The Disappointment - Milk review by Titch

Spoiler Alert
05/09/2012

I believe Harvey Milk was a great man. A man who did so much in the little time he was an activist for gay rights. This film could have had a message to send to all who watches it, but sadly i must have missed it which is such a shame. With that all said the cast and crew of this film were great .

I wanted to like this - Milk review by PD

Spoiler Alert

The subject matter is worthy and Sean Penn does a great job at portraying a charismatic politician. I really wanted to like this but sadly the film just failed to get me interested. The director opts for far too many cheesy close-ups and the whole thing gets lost in schmaltz. This was a serious life-and-death issue (literally for some of the participants) and it deserved better treatment than this.
