I so enjoyed this movie. The style is definitely reminiscent of older style movies, but I LOVED the dialogue! Great writing, interesting characters, and fantastic acting.
Dark humor, interesting story line and great characters
Enjoyed the movie very much. A very pessimistic topic explained in a witty way. Great movie!
This had an exceptional cast, especially Christian Bale, and it did not work. It was one of those quirky pictures that either work for you or not. For me not. Too bad. Margot Robbie looks fabulous I must mention, Wasted my time though.
Not even a cameo by Eddie Torres. What a waste.
I just submitted a good review but it came up one star, I meant it to be four stars.
I never listen to the critics so I decided to see this regardless of their negative reviews..glad that I did, it was excellent!
Horrible couldn't get into it at all. Just plain stupid.
2 hrs and 14 mins of my life I'll never get back
This is an amazing movie; that said, stylistically, this movie may not be everybody's cup of tea. It's a period piece (1930's); hence, it paces itself more slowly, deliberately, vaguely and viscerally (for the first half or so)--for some, it may 'appear' a bit scattered and random. At times, it feels almost 'noir-esque'. It's a bit of an off-beat mystery which starts off with a dead body of course, and people who have an interest in finding out what happened. The movie is based on actual historical events concerning politics, money, and elite level hijinks. It has appropriately timed character development for the people involved while it subtly serpentines itself toward a satisfying/illuminating finish--a finish that smacks hard of current day events and politics.
GREAT GREAT GREAT MOVIE
So many stars in this movie. Christian Bale was AMAZING. The premise of the movie was thought provoking. You had to actually watch and “listen” to everything that was being said to appreciate the entire movie.
It took about a half hour to realize what was going to happen. But once you “got it”, you couldn’t take your eyes off the screen for even a minute. Excellent acting and if you read at the very beginning on the screen “some of the events actually took place”. The speech at the very end was so touching. Again - great movie
Entertaining! Intriguing! Exciting! I loved the friendship trio.
Hard to follow plot and really overall bad directing Reviews were misleading with 5 star rating.
I must have thought because it had so many stars playing that this movie must be good. NOPE!
We enjoyed the movie! Christian Bale was great! a lot of good characters, that made the show very entertaining!!
Story was interesting and entertaining. I’d watch it again!
