I agree with all the reviews below, it was so boring!!!
This one is over-hyped and way too long. The acting is good but the plot is a snorefest and I couldn't wait for it to finish. A chore to sit through.
Too long, and not funny as the ads would have you believe. Acting is good but the story drags. Can't understand why it's up for Oscar nominations.
Meh! It was one of those movies that just appeared pretentious. The dialogues were pretty much whispers and philosophical statements, with a bit of drama and tension interspersed.
While I did... Read more sit through it to see what the movie was all about, I finished it thinking it wasn't really that worth it. 1.5 stars.
Great movie JLaw was perfect i love her she was so beautiful in it and i loved her hair. I really want to meet her one day. She seems so cool and laid back. In fact i would like marry her. I also loved... Read more Christian Bale he was funny and so good as a conman. I also loved Amy Adams she was very sexy. The cast was amazing. Deniro even shows up for a minute. I loved this movie. 5 stars.
This movie is a comedy and a send up of many movie conventions that borders on satire. Humour is not a strong point of Kiwis unless it is signalled strongly and can be translated into a recognisable... Read more language. Watch the actors. They know what they are doing and they're enjoying it. Watch Amy Adams (Who wouldn't?). Serious it ain't.
To be honest I didn't get more than 20 minutes into it before I gave up. It was so borrriinnnng that I didn't want to waste any more time on it. Somebody gave it 3 stars so it must have had something... Read more. And if the acting was good (as others say) then it must be a) the director and b) the writer. But I was interested in the subject to start with and it managed to turn me off.
Pretty much after the opening exchange between the main characters, you know that this is going to be a overwritten, talky mess. I guess they're going for that Scorsese riffing, but it falls flat. Everybody... Read more gets to play dress-up and overact, but the bizarre plot never really gets going. Bale seems unsure what his character is meant to be feeling, his performance is flat and confused. De Niro lurches out of nowhere about halfway through and gives everybody an acting lesson, apart from that, I just wanted it to end.
I enjoyed the movie a lot, mainly the actors involved helped. Good twist at the end.
yup - agreed with review's below, definitely didn't live up to the hype, and was a hard story to follow...was quite boring and un-interesting. Loved the costumes though!
