Ashley H (it) wrote: Extraordinary Measures is a decent film. It is about the efforts of John and Aileen Crowley to find a researcher who might have a cure for their two children's rare genetic disorder. Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford give great performances. The screenplay is good but a little slow in some places. Tom Vaughan did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture.

Mike C (de) wrote: I usually like movies where the smart guy, for whatever reason, never really makes it as far as maybe he should have. Good Will Hunting is my favorite movie, and Reign over Me is another fav of mine. This movie falls along those lines but does not come close to the aforementioned movies. Franco directed two movies before this but no idea how big they were. Credit to him for co-writing, acting, and directing this. It's pretty busy on the direction end. Perhaps in time, Franco will lose all the nonsense and just tell the story. The manic camera work and weird colors were annoying to me. Other than that, I just didn't like the brothers. Franco's guy always reminded people how smart he was. The doctor was not quite believable and I hated his voice. And I like to learn a little about people in my movies. This one is pretty shallow in that regard with little to offer.

Emily A (fr) wrote: Interesting adaptation with a contrasting mixture of overly formal, artificial dialogue in grimy, beaten down surroundings. Similar to Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet but not as lame (or not as pretty but also more layered, I think). The movie was kind of all over the place but the dynamic between Keanu and River was beautiful and sad, and the inexplicit nature of the sculpture-like still shots for the sex scenes were intriguing and added to the feeling of falseness and shakespearean beauty in the bleak circumstances. Sort of. That wasn't consistent really but I think they were trying to do something similar with it (maybe?) It could have also been a fluke that just gives off an air of innovative experimentation, but I'm kind of giving it the benefit of the doubt. The fact that Keanu always delivers his lines in a way that sounds totally fake worked really well here luckily!
