some beautiful shots in this movie, especially the night scenes, as well as the back and forth between the police, and the serial killer. If you want to be creeped out, then this is not the movie for you. It's better to watch it alone, because you will not be disturbed. The best way to describe this movie is to say that it is a horror film, with a lot of suspense, and an ending that is very satisfying.

Jacqueline photo

Don't waste your time. This is a boring, formulaic thriller that tries to keep you guessing what will happen next. Yes, we get that there is a "crime" going on but that doesn't really matter. Just sit back and watch a movie that is full of hype and predictable story lines.

When the revolutionary Russian revolution overthrew the tsar, its second prime minister was accused of being a Bolshevik. The allegation was bolstered by the fact that he was a gentleman, with an excellent English accent. In a series of films that followed the story, some of which have a great deal of the truth, this was a major source of contention for many. The film has been shown in London several times, and it is a much more polished, but entertaining film than you might expect. This is mainly because it is based on real events and is a series of historical facts, rather than a fictional account. The film also explores how the revolutionaries reacted to their suppression by the tsar and his government. There is a very good documentary on the Russian Revolution on the BBC website, which gives some of the history of the revolution and its aftermath. I was expecting to see a film that was very tightly structured and detailed, but it's really more of a series of facts. The characters are all fairly well developed, and the acting is very good. The film has its faults, though, and the majority of it is spent trying to work out how the men and women of the revolution reacted to the government's suppression of their ideas and the economic embargo on Russia. The film doesn't do a very good job of giving the audience a very good understanding of the motivations of the revolutionaries. The plot also appears to be drawn out. There are more than a few plot points that don't seem to be very important. In particular, the character of Maximillian, a wealthy member of the revolution, is more interesting than the character of Maximilian (played by the actor Sam O'Niel). This is also the case with the character of Lillian (played by the actress Uma Thurman). As a result, it's very hard to really get invested in the plot. It's also easy to see how the characters were drawn from a selection of the best people who were in the revolution, and it's a good point that they didn't really get a lot of screen time. All in all, it's a good historical film, but it's not really very engaging. It's not a great film, but it's not a bad one either.

The movie is not like the book. It is more like a movie version of a book. I like the movie version more. But if you like the book, I would still say you should see the movie. This is not a disappointment, just more of a disappointment. The movie was boring, just like the book. It was so slow and not at all exciting. This was my major complaint. If you like the book, don't go see this movie. If you don't like the book, don't go see this movie. It was a waste of money. I would rather spend my money on a movie and a book. I'm not sorry I went to see this movie, it was a good movie but it was too slow for me.

Based on the book by Joshua Ezra, this film depicts the life of a very successful professional spy. But he is recruited by a rival to infiltrate the inner workings of a powerful political organization. This is the third film in the "American History X" franchise, so if you liked the previous films, you will like this one. As you can see, I don't like this franchise. But I think this one is a step up from the other films. This film is very well directed, but it suffers from a weak plot. But the film is very well acted, so that doesn't really matter. What I think really hurts this film is the acting. The film tries to create some serious drama with the main character's family life, but the acting is very weak. But this is not the main problem. The main problem with this film is that it is a very weak film. If you liked the previous films, you will probably like this one. The acting is so bad that I don't think I could watch this film again. I really hope that Hollywood stops producing films with this level of acting. 8/10.

What happens when you have the most powerful person in the world, and you know all the people in power, what would you do? This is the question The King's Speech asked. For most of the film we see Michael Fassbender as 'the head of the NSA'. His performance is excellent, a combination of raw, emotionless and mesmerizing. The way he plays this role is completely different to any other actor in the world. The movie never feels like you are watching a normal movie. There is something that feels totally different about this movie. The way the movie is shot is so intense that I felt like I was there. I thought that there were some really beautiful scenes in this movie, which reminded me of Kubrick's 2001. One of my favorite scenes is when Fassbender is in the middle of a war, and we see the battle that is going on around him, and when he walks into the village he sees a child being used to take care of the 'dark' side of the army. The scenes are amazing and there is a perfect mixture of powerful emotion and the fear that the director wants to show us. The ending is great too. Fassbender really brings his character to life. The best thing about this movie is that it shows how we can and should change the world, and how it will never be perfect. I am not a very big fan of Michael Fassbender, but he made this movie work, and he did it brilliantly. I am not going to give away any spoilers about the movie, but the last scene is something that I will remember for the rest of my life.

