(kr) wrote: Not as good as Matt Damon's trilogy but still a decent action film. Some might find it a bit boring. Nevertheless Jeremy Renner's job is terrific. He carries the movie by himself all along.

(ag) wrote: The influence of Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino is obvious, but still it's an interesting look at this young man's get-rich-quick system.
(us) wrote: A visual feast, and zany story only Robin Williams could pull off. This movie is all about the need to stand up and fight for freedom if you want it. Kenneth Zevo, kind owner of Zevo Toys, passes away and when his children, Leslie and Alsatia (Williams and Cusack) are caught unprepared for the responsibility of running the company, operations are left to their militant uncle, General Leland Zevo (Michael Gambon,) whom Kenneth had hoped would give his kids a gentle nudge toward adulthood, and learning responsibility, and enable them to eventually run the company. Instead, the General and his son, Patrick (LL Cool J) begin a fascist regime at the plant, complete with black ops in secret labs, and making violent military war toys and remote drones. Leslie is forced to fight for his family and his workers and for control of the company, helping him finally become the man his father always hoped he'd become. The camera work, sets, and design are simply gorgeous, with bright colors filling the screen and bold shapes everywhere, and lots of evocative imagery... and the musical bits, composed and performed by the likes of Thomas Dolby Tori Amos, and Grace Jones, are catchy and rousing. While this movie may be an acquired taste for some, its great combination of eye-catching design, emotional music, and light-hearted approach to a very serious message are a wonderful vehicle for Robin Williams and Joan Cusack's excellent acting, both dramatic and comedic.

(br) wrote: Visually fine but doesn't offer anything new on an overworked theme. And a frankly squirm-worthy love scene in its extreme sappiness. One of those movies I saw in the theater and only made it to the end because we carpooled.

(gb) wrote: I can only concur with a fellow reviewer: "There are stretches when the film is as dull as porridge". And I have to continue there is hardly any other stretches. It last over 2 hours and one does get weary of the fields and dirt and scenes with nothing happening in them. True enough, the film reflects the soul and sufferings of the girl but by golly, it could have been done in a lot less soul torturing on the audience. And just when you thought it was the final scene.... no... it continued again. And despite all this, it gets marvelous reviews. We just did not get it. We were bored.
