I just saw this movie and here's my take on it...

I really wanted to like this movie, I really did. Visually stunning, with solid acting performances by Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, it's the kind of movie I would just love to endorse. Unfortunately, it starts out with tremendous possibilities but dissolves into a load of pretentious gobbledy-gook. It's the kind of movie where, if we were watching it at home, my action/adventure movie-loving husband would have just thrown up his hands and informed me that he was going to bed. As it was, he just shot eye-daggers at me half the way through the movie, which meant, "and you wanted to see this over Casino Royale?"

The bottom line is: If you love artsy-fartsy movies with lots of visual imagery that leave you pondering for hours the meaning of it all, then this is the movie for you. On the other hand, if you prefer action, adventure and/or humor with a solid, entertaining storyline, go see Casino Royale or Stranger Than Fiction instead. Or at the very least, don't take your husband <_< .

I really enjoyed this movie. I saw it the the theater and I have on on DVD at home. I tend to think this movie does play better on the big screen and with a good sound system. Some movies are just that way because you need "Feel" it emotionally. At home on a small TV with poor sound system, the emotion elements of the movie get water down.

Some people will love it, and other will find it pretty boring.

I movie fan\buff, so I like pretty all kinds of movies. I do have friends who will only watch a few types, like strictly action\block buster types, and when it comes anything serious, they have no interest.
