When I first heard about this movie, I was initially skeptical about seeing it. I am a big fan of Michael Douglas. I knew of his filmography. But now that I've seen it, I'm in love with this movie. This film is a real gem. I'm not going to lie. I'm not a big fan of mystery-thrillers, but I thought this movie was great. I can't explain why. The reason I can is because the actors do an amazing job. They gave their all. This movie could have been completely boring and dull, but there were things in this movie that made it more exciting. For instance, the robbery sequence was outstanding. The best part was when it happened. I thought the whole sequence was very exciting. I could watch this movie several times over. The ending was also incredible. If you love mysteries, you should definitely see this movie. If you're not a big fan of mysteries, you should definitely see this movie. I think it is one of the best thrillers I've ever seen.

I read the book "The Book of Henry" when I was a kid and I was amazed to see how much detail was included into the film. The photography, the acting, the story, the music, everything was exactly as it was described in the book. It's very difficult to make a movie like this and the book was not the most accurate portrayal of life in the 1930's. I thought the movie was very accurate, especially the costumes and the cinematography. I also liked the acting of Ron Eldard and the main character Henry Rollins. I would have loved to have seen his friend Rodney from the KROQ show, Marley and my baby brother from the show, they were also very convincing in their roles. I felt they did a very good job. I wish that the people who made this movie had worked with the book a little more, but I don't know how much they could have done because they had the book so full of detail and details. I know that they were not able to make a movie like the book, but I think that they would have made a movie better than the book. I gave the movie a 10 because of all the details that were included. You really have to be a book reader to understand the details that are included. The movie is excellent and I highly recommend you to see it.

I loved this film, it has a very dark tone, it has a brilliant plot and a very well acted cast. I like that this film isn't afraid to show the ugliness of the criminal justice system in the USA and also the corruption and lack of remorse in people who are already convicted. I love this film. I can't believe that I haven't seen it yet!

I went into this film expecting a one star film and was surprised. It was directed by a black director with a black cast and it does a good job of keeping it together and keeping it moving. The story of a man going insane and killing people for whatever reason is gripping and well executed. The film never drags and the action never ceases. There is a lot of fighting but it is all done with the same camera angles that we have seen hundreds of times before. It is a good watch but not a great movie. I would highly recommend this film but not every film needs to have a 3 star rating.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to see this movie until I read the reviews on this site. I can't believe so many people have either hated it or loved it. This movie is worth your time. It is a true story of a man who became a psychopathic killer after a horrible tragedy in his life. This movie has not the big explosions or action that you would expect from a movie of this type. It's not supposed to be a blood and guts type of movie. It's a great movie that has a great story and wonderful acting. This is a movie that everyone should see at least once. I am so glad to see a great movie like this one that has been overlooked. It's a very sad and dark movie that will make you think and discuss about what you have been watching. This movie will change your life and show you the true definition of "life."

I am a new fan of this movie, and I can tell you that I was blown away by this movie. The actors, the story, everything was just perfect. This movie is a little slow, but that doesn't matter, because there's so much good in this movie, I don't even care. Even if it wasn't the best, it was still a good movie. The only complaint I have is the "making of." It was not what I thought it would be, but it wasn't bad either. And the ending was really great. I just loved this movie. It is my favorite movie of all time. It is better than "The Shawshank Redemption." If you don't know what I am talking about, go watch it!

This film is so well done. The performances are very good, and the screenplay is very suspenseful. With the right actors you can make a very good film, and the cast here are very good. The film is not very violent but the violence that is there is enough to be disturbing. One thing that the film does not have is any sex or nudity. There are some nudity scenes in the film but they are too brief. Overall, this film is very suspenseful. It is not an action packed film but I would recommend seeing this film if you have an interest in romance and suspense. I give it a 9 out of 10.

