(potential spoilers... of an 18 year old film ahead) The whole film is building to a double disaster, a small meteor that'll cause a tsunami killing lots of people, followed by a massive meteor that'll kill everyone! (apart from a select few who'll need to live underground for 2 years?!) So you wait the whole slow slow film for the disaster and the first rock hits, and then out of the blue they figure a way to avert the second. So loads of people who accepted their soggy fate from the first need not have died, because they didn't bother to get to safety because they'd figured they'd die anyway. So what's the message? "You know how we said you'd definitely die from the second rock, so avoiding the first is just prolonging the inevitable, well, don't listen to us, we don't know what we're talking about, ah well, our little whoopsie only needlessly caused the death of millions, our bad!" The ending is so rushed, I was shocked when it ended. Which considering how slow the film is, it's unforgivable. It's like they blew the budget for the last few minutes, so they have to pad out the preceding 2 hours with tedious melodrama. But it's about the characters some might say, well the film gives the viewer absolutely no reason to have any emotion invested in those characters. Yes they have families and lives, who doesn't? There's so little characterisation and they're all so forgettable and largely unlikeable that I was happy when most died and a bit miffed some survived. If that's what the director was going for, then job done! (just to note, this director was never given a big budget movie again). Another aspect that makes the film feel rushed seems down to editing, note Frodo from Lord of the Rings and his annoying girlfriend riding away from a tsunami on a dirt bike (yes you read that right), cut to the next scene, they're on foot?! I asked my kids "when did they get off the bike?" the reply being "they were on it, then suddenly they weren't?". Worse still it looks like they had a nasty crash, totally missing from the film?! Oh, and having barely been able to outrun the 200mph tsunami on a bike, they somehow manage on foot?! Also Dougray Scott pops up near the end, as if he's a major character that's been featured throughout the movie and has a relationship with the intensely dislikeable Tea Leoni, but he wasn't in the rest of the movie? Cutting room floor perhaps? This feels like a 3hr movie edited down to 2, but they chopped out the wrong hour. Disaster movies have been done much better before and since this film, so check out those instead. When a film makes the guff Michael Bay spews out look OK, you know it's bad!

I was intrigued with the plot, especially the dream of moving to Paris. Tonight when I watched the movie again, I found the gamut of the emotions disturbing. I think that the story conveys a profound message, not only significant and relevant in the 1950's but equally in the 21st century. The feelings that the movie evoked in me were as if I were on a slide...from highs to lows. I found the very last few minutes very painful. Nonetheless, I think that Revolution Road to be a brilliant movie with equally fantastic acting of Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet and Kathy Bates,
(es) wrote: Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis are awesome as always, even though the rest of the cast are mediocre at best! Love the noir tone, and the suspenseful moments kept me invested in the world of this graphic novel adaptation! The weakness of this movie, unfortunately, is the story, The Big Fat Kill. I didn't care about that group of hookers, and Rosario Dawson annoyed the crap out of me! And this is Jessica Alba's best film, though it's not saying much, since she's a horrible actress.
(nl) wrote: This is a fun little heist film, which takes a while to engage the audience, in part because of some rather bizarre introductions. It's a parody of sorts of director Jules Dassin's original heist caper, Rififi, but the actual heist is worth waiting for, as the tension is quite...well, intense. A very self-conscious film, with bizarre (to modern audiences) elements that pays off in the end.
(de) wrote: I'm a fan of theatre turned into film, although some do not work as well. This is one, but it's better that this story be preserved on film as a 6 out 10 than not at all (especially considering it's under exposed subject matter). Fawcett converts many who wrote her off as a bimbo. It's not that difficult a part, but she still had to nail it.
