No, just no. This may be a movie to eat popcorn, get drunk at laugh at with your friends, that is as long as you don't care that it just took one hours and 18 minutes from your life to do so...

Manuel S (it) wrote: This is impressive to look at with tremendous attention to detail in every shot. Every camera movement is so painstakingly done that it seems they were planned for years. Too bad the same can't be said about the story which is essentially a soap opera which will leave wandering not just who but where is the love.

Jason C (nl) wrote: A film so generic perhaps a one-word review would suffice. To add some depth - the casting varies from wise (Costner as the recruiter/mentor) to the heavily flawed (Knightley as the combative love interest) but everything else is Hollywood-spy-drama-plotholes-ahoy by the numbers. The deepest mystery to consider is why Branagh directed it this way and, indeed, cast himself to play the ultimate Russian bad guy stereotype. Talk about a waste of talent (though my wife would add a star for Chris Pine alone).

Haley B (es) wrote: It is a Ken Loach film, so it is nothing less than brilliant. This movie has an extremely emotional story, and the performances really enhance that emotion. Loach really shows the audience how hard the life of a poverty-stricken family can be, and how important it is to stick to what you're trying to accomplish, even if your lack of money stands in the way. There was a problem I ran into while watching this film though...no subtitles. I did have quite a hard time trying to understand the thick accents of the characters. The thing is though, the performances are so well done that it really doesn't matter that you can't understand every word they say. Bruce Jones was really something; yes I didn't understand all the words he spoke, but his facial expressions, the way he walked, his interactions with his friends and family, and everything else got the message across. Great film, one of Loach's best.

K S (ag) wrote: Daniel Petrie gives a cynical portrait of a police precint in the Bronx in the film. The city looks as though it was carpet-bombed. We are guided through the rough, early 80's streets of New York by Murphy (Paul Newman), an aging cop on the beat and his young partner Corelli (Ken Wahl). The city is a jungle and we discover this through several, disconnected scenes that have little correlation with the plot. There's a scene where Newman delivers a baby for a young impoverished Puerto Rican woman that virtually goes nowhere. Pam Grier in a walk on role plays a murdering prostitute whom we follow for several scenes until she is killed off again leading nowhere and contributing little to the exposition. Ed Asner plays the new Captain at Fort Apache. He was affective but seldomly seen on screen. The most intriguing aspect of the picture is Paul Newman who clearly is the star of the show here. His choice to play this character was exempliary of the roles he took during this time period. Absence of Malice and the Veridct being obvious connectives. The idea was good but it was executed in a formulaic style which takes away from the picture which ultimately is held up by Newman's performance, the meditative view on New York and clever dialogue.
