Bernie M (fr) wrote: A decent thriller, well paced and I liked the setting. The acting from Neeson was of course great. The plot got a little dumb towards the end, and I didn't really like the big twist. The ending was solid though. Overall it was good, nothing spectacular.

I only watched this for the romantic aspect of it as a lot of the acting was not that great, the story lagged and didn't seem cohesive. Patrick this was not the role for you my man and what is up with a cameo of Val Kilmer? That was just weird. I did enjoy Joan's tiny part and Piper Perabo.

Kayleah T (ca) wrote: While Robin William's whimsical character can warm anyone's heart, the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire" did an excellent job of confronting taboo issues many families face in a way that was relatable for both kids and parents. Daniel and Miranda have been struggling in their marriage for quite some time now. A majority of the relationship problems this couple faces stem from Daniel's childish behavior and inability to maintain a job or help out around the house. When Miranda realizes the love she once had for Daniel is no longer there, she wants a divorce. Miranda is awarded full custody of the children and in a desperate attempt to see his kids more than once a week Daniel dresses up as an old English woman to get the job as the kids' nanny. While this movie shows the lengths both a mother and a father will go to, to ensure their child is being properly cared for and loved, it also helps children of parents who are divorced realize that their family is not broken and what happened is not their fault.
Dave C (gb) wrote: This is one of the better historical epics I have seen to date, although it appears little-known. The action footage remains some of the best re-creations of British redcoats in action since "Charge of the Light Brigade." I have heard some criticism of the film's creators over the fact that the costumes looked as though they were made of modern materials, not what would have been available to nineteenth century troops. True perhaps, but we're entering the realm of antiquarianism here. In fact, the script doesn't follow the historical record exactly - Melville and Coghill did NOT ride off with the 24th Regiment's colors together, but met up later, for instance - but still does a credible job of portraying the beginning of Lord Chelmsford's march into Zululand. Burt Lancaster and Peter O'Toole give memorable performances here, but my personal favorite is Bob Hoskins' Color Sergent, who takes a raw private under his wing. there is some real human drama in their comradeship and the growth of the young private as a soldier. The (rightly) sympathetic portrayal of the proud Zulu nation and of their King, Cetshwayo, is also a highlight of this film. I think this a much better treatment of the 1879 Zulu war than the popular sequel "Zulu" (actually produced years earlier). The first film took too many liberties with the main characters' look and motivations, and with the setting - Rorkes Drift (Perhaps I'm a bit of an antiquarian as well)!
Oliver N (mx) wrote: A thoroughly gripping horror flick, it lays the foundations for 'found-footage movies,' even with slightly weak narrative and flaws (which were built upon in future entries in the series). Strongest one so far.Verdict: B+

Rodney E (fr) wrote: Ultimately this lives up to the feel of a midnight movie with its tone similar to sci-fi of yesteryear mixed in with the 80's. Some of the effects are cool while others are cheesed out. Everytime I started to get bored something would happen. I almost feel like this could go along in a marathon of Night of the Creeps, Night of the Comet, and Invaders from Mars.
