(it) wrote: I viewed this at the 2011 Cleveland International Film Festival. Character driven drama about a young man (Pistereanu) in a desperate situation. With a slow deliberate pace we see that he is coping well with life in a detention center, but for ambiguous reasons his mother makes him lose his focus on good behavior and he starts acting out for special privileges. Strangely he creates a hostage situation with the girl student he has developed a crush upon. Is it an East European art film breaking the cliches of Hollywood fare? Or is it a puzzling tale with vague motivations and something lost in translation?
(nl) wrote: A decent movie with Cuba Gooding Jr in the main role. Story follows troubles on the border between US and Mexico with gangster etc. There have been many movies about the border and this one stays on an average level. Watchable..
(jp) wrote: S'inspirer du giallo et des slashers crits par Kevin Williamson, c'est une belle chose et c'est trs honorable. Mais si c'est pour en faire Promenons-nous dans les bois, mieux vaut revenir aux bases du cinma, avec des plans corrects, une direction d'acteurs un tant soi peu travaille (voire caster de bons acteurs dans ce cas-l) et surtout un scnario qui rpond une logique, aussi biscornue soit-elle. En l'tat, le film de Lionel Delplanque est quasiment insupportable, tant les dialogues sonnent faux, le suspense y est absent et le sentiment de terreur totalement absent. Un vrai navet.

(ag) wrote: One of Chan's best films, less from a martial arts perspective (the fight scenes are good, but not spectacular) and more from a stunt-driven action scene perspective. The climax involving a helicopter, a train and a motorcycle is some of the best stunt work on film. The teaming of Chan with Michelle Yeoh is inspired. Maggie Cheung is Chan's girlfriend and Kenneth Tsang is the main villain ... lots of 90's era HK goodness.

(it) wrote: Epic guns and surf, bro. This original Point Break has more enough adventure to fill up two movies. Swayze has a great sophisticated charm in this that juxtaposes well with Keanu Reeve's Bill & Ted leftovers. Too long, but a good ride none-the-less. Rating: 7 / 10
(gb) wrote: Like its theme song, both very, very dated and very, very timeless. One of the earliest templates for a raft of idealistic-teachers-gets-off-the-rails-kids-back-on-them films. Even more resonant after being a teacher for similar teen brats. Poitier is typically magnetic. Love the exterior London stuff too.
(au) wrote: Giving us one of Al Pacino's best performances, Serpico brims with the frustration and anger of its protagonist, ripping open NYPD corruption like a bag of chips. Most of the characters in the movie don't matter; they are meshed together into one big, sleazy, corrupt, blob. This was Lumet's intention, as only Serpico, his friend Blair, and his colleague Green are given individual attention. No matter what he does, Serpico seems to find more corruption, and he increasingly becomes angrier until he finally snaps. The pivotal scene after getting back from the mayor's office is the best and most important part of the movie by far, where Pacino really shows his true colors as an actor, and Serpico shows his true anger. A classic like this will remain timeless, especially with all the symbolism and raw emotion it possesses.
