(br) wrote: Wow, this was terrible. All I was expecting was some good action, and a decent story. Wrong. The acting was terrible. The writing abysmal. And the action wasn't very good either. To top it off, the final showdown was a joke. 2 guys beating the shit out of each other and barely a mark on their face. I guess they forgot to hire a makeup artist.

(it) wrote: I wasn't dissapointed. It really is a powerful and moving story. If you don't know any ASL, it's not an excuse because the writing cleverly slips the meanings into the dialogue, and Marlee Matlin is so fantastic, you get the general gist of what she is saying through her dynamic movements and facial expressions. You still have to pay attention to keep up, I found myself getting lost once or twice. The story itself can be somewhat slow at times, and there were a few times where the characters made such drastic changes and U-turns that I was like "shmeh, would they really do that?" But overall, a slightly older movie that is worth seeing :)

(ca) wrote: I actually enjoyed this film slightly better than the original overall. The story is more interesting and the characters are more relatable. Still this is basically a rehash of the first film but with Jason rather than his mother. Worth a watch for horror fans but nothing more.
(br) wrote: John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion were, at one time, two of the best screenwriters in the business. It doesn't mean they were always successful. Their script for "True Confession" is a smart and intellectual examination of corruption at the core of two of the most hypocritical institutions in the world: The men who enforce the law and the men who offer forgiveness for their sins. The idea of using two brothers to represent The Cops and The Catholic Church is a strong idea. The idea of trying to bring in the infamous "Black Dahlia" murder is also an interesting twist. The problem is that Dunne/Didions' script is so busy being "smart" and "intellectual" -- they forgot to add some wit, suspense or anything beyond endless chattering. Duvall and De Niro are both solid, but their parts are are so restrained by dialog that neither can find a way out of the box. It probably didn't help that Ulu Grosbard was given the task of the film's director. Grosbard was exceptional with character driven films. It must have seemed the logical choice. Sadly, despite all the "chatter" neither characters are truly formed. The brothers are more like talking ideas than fully-fleshed characters. It is interesting that RT shows the critics' rating as 73%, but if one actually follows "the fresh" ratings to the reviews, most of these critics did not like the film. ?