I have seen this movie over and over again, and every time I watch it I find something new, something that makes it even more enjoyable. It's very fast paced, and the director has done an excellent job in making the story flow. The cinematography is excellent, and the sound effects are also very good. The cast is great, as are the performances of the entire cast. The story has a good pacing, and the characters are very well drawn. The direction and editing is also very good, making it easy to follow the action. The camera work is also very good. I have not seen the Director's Cut of this film yet, but I am looking forward to it. If you like films like The Usual Suspects, Raising Arizona, The Usual Suspects 2, and the last half of the Matrix trilogy, you should check out This Movie is Not Yet Rated. It's a great thriller with a great cast, and a great story.

I watched this film in college and it really stuck with me. It's a great film and a great way to put some history into perspective. It's hard to explain what makes this film good but it's actually really good. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a great film. 8/10

I was very skeptical going into the theatre as I'm a fan of "straight" thriller and would've thought this film would be lame or ridiculous. I was pleasantly surprised as I was thoroughly entertained throughout the entire film. The performances are very good, especially by the lead actresses, both of whom are fantastic. I was impressed by the twist of the story, and I was satisfied with how the story turned out. I'm also surprised at the amount of hate this film is getting, and I don't blame them for that. The film is a very good film, and I think many will agree with me.

It's a good thriller. I've seen a lot of reviewers comment on the fact that the story was based on a true story, but in actual fact it was a Hollywood film that became a national film.

The CIA at the end of the Cold War has a problem: what to do with some of its old agents, some of whom are simply too old for the job. The most senior of these agents, Anthony Quinn (Tom Hanks), has seen enough, he is about to retire. His wife Joanne (Kate Bosworth), on the other hand, has made it clear that she wants him to stay in the Agency and has become a mentor to Quinn. When Quinn accepts a job at a secret CIA outpost, his former comrades tell him that he must be tested for his loyalty. In order to prove his loyalty, Quinn must leave his wife, go undercover in the Soviet Union, and work to find out what secrets the CIA has. This is an interesting film, one of the better spy thrillers of the late eighties. Tom Hanks does a very good job as Quinn, and I especially enjoyed him when he was under attack from the KGB, which was one of the highlights of the film. This is a very well made film, and a worthy addition to the genre. It's about as authentic as a spy film can get, and while it's not a masterpiece, it is an enjoyable film to watch.

From the producers of the hugely successful British TV series, 'The Office' comes a fascinating, slightly derivative but well-done film about a major event in British history. Richard III (Colin Firth) is played by the talented Colin Firth who can pull off a convincing 'Royalty' as the head of the House of York. However, while the British establishment had already lost a king for a while, the anti-royalist factions had been battling the House of York for a long time. Therefore, with the arrival of King Richard III, a member of the House of York is forced to reveal that his faction was trying to get rid of the king for their own benefit. In a desperate attempt to keep the king from passing on the crown to his heir, Yorkist forces have already arrested the king's mother, Elizabeth (Nicole Kidman) and his queen consort, Mary (Charlotte Rampling) as well as leading Earl Marshal and Captain Fillery (Christopher Eccleston) into a trap. With the support of his father (Colin Firth), Earl Marshal has vowed to defend his lord father and to end the battle. This film is a light-hearted and comedic British drama that tells a powerful story about the events of the Hundred Years War. While it's very clear that the producers knew exactly what they wanted to do, they still managed to have a strong plot that was entertaining and exciting. There's plenty of humor, romance and action. Colin Firth does a great job playing the young Richard III, a man who was so innocent and sheltered that he couldn't even understand the concept of love and politics. His actions are all rather stereotypical, but they're all well-choreographed and extremely enjoyable. Nicolas Cage is also great as Richard III, who's role is larger than life. He's the perfect image of the evil Yorkist leader and Cage shows the viewer exactly how he sees the king. He's played his part perfectly and is fantastic in his portrayal. As a huge Richard III fan, I was very impressed with the portrayal of the young Richard III. The writing was fantastic, as well as the use of the film's key events. The editing is perfect and the camera angles are very effective. The camera angles are used very well in this film, making it very interesting and fast-paced. There's also great use of music, and I especially liked the use of music during the beginning of the film, before the events actually happen. The music is very fitting and fits

Well-acted. Powerful and gripping. I have rarely seen a more powerful, accurate portrayal of how terrorists operate. This movie is about how some good intentions can come to a bad end.

