Bruce F (de) wrote: Exceptional! Very moving and very funny at the same time. Great acting too: the best of France and Italy. If you want to laugh and cry a little, this is it!
Carlos M (de) wrote: This passable documentary (one of many alike), presented partly as fiction and with many interviews, is not too consistent but offers some interesting material, prompting us to realize the most probable result of our careless, destructive ways.
Matthew O (fr) wrote: The 44 Inch Chest story unfolds when a jealous husband and his friends kidnap his wife's young lover, seeking retribution for his wounded ego. The film is a darkly funny and confrontational drama about a wronged man trying to rebuild his self-respect, aided only by a motley crew of his old friends.A character study rather than a fully rounded film as such. A great full English cast and strong performances pull the film though.The story thread lacks any real drama or excitement, but the film is great at flexing its acting chops. John Hurt is especially grizzly and bad tempered, and Ian McShane is showing that he may of starting his film career late but is still a perfect character actor and sadly over looked.The script is solid and also unpleasant, the film grabs its 18 certificate purely over the foul language.Still and play visual set up of mostly using one location and great acting, is enough for its short running time and to see the best of British.

Matt M (jp) wrote: The on screen meeting between two of romantic comedy's habitual leads, bachelor figure Grant and girl next door figure Bullock, is hardly so memorable in this predictable film about an unlikely attraction between an activist lawyer and millionaire playboy George. The film goes around in circles and only the occasional wittiness saves this film.
Huw G (us) wrote: Not just a good soundtrack. Hard hitting, but gentle & very non-manipulative documentary, & all the more remarkable after seeing the DVD extras too.
Anthony V (gb) wrote: A ghost story with some deep metaphors about acceptance and sexual identity.
Scott K (de) wrote: Charming fable from Iran about 2 children who have to share a single pair of shoes to hide the fact that they've lost one pair from their parents. Great evocation of childhood and touching exploration of brother, sister relationships. Poetic, ambiguous yet satisfying ending. Good starting point for Iranian cinema.

Kim B (nl) wrote: A cute movie but seems a bit underdeveloped. Never really explains where or how the robots come about. What was with the villain? It seemed the movie couldnt decide whether he was bad or good and never really went anywhere with his character except flip flopping. I thought the old lady was delightful and well acted. I also really did enjoy the robots. A heart warming story about friendship and the underdogs coming togehter.

Tim S (fr) wrote: Just noticed that this film is in the comedy genre on Flixter. It is indeed a joke. If this film depicts 'true' masculinity, then something is very, very wrong. I hated the message that this film gives.
Daniel P (es) wrote: One of James Mangold's earlier films, Cop Land displays a highly watchable raggedness (call it kitchen-sink realism, or call it spotty) that seems rather realistic but incorporates every "bad cop" movie cliche you can think of; tells a compelling story but paces it strangely; often over-explains but sometimes leaves you filling in blanks yourself, too; stands the test of time but still looks SO 90s; shows a plausible slice of life in which you root for the little guy, but anchors it to a lead character (Stallone) almost implausibly inert, rendering him hard to truly get behind. The camera work is bad, and the dialogue is by times worse, but there's a feeling to this movie that can't be discounted--a pain in Stallone's character that somehow shines through. It's not a great movie, but it's not awful either. Interesting early work from the director of Walk the Line and Girl, Interrupted--but also of Knight and Day--and one that I liked just a little bit more than I disliked.
Donald W (it) wrote: This is the first of a group of Western Comedies made in the 1960's and 1970's that eventually brought to an end the era of Western movies. It was followed by James Garner's "Support Your Local Sheriff" and "Support Your Local Gunfighter", then Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles". These are all extremely funny movies. I first saw Cat Ballou on Television when I was in High School. Latter when I was in college the girls in Willard Hall at Oklahoma State rented the film to show in the dorm. This was just before VHS tapes came on the market. The movie was made in 1964 and starred Jane Fonda. This was before the Vietnam War got big and before Jane Fonda got political. She was young and good looking. Lee Marvin played a drunken gunfighter and won the 1965 Oscar for best actor. The horse he was riding deserved an honorable mention for helping him win. Most of the movie was filmed in Canyon City, Colorado. When my family took a trip to Colorado to see my relatives in Colorado Springs we went through Canyon City. They still had signs up telling the tourist how to find the sites around the town where they filmed the train robbery scenes.