If you've ever lived in America, you know a lot about the American dream and how it works. There's always been a dream of a higher plane, and that's what "the Book of Henry" is about. This movie was the perfect example of how not everyone in America is perfect and how some people have to struggle in order to get where they are. It's a wonderful movie for anyone who is at least half-American, or is at least a little bit American. It will also help you understand the racism and violence in the United States. It's a must-see. You don't have to be American to appreciate this movie. I've seen the film twice now, and the second time, I was shocked by how realistic it was. This movie was good, but it wasn't perfect. It's full of clichés, but the perfect film. The music in the movie is excellent. The cast is great. The cinematography is outstanding. This movie is perfect. It's an excellent example of how not every American is perfect and how some have to struggle in order to get where they are. I highly recommend this film to anyone who has ever lived in America.

To be honest, I have never seen a movie before that I so completely fell in love with it. I truly loved the story, the characters, and the direction. The opening scene and then the rest of the movie are so enjoyable. I hope there are more movies like this, I'm so much in love with this movie. It will not be too long before I watch it again! This movie is definitely something to be watched and it should be the next movie to be released. I'm so happy to say that I've found a movie that I could watch and then watch it again and again.

The Book of Henry is a powerful film. An Oscar worthy film, which is totally worth seeing, in my opinion. Martin Scorsese's directorial debut and his first starring role in a major film, which makes the film a cinematic experience that I haven't had in years. The cinematography in The Book of Henry is remarkable. The Film is always gorgeous and the film creates a certain atmosphere that is just right. This is what Scorsese is all about. In my opinion, The Book of Henry is one of his best films and will be his best film to date. The film has a great story that will have you hooked from the beginning and not let go until the very end. There are a couple things I would like to comment on the film. One thing that I didn't like was that it was kinda confusing and it was a little hard to follow the story. I also didn't like how the second half of the film was going on. I know it wasn't supposed to be, but I didn't like how the movie was getting too drawn out. The rest of the film was perfect, everything I could ask for. The acting in the film was really good. There were some characters that were amazing and did some incredible acting. I would definitely recommend The Book of Henry to anyone that is looking for a good movie to watch with a group of people. It's definitely a must see.

This movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life. As an actor, I felt I was there in the movie. I felt like I had no worries, and when the movie ended I felt the same. I have to say I was not disappointed. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in watching this movie.

I had the pleasure of seeing this film for the first time in full theater. For a period of about 3 hours, I was wondering what the hell was going on. And I never would have figured out how it all ended, if it was so captivating. This is one of the most significant films of recent times. It shows that the truth can be shocking and even shocking when it's not the truth. The actors are perfect for their roles, especially Oscar Isaac. I think the film is a little overrated, but the truth is it's a wonderful film, all about being a true hero, and dealing with the loss of a loved one. This is the movie that gave birth to the revenge thriller genre. But it's really more than that. It's really about finding your identity, and the ability to forgive and love again. Even in a film as touching as this one, there's still a definite message that everyone can relate to. I recommend this film to all movie lovers.

I loved the acting, the directing, the editing, the direction, the story. It was so good, but i also felt sorry for the characters, the fact that they lost their loved ones, who was looking for revenge, was a very sad thing. I thought this movie was very interesting. I recommend it to everybody, it is very worth your money, i just want to say that it is a movie for everybody. (Except me, as i didn't like it that much).

This movie is just an outstanding piece of art. I got into the mood of this film in the first ten minutes and I never looked back. I never write reviews but this movie is just an excellent story. I loved all the different details that were provided. The cast was great and the plot of the movie is just outstanding. I would highly recommend this movie. This is a great story about faith and hope and faith in the power of love. It is one of those movies that you'll never forget.

Well what can I say, this is a great movie. I watched it after seeing some of the reviews on the internet and for a movie that's about men being beaten by other men and the struggle of a girl to get her child back, to end in a very violent way was a great idea. And to give a further background of the characters would be too much, but that's not the point of the movie, it's about the revenge of two men who are very important in a society, and the strength of a woman. It's about the inner struggle of a child who's father is a drug addict, and of a mother who is sad and doesn't know what to do, and of a man who always believes that he is right. I liked the movie very much, and I recommend it to anyone who likes crime-drama, or thriller. But also to people who like to read a good book, and think a bit of other things besides the action.