The titular film is the second film I've seen from Nicolas Winding Refn, and what a performance from Daniel Craig, who I've always thought of as a great Bond villain. The themes of human morality are explored with such a brutal honesty that it's hard to find one scene to disagree with, especially during the climax. I don't think I can possibly find any fault with the acting, however. It's true that the supporting cast are a little shaky, but this is a big reason why I love the film. Refn's world is too dark and barren to be appreciated from the outside, yet the performances make up for it, the balance between human decency and brutality is very well presented. It's hard to say a lot about the film, as it's so different from what I expected it to be. I wasn't expecting to find a quiet, thoughtful story about morality, but it's a story with a lot of heart. I hope you'll find it as moving as I did.

Mary photo

This film has won awards all over the world and is still being considered one of the best film of all time. It is the best film of the last decade in my opinion and not only because it is based on true events but the story is well constructed. This film is realistic and highly recommended to all because you must see this movie if you are a person who like movies about politics and not just the media and politics.

Heather photo

I have just watched this movie and I was amazed how much I enjoyed it. I thought it was one of the best films of 2013, and I must say that I was wrong. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good story and will not have to deal with Hollywood. The acting is great.especially the Michael Fassbender performance. The plot is fresh and interesting. The ending is something I could not have guessed. And if you don't have a problem with long movies, you will love this movie. I loved it. So go watch it, it's one of the best films of the year.

Debra photo

This movie is a great movie. The movie in my opinion is a great movie and one of the best movies of all time. It has everything you would expect from a great movie. It is a great movie with so much action and the music is great too. I would give this movie a ten out of ten.

A great movie with a very intriguing plot. Good acting, direction, and production values make this movie a must see. In a way, it reminds me of movies like The Deer Hunter and American History X. The story is very well developed, and the movie takes you on a journey that you can't take your eyes off. The characters are all likable, and you care about them. The ending is a bit abrupt, but the movie is very well made, and you'll want to watch it again.

If there was ever a movie that needed to be made, this would be it. I really feel that this movie should be seen by as many people as possible, both for the uniqueness of the storyline as well as the strength of the acting in it. It's a must-see!

This movie is a masterpiece. It has a great plot, great acting, and great cinematography. The story is told in a way that is completely believable. The acting is superb, the acting is outstanding. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to learn about the Soviet Union. It is the best movie I have ever seen.

It is a shame that a film like this gets a poor rating. The pacing is excellent and the story is interesting. It is an obvious homage to The Fugitive, but it works on its own. It doesn't have to have its characters doublecrossed by the authorities for a slice of the pie, because it is ultimately the mystery of why people would betray each other that drives the story. Every single character in the film is flawed and they all are portrayed with a certain amount of sympathy. There is no likable villain in the movie, but there are enough of them to satisfy the viewer. I like the way that they don't show everyone being at each other's throats. It gives you the feeling that no one is at the table at the end of a night with no one to go to. There is no mystery here. You are left with questions, but they are answered. It's a great film. There are some weak points, but none of them affect the film as a whole. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Andrea Arnold is simply incredible. Her brilliant, nuanced performance as Ali is so real, so believable, that you never doubt her character's intelligence. She makes it believable that such a bad guy could be so well-versed in human psychology, that he could allow himself to be used by a rival gang. The fact that she shows no signs of wanting to lose Ali to the enemy, the viewer can just as well believe that the enemy would not mind having him inside their ranks as well. The cinematography is excellent, and the editing and cinematography of the real story of the Japanese occupation of Japan is superb, for that reason alone. The editing and cinematography of the movie is clearly better than most Hollywood movies. The director is not afraid to go into the enemy's house and ask why they are so good at killing people, but he never hesitates to show the cameraman the blood on his hands after a fight. The movie is clearly a work of art, as the setting is the late 1930's. The concept of the movie is so original and brilliant, that it is very difficult to see why the film never has been made, since it is a wonderful, touching, intelligent, and moving story. The screenplay is excellent, the cast is top-notch, and the performances are all top-notch. Most of all, I love how Andrea Arnold's character changes throughout the film, so that you can't help but become attached to her, and in a way, to her. "Andrea Arnold" is the best film I have ever seen.

