Ola G (au) wrote: Joe (Martin Compston), a mild mannered young man is bored by his London life. When his beloved brother is murdered Joe finds solace in Piggy (Paul Anderson), one of his brother's old friends. Piggy helps Joe to cope with grief, intent on saving him and helping him get justice for his brother's killing. As their friendship grows Joe finds himself in an increasing dangerous and murky world of violence and revenge. As Joe life collapses around him he starts to question who Piggy really is, and how honest he's really been with him. When Joe confronts Piggy a series of events are put in place that lead to a disastrous climax... The cover brags about a kinship with "A Clockwork Orange" and "Fight Club", but I would say it carries more a kinship with "Dead Mans Shoes", not saying in the same sentence that "Piggy" is close to being as brilliant as the former mentioned movies. "Piggy" sounded interesting initially, but we are served with a vague, partly provoking and at times way too static and dull movie by Kieron Hawkes. The problem is the character development that seems to be on standby and particularly the fact that you are not convinced by Martin Compstons acting skills. The feeling of going through life and not really living life is something we all can relate to, and that is an interesting aspect. And how would you react if someone in your family would be murdered? However, we have seen this sort of revenge flick way too many times and "Piggy" adds nothing new to the genre except a pig snout. The positive sides of the movie is Paul Anderson, an actor that fits for roles like this (Loved him in "The Firm") and Louise Dylan as Claire. A sweet looking and radiant actress. Love her bob cut hairstyle as well. "Piggy" is average and nothing more.

Ashley L (br) wrote: This movie had all the feels. Deep sadness, elation, fear, boldness, and great tenderness. I can't wait to watch it again!

Garry A (kr) wrote: Finally, finally a Denis Villeneuve film I love. I knew it would happen eventually. Pretty apt subject matter considering the global political climate too.

Stuart M (nl) wrote: A decent horror film that doesn't seem to want to be a horror film. Instead it prefers to focus more on the mystery and investigative aspects of the story. There is a supernatural element (believed in awfully quickly) and it lacks the irritating and cliched helpless victims of most horror films. Despite the title it's not really about a creepy kid tearing a family apart. It's closer to a haunted house movie. The changeling of the title refers to something completely different in a way I appreciated. Anyway, worth seeing but not enormously scary.

Gari m (nl) wrote: At the end of the movie you will be left with mixture of feelings. With very good camera movement specially in the club scene and long takes with the twist at the end of the movie that gives you a whole different view of the story."Time changes everything"

Ms Amanda J (ru) wrote: By the late 90s, Eddie Murphy's talents were starting to wear out on screen. Holy Man is long and unfunny, and I kept wishing Eddie Murphy would save the movie but that never happens. However, Jeff Goldblum has some funny bits.

Briana W (br) wrote: This was a very beautiful and yet heartbreaking film. One of the saddest I have seen. When I saw it as a child I understood the story but was hurt by how sad it was and didn't pick it back up for years later til' I was older and I could respect it more. I adore this film not as an adult but I myself would not recommend this film to young children just based on watching the trailer because it is very misleading. The story was pretty heavy at times and I think it's a wonderful family film but possibly an older family? Not little children. This movie is a perfect example of an animal movie that appeals to young audiences but then ends up being very sad. Today's example would be Marley and Me. Many people complained about that film not being what they expected when they took their young children to the theater to see it. I will keep in mind for the future with any children of mine to screen some animal movies before letting them see them because most animal movies I've come across are actually quite sad, especially this one. I really do love/hate it all at the same time because it's such a sweet story and yet it is the one and only film that is guaranteed to always make me bawl my eyes out towards the end of the film.Also, this movie had one of the most dramatic and heartfelt musical scores I've ever heard.

Lucas Y (kr) wrote: This totally rips off Rookie of the Year, but I liked it as a kid. Whatever happened to Jonathan Silverman? Extra points for a Lou Piniella cameo.

Bill B (au) wrote: Gave it a look as part of a double feature with the original film, had little or no charm of the first one.Pass, unless you're just a completist for the talents involved.

Shawn W (ag) wrote: Murtaugh and Riggs go toe-to-toe with a South African drug ring that has diplomatic immunity. Still an above average action film with a bit more comedy added to the mix with Joe Pesci. Kind of interesting to see how the South Africans became short-lived Hollywood bad guys when the Cold War neared its end.

Salim M (br) wrote: Amazing movie - the cinematography is just exceptional and the director takes on many different styles- also amazing how the story has so many different backdrops. In particular the NY scenes - from the initial excitement, the dark underground and the cold reality of the toughness of the city is all spot on. Soundtrack is also fantastic. The acting is beyond superb. A classic

Alex R (es) wrote: You jive with the jazzy style. It's smoking cool. You profess to the extremely romantic qualities of the French. And you leave it to Jean Luc-Goddard's imaginative crime thriller to break all the rules of the Hollywood norm. To captivate, and to shock, and to frustrate many, as it must have done, and done so well... What defines a movie? What defines an art form? And if there ARE any pre-conceived notion of what it means to make art in proper fashion- how the fuck can we shake things up??In Breathless, a petty criminal and bold lover, Michel, is chased and hunted by the Police. As he manages to duck, dodge, and hide under their constant watch, he plots to make his get-way to Italy. His situation gets worsened by the fact that he's just fallen in love with a beautiful young American girl, Patricia, who's determined to be her own woman and find a career in Paris, where the Police are hot on Michel's tail. He'll have to steal her away, and win over her affections, before he's caught on the wrong side of the law.Bold, daring, and highly creative. Breathless looks as though it could have been made yesterday, now; more than 50 some-odd years after it's initial wide-release. To imagine what it must have been like when it opened in cinemas... It must have been like a UFO sighting in western Kansas... or... It must have been Marty McFly doing Chuck Barry at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance in Back to the Future. Don't you GET IT? Jean Luc-Goddard time traveled audiences to a future of movie making that was as fresh, and new, and exciting as we've ever managed to make it. Now, certainly, it's not the greatest film ever made. There's a time and a place for such a film, and it wasn't in France in the late 1950's. But it DID manage to pave an extremely large highway in which all Directors and auteur's of the art-form could have the freedom to do things the way they wanted. Freedom to break away from the dogma of the Hollywood industry- that had dominated movie making for nearly 30 years. All of that just plain ended with about 90,000 dollars or Euro or whatever and in just four weeks that it took to shoot! The results speak for themselves. And for a History lesson on cinema and a just damn good time, I encourage you to see Jean Luc- Goddard's "Breathless" yourself, and see what you make of it. Ooh La La.

Tom M (gb) wrote: Absolutely gorgeous to look at, and story that can grasp the attention of both kids and adults.

Tommy H (fr) wrote: A very hard film to sit through to the end, but well worth it. This is the best performance by Brad Davis and I'm always amazed at how much some actors will go through to make a movie feel authentic. The one-sided nature of the film is a little racist, and I don't know what the director was thinking, but to me the film isn't about making the statement that prison is Turkey is too inhumane, but it's the a story of endurance. This could be a story about a terrorist being tortured at Guantanamo Bay and even though I disagree with the terrorist politically I would still be captivated by his will to survive, if he plays the role convincingly.