Mark Wahlberg is the real star of this film, despite an early ending that is a bit abrupt. He's able to bring a lot of emotion and show the humanity of this complicated, yet likable character. Kate Winslet is equally good in her role as the Queen, also dealing with some very personal issues. Robin Wright is also convincing as a much older and wiser Elizabeth. There is also support from Corey Stoll as the Duke of York and Clive Owen as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The film is incredibly well-done, the photography is beautiful and the overall tone is dark and serious, yet with light and humour. It's no wonder this film is getting so many awards.

I found this film to be absolutely riveting. The performances were flawless, the cinematography absolutely stunning and the score perfectly matched the mood of the film. It is the kind of movie that you will talk about for months to come. It has everything a thriller should have: drama, action, mystery and great acting. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes a good thriller or thrillers in general.

This movie had me on the edge of my seat throughout. A man is thrown into a black and white world of his own making. When I walked out of the movie I could not believe that I had been so moved by such a simple story. The actors were perfect, the camera work was great, and it was just a beautiful movie. All the reviews I have read were right on, I was blown away. This is a movie I would recommend to anyone. I recommend that you read this book before you watch this movie, it explains everything, if you don't, you'll think you're missing something. This movie is definitely one that you will not want to miss.

I am an avid reader of crime fiction and don't like it when it's the same old crap and I want something new to be read. Having read "The Book of Henry" by Margaret Atwood, it was obvious that at least some of the reviewers would be like me, complaining that they didn't like the book. For those of you who don't know, this is a story about a book that the only person who ever read it, a young boy named Henry Crumb, who returns to his hometown, Red Rock, Texas, with his mother. The reason the author, Louise Erdrich, is in Red Rock is that he has been tasked to write the second book of his life. The book is the one that Henry has always wanted to read. The original ending has Henry being put to death, which the book was never published. In Red Rock, the town goes to war with the drug dealer, Manny, who is supposedly the only one who can read the book. Manny has broken into the home of the elderly, rich, and respected Henry's mother, and is now dead. Henry, on the brink of being executed, escapes to the town, knowing he has one shot at freedom. Before he can escape, he meets the girl he has always wanted to meet, Sandra, who has been studying in a college in Red Rock, and tells him she has her own ideas about what to write in the book that Henry has been asked to write. What Henry does is write the book. I won't say what it is, but it will become apparent that the book that he writes is the most important thing in his life. Then, he meets the girl he has always wanted to meet, Sandra. While I will not spoil the movie, it seems to me that the movie was just the first in a series of movies that were to be based on this book. The book was done by Erlewine and it was really good. The book is one of my favorite books of all time and I have been wanting to see this movie for years. I know people who have had the book for years and never read it, and I'm sure it would be great to see the movie. It's a great movie and it does justice to the book.

Watching The Book of Henry was like watching a movie. It's one of those movies you can't take your eyes off of. It's like watching the film and remembering the time it was made. I thought the acting was excellent, and it made the movie look like a story rather than just a bunch of images. The movie is also well made, it looks like a nice set of pictures. There are a couple of great shots, and the camera work in the film is fantastic. There is a lot of action and suspense, so I think that the whole audience was rooting for the good guy. I also think the movie is a great portrayal of the darker side of the drug world. It shows the people that are doing the drug deals to be nasty and not really caring about the money they make. They are just getting rich quick. They don't care about the people that live with them. So it also shows how greed is an animal that will kill anyone that they don't get their hands on. It also shows how many people are turned into animals by drugs. The way the drug dealers get their hands on the drugs is horrifying. This is one of the few movies that I have ever seen that is that good. This is a film that is very enjoyable to watch and very realistic. The characters are likeable and the acting is excellent. This is a film that I recommend you to watch. I give this movie a 10/10.