I had heard of this film for years, and always wondered what it would be like. I had seen it advertised, and had a vague idea of what it was about. It was a good film. The script was great. The cast was great. The actors all played their roles well. I am not a fan of Tom Hanks, but he did a good job as the father. This film had a very realistic feel to it. It was very gritty and realistic. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes a good drama. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes a good film.

This film is amazing. A must see for all true film lovers. The performances are superb, the writing is perfect, the cinematography is stunning and the score is superb. It is the most realistic and true story of a career crime in America. There are some very sad scenes and you can't help but feel sorry for the people involved. This is a must see. I highly recommend it. A perfect 10

Margaret photo

This film is a jewel in the cinematic panorama of true crime films. The performances by the entire cast are flawless. My only real complaint is the direction. The performances are fabulous. There is an uncomfortable element of surrealism that is perhaps part of the effect of the cast. There is a quiet sentimentality about the film that seems to echo the all-too-human desire for a couple of characters to be able to be close to each other. If this element had been eliminated the film would be better. Overall, it's an excellent film. I recommend it.

Sharon photo

You have to have a few friends in Hollywood to see what I'm talking about. This movie gets better with every viewing. Well directed, a very well written script, and the acting is top notch. The direction, the camera work, and the script are all second to none. The plot is kept hidden under a lot of symbolism and double entendres. If you like excellent cinema, this is the movie for you.

When the movie was released, I was shocked that a movie like this was produced. I was also shocked that the rating of this movie was only 4.5/10. I felt it was a little too harsh for this movie. However, I was surprised to see that the movie did not get the rating it deserved. The movie is very good and worth watching. The characters are well developed and the story is very engaging. The action is great and I found myself laughing at a lot of the scenes. Overall, I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good thriller. It is a great movie that I would definitely recommend to anyone. Also, I would like to mention that this movie was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture - Drama and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Motion Picture - Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good thriller.

I am so glad that I decided to watch this movie. I don't know if this is the best movie I have ever seen, but it is definitely one of the best movies I have seen. This movie is a roller coaster of emotions. I was actually very emotional the entire time I was watching this movie. The cast did a great job, especially James Cromwell. He was the one that kept me from walking out of the theater. This movie was very emotional. The story is very good, and the acting is great. I would definitely recommend this movie. I will definitely watch this movie again. The movie is very well done. The actors did a great job. I really enjoyed this movie. The movie is very emotional and the movie does a good job of showing the effects of the war on people. This movie is very well done.

This movie is about a former CIA operative who finds himself under the control of a ruthless Russian mobster and his right hand man. What makes this movie so unique is that we get to see the entire story from the point of view of the mob boss, and how he deals with his men. This is a story that is told in such a way that the viewer can really relate to the protagonist. He is not a normal man. He is not the stereotypical bad guy. He is an agent that has to deal with a very real threat, and to do that he must be extremely professional. He is not the kind of guy you would normally associate with the CIA. This is not a Hollywood movie, and it does not have the typical Hollywood ending. The ending is very unique and is the main reason to see this movie. It is very dark and very disturbing. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good thriller.

Now there are some who criticize this film, saying that it is too slow, that it does not go as deep as it could have, and that it seems to go for so long that it becomes boring. The idea is interesting, but that is the problem. The slow pace of the film is almost a cop-out. It is a fact that films are slower than movies, that is what makes them different. No film can be a picture perfect picture, it requires a very intelligent audience and a good director to make it the way it is supposed to be. The problem is that one gets the feeling that it is a very slow picture, and when one thinks that the film is supposed to be very slow, the slow pace becomes more and more the norm. The fact that it is slow is not the problem, the problem is the film that is not slow. The acting is great, the story is very interesting, the way the characters are presented are brilliant, the violence is gruesome, and the music is just great, it is almost cinematic. I really hope that the film doesn't get the critical treatment it deserves. This is a great movie, even though it is slow, I recommend this film to anyone who loves great movies, a very good story, great acting, great direction, and a great soundtrack. Go and watch this film, you will enjoy it.

I have been a fan of Tom Hanks ever since I first saw him in "The Pianist" and he has become one of my favorite actors. In this film, he plays a famous author who is also a spy for the Russian government. He is trying to infiltrate the U.S. government. I think he should have won an Oscar for this. It is great that he has been nominated for it. The movie is very interesting and entertaining. It is the type of movie you watch a couple times and then you will want to watch it again. Tom Hanks is an excellent actor and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a good movie.

