The cast are all strong, especially the lead actor, and each does their part in bringing plausibility to the film. Like Total Recall, Inception, and the Matrix, this film will have you thinking about the relationship between the mind and reality, and will pose questions that keep you thinking after the film has ended.
Grant H (ru) wrote: Pretty bad movie. It progresses through just like its predecessor, pretty slow, way too brutal, and no coherent plot. It really picks up in the last 30-45 min, making it almost decent, but the fact they also thought it would be suspenseful or funny to kill a bunch of kangaroos and a dog really just killed any hope for it to be decent, although it does deliver a perfectly creepy performance from Jarratt.

Jessica L (nl) wrote: Who knew that in such a short amount of time I could care for the characters, have suspense built, be absolutley terrified, AND at the end of it feel like it had a strong enough structure? Pleasantly surprised, if 'pleasantly' can be the right word. Totally horrifying. Well done.

Allan C (ru) wrote: I was probably not this film's target audience, but decided to watch because I do like Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. However, this film was basically "Now and Again" except the girls are witches. I probably would have liked the film if it were sillier and less dramatic and angst ridden. A good cast (Stockard Channing, Dianne Wiest, Aidan Quinn, Evan Rachel Wood and Chloe Webb) is wasted on a boring and at times annoying script.

Kelly S (gb) wrote: This definitely had a made-for-TV vibe, though it has far more violence than would've been allowed in a made-for-TV movie back then. I think it's mostly the cast and cinematography.Ironside is definitely the best part of this movie. Also, his leather tank top.

Richard S (jp) wrote: Claude Rains and Paul Muni are just wonderful in this.
Michael S (us) wrote: Blue Like Jazz is one more movie I find critics opinions utterly useless. Blue Like Jazz is a honest hard look at religion and the difficult truths in life. Donald Miller is one of the most impressive authors I have ever come across. His writing is true and honest. His words aren't always appealing but they are true. In every book I have read by him I end it with questions and a lot of time thinking. This movie does a fantastic job of taking the memoir styled book and translating the hidden truth and beautiful philosophy into film. I have met Donald Miller and his struggles are laid out so straight forward I feel as though I had known him for years. His books give a screen into his life and because of that you feel like your having coffee with the guy, not watching a memoir of a hard time. This movie is utterly phenomenal and a great film from every side.

Matt B (kr) wrote: Solid film by Shane Black and performances?? by the entire cast. The sound and picture editing were sharp. I really liked the throw back snappy tone of this picture which perfectly balanced action and comedy. Here I thought the director was incorporating his leathal weapon movies with a mix of something retro which in my opinion worked for a film that could have failed. Risky in deed this story was but a solid director and cast made this film fun, new and exciting. I highly recommend this movie it's all around good especially if you have good sound unit for your TV nice guys will be a great reason to turn them up.
