(jp) wrote: This movie was so very slow. Nothing original about this one folks. Nothing made sense at beginning and played out. Nothing but a few slamming doors and a few mind tricks. I've seen so much better for instance the film Mama. I don't recommend this film to any horror film fans out there. You'll be very bored and practically fall asleep with this one.

While the acting is really pretty impressive, I really wish the actors had been given more to do. I guess if nothing else, it serves to make you feel better about yourself because it can't possibly be as screwed up as these people are.

I've adored Ray Winstone's work since his early days working in the films of Sir Alan Clarke, and Ben Kingsley's always a treat. Watching the characters brought back such awesome memories of my teenage days, travelling throughout England and continental Europe in December, 1986, as well. We can't wait to hopefully check out 'Birth' later this week...This was definitely one of the best and most original British gangster movies since the likes of 'The Long Good Friday' and 'Mona Lisa' from that era...

(gb) wrote: Classic whodunit based on a novel by Agatha Christie in which 10 strangers are invited to a remote island off the coast of England by a faceless host only to discover that their assembly has a more ominous plan in store, as one by one they are murdered and point fingers at each other in a state of paranoia with no means of escape from the island.The idea has been done since, but nowhere near as good as this brilliant original, with atmospheric photography and sets, tense direction by Rene Clair, an array of brilliant performances and a story which always keeps the viewer second guessing.
