Movie Review by Martin
July 11th, 2009

Missed this at the cinena even though i realy quite fancied seeing it. Finally got round to seeing it tonight and can understand why peoples opinions of it seem to vary.

Ridley Scott is an excellent director and the main draw of this movie for myself, although the two main stars being Leonardo Decaprio and Russel Crowe add extra interest. It is actually the performances of the two leads who make the film a success. Decaprio plays the usual angry character that could of been taken straight from his other recent movies "the Departed" or "Blood diamond" (without the south African accent of course) while Crowe is also first class as the laid back pencil pusher of the films complicated events. The plot is quite complicated which i think is why this didnt appeal to everyone. Some parts are sluggish and there realy are alot of similar films to this around, although this should be ok for a quite night in as i took it, perhaps more suited to being watched on the tv than in the cinema.
