Koko, a Talking Gorilla torrent reviews

Allison F (ca) wrote: Can be a difficult film to watch at times. Ultimately, I disliked the fact that it focused so much on one person's story and not the overall theme of slavery. Sure *SPOILER ALERT* Solomon got his freedom back in the end, but what about the millions who didn't? Somehow this film minimized the slavery aspect for me which lessened the affect of the whole film on me.

Andrew E (it) wrote: This movie was a fantastic mystery with comic elements and a surprising story line. Thoroughly enjoyed the setting and the unfolding plot.

Jordan W (jp) wrote: a bit confusing at 1st but as the movie went along, the more intense, thrilling, clear, and amusing it got.

Amanda H (ru) wrote: This movie drags and is full of pointless nudity that doesn't add to the plot at all, but somehow it's still pretty interesting. I was a little annoyed by Alison Lohman's breathy, affected narration, and the ending was super predictable. But something about this kept me interested regardless of all that, and even though I'm not sure why, I mostly enjoyed it.

Matt C (au) wrote: The perfect companion piece to 'Bowling For Columbine' and 'Elephant', there's probably a case to be made as to how much each of those films possibly steal from each other but I'm willing to let it slide. This is really clever and never feels either moralistic or exploitative. A really well done mockumentary that leaves you feeling just plain sad it's that realistic and convincing.

Jared S (it) wrote: Total propaganda Rotten Tomatoes is a bunch of liberal fascists!

James B (nl) wrote: Okay so my opinion might be just as varied as the reviews. First off, I did enjoy this. Williams has always given powerful but realistic dramatic acts to films and that is a strong benefit here. The plot seems secondary to the world and character, which I actually appreciate. Morals of the story seem to include 1. Just doing what you want in life, even if it's wrong2. Acting better for the benefit of yourself and others, because they may remember you after they've gone3. Life for yourself, instead of using tv, books and work to escape itso I rather enjoyed the messages being sent in this film. I approve of the implant actually, but can see the problem with selectively cutting memories. The film has some problems in that it doesn't really live out the story arc for Williams, except possibly for his memories of another to make an impact on the lives of more people. Also the "code" of the cutters is a little misleading. It should be more cooperate like, more of a set of regulations and contractual obligations. So besides those points I did enjoy this film, it's like the mass effect games where the build up is better than the pay off, and that's the most noticeable flaw

Will Patton was pretty much the most interesting thing in this movie--as the meticulous Georgia cop--and he was quickly shoved to the side for more action sequences in exotic locales (Japanese bath house, Georgia Dome, gondola car atop Stone Mountain, etc.)
