(kr) wrote: A very rare and revealing documentary regarding Cuba's leader being conducted by probably one of the most engagingly antagonistic directors of his time Oliver Stone. Very well done and stimulating and was one of my highlights from a very strong year at Sundance 2003.
(br) wrote: This is one of the most touching and emotional movie I have ever seen. I loved Radio and I definitely recommend this movie. This movie gets an A.
(nl) wrote: There's an interesting concept here but it's under-utilized. It's pretty dull but still better than a lot of the other Scream ripoffs.
(ag) wrote: I have no idea why it took me so long to discover this little gem of a movie. Pretty much every scene from beggining to end has its own whimsical charm. I appreciate how it starts out already disguised as a buddy cop drama, then turns into a relationship comedy, then turns into a melodrama-tragedy. I appreciate how each character are subtly introduced and don't have to be explicitly explained. They come and go just by happenstance, but once they are together, you can't help but care for them. That said, the filmmakers may have have bit off more than it could chew. about 2/3 into the movie, I felt that it kinda 'jumped the shark', if it had sustained its tempo and story arch from the beginning without succumbing to its melodramatic end... it would have made for a better movie. That said, I appreciate its experimental quality and rather refreshing character driven stuff.
(jp) wrote: Despite the fact that the movie suffers from a bit of the outdated computer talk and the special effects are a bit overdone for simple scenes this movie actually does get entertaining. Crowe as the psychopath computer killer and then Denzel as the obsessed guilt ridden cop works very well. The action scenes, sometimes a bit slow, do eventually become immersive. Not the best movie but not the worst.

(ca) wrote: The story is the problem with this movie. It's well acted, for the most part. Mortensen, especially does a great turn as Ringwald's "husband". The rest of the acting is very good also. Unfortunately, none of the other actors really get anything good to say.The story is not very believable and way too melodramatic. Also, I felt like I would rather see a movie about the parts of these folk's lives that THIS movie skipped instead of this movie.Worth seeing once if you are a fan of Ringwald, McCarthy or Mortensen.
