The Leading Man

Successful playwright Felix Webb has a new play, 'The Hit Man', in rehearsal. Directed by his old friend Humphrey, it is already being hailed as a masterpiece; but Felix can't enjoy his success. He has fallen passionately in love with Hilary, a beautiful, fiesty young actress, and is preparing to desert his perfect family, his wife Elena and three lively children. His intolerable situation is further complicated when Humphrey casts Hilary as one of the leads in 'The Hit Man'. Enter Robin Grange, a charismatic young Hollywood actor making his London theatre debut. Robin is attractive, charming and dangerous, and soon inveigles his way into everyone's life. He ingratiates himself with the cast and, quickly grasping Felix's dilemma, sets about weaving his web of mischief. He suggests that if he were to seduce Elena, she would be distracted from Felix's affair, regain her self respect, and perhaps even willingly part from the unfaithful husband to whom she clings...

The Leading Man torrent reviews

Jason B (es) wrote: A good sequel, still based on Hong Kong martial arts history. Basically HK Rocky, with an exceptional fight with the aging master Sammo Hung. Now I can watch part 3.

Steven R (fr) wrote: Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back again, territory obtains federal status. In between there are some of the best songs broadway produced. For that reason alone you should watch it. But be aware that the characters are as flat as the landscape. The cowmen -v- farmers barn dance is a stormer but this is, of course, a dance-off between two stereotypes. If a bomb dropped on the entire town halfway through your reaction might be 'That's a pity' before going off to make a cup of coffee; but you'd still miss the songs.

Tim W (mx) wrote: Have they ever successfully made a cartoon into a good live action movie? I submit that they have not. This is no exception. It's crap and had none of the charm or humour of the show...or even the characters! It's like the creators hadn't even seen the show before slapping this soulless gimmick together. Also Brodwick is a hack.

Dylan D (jp) wrote: Heart-wrenching tragic story, with a deliberately hardcore backdrop. Does contain the strong prescence of the "hustler theme" but it plays on it further by developing individual interest and tragic romance. Much better than I thought it would be. I won't lie, I fell in love with it. Very sad.

James R (kr) wrote: A perfect example of why you shouldn't let Roland Emmerich remake a movie.

JJ M (gb) wrote: The word 'harsh' best sums up this culturally-evocative film. In many ways, the picture it portrays of Turkey at the time in the early 80s isn't exactly warm and inviting. But then again, that is a western perspective. Although the many significant instances in the film are pessimistic (the couple been shot on the train being a prime example), the enduring images are those of the beautiful landscapes, from the bustling urbanscapes to the snow-covered mountainscapes.

Joseph H (it) wrote: pretty decent,.not bad.crazy scenes.

Allan C (es) wrote: Remake of "Lassie, Come Home" but with a girl and her horse instead of a collie. Kindly farmers Ward Bond and Frances Dee are hit by hard times and forced sell their daughters beloved horse to a rich man who wants use him as a race horse. It's all pretty lightweight and silly, but I love Ward Bond and you also get to see a young Lee Van Cleef as an mean race horse trainer. My 4 year old liked it a lot.

Greg W (us) wrote: One of my favourites!! I live this quirky movie. Jay & Silent Bob awesome.

Jwee Chiek E (mx) wrote: An early film made exactly 40 years ago by prodigious and prolific Steven Spielberg. The young and talented Goldie Hawn delights us no end in this comedy that ended tragically. It is a true story. In the sprit of 'Smoky and the bandit', we are entertained by the crazy gun loving trigger happy midwestern culture and the over the top police force for mobilizing 100s of police cars and gun men in pursuit of a couple who just wanted to get to their baby. Goldie Hawn and William Atherton held hostage a young police officer, Michael Sacks and stole his police car. The film is mostly about the wild adventures of them racing across the country towards their destination Sugarland where the baby is cared by foster parents. By the end of the long chase, the hostage police officer experienced Stockholm syndrome and became sympathetic towards the hostage takers' plight and bonded with them during the long chase that ended an ambush. Poor William was shot dead. Goldie didn't get her baby and was devastated. Officer Michael Sacks grieved for his new found friends.