I watched this with my parents, and my Dad, a retired military officer and infantryman, loved it so much that he brought the DVD home with him. One thing that my Dad loves is his army uniform, and he has a secret, he can't go back to work in the Army because he's a gay man. His uniform is actually made for him, not for any other guy, and so he wears it on the job as he can't change it. I'm sure the plot is a bit outdated, but it is a good movie, especially for anybody who has known a gay man or a transvestite, and can relate to what the characters go through. As for the acting, both Gene Hackman and Gary Oldman are so good, the young cast is great as well. Even the British people are great, and a few scenes are a bit cringe worthy but it is understandable in the context of the movie. I can't believe this was rated just a PG-13, it's so much more intense. But it's great, and the ending is my favorite of all the times I've seen it. Highly recommend it!

I have seen this movie about 10 times and it never gets old. The cast is wonderful, the script is very well written, the acting is superb and the direction is great. It is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is a must see for all fans of the genre. I would like to know how the movie was rated. I am not sure why it is not rated higher. The movie is not a huge budget film, it is shot in a very professional manner, the music is very good and the acting is superb. It is not a big budget film but it does not have to be. The movie is a perfect movie to see. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a great movie that is well worth seeing.

This film is simply brilliant! Very much recommended! A great film that will leave you thinking about it for days after! And the thing that really makes this film stand out from the rest of the packs is the perfect blend of violence, humour, emotion and brilliant acting from its cast. The humour and violence in this film were brilliant, as was the chemistry between all of the actors and the chemistry between each other. This film was a MUST! The film is extremely believable, very well written, the cast is perfect, and the plot and overall plot is great. It is also one of the best films I have seen in a long time! If you haven't seen this film yet then do. This film is THE ONE! 10/10

A good movie, I had to see it. I have never been a fan of Russian movies but I did not expect much, as it was a very small budget. But the story is good, the actors are good, the way they acted in the movie is very good, I have never seen a movie like this. I have to say, the director is very good. I liked the idea, the way he told the story, and the way he created the characters. The film is not perfect, but it is a good movie. I am going to watch it again, and I am not disappointed. A great movie, a very good one. A must watch, you will not regret watching it.

I saw this movie first with my wife, and then a few weeks later, we all saw it together, as a group. I loved the dialogue, I loved the performances, and I loved how the story evolved. I was left in no doubt that it was done on purpose. However, I was a little confused by the ending. In the book, John Davenport (Dennis Quaid) is asked by his son if he is considering what his father did in Vietnam. John replies, "No, I'm not." In the movie, when Davenport is asked about what his father did in Vietnam, he says, "I left him two years ago." It seems that they simply left out the part of John Davenport that he was actually killed in Vietnam. However, the scene with "pornography" is exactly how the book ends. The only real problem I had with the movie was the pacing. It felt like the first half hour went on forever and that it dragged a little. I wish they could have cut down on the time on the film and made the film more efficient. I think it would have made a much better film, if the film was made much longer. Finally, I enjoyed how the characters were portrayed. Dennis Quaid is not a charismatic character, and I think he was portrayed well. I also loved the way that the ending of the movie was handled. In the book, John Davenport and Dennis Quaid were both suspected of murder and John was only put on trial. I think this aspect of the film was better handled in the book.

I loved it. I loved it so much I wanted to watch it again, but I never did. Maybe if I see it again I'll have a better appreciation for it, but I haven't seen it yet, so that's a huge question mark.

In this movie, Nicolas Cage plays an engineer who is on his way to bring an adorably eccentric and seemingly complete sociopathic persona to the movie screen. The whole movie is a clever concept of a man being drawn to the work of an underground organization of psychopathic thieves who want to take over the planet. The movie shows that we all need to be careful what we wish for. It is definitely an insightful movie, and the acting is superb. But the thing I like the most is the comic relief. Some of the jokes that Cage does, are really great. That's why I love it so much.

