In the meantime, we're treated to a feast of stunning visuals. I went into this movie knowing little, and no direct narration is offered until a few words displayed on-screen at the end. These words offer information that elevates the meaning of everything we've just seen. On top of that, the movie is a stunning piece of cinematography and sound. These are basically the only two devices used to tell pretty much the entire story as it unfolds for 100 minutes. We hear characters speak in ways that offer us information which contributes to the story, but that is not to say they are ever really directly telling us the story. There were some times when I was a little confused about what was going on and frustrated by the filmmakers' steadfast refusal to directly offer us information that would help us understand. I do understand, though, and I even did as I was feeling frustrated, that the decision to absolutely refuse to offer the audience any other information than what is there to be captured by the camera and the microphone has purpose. And in fact that decision contributes to the emotional impact of the film's finale. This is a gorgeous film, a touching tribute, and a precious American historical document.
Faisal A (ca) wrote: This very well-acted, often amusing and dirty-minded hard-R film still stands out in a sea of market-driven blandness. Inspired by the reputed experiences of the film's producer, Middle Men casts its protagonist in a suspiciously flattering light. Far from a classic and won't tug at your heartstrings, but it manages to be captivating from top to bottom.
Robyn M (mx) wrote: As always taut screenplay and cracking dialogues were the hallmark of the film, like any other Mamet movie or play. During the course of the film I couldn't help but wonder at the raw intensity that Mamet manages to bring to his films. I have not been able to pin point so far, but I do see parallels between the protagonists of his earlier film Spartan (played by Val Kilmer) and Redbelt (played to greatness by the ever brilliant Chiwetel Ejiofor).Overall an amazing film and Mamet fans won't be disappointed.

Jonathan M (nl) wrote: Looks like it was filmed with a handy cam with no adjustment for brightness. Half of this movie couldn't be seen. Including the creature. Only one scene was worth watching, it is the scene where one of the teenagers gets torn apart. It's just interesting and a little distrubing. Other than that, nothing is saving this movie.

Roxsy T (ru) wrote: Don't get me wrong. I know I only gave it two and a half stars but I do really like this movie. It's cheesey, it's corney, it's boring at times, but this is one of those movie that to me is so bad it's good. Some parts are pretty funny but it is in no way scary unless you were already scared of Clint Howard to begin with.

Jonathan R (us) wrote: Supposedly a bit of a classic, but it was pretty rubbish...not a bad story, but it's dated really badly...lots of blood and a mutant version of Morph...
Denis M (ca) wrote: This film is a bad joke. John Garfield was due to play the role and he died. The film is such a superficial attempt to look at drug addiction that only simple-minded critics could possibly think this film is good. Morphine addicts do not act like Sinatra did. The book is a poetic look at mid-century America told from the viewpoint of the forgotten. The film is a worthless piece of trash that exploits Algren's great novel.
Chris H (gb) wrote: A solid story of survival featuring a strong performance from Christian Bale and gorgeous cinematography.
Sam N (ca) wrote: Movies don't get any better then this in my mind. Everything in this movie from the action to actors to story and characters is amazing. Best movie ever as far as i'm concerned.
Pat C (fr) wrote: Basicaly a reunion movie of sorts. The characters from the original Trancers return in a weak rehash of the original. Tim Thomerson and Helen Hunt save a weak script. Nice Poster!
