I just finally saw it. I had ridiculously high expectations for the film and it surpassed even those. I'm pretty sure I made a thread about it awhile back...

Someone with search could do some sleuthing.

So glad you liked it, good. 2 people now have told me they disliked it, but most have enjoyed it.

Your avatar is prison Mike. That's great.

Saw it today. It's a very good movie, but a little short of a masterpiece. That said, I want to see it again. That's the kind of movie it is.

The Pink Floyd references are great. It also made me want to pack everything up and go live in the forest.

I just came back from seeing it. I absolutely loved it

I agree with what others have said about the phenomenal cinematography. Man, those continual hand held scenes shot with one camera... Wow.

Universal did not trust this film to do well in the States, so they sort of buried it here.

The battle scenes reminded me of Saving Private Ryan, but these may have been even better.

After some Googling, it looks like the DVD comes out later this month in the UK.


**mini-spoilers ahead**


I'd love to slow some of the scenes down, particularly the newspaper story headlines, and the scene at the cabin where the camera pans across articles written about Michael Caine's character's wife.

Speaking of the Caine character, I thought he resembled what John Lennon might have looked like if he were still alive. The round glasses were there, along the wiry hair. There's also a mention of Lennon in the dialogue.

the boyfriend and i went to see it last night and once it finished we were speechless, we just sat there staring at the credits. the film is everything i expected and a lot more, i've been anxious to see this it for a long time and i never imagined it would be this good. clive owen once again delivers an amazing & flawless performance, definitely on the top ten list of best actors around. Cuaron is one talented fucker, the visuals were breathtaking, beautiful, gritty & intense all at once. the movie had its fair share of suspense, action, drama, humor, symbolism, fear, darkness, hope, emotions. This film has now made its way into my top 20 list, which is a pretty competitive space since watching movies is one of my hobbies.

I would recommend this film to everyone because it's just that good but last night at the end of the movie a lot of people got up and I immediately heard people complaining about the ending, about it not making sense yada yada yada.

Oh my god, I've been anticipating this movie so much, and reading all the reviews and these comments is driving me nuts. I'm seeing this tomorrow night, and I absolutely can't wait. My expectations for this film are stratospheric. I have no doubts it will live up to and even surpass that.

That's a lot of pressure. I hope it lives up to most of your expectations....from the sounds of it, if it's even 1/2 as good as you anticipate, you'll still love it. Make sure to come back and let us know how you liked it....

Glad youl like it, Elevation2U! Clive's the man.

If anyone on here likes Clive Owen but has not seen Croupier.....go see it.