Only being 21, I didn't know much about the play, and I thought that this movie would be another typical film in this genre. But I wasn't disappointed, this is a well done movie about character relationships and betrayal, where the most important relationships are what the film does so well. The protagonist is played by a good actor, Denzel Washington, and he is really convincing in his performance, he is so good, that you have to believe he is in this situation, to see what's going on. Also I like the small pieces of the story, the part of the protagonist that shows us the truth about the director, in this case it is the director who lives on the roof of the apartment building, and that person is so trustworthy that he will never let anyone interfere with the truth, and this shows the direction the director is going to go. All in all I would highly recommend this movie to any movie lover, because it is so much better than most of the films that you will see in theaters.

Who would have thought that this is the picture that would make "Duel" a cult classic. I've seen it over 20 times now and still find it to be very interesting and quite brutal. It's actually worth watching just for the opening sequences of the film which I won't repeat here because I've watched it so many times. It's interesting to see how the film plays out because at first it seems so conventional and simple but you're only surprised when things get very complicated and you really start to care for the characters. If you've never seen it before it's best to see it for the first time first then rewatch it as it's so different from your memory. The acting is good and the direction is fantastic. It's a crime film at its best and there are some really intense scenes that show how scary it can be. I'm not a big fan of romantic films but this is one that I watch over and over again just for the tense moments and the ending. I also loved the way that it looked and the way it was shot. I never understood why it's almost impossible to find a copy of this film. It's worth the effort just to watch it and I've seen it so many times I've bought a copy of the film and watched it over and over again. This is one of my all time favourite films and you should see it.

I first learned of the James Cameron's film when it came out in the theaters. It was no drama, and seemed to be more of a spy thriller than a drama, but I decided to see it anyway, because it looked to be a great movie. I ended up liking it, but I am not a big fan of sci-fi and drama. But after seeing it, I am glad I decided to see it. It is a great movie, it keeps you on the edge of your seat, it keeps you on your toes, it has a great performance by Cameron and the actors that played each character. It has a great story, and its main thing is that it is not a drama. It was not made for that. But it is a great film, and I recommend it to anyone that is a sci-fi lover, a drama lover, or just a movie lover. It is a great movie, and I give it a 10 out of 10.

I first heard about this movie from my friend, who thought it was very interesting. After watching the movie, I was very disappointed. The movie starts out in a very good way, and then the story takes a turn for the worst. The main character, played by James Franco, starts off in a very promising way. He's likable and likable. I thought he would be a great character, until the end. He's a really bad actor, and it showed. I was very disappointed. I thought this movie would be good, but it was not. I don't think it was worth the money I paid for it. It was a waste of time.

There are several facets to this movie that separate it from other films of it's type. It is in every way, a masterpiece. I would say it is as good as Inglorious Bastards. And thats not a bad thing at all. It is a masterpiece. So many of the actors who played their roles were excellent. Even John Cusack was terrific as the terrible, abusive boyfriend. Mark Wahlberg, in a few of his more more serious roles, was solid as usual. Christian Slater was, without a doubt, the best villain in the film. But it is really Streep's performance that makes this film stand out. Her accent was so well-delivered and so well-fitted, that the movie could not have been the masterpiece it is without her. If the screenplay wasn't so good, it would have made it into a film you could just rent out. I truly, truly hope that people, like me, see this film and realize that it is just another masterpiece of film making. Thank you, Mr. Hanks and Ms. Streep, for your incredible work.

I have seen this movie many times and still love it. It is the best spy movie I have seen in the last 10 years. I would give it a 10 out of 10. The performances are amazing. I love this movie and will always love it. If you are a fan of James Bond movies then you will love this movie.

What can I say about this movie? It was a true surprise. The movie was great. It had a great story line, great acting, great action scenes, great cinematography, great effects. And, it had a great message. In this day and age, people do not think twice about the government and corporations doing evil deeds to the people. But, this movie showed that. People do not think twice about people being killed by the government and corporations. That is why this movie was great. This movie shows that people can fight back. People can fight back and change things. This movie was a true surprise. It has great acting and great story line. I give this movie a 10/10.

