I saw this last night and was a little disappointed---very slow moving. It IS a throwback to the old style spy genre though, but needed more pacing. I LOVE Gary Oldman but thought he was rather lackluster in this one & I don't get the hype for his performance. However, it was fun to see some of the cast that have been in Johnny's films---Stephen Graham(Public Enemies, P4), once again, had a small but important role, Toby Jones(FNeverland=Smee) had a key role. One actor that I've really come to like is Benedict Cumberbatch--he was excellent in his part and stars in the current BBC Sherlock Holmes mini-series(If you haven't seen this series, check it out--available on Nextflix streaming and I believe DVD)

Colin Firth did a nice job as did all the actors, but it just seemed to drag to a predictable conclusion. So, I can't say I hated it, but I think Girl With the Dragon Tattoo much more interesting as far as suspense.

Just my opnion...anyone else see it?

Donna thanks for the review I have heard that the film moved slow and read an interview in which C. Firth stated he was confused with parts of the plot-I hope Gary Oldman beats George C. for an Oscar but it seems to be "King George's" year. Anne r smile.gif

Anne it can be confusing as some parts seemed random, but made sense in the end. Definitely not a film that ;you can leave for a bathroom break tongue.gif I haven't seen Clooney's films(sorry, he just seems "one note" to me), but I don't think Oldman's character flashy enough to get the Oscar(just my opinion though) smile.gif

agreed.gif He plays the Hollywood game to the hilt. I'm sure he's a nice guy personally, but he seems to promote himself whenever possible.....

LOL Yes, he IS a master at the game. He's on the red carpet before the carpet is finished being layed out, and he's there until they roll it up again after the event. laugh.gif
