(gb) wrote: A brilliant satire from a brilliant director.
(ag) wrote: I really appreciate this entertaining movie with an uplifting message!
(br) wrote: Once again, we are confronted with a film with a story lacking in credibility and dialogue that is cringe-worthy at best, and yet is extremely enjoyable from start to finish.
(gb) wrote: The best part of this movie was not the naked ladies or the fabulous forties hair and fashion but Judi Dench's performance as the humorously frank Mrs. Henderson. Bottom line: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
(ru) wrote: pretty good until the last half hour which completely sucked and made about as much sense as a japanese horror film. The guy who played Yash (Zayed?) was phenomenal and sexy as hell.
(jp) wrote: Very good performance from Michael Pitt.
(de) wrote: I have no idea why, and am ashamed to admit that I love this movie.
(fr) wrote: Dark comedy. Very dark comedy. :)
(au) wrote: This is a great film that deserves to be 100% rather than 37%.
(de) wrote: (Warning: slight SPOILER ahead). Character is a film with first-rate storytelling. What I'm growing to love about European cinema is the great trust and respect that it (usually) shows to its audience. Plots are engaging, character development is just sufficient enough to grab one's attention, and much is left to the imagination. In Character, for example, we don't really know why young Katadreuffe's mother is the way she is (it's simply her character) or why his father does what he does or doesn't do what he could do (it's something in his character). As for Katadreuffe himself, we have some idea of why he wants to be a lawyer, but we don't really get a sense for what drives him to pursue his education so tenaciously; we sense that it has something to do with his father, but even then we're not really sure. Still, even with all these questions of "character" we aren't left missing the plot or the concluding point that it is Katadreuffe's character ("moral quality", in this use) that seals his innocence. All told, Character is a well-crafted and engaging film worthy of one's Friday night.

(nl) wrote: A bit slow to start, but eventually suspenseful. The interest lies mainly in James Cagneys energy and Richard Conte??s ambiguous interpretation of a German agent.
(nl) wrote: Innovative for it's time, Wiene utilizes intriguing sets and color filters to create one of the first truly erie film settings. Applause.
(us) wrote: I gave it three minutes but it seemed nothing but a jock movie glorifying war, racism and sexism.
(au) wrote: This classic landmark of huge advance and innovation in animation is an amazing roller coaster that blends so well a lot of entertaining adventure and delightful humor, while its main strength definitely lies in the endless charisma of its unforgettable characters.
(br) wrote: Excellent. The "Locked & Loaded" documentary included on the copy I watched was interesting as well.
(ca) wrote: This had a chance to be a great film, but it was let down by totally removing all emotional connection the viewer would normally have in a boxing film. The two fighters are portrayed badly. The "Iceman" is basically an asshole. You really don't want him to win and you don't believe in is story of innocence. Monroe isn't much better. You don't get to know enough about him to give a dam if he wins or looses. The film also lacks a training montage with awesome music! Worth watching to see Snipes punches. They just look lethal.
