Thee Chad S (us) wrote: A really uninteresting story of a whiny, sleezy, neurotic woman who needs 'to find herself' after a traumatic break-up. Have you heard scene this plot before? Good, watch a better version elsewhere.
Peter F (ag) wrote: This Norse film is certain to strike comparisons with Coens brothers films (Fargo especially), but people should enjoy the film primarily for what it is: A heartfelt film about redemption, with a sympathetic and captivating performance from Stellan Skarsg.
David S (de) wrote: It seems like it might be interesting for 20 minutes or so, but then the accident happens, and all common sense and what little talent was around quickly disappears. In the end, this is junk.
Mara B (mx) wrote: Based on a true story, although some facts have been changed. I thought they should have focused more on the kids and their stories instead of a contrived subplot with Clark and a female love interest. As the real Ron Clark is obviously gay, I'm not sure why they felt it necessary to add that into the story. As a teacher, I could relate to many of the scenes and they seemed very real.
Brett W (mx) wrote: This film struggles a bit to find its balance, spending the majority of time setting the pieces in place (in a purposefully unclear manner) only to then have it explained to us by the red-suited exposition courier. Once the ambiguity starts to become tedious the story then attempts to cure it by making broad and opaque brush strokes that are meant to be open-ended, except that they don't really ask any questions. Paranoia seems to be a film about inevitability then. This is what is "going to happen". And so we end up with a wholly unsatisfied feeling at the end since the preceding was devoid of cause or consequence, just an invisible corporate entity and the cogs that feed it. Even Simon himself has no leeway in changing who he is or the makeup of his environment. Nevertheless, this film has enough going for it in the richness of its characters and set design to make this a worth while view for sci-fi fans.

Matteo L (us) wrote: Non vorrei permettermi di criticare un film che bisogna riconoscere essere un capolavoro, ma troppi tempi morti e alcuni tratti molto lenti compromettono l'attenzione dello spettatore. Peccato, meriterebbe davvero di essere visto con attenzione

Michael W (mx) wrote: Gang war spreads from unsanctioned ring fighting before sparse crowds to the streets with an old fashioned forbidden love story on the side. Gets a boost from Maria Ford, who is criminally not given co-starring billing alongside The Dragon on the box cover. The Dragon is game but seems out of place as a hospital intern and aspiring doctor. Another significant add to Imperial Entertainment's impressive slate of martial arts offerings.
Nate E (jp) wrote: Jaw dropping insanity. The gags come at you so fast that after a while you'll stop laughing and go into a sort of catatonic comedy shock. Not recommended if your name is Stinky Miller.
Robbie N (de) wrote: It was an okay, but I might have to go back and watch it again. It was little unclear, and the camera jerked around a bit too much too really get any of the war scenes. But Act of Valour is a energetic, thrilling and especially towards the end, and emotional and heartfelt movie.

Travis J (br) wrote: I just recently rewatched First Contact after seeing Beyond in theaters, and I must say, it's unbelievable how well the movie holds up. This could have been released today, and I would have still liked better than Beyond, and I loved Beyond. Not only is this the best film starring the next generations cast, it's arguably the second best star trek movie period, behind only of course The Wrath of Khan. Personally, my favorite character has always been Riker, but Picard, Worf, and Data all get a real chance to shine here in a way they just couldn't on the TV show, and the actors nail it. I must also complement Jonathan Frakes for his unbelievable directing job behind the camera as this movie was wonderfully directed, particularly the opening scene, which, in my opinion, is one of the most memorable moments from any Star Trek movie, and it immediately draws you in and engrosses you into the movie. If you are a fan of, not just Star Trek, but the sci-fi genre in general, this is a must see as it is an absolute classic!