This movie is a great drama and a great movie to see with your family. The acting of the two main characters are great and you can see that they have really worked hard to create a believable story. The chemistry between them is amazing and they really make you feel like you are part of the story. The two main characters are a very good example of people who are caught in a situation and how they deal with it. This is a must see movie. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see a great movie.

this is the type of film that everybodys gotta see. it's one of those films that are so good that i cant even put it into words. the film is a stunning indictment on the current economic system. its not your usual bad guy film. it is so much more than that. it has a sense of tragic irony and revenge that just won't leave you. all the characters are brilliantly played. it's a film that gives you a feeling of hope that will likely be ruined. the film is a very powerful and insightful take on the current economic system. the characters are made to look so evil, yet so noble. they act the way you'd think them to act in this situation. it's quite scary to think that this film could really be such a good thing, that its really meant to be seen by people. for all the critics out there, i recommend that you see this film and judge for yourself. it's not the usual modern day action film. it's not your typical award winning film. it's a film that comes across as so real and tragic. its so serious that you feel like you could be the next person who suffers from the economic system.

Finally a movie I can say I enjoyed. I am not a fan of war movies, but this was so well made, the director captured the gritty and rough realism of World War II like no other I've seen. Everyone involved was excellent in their respective roles. The script is elegant and rich. I cannot wait to see it again. I would rate this movie a 10 and recommend it to anyone.

I saw this movie on DVD and I was very impressed. I thought it was very well done, the acting was great, the plot was good, and the movie didn't have any super-stupid scenes. It was realistic. I would definitely recommend it. It was good. I would have given it a 10 if it weren't for the ending. It was so ridiculous. The scene was about an hour in and I was like, "Okay, we're done here, the movie's over." The movie is not meant to be a deep or thought-provoking movie. It is meant to be a good, well-made, entertaining movie. So I really can't see why the movie was so controversial. It was a good movie, and I would definitely recommend it.

Saw this film on Netflix and was completely blown away. I've read the book and loved it, so when I heard that a film was being made I was skeptical. I'm glad I went with my partner and we both thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It was an incredible combination of characters and story. The performances were outstanding. I was completely drawn into the story. I don't think I've ever seen a film that has such a strong impact on me. This film is very underrated, it's definitely worth a watch. The film itself is a great example of what a good film should be. I think it's also important to point out that I love the characters and how they react to each other. They are all very likable and they really made me care about the characters. The whole cast did a great job and I can't wait to see more of their work. The film is so great, I highly recommend it. Go watch it!

This film, like so many other great films, is not about the story, but the characters. It's about the journey of two men, who at first, seem to be on opposite sides of the law, but then, at the same time, seem to have been separated by it. This is a film about the art of making a film, and the characters that are behind the scenes of making it. The performances are superb, but the real star of this film is the soundtrack. It's a collection of great songs, and it's absolutely breathtaking. The soundtrack is a fantastic piece of work, and it is hard to understand why this film has not received the acclaim it deserves. The only flaw in the film is that it does feel a little too long, and I'm sure there are many others who would agree. This film is a must see, and one of the best films of the year.

This is a really well made movie that is definitely worth watching. If you like stories that are like life, then this is a must watch. The acting was superb, the music was excellent, the story line was great, and the characters were all very interesting. The movie was well worth watching, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the story of an undercover FBI agent. This movie will definitely make you think about the importance of integrity, and what it means to be a good person. I can't wait to see it again, and I will be buying it when it comes out on DVD. This movie has something for everyone, and it is definitely worth watching.

The film is based on the life of former British agent turned Russian assassin, Vadim Zaitsev (played by Ben Kingsley), who spent the rest of his life in prison, and was released in 2006. After being released, he lived a quiet life in exile in Switzerland. It is in his mind that the FBI has put him in charge of a task force to find a source of information for the investigation into the death of a former Soviet agent, Boris Nemtsov (played by Andrey Zvyagintsev). The task force includes FBI agent Nina Burleigh (played by Juliette Lewis), a journalist played by newcomer Julie Delpy, and a Russian agent played by Michael Gambon. The group is put together for the purpose of finding Nemtsov's killer, and of course to make sure that no one else has any idea what they are up to. Vadim Zaitsev is a fascinating character, and his character is played with such a dark, cynical edge, that the audience is left to wonder how he is able to live a quiet life in Switzerland, when he is so intent on finding out who Nemtsov is, and why he was killed. Kingsley is excellent as the ruthless, cold-hearted killer, and Lewis is excellent as his wife. Gambon is brilliant as the FBI agent, and the rest of the cast is also excellent. The film is very well acted, and the story is well thought out. The characters are all very complex and well developed. The film is very well written and the direction is excellent. The film is well worth seeing, and the performances by the entire cast are very good. The film is an extremely dark film, and that is the only reason I did not give it a 10/10.
