Monster's Ball 2001

From Amazon: The unflinching realism and searing performances of Monster's Ball are stunning in all the connotations of the word. Hank (Billy Bob Thornton) and Leticia (Halle Berry) inhabit stark, queasy realities of the contemporary South, he as a death row corrections officer and she as the soon-to-be widow of an inmate (Sean Combs) whose execution Hank helps conduct. In the aftermath of the execution, both lose their children to tragic deaths and they form an unlikely bond. In the hands of lesser participants, the fateful plot might strain credibility and seem tailored to allow for liberal sermonizing about the obvious wrongs of our legal...

Monster's Ball Movie Review by Derringer (12/20/2008)

I loathe these 'Change-Of-Heart' Movies. I really do.

MONSTER'S BALL has got to be one of the most loathsome 'Change-of-Heart' flicks that I've seen in a mighty long time.

Take, for instance, the despicable main character in MONSTER'S BALL - Georgia prison guard, Hank Grotowski. At present Hank is working execution...

Monster's Ball Movie Review by Bobby B (2/3/2008)

This is a ridiculous movie. The plot is offensive and the casting of Halle Berry borders on preposterous. Not that she's such a bad actress, she's not. But there are some things that can't be faked. Trying to sell Berry as a poor, Southern wife of a man who's been on death row for eleven years while she's been trying...

Monster's Ball Movie Review by Movie Addict (7/22/2007)

A dysfunctional family of Georgia rednecks. Pop and two sons who have spent their lives a prison guards. Pop Buck (Peter Boyle) is a hard case redneck whose wife left him by committing suicide. #1 son Hank (Billy Bob Thorton) learned his racist beliefs at pop's knee. The other son Sonny (Heath Ledger) is hated by Pop...

Monster's Ball Movie Review by Jesse (7/14/2007)

One of the greatest endings ever written. This film is highlighted by raw performances and a truly amazing original screenplay. This movie wouldn't work if there weren't such vulnerable characters which we could empathize with during the film. They all make some horrible decisions and they all have something terrible...

Monster's Ball Movie Review by Zara (3/12/2007)

Again, another example of a movie that was supposed to make me feel moved because a beautiful actress decided to get ugly. I never really understood why there was such a draw for that kind of thing. Then again, I don't understand why retarded characters are always considered Oscar worthy either.

The movie is slow and...
