Will Ferrell makes and breaks this movie all at once according to everyone who's bothered to rate or review this one. I enjoyed it but it clearly could have been executed better, but everyone involved had fun.
John S (ag) wrote: The peculiar structure, wire-fu, and bad CGI may get to you but the phenomenal story, great performances, and superb fight scenes will as well. The Kung Fu God that is Yuen Woo-Ping has taken his classic Chinese Wuxia style and brought it to the 21st century. Being his first film of the millennium, True Legend is a movie of over-the-top myth and magic with outrageous fight scenes and choreography. It may not be as good as his best, but the fight scenes are still a joyous wonder. The magical storytelling takes the film to epic proportions (literally). The mix of Wuxia fantasy epic and 70s Chinese kung fu madness with electric cinematography and thrilling effects is simply glorious. Crappy CGI and cheesy wire fu may hamper the experience, but it works well with the fantasy themes. The story is quite the tale. If you are unfamiliar with the story of Beggar So/Su but familiar with the character, it is an utter delight to learn about the myth and legend. The three part structure is rather odd at first, it feels like three different movies strung together. It is easy to misconstrue it as sloppy writing, but when you understand the classic three-part structures of wuxia novels as being more like three individual serials, then it works very well. Overall, True Legend feels like a modern Yuen Woo-Ping film that still stays true to its roots. It may not be perfect but it's still hugely entertaining.

I'm glad to see a film depicting the harsh realtiy of the partition and what the women went through with the exaggeration that often comes with these kind of films. Often in Indo-Pak theme films either side is the bad guy and histirical facts are thrown out of the window. It could have done without the songs as well (mainly because I can't remember a single one) as the story itself was so powerful. Definatly worth watching.

Akash S (fr) wrote: In a near-future eugenics-based world, where one's genetic superiority defines their ease of success in society, Andrew Niccol's 'Gattaca' explores the story of two men who have been affected by it; too much was expected of one and he succumbs to pressure, and nothing much was expected of the other and he tries to go against those expectations to achieve his dream. In this hypothetical gene-discriminatory society, the film's essential theme is of one's value and destiny; whether we define it or someone/something does, ultimately, it's upto us.The casting is good, and the acting is commendable. Though it's a science-fiction film, it didn't need any special effects to explore its themes; it made use of the well-designed sets and captivatingly-coloured cinematography.The ideas explored in the film are intriguing and thought-provoking, but other than the lead character Vincent, whose description would take five sentences, other characters' descriptions would take just one. Especially, Irene (Uma Thurman), of whom we get to know nothing. Most of the movie is a cat and mouse chase, with characters dancing around the lines of morals and ethics, not that it wasn't entertaining.Overall, it's a film which is firm in its stand against discrimination, and inspires people to against all odds to fulfill their passion; an interesting sci-fi parable about destiny.

Zachary M (br) wrote: Long before the modern think pieces on reality TV we get an insightful tale about how television and mass media was/is corrupting people's minds and how they think and feel. The idea that a person's desperation is being exploited must resonate with so many of us. Well trust me, if you get paranoid easy, maybe avoid this, because it will validate how you've always felt about the mass media.

Jim H (us) wrote: A woman discovers that she has a brain tumor and falls in love with her doctor.When viewed vis a vis Ikiru, Akira Kurosawa's brilliant film, Dark Victory has a lot to learn. The film posits that a patient's knowledge of his/her condition is detrimental, but Kurosawa is wiser, and the ruminations on mortality and life's usefulness are more poignant and inspiring. Though its embrasure of love, marriage, and romance feel petty against its betters, Dark Victory is a good film in and of itself, propelled by a great Bette Davis performance and George Brent's soulful gazes. Davis is delightful, and the film is saccharine in all the right places.Overall, you should watch this if you can't get a hold of Ikiru.
