Seems like he's been around forever, and still hasnt gotten his due credit. I really like him.

One of his best performances was American Phsyco. He was also the young boy in Steven Spielbergs film "Empire of the Sun."

The film opening on Friday is supposedly drastically different from the one that played in Los Angeles & New York on Christmas (which I saw). The length has been trimmed about 15 minutes, and from what I've heard the relationships between the characters has been strengthened. I'm betting it's going to be a lot more accessible to the general public, but I'm sure there are many who will still find it boring as all hell.

Personally, the original cut was my #2 film for last year (right behind 2046); I found it to be a breathtaking film, and the kind you don't see too much of anymore. You have to go in with the mindset that you're not seeing a standard plot-driven movie, but rather going on a journey to another time and place. Let the images and narration wash over you, it's magical.

Thanks, I am hoping to see it Friday, or some time over the weekend. I am looking forward to the escape from reality for a few hours.

I thought it was a beautiful movie, hypnotic in many ways - visually, the narration, the characters

It is definitely not action packed and if you're tired you might start to nod off like I did but it holds your interest in other ways. The guy leaving in front of me said "boring, boring, boring". I think many people have such short attention spans these days that they can't get into a movie like this.

I thought it needed more Christian Bale (he's barely in it), but for me the most amazing presence in the movie was Q'Orianka Kilcher-wow, she is something else

I think the focus is definitely on the romance, but the romance can also be seen as an allegory for the historical aspects - it was in the review I read in my local paper.

Both Christian Bale and Q'Orianka-Kilcher were Fantastic. Colin Farrel performce was better than the other crap he has been in.

Visuals again stunning for a Terrence Malik Film.

i have to agree
with your anaysis

I am not big fan of C Farrel
but this is the film I have liked him best in


and Terrence Malik films are all about the visual and atmosphere
and less heavy on plot and not typical action film.

a very good film
not for main stream action fans.

I've been looking forward t seeing this, I remember seeing the trailer way back when I saw Ray in the theaters...I for one am a fan of Malick at least from the movies of his that I own : Days of Heaven, Thin Red Line, & Badlands. Each is exceptional in its own unique way, and visually sensational as always. I'm hoping to really enjoy this movie, since it's been a while since I've seen something great in the theater.

A coworker complained about this all day...saying how it dragged with the nature shots, there was hardly no action...it was amusing to me cause this is what you have to expect from Malick ya know?
