Frank G (jp) wrote: Another Terry Gilliam film, the same loopy steampunk production design, and wasted actors in a poorly written, poorly directed waste of time. Gilliam seems unable to control a scene or find its dramatic point. The production design interferes rather than adds anything, and whatever theme lies beneath is missed often as the audience nod off.

Joo P (au) wrote: Jersey Boys is a mix of all and the same time is mix of nothing, a mix of a good cast with great songs, a bad mix of documentary and musical, a good mix of good production and some good performances, and a bad mix of weak writing and lack of developments of his characters. So the final verdict is that Jersey Boys is good musical with great musical performances, but could be a lot better, after all we expect always the best from the director Clint Eastwood.

Carlos M (it) wrote: While the dialogue is at times repetitive and even expository, the rather elliptic plot suffers from the fact that the protagonist remains a nearly inscrutable puzzle during most of the time - but by the end when her motivations are finally made clear, it all fits perfectly into place.

It brought the Mayan civilization to life, if in a negative way.One thing it does, which is perhaps unfair, is make the Mayan empire seem deserving of the fall that came when European conquistadors arrived.It's really about the struggle of one small tribe, in particular one small family, to survive against enslavement and murder by the Mayans.The story is told in a gut wrenching way, and it's very suspenseful, with exciting action.

Stuart K (ru) wrote: Directed by Mira Nair (Kama Sutra: A Story of Love (1996) and Monsoon Wedding (2001), adapted from William Makepeace Thackeray's 1848 novel by Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park (2001) and later TV's Downton Abbey). This is a sumptuous costume drama with an all star cast, and it's a period piece with an optimistic mood, but it does have a lot of colour and visual splendour to look at. Becky Sharp (Reese Witherspoon) was orphaned as a child, but spent most of her young life educated at Miss Pinkerton's Academy for Young Ladies. When she leaves as an adult, she goes to become a governess for Sir Pitt Crawley (Bob Hoskins), she becomes a liked figure in the house, but when Pitt's step-sister Miss Matilda Crawley (Eileen Atkins) comes to visit, she see's something in Becky, and invites her to London, where Becky's life changes for the better, first having a romance with Crawley's son Captain Rawdon Crawley (James Purefoy), a romance which turns a few heads with those high up the social ladder. It's got good intentions, and it's longish running time flies by painlessly, while Witherspoon does well as Becky Sharp, showing a more sympathetic version of the character than portrayed in Thackeray's book. Nair gets the best out of everyone, and despite an ever-so-slight lull in the middle, it soon picks up and is worth a look.

TonyPolito (gb) wrote: 1966 saw both Dean Martin (as Matt Helm in "The Silencers") and James Coburn here as Derek Flint on screen in shameless copycatters of the James Bond franchise, which by that point was an undeniably proven product through its four outings -- "Dr. No" (1962), "From Russia With Love" (1963), "Goldfinger" (1964) and "Thunderball" (1965). Ok, "Our Man Flint" doesn't have anywhere near the same bite as any of those Bond classics, mostly because it's missing any well-done action scenes as well as any whiz-bang gizmo-gimmickry. Still, it's interesting to watch, in large part due to Coburn's subtle and playful poking at the Bond franchise. When Coburn's handed a Walther PPK pistol - Bond's standard issue - he quips its outdated. And at film's fin, Coburn's too busy to take The President's phone call, not because he's snuggling up with the usual babe-once-nemesis now won over, but because he's snuggling up with HER AND four other women, his regular squeezes, all at the same time. Menage a CINQ -- top THAT James Bond! Maybe Bond needs a suitcase full of gadgets, but uber-spy-guy Flint only needs one: a cigarette lighter (that looks suspiciously like a classic Dunhill Rollagas) that does 86 different things - "87 if you count that it can light a cigarette" - which he uses to talk to HQ merely by flipping up the lid. And to think Bond needs to tote around all that complicated stuff just to phone home. "Flint" sends up Bond as omniscient Renaissance man by going over-the-top, by making Coburn even more omniscient than Bond; Flint's flying to Moscow for the ballet - not to see it, but to train the dancers. Viewed not as action spy flick but rather as sly satire, "Flint" is actually more satisfying viewing than the more slapstick send-up of Bond in "Casino Royale" (1967). RECOMMENDATION: One-spin recommended, when the mood for such strikes.

Freddie F (fr) wrote: A blunder on Hitch's part for this one. There's one incredibly awesome shot, but other than that the film is just largely mediocre. We're told who the murderer is early on, and the whole film struggles to create suspense set-pieces, but we're left lacking significant enough interest in the characters or the going-on's to really get excited. The whole thing is also punctuated but awkward attempts at comedy. Then, in case you aren't peeved enough, the very end reveals what the point of everything was: a two hour long set-up to a stupid one-liner. Perhaps if Hitch had made this film in the late 40's in lustrous black and white, and spared us the stupid gratuitous nudity, it might have faired better. But in 1972 it just comes off as extraordinarily tame, limp and disappointing, especially coming from such a well respected source.
