Robert W (es) wrote: Good acting, kept us entertained without demanding our full attention. For a shark movie we liked it. Wouldn't watch it again, but I didn't feel like it was a total waste of time. Among the shark genre we gave it a B mostly for the good acting by Daryl Hannah and john Schneider who did a lot with very little.

It was no longer an escape, I kept realizing how many things were incorrect about the way they portrayed the city that I no longer was into the story.

James H (br) wrote: 5.5/10. Rather routine, the story is familiar. It's been done better before as well as worse. Sincere performances. It's a well meaning film, but it's nothing out of the ordinary and not very memorable.
Spencer S (mx) wrote: Detailing the lives of those in the Communist controlled GDR, "The Lives of Others" succinctly shows the humanism of those in the Stasi (secret German police). While most dystopian texts and films deal with the fight between the enemy (government) and the hunted (citizens) this film deals more in showing how all people were oppressed by this form of Communism, and the lengths this government took in silencing dissenters. It created a blatant, all-encompassing fear among its people as well. The characters have complex motivations for their actions: the playwright loves his country but is touched by its darkness when his friend is blacklisted, his girlfriend has a drug addiction and needs the help of a high ranking official, and the culture minister uses government resources for personal reasons under a veil of socialist reform. The transformation of the main character from a detached and yet passionate government worker, into a fully realized dissenter, is shown throughout the course of the film. The irony of the events, and the interconnected evolution of each character's feelings towards their country, shape the film's narrative. Much of this film remains gripping if not subtle in its depictions. Not only will you learn quite a bit about the operational exploits of the Stasi, but the true feelings of oppression exhibited by the main characters.

Kevin D (gb) wrote: Not always spot-on. Gordon is at his best in the satirical parts: as a foil to Gunton's end-of-days nut, and as an amusingly reluctant bus hijacker. Romanek shows some promise in this debut feature, but there are some technical problems going on: the boom mic that nearly clocks Amanda Plummer (repeatedly! ok, I exaggerate) in one scene, for instance.

Tony P (fr) wrote: Don't see the controversy surrounding it to be fair. Although it was shot (pardon the pun) some 40 years ago. Im getting old!Enjoyable movie. The revenge sub-plot of the central character Paul Kersey is a wake up call to both the anti-gun campaigners and the gun toting US citizens. Interesting it is directed by a Brit. A neutral in the debate that has raged for years? That director Michael Winner is now dead himself although he wasnt picked off by a vigilante.
