Mark K (es) wrote: It's always difficult to review something as large as this docu-drama from HBO. It's a successor to the much lauded Band of Brothers, but its a very different product, about a very different part of the Second World War. Those of us that grew up on a diet of romanticized war in Europe films will notice the difference immediately. There's nothing romantic or even honorable about the island war: That description belonged to the fliers and naval veterans of that theater. The ground work by the Marines was necessary, and I think people just can't relate to just how horrible it was. The focus was on just a handful of characters, and not all of them fought together, so it will seem a bit more disjointed than Band of Brothers, but taken as a whole, the tapestry of the island-hopping they put together is very effective. It avoids the 'big picture' of the Pacific War, and goes straight for the visceral and personal. You'll never look at canned peaches the same way again. Fine performances by all the actors involved, and the technical aspects are pretty amazing as well. It may just help you understand why the veterans of this war didn't talk about their experiences: because other than 'they did their part to win the war', there's nothing really good to talk about. Veterans (and my family had its share) limited war discussion to the food and their friends they made. You can nit-pick all you want about how it's not another Band of Brothers. It's not, but it tells the story of these (very) young men just as well. In an era where violence in films has become almost unreal, this brings it back to the ugly reality. It will also make you appreciate why war must be avoided, and the cost to the men and women that serve today. Recommended.

Pat T (de) wrote: After seeing this film in a shop and buying it because I'm a nostalgic fellow and it was literally my childhood, I rewatched and cried at all its loveable beautiful weirdness, flower phones and that bit with the magic railroad that means i get shivers every time i go through a tree enclosed path. I googled it, just to see what people thought of it and was shocked to discover that everyone hates it. I can't understand how a bunch of adults have decided, sounding somewhat begrudging, that "kids need cutting edge special effects" and therefore the film is bad. If you think this is a poor standard for kids these days, don't use it! As a child I loved this film for its charm and I used to think about it constantly: scared of its villain, enchanted by its magic and laughing at its humour. Maybe critics have just forgot to review a kids film through a child's eyes... For me, this film will always be a timeless classic.

Dann M (au) wrote: Full of mystery and intrigue, Ronin is an intense espionage thriller. The story follows a group of mercenaries hired by a mysterious woman to retrieve a briefcase, but when one of their own betrays them the mission is thrown into chaos. Featuring Robert De Niro, Jean Reno, Natascha McElhone, and Sean Bean, the casting is fairly good. The directing is also well-done, and creates an atmospheric tone that brings a lot of suspense to the film. Additionally, the action sequences are quite impressive, particularly the car chases. However, there's a level of ambiguity built into the plot that doesn't quite work. It has some weaknesses, but overall Ronin is a dark and provocative film.

Kyle W (es) wrote: The only reason why this one gets a 4 instead of 4.5 is because the story was a little lackluster compared to the rest of them in this series of the Godzilla films. But the action was there and the effects were spot on.
Mark M (kr) wrote: This movie will always have its place in history as the one that *made* the Astaire/Rogers pair. Outside of that, I don't think it was anything all the more special. In fact it was hard to enjoy the main love triangle plot because I kept wanting to see Astaire and Rogers dance more. Their Carioca dance certainly was memorable, it had a timeless smoothness that both made the other dancers look jolty and became their trademark style. Other little memorables: some scandalous, sheer dresses, Roger being mistaken for a gigolo, and the 3rd person "ghosts" talking about their desires. The airplane sequence was just weird and the whole American-boy-always-gets-the girl outcome was unsatisfying.

Robbie N (it) wrote: A very funny film, the mockumentary lay out was done very well and there were some hilarious lines. Perhaps this is because I went into this movie with low expectations, but Surf's Up really is something special, and yet another successful Sony picture. Approached it with hesitance, but couldn't help love the colourful characters, the ambitious story line and fantastic CGI.
Armando B (de) wrote: First of all Melissa George is so beautiful, and a great actress. The movie was good, suspenseful and creepy, keeps you on the edge, acting was believable the plot was not your usual scenario and was a nice change of pace. Great movie to watch. As that being said for this being a good suspense movie for a low budget film, I give " The Betrayed " a C.
