Daniel Y (gb) wrote: A beautiful stop motion film that perfectly captures Niel Gaiman's story and style thanks to Henry Selick's masterful stop motion ways/techniques. Though many claim it's to disturbing or wierd, all I have to say to them is how is it not suppose to be if the story it's based on islike that, but I get it if this film isn't one's cup of tea.

James H (mx) wrote: Surprisingly good musical, and considering I am not a big fan of musicals, nor June Allyson or Van Johnson, it is remarkable I liked it. Great supporting cast, some really great musical numbers. Very entertaining.

Ola G (au) wrote: When his late mother, Kate (Melissa Leo), appears in a vision after her death and tells him to go to Bucharest, Charlie Countryman (Shia LaBeouf) immediately boards a plane across the Atlantic. But when he meets a fellow passenger, Victor (Ion Caramitru), an elderly man returning home from a Cubbies game, with a hat as a gift for his daughter. Victor dies sitting next to Charlie, who later sees him as a spirit asking him to deliver his gift to his daughter, which he accepts. Charlie finds himself simply with another promise to fulfill. Arriving at the airport, he meets Victor's daughter, Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood), whom he falls instantly in love with, a beautiful musician who plays the cello for the Bucharest Opera House. However, a vicious gangster Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen), has already laid claim to Gabi and is actually married to her, and her has no intention of letting her go. Determined to protect her, Charlie enters into the hallucinatory, Romanian underworld filled with violence and, strangely enough, love...Swedish director/actor/writer Fredrik Bonds "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman" (original title) is an atmospheric movie with the feeling of a music video or commercial (great work by cinematographer Roman Vasyanov) handling classic themes such as love and destiny. Compared to a lot of negative reviews I was positively surprised of the movie, even if it has some weak spots. I love the magic realism in the movie, its done in a great way, specifically with Melissa Leo appearing the way Charlie wants to remember his dear mother. Who cant relate to that? Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times wrote, "Pulpy dross of surpassing dumbness, Charlie Countryman takes the blender approach to mixing dark adventure, doofus comedy and pie-eyed romance, but forgets to put the lid on when pulsed." While Damon Wise of Empire gave a positive review, stating "Bond's use of music is excellent and his vision of eastern Europe both hellish and magical." I can agree to the fact that theres an unbalanced mix of comedy and violence that maybe doesnt always work, but at the same time its quite clear that Bond has been inspired of Scott/Tarantinos "True Romance" and "The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman" is not all that bad compared to its inspiration even if it doesnt reach the same heights. I personally think that Shia LaBeouf is quite good as Charlie, while Evan Rachel Wood is maybe not as convincing as she normally is. Mads Mikkelsen, Til Schweiger, Melissa Leo gives beautiful colours to the film as well. I love as well that Bond used M83s "Intro". Its such a great song that adds layers to the film. Trivia: Wood criticised the American censors for insisting that a scene be cut in which her character receives oral sex from LaBeouf, while taking no issue with the many violent scenes: "The scene where the two main characters make 'love' was altered because someone felt that seeing a man give a woman oral sex made people 'uncomfortable', but the scenes in which people are murdered by having their heads blown off remained intact and unaltered... [Society] wants to shame women and put them down for enjoying sex, especially when (gasp) the man isn't getting off as well... Accept that women are sexual beings, accept that some men like pleasuring women. Accept that women don't just have to be fucked and say thank you. We are allowed and entitled to enjoy ourselves. It's time we put our foot down." I couldnt agree more.
