Aya T (kr) wrote: Loved the action. I hope they don't re-make this into a Hollywood version and show this to the world as is.

Glenn S (es) wrote: Underrated. 13%! It may not be great, but it is quite good and reasonably accurate (aside from the fictional romance).

April W (ru) wrote: Slow and hard to watch- but educational

katsist (gb) wrote: Too dark and brooding. Ben Affleck does play the part of Matt Murdock well but Jennifer Gardner should not have been cast as Elektra. Their is a number of plot holes that I couldn't overlook.

Graham M (de) wrote: The basic premise is an intentional inversion of the usual slasher trope, but beyond that it's not really clever, scary or funny enough to stand out from other slashers.

Evan H (us) wrote: Doris Day in an over-the-top drama! It's totally unbelievable but fun to watch!

Mitch s (mx) wrote: Fantastic western from the brains behind the Ranown cycle. Angie Dickinson steals the show, as always, but none of the acting disappoints. Plot is great, dialogue is passable, could have been a classic but feels a little thrown together. Absolutely worth seeing, however, for the incredibly tense direction throughout the middle half.

Carlos C (it) wrote: "Suspension of disbelief" is an aesthetic theory that refers to the willingness of an audience to accept as true the premises of a work of fiction, even if they are fantastic or impossible. It also refers to the willingness of the audience to overlook the limitations of a medium, so that these do not interfere with the acceptance of those premises. According to the theory, suspension of disbelief is a quid pro quo: the audience tacitly agrees to provisionally suspend their judgment in exchange for the promise of entertainment.In the case of this prodigious film, it could have no image or no sound. The main idea is so thrilling yet simple, and the storytelling is so ingenious and original that you could be watching the story of a man looking for a pen with the same enthusiasm.

Bruce W (nl) wrote: This is real cornball stuff, but quite lovable. Jane Russell dressed all in black as an outlaw is a treat. All the old western clichs are skewered here, and some of the stunts are so completely ridiculous that you'll be snorting popcorn through your nose. There are a number of uncredited cameos supporting movie-biz insider jokes. Well worth digging-up. (I found it in a box set of 10 Hope films for $15, so I guess I paid a buck-fifty for it ... super bargain!)

Willian M (ru) wrote: I didn't find a terrible movie as many stated here. The acting is very solid and Johnny Depp portrayal of Willy Wonka is the highlight. The lesson taught in the movie is inspiring and heartwarming. Although it is not at the same level of the original film, it's a different view of it, and a nice one.
