Stephen B (it) wrote: This is arguably one of the most under appreciated films of the 21st century(possibly even in cinematic history). The opening sequence gets your attention right away and never lets up. The finale is not only action-packed and visually stunning, but it carries an emotion that is helped greatly by the score done by John Williams, and it sets up the events in Episode IV in a manner that works well, even though it may seem a little flawed. The script is fine, and Anakin and Padme seem to show more chemistry than in the previous installments through their dialogue, in addition to their overall acting. In a scene shortly after things begin to settle into the second act, the couple has a conversation that includes elements that foreshadow future events in the movie, which is done in an ingenious way some may not catch in their first viewing or if they are new to the series. The scene slows the movie down enough to avoid the story flying by too fast also, which helps the pacing problem of the first two in the trilogy be mostly nonexistent throughout the film. In fact, the best elements from this movie overshadow the few problems to be found.Altogether, a dark and exciting conclusion to the Star Wars prequel trilogy.

John M (mx) wrote: Violent and bracing in its final act, the first two are certainly more pedestrian in tone. This is a gutsy film, though, and the killer here echoes the sniper portrayed in the great "Two-Minute Warning" from 1976. Between the two films, we are confronted by two dispassionate, cold shooters who are driven by motives only they know.

Leon B (fr) wrote: Review:As I hadn't heard of this movie before and Costner's previous movies haven't been that great, I wasn't really expecting much from this emotional drama but I must say, I really enjoyed it. The performances are great and the witty script is full of drama right from the get go. Kevin Costner plays Elliot Anderson, who finds out that his wife has died in an car accident, so he turns to alcohol for comfort. The following morning he hides the alcohol bottles from his mixed race granddaughter, Eloise (Jillian Estell) and he gets her ready for school. As he doesn't know her regular routine, Eloise tells him what to do but he still gets lost whilst driving her to school, because he has never been there before. When he finally drops her off, he returns home to organise the funeral arrangements with his best friend Rick (Bill Burr) and his girlfriend Fay (Gillian Jacobs). Because Elliot is drinking, Rick takes Elliot to pick up Eloise from school, we're he tells her about the tragic accident. At the funeral, Eloise's other grandmother, Rowena (Octavia Spencer), attends with her large family and talks to Elliot about Eloise living with them but he's happy with the way things are. As Elliot struggles to help Eloise with her homework, he hires a tutor, Duvan (Mpho Koaha) to help both of them and he reveals that his daughter died whilst giving birth to Eloise. Elliot then finds out that Rowena wants to sue him for custody, via her brother Jeremiah (Anthony Mackie), whose a hot shot lawyer with high credentials. Elliot then pays Duvan to drive him around, because of his unhealthy drinking habit and he drives him to Rowena's house because he wants her to drop the court case. She accuses him of not wanting Eloise to know her black roots so Elliot mentions that she is going to a good school and she is living in a safe neighbourhood. He also mentions the problems that her son Reggie (Andre Holland) caused there family while he was addicted to crack, which doesn't go down to well. Jeremiah then convinces his sister to play the race card and he hires a black judge to take the case. After the initial hearing, Elliot keeps on drinking while Eloise is seeing a psychiatrist and starts to ask questions about her dad. Reggie then shows up at Elliot's office, asking for money to clear his debts in return for staying out of the proceedings, which will give Elliot a better chance of winning. He asks him to see Eloise because she has been asking for him, so she gets dressed up and waits for his arrival but he doesn't turn up. After another night hitting the bottle, Rowena's family turn up at Elliot's house to go swimming and Reggie sits outside, nervous to join them. Because Reggie didn't see Eloise the night before, Elliot confronts Reggie and he tells him a few home truths. Reggie then spends some time with his daughter and Elliot offers him $25,000 to get clean, which he takes whilst saying that he is off the drugs. Back in the courtroom, Reggie tells the judge that Elliot bribed him with the cash and later on that night, Reggie takes Eloise from Elliot's house. When the maid calls Elliot to tell him about the ordeal, he rushes to Rowena's to see Eloise playing the piano during a musical gathering and he can see Reggie smoking and drinking across the road. After a violent confrontation, he warns him to stay away from Eloise and he tells Rowena the true reason why he gave him the money. Back at court, Duvan tells the judge about Elliot's drinking and Reggie says his rehearsed lines. When Elliot takes the stand, he talks about the problems that he had with Reggie in the past and he's questioned about the time he will be able to spend with Eloise, when he goes back to work. Later on that night, Reggie turns up at Elliot's house, asking for more money and he pulls a knife on Elliot, which leads to a fight. After falling into the pool with a head injury, Reggie goes upstairs to get Eloise. He then sees pictures that Eloise has drawn of him and her grandparents and he sees some old pictures of her mum, which brings him back to his senses. He then goes back to the pool and saves Elliot's life, whilst constantly apologising for the way he treated Elliot's daughter. A week later, Reggie admits that he isn't ready to be a father and that he has to go away to get himself together so Elliot doesn't mention the alteration at his house. Rowena admits that Elliot has Eloise's best interest at heart so she also drops her charges. After a while, Elliot drops Eloise at Rowena's house because he needs a couple of weeks to get himself together but he still wants Duvan to tutor her and take her to school. A warm hearted film which covers some delicate matters! I personally didn't want the film to end and I found the chemistry between Costner and Eloise, touching. I'm glad to see that the movie made a profit because it really did deserve it. Great Watch!Round-Up:This movie was directed by Mike Binder who brought you Indian Summer, the awful Blankman, the Upside of Anger and Reign Over Me, which I really enjoyed. He really did put together a great film and he got the most out of the actors, so I have to give credit when it's due.Budget: $9millionWorldwide Gross: $21.5millionI recommend this movie to people who are into their dramatic movies starring Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, Jillian Estell, Anthony Mackie and Gillian Jacobs and Jennifer Ehle. 7/10

Jason C (au) wrote: All in all, I have to say that this is a movie that is well done and did not let dogma creep into the story line; which always seems to happen. Movie makers, of all kinds, want to push their religious and political views on us, but this movie stayed on point; it is about the freedoms that we are losing and the persecution that we are starting to see in this country. Unfortunately, this movie is something that I can see happening for real, if it has not already happened. When we see Muslims being praised, a New York Satan Temple pushing to erect a Baphomet statue at the Oklahoma capitol, our president saying "this is no longer a Christian nation", our president's degradation of the bible and saying that no one in Washington could keep the sermon on the mount, but calling the Koran holy; it is very evident where this country is going.I highly recommend this to anyone who is conservative. You have to be blind to not see what is happening in this country. It is a time to be weary.
