Kevin K (es) wrote: Proof positive that professional movie critics have a different worldview than moviegoers. "The Identical" is clever, poignant and entertaining, and ultimately uplifting and enjoyable. Part "Comedy of Errors", part "Footloose" and part "The Parent Trap", "The Identical" serves as sort of an alternative history version of Elvis Presley (inspiring a big "what if" about Elvis' twin brother who was stillborn.) But "The Identical" is not merely a copycat, it adds its own clever and imaginative twists and turns. The real mystery is the critics' scores here. They seem to dwell on inconsequential issues of minor characters and certain budget-limited scenes (though many critics have no problem ignoring such defects if the topic is some bloody movie about greed and depravity). My guess is that what really bugs some critics about "The Identical" is that it is about wholesome, honest characters in sometimes difficult situations, including a family that relies on their faith to get them through. That's sacrilege to a modern movie critic!

It's hard to watch.Half of a Yellow Sun is an interesting story about the Nigerian independence and the Biafran "experiment". It's relatively well chronicled and while not a history lesson, there is something we can learn from this movie. For me it was pretty illuminating since my knowledge of Eastern African history is pretty much non-existent. I was pleased and found the movie entertaining and intelligent.What this movie lacks is more depth with the crisis and more connection with the victims. The story is too focused on a relatively well connected and privileged family so their misfortunes, while real, at times feel a bit optional since they could have fled.In the grand scheme of movies, this is a middle of the road, more interesting than average but also largely forgettable adaptation from a book.

Matthew A (jp) wrote: Interesting premise, beautifully shot, poor performances and a weird dynamic between the older/younger kid which isn't addressed at all in the film. Visuals are amazing, but the performances allow it to fall flat.
Erik L (br) wrote: Undead-5/10:There were a few pretty good bits of action in this, but most of the characters were uninteresting, the story wasnt paced as well as it could have been, and the action scenes became repetative. It lacked either an interesting plot or the excitiement to take the place of a good plot. Lord Of War-7/10:Very good acting throught. The story was interesting and well done. The writing was also rather well done. However, the movie itself was much longer than it needed to be and I didnt enjoy some of the characters as much as I could have. Its a pretty ok movie. Not too bad, but not particularly good either.
