(gb) wrote: interesting movie about twin power and how they alternate other people realities and make them kill themselves. nice psychological movie!
(kr) wrote: Great movie. Really touching story about a man with rage that finds inner peace. Jackie Chan is classic in it with a small role.

Siis jatkoa Chen Zhenin tarinalle... 20-luvun Shanghaissa painellaan, japanilaiset ovat edelleen naapuruston paskamaisinta sakkia, kiinalaiset alistetuinta, valkoisia ulkomaalaisia ei kiinnosta hiukkaakaan ja Casablancassa (paikallinen discoteekki) shampanja kuplii ihan joka ikiselle & naiset ovat femmeja fataleimmillaan. Noiden kaikkien eri ryhmien kesken syntyy sitten kismaa ja paikalle saapuu naamioitu sankari, joka pyyhkii mattoja kaikilla tuhmilla japanilaisilla. Paljon actionia, paljon poliittista valtapelia ja paljon yliromanttista roskaa. Paska leffa, mutta Donnie Yen on aivan loistavassa kunnossa.
(br) wrote: A film that in my view was highly underrated when it came out in 1998. I think the reviews were bad because the film was basically over the heads of the mass public. The performances are good & the plot is all a bunch of metaphors for life. Basically the establishment in a conservative town tries to remake the troubled kids into right-wing loonies via the use of computerized type labotimies. This is all done in the name of the "greater good" for them. Of course it is all part of some extreme conspiracy, but the film is still very good. The film definitely has something to say about our post-consumerist culture in the late 1990's which lead us to where we are at now in our cultural malaise. It is about society's obsession with perfection, narcissism, & very shallow values. I also see the metaphor for cultural & media brainwashing in the film, where people who claim to have all the "answers" lead other unsuspecting dopes down the "primrose" path to destruction. The popular kids are all rich, conservative, & perfect. There is no room for independent thought where in my view our nation is already at. Happiness defined by money & a list of unnumbered wants & needs created by the consumerist crowd. The film is better than a lot of these kinds of films that came out in the late 1990's. I also thought it was a better film than the "Stepford Wives" which it has been compared to. The film is underrated but still very good with a large deeper meaning & way ahead of its time.

The magic at the heart of love. Shadowlands employes power through, Anthony Hopkins preformance, the amazing and biting script, and the dark shadows of love. "Why love if losing hurt so much. I have no answers anymore, only the life I have lived. Twice in that life I've been given the choice. As a boy and as a man. The boy choose safety, the man chooses suffering.The pain now is part of the happiness then. That's the deal."

(us) wrote: This is a great movie! Dick Van Dyke is at is comedic best in this film and the supporting cast is outstanding. I love old films and I watch them often and this is another great comedy. Opinions vary, but watch the whole film before you rate it and remember that this was filmed in 1967. It's a great film!
(ca) wrote: A rather biting comic satire, very well written and fine stylish direction. All the performances are fine, one of Debbie Reynolds and Van Johnson's best performances. Nice camerawork. Very well done in all areas.
