The film deals with some weighty personal issues in the context of young girl's adherence to the rules of the Witness Movement but in an agonisingly slow and low key manner. Some might find it revealing. It certainly isn't a Witness Movement recruitment film. A good effort for what it is perhaps.
An old fashioned romantic film noir. Executed with English style and charm by a very good cast. A refreshing change from American cocaine snorting, in your face, comic book characters, special effects, sub standard dialogue tedium that seems to have popular appeal these days.
Based on a true story , this should have been as engaging as the many other mobster films, but it isn't! Disjointed, surprisingly low key too often, gloomy cinematics, lack of screen presence amongst some of the cast. Just about watchable,
Denzil Washington let down by an Inferior plot and dialogue. Becomes more predictable as the film goes on, one or two good action scenes though. I agree with others, not a patch on the original - why are sequels always so disappointing I wonder.
In truth this was a fairly routine chiller ( lots of blood btw) but it was well executed and given extra spice by allegedly being inspired by true events. Hope I'm not spoiling anything but I have to say the ending was a misjudged amateurish cheap shot.
A complicated plot might make it too much effort for some but it moves along at a cracking pace with plenty of twists and turns and plenty of action. I'm not from the cinematic comic book generation, neither am I some doe eyed teenage girl, this is how I like my films to be!
This film pales badly in comparison with the original. Poor story line, unenthusiastic acting. It just lacks freshness. I thought it was boring but some might like it for the songs and the sunshine.
Not perhaps the most complex of plots but nevertheless it was well played and the story moved along nicely. Not interested in whether historical licence has been applied, just enjoy for what it is, entertainment
Tries too hard to be an arty luvvie film. Tries to pretend it's clever when it's not. Tries to pretend that it's enigmatic when it's not. Too many over long scenes of total inaction.
Not the most originally themed story line but given some piquancy by being vaguely related to a true story. Helen Mirren once again showing what a versatile actor she is. Don't expect too much and you'll enjoy it!.
Well, I thought it was a dreary American drama and I hated the Coney Island setting. I wasn't impressed with the dialogue or the story line and I was deeply disappointed that Kate Winslet would sign up for this.
Doesn't do a bad job for a low budget movie of creating the fear and tension that must have been present. It's very limited in its scope however, narrowly focused on the desperation and fears a small group of hotel residents to the extent that the scenes became repetitive. Would have been so much better to have given time to the many other aspects of the terrorist action.
