  • Waste of time and money. Dont watch it
  • 3 stars The plot for The Beguiled was great as was all of the actors. However, I saw many missed opportunities to add depth and realism to the movie.
  • 2 stars Save your money. Watching paint dry would be more exciting. Just seems like another poor film choice for Nicole.
  • 2 stars Good actors but lack of drama, no depth of story, not sinister nor suspenseful. Boring. I expected more, got far less.
  • 1 stars Shallow boring storyline expect better from these well known actors would not recommend movie is a waste of your time and money
  • 4 stars Having seen the original from 1971, I was impressed how Sofia Coppola turned the story around to be completely from the women's point of view. The original was very Civil War soap opera with sexually repressed/demented head-mistress Geraldine Page. I found this new version far more interesting because it wasn't all bodice-ripping. It showed the slow-burn of the three sexually aware women all jockeying for the Union soldier's affection and attention. The question of whether what happens to him is done on purpose or truly to save his life is done on purpose. The audience is forced to come to an opinion and this changes the story at the end. I liked that the film was quick and to the point and although many thought it dull and boring, that's just a sign of the times when people want instant gratification and don't want to "think" about the underpinnings of a story. This film worked so well on so many levels, for me. If you're patient, give this film a try.
  • 4 stars The accents in this piece were all over the place..."southern" Australian, Irish.... it was a little embarrassing. Cinematography was lovely. Acting was good and the storyline was interesting as well. Probably not going to win any awards, but certainly worth seeing :)
  • 2 stars Sofia Coppola is no Don Siegel.
  • 3 stars It was OK, not as good as the original.
  • 3 stars I preferred the 1971 version. I found the photography so dark that I had trouble making out some of the details - like can someone adjust the brightness!!! I like Colin Farrell but Clint Eastwood really had it in the original movie.
