Disappointing. I turned it off after 1 hour which was 20 minutes too long but kept hoping against hope that he would get on with the story. I realise Scorsese was trying to make a point about the excesses... Read more on all levels leading eventually to Belfors demise but the excesses just went on and on and on. I was bored.
The first Scorsese movie I have found boring. It's far far too long, and I fast-tracked through quite a few scenes. The problem is the central character: he is without much depth or complexity and we... Read more are reduced to voyeurs of a sensational story. That's OK for 5 minutes ... but not 3 hours. We witness an incessant barrage of unbelievable excesses and the result is a numbing sensation. I simply didn't care. Good performances - although not the best from diCaprio - with a couple of outstanding cameos from Lumley and McConaughey.
Not for us. A couple of pom pensioners. It dragged on, Not very entertaining. Lots of bad language. Not necessary in our view. Switched off, couldn't watch anymore.
DiCaprio has honed his career playing strong often sadistic or damaged individuals. I didn't notice the length as the story moved along swiftly although it sometimes felt like a series of vignettes... Read more with so much to tell within that time. Very entertaining with a large cast each with their own tale to be told, although this is not for the prudish.
busy movie, good characters, but was way too long. got bored and had to watch it in two sittings.
Not my cup of tea. It is a long movie and it goes in detail in all the party/drug stuff. I am the only one in my friends circle who did not like Leo in that role. His acting was good but he does not... Read more fit roles in the age group 20-30 year old anymore. He looks older - a minor thing i know...
I MADE myself watch the whole movie - a mission! The almost obscene excesses disgusted me. I'm wondering why I gave it a star at all!
Martin Scorsese has made some brilliant films, but this isn't one of them. The production design is spot on, and the film recreates the era perfectly, but for all the fuss made about shocking scenes... Read more of sexual depravity - I thought it was extremely tame. It's adolescent, but nowhere near enough fun. Irritating.
Absolutely hilarious. Despite the length of the film the pace was maintained nicely but might not have lost much if it was 20 minutes or so shorter. All the same I loved it and would watch it again... Read more, in fact, I think I'm going to buy the Bluray.
Loved it, very enjoyable, Since I'm in selling it made me hungry to sell.
Bit over the top and pushing a cool factor but still a good watch.
