My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The costumes, cars, sets and locations where it was filmed were perfect for the era. It takes a bit of intelligence to follow the plot and sub plots and I love a film that makes me use my brain to follow. As we walked out of the theatre, we discussed how it probably would not appeal to many of the young adults that make up the majority of today's working business class as they seem to have shorter attention spans and prefer plots that can be visually followed instead of plots that are cerebrally challenging and require you to listen to (and understand!) the dialogue. The theatre where we watched it did have on the subtitles which were helpful and a nice touch. I will see it twice!
Nice to see a film with an actual plot for a change. Muted brown colors combined with the excellent jazz sound track brings back memories of a similar film, Chinatown. I think the plot became a little confusing due to a needless number of characters introduced later into the film which in turn created unnecessary sub-plots. All in all a good old fashioned enjoyable night at the movies!
Everyone in the film with the exception of Jessica Lange and Danny Huston was ACTING! Totally unbelievable performances and a dumb script. Diane Kruger’s performance was amateur hour at best. Wanted to walk out of the theatre but I kept hoping things would get better. Save your money.
Just plain boring. Slow, no plot line, plot goes everywhere, ending is terrible... Not your typical Liam Neeson movie
Disjointed storyline, characters appear out of nowhere, the ending had no relationship to the story. They tried to have the ending be a "twist" but it came off as "what was that?" I like Liam Neeson but this was by far the worst movie I have seen in a long time. Don't waste your time and money.
A boring movie. Too many characters to keep track of. Liam is 70 years old and this movie, he really looks it.
This was a slow paced movie, but that's the way it's supposed to be given the era it was filmed in. It was a well done film and I enjoyed it.
Liam Neeson good acting more mellow part for him not the usual tense action. More of a mystery plot.
Hard to understand. Really dark. Hard to stay awake.
I wish they had subtitles because I couldn’t understand what the sentences were. I have always loved Liam Neeson in action rolls. Excellent cast! (Although, I would have used a soft camera filter for Jessica Lang.) All-in-all I couldn’t understand their spoken words; sounded very muffled like someone put a sock over the microphone at times.
At first, I thought this was a nursing home movie to test memory loss in stages: then it got more interesting as my buddy and I hoped that some action would unfold in Act III. Action did erupt in Act III, but not in time to save this private detective movie from going down the linear path in Acts I and II. For a movie that had loads of talent in the cast and crew: I guess the screenwriter wanted a nap movie. Except for Act III. It turned wild. The only thing missing was mustangs running through a Hollywood backlot. It was very relaxing. The acting was professional.
I admit I'm prejudiced when it comes to Liam Neeson but I really loved this movie - Neil Jordan has created a moody atmosphere, the music is fabulous & he does a great job in the role!
action film, can't go wrong with liam.
