While I agree the movie was suspenseful and production values pretty good (in terms of close-ups, lighting, etc) for a 'scary movie', it had a strange, 'let-down' ending. While I wouldn't discourage anyone from seeing it, I suggest a matinee since it's a wee bit cheaper, and if you don't like the movie, you can at at least take comfort in fact that you didn't pay the full fare.
This an excellent article, yet there is one point for future consideration. When you work in this capacity at the Agency, you are a Case Officer and not an Agent. The FBI has agents and agents at the Agency are assets you cultivate. Just wanted to pass this along.
Wow. Really wrong about the melodies of this fantastic musical. I'm still humming them 2 days later.
I was impressed to find a reviewer who isn't a Hollywood sycophant. The movie was bad. The acting was the definition of over-acting. Found the final scene to be nothing but comical in its absurdity. Seems you've pissed a lot of people off by calling out the group-think.
100% right on. Bardem's performance makes this one of the best Bond films ever,
Kelly, dude, its as if you have ignored that fact that all this stuff, this "fake movie shenanigans" actually happened!
No, it's really not a far-fetched popcorn-patriotic flick at all. And, in fact, more than a little blame for the incident is laid on the US for harboring the Shah who had committed atrocities against the Iranian people. That aside, at it's heart, it's just a really good story. And even more remarkable because it's based (however loosely) on true events.
“The controversial new movie, “The Master,” is described as a forbidden look into the life of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of the Church of Scientology. Author Steve Hassan, of “Freedom of Mind,” spoke to the “CBS This Morning: Saturday” co-hosts about the movie and why it’s got Scientologists up in arms.”:

I prefer nice young Jewish actors like Logan Lerman, Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anton Yelchin, etc.
what this a review or not cause it sound like you trash the moive for no reason to me this was not a reivew at all it sound like someone just wanting to make fun of the moive like a jerk
"Texas Pity Twister"? Brilliant, Mr. Vance. Great to see one survivor still standing from the Express's glory days (whenever those happened to be).
Just suffered through this turkey and couldn't agree more with this review. I wasn't the only one in the audience to find themselves laughing at scenes not intended to be funny. There was no spark between Snow White and either of her suitors not to mention Snow's charge to the castle looked like bad Monty Python or something from Medieval Times. Waste of a perfectly good 2 hours.
