The Monuments Men
Not nearly as good as hoped. Great cast, and a great story, but something was missing that made the movie misfire.
Cool story, unfortunately, it did not translate into an interesting film. A bit slow. The movie never gained any momentum.
Very poor overall- never really got going-I kept thinking it would get better but it never did. All the stars in this movie should be ashamed.
Such an interesting an important story, but I must say this was painfully slow and boring. Great cast but their talent was wasted...that was script and direction (sorry George but it was flat). It's a rental.
Vanilla plot featuring unremarkable acting and a pace like molasses.
Knowing that the Monuments men was 300+ men and woman from about 35 different nations the movie made it seem yet another USA version of how they "won the war."
Acting was mostly okay... John Goodman a brilliant character actor, Matt Damon capable of so much more and George well he's just in their league. Read the book to fully appreciate the risks these people took.
There seemed to be a whole lot of hollywood in this film...too bad as it could have been a real historical event for the younger generation...I guest money talks..Joannie :):):)
Poor directing, weak script. Movie had no debt. Nothing wrong with the acting per se because all the actors are veterans. Story is interesting but Clooney is no director. A guy like Spielberg would have made this a topper.
I gave it a 2. Barely.
Very disappointed. I read many reviews ahead of time, which I didn't want to believe, since the subject sounded so fascinating. Humor inappropriately mixed with a serious topic, very poor casting. Save your pesos for another flick.
I talked my wife into seeing the movie, I said you will like or I wash dishes for a month. Anyone have spare rubber gloves.
