Brad F (us) wrote: Wow. What a twisted film. Dark, disturbing and incredibly well shot and acted. A transformative performance by Jake Gyllenhaal that will chill you to the core.
David D (it) wrote: This is a fun movie. It is all about style and colorful characters performing in a very stylized manner in a very colorful fantasy setting. The story assembles a collection of classic tropes from western and martial arts films. The production design and visual effects are quite surreal and quite beautiful. The acting is very good with direction that is more choreography than direction. A very enjoyable and very offbeat movie.

Allan C (mx) wrote: Meh. So-so road movie about a pair of not so smart couples on their way to Reno. The strong cast, including Oscar and Tony award winning actors Billy Bob Thornton, Charlize Theron and Natasha Richardson, oh and there's also Patrick Swayze, makes the film watchable and manage to carry a pretty weak script. There's also David Koechner, Penlope Cruz and Tony Orlando in supporting roles, but the real problem with the film is that it's not just that funny. Kind of a sad coda for top tier cinematographer William A. Fraker ("Rosemary's Baby", "Tombstone", "Bullitt").
Augustine H (mx) wrote: One of the most beautiful movie ever shot with a memorable score. The story, however, is of bitterness and sorrow. It is even more depressing when one looks back can't even identify a blatant villain to be held accountable for the tragic ending. What's the point of pursuing vanity after all? Roman Polanski once again proved himself to be a great storyteller with the help from the flamboyant Nastassja Kinski. Could well be his most nostalgic piece.

Not only that a whole group of girls and a teacher go missing creepy, but creepy in general too. The cast they picked did a wonderful job, because everyone acts creepy! Everyone acted like they were guilty of something; which everyone is guilty of something. It may not have to do with the missing girls, but everyone has their secrets. All this creepiness was made even more creepy, because this was made in the 1970s and the film-makers used the old tactics of horror films a few points.It was creepy, but a good creepy. I really must find a different word, but the word fits this movie well. What do I mean a "good creepy"? Well, it made you want to keep watching and see what happens. Even though no real answers come about and if you know about the case there has never been an answer, but you feel like the answer is right there in front of you the whole time! So many theories are out there and the film-makers did a good job touching base with the majority of them. It's a film that makes you think even though it is creepy.I do remember a side-line story that didn't seem needed in this. It seemed unnecessary and a stretch and it annoyed me. Oh yes...the ending also bugged me. I can't say what happens, but it bugged me for many reasons. In the end, this was a creepy movie. The actors they picked did a great job! There were a couple spots that seemed slow and/or unnecessary and the ending bugged me, but I did enjoy this movie. It really makes you think. Boyfriend and I had talked for a few minutes about what we thought happened to the girls. It is SO crazy that they literally vanished and no bodies ever where found. Creepy. Out of five stars, I stamp this movie with....4.Favorite Character(s): No one reallyNot-so Favorite Character(s): The headmistress (what an idiot and arrogant woman)Re-watch?: Actually, I wouldn't mind a re-watch.
Nasu N (it) wrote: I've read the book before and the movie does a decent job into adapting the book. This film is a good teenager love story that manages to give off enough enjoyable parts that will make you laugh, and it has enough heart to touch you. The film also manages to bring in very important themes that adolescents can take away from.
