Godzilla torrent reviews
(es) wrote: Hm, this movie follows a path the viewer is not expecting, at least I didn't. It wasn't a good choice in my opinion, because in essence, the initial path until that moment, the first half of the movie, was an entertaining and interesting one. The character built-up was short, but effective, and the acting from both main character Robert (Martin Donovan) and loser Gus (David Morse) was very good. The mentioned choice for a no-win stand-off with the police instead of an interesting fling and movie idea with a hollywood hottie was a poor one. Sure, it had it's positive moments as well. For instance, it was at least a concious choice which the movie put all their effort in, leading to good and thought- provoking acting scenes. However, the police stand-off choice predominantly had a negative effect on the films quality. For instance, the many phonecalls that interrupted the whole thing and thereby the lacking the physical contact between those calling characters made it all feel a little fake and made-up. The worst thing: we didn't get to see what kind of relationship Robert had with his old flame or what his family meant to him. Nothing of that anymore, just a hurt wife and worried ex. Having said all that, I really need to say this movie was entertaining and good, just not an exceptional one.

(es) wrote: Cliched but heartfelt film about a small town coming together to make a champion of the town and it's speedboat. Jim Caviezel gives a heartwarming performance as Jim McCormick the speedboat racer who overcomes his personal fear to lead his team and town to its first and only speedboat racing championship. Cliched at every turn yet Madison has enough heart to overlook all its shortcomings.

(ru) wrote: Based on true events of Grigoris Lambrakis in Greece, Costa-Gavras has crafted one of the most haunting and involving political thrillers. With the masterful editing and the rhythmic music score, the horror of mob rule, the absence of the rule of law and corruption from the top is well revealed and force us to ponder over the right way to protect the democracy we have obtained formidably. (How the hell would the crap police have been hired in the first place?) However, the film will not be a classic without Yves Montand and the steadfast Jean-Louis Trintignant.
