Ryan G (br) wrote: This has been a few years in the making (I watched a few scenes being filmed what seems like eons ago), and I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Great, nuanced performances by the whole cast, it's beautifully shot in Philly and Lebanon, and there's a terrific score by Matt Pond PA. I'm very proud and happy for my friend Ben and his terrific movie. See this!

More importantly, this radiantly beautiful film is a much needed reflective mirror for us to view the history of immigration of 'foreigners' into America at a time when the very mention of the word 'borders' is a political fuse. Writer/director Emanuele Crialese has given us not only a deeply moving story, he has also provided a touchstone for viewers to re-visit the history of each of our origins: with the exception of the Native Americans, we all entered America as 'foreigners' at some point in our histories, and it is humbling to view this film with that fact in mind. Few of us understand the strict rules and harsh treatment immigrants face (or at least faced at the turn of the century on Ellis Island). Golden Door presents the case for immigrants' struggles in a manner that not only touches our hearts but also challenges our acceptance of current immigration legislation. But all political issues aside, it is first and foremost a film of enormous beauty, exquisite photography, deeply felt performances by a huge cast, and a very sensitively written and directed story. The use of cinematic fantasy moments only enhances the message of dreams of those whose lives in other countries fell short of the miracles expected in America. Antonio Castrignano's musical score is fascinatingly creative, using folk songs, contemporary music, and old tunes from this country.

Kurt Russell played the late Herb Brooks very great. The story behind the Miracle on Ice taught me to never give up and to keep on going through the toughest situations. Great job, Disney!

Of course, I was destined to like it because of my devotion to Audrey Hepburn and to Ben Gazzara and to New York City, around which the movie was shot. I admit that it is flawed; it can be slow and laxadasical at times. It can be a little implausible and hard to follow at times. It tries to be the kind of farce that Bogdonavich made using San Francisco as the backdrop, with What's Up Doc? It does not come, remotely, close to being what What's Up Doc was; and yet, if you take it as a separate entity, forgetting that the director is the man that did What's Up Doc and if you look at the film on its' own merits, you will see something unique. There is a commaraderie that this cast of characters has that makes them a family. They drift in and out of each others' lives and days in a way that, I have found, New Yorkers do. I am not certain if it happens this way in other cities because I do not live in other cities. I only know that the people in this movie are the people I see every day; and for that reason I relate to them and I love them. Then, of course, there is the fact that Audrey Hepburn is so incredibly magical.
Stephen M (es) wrote: I dunno, it had some nice shots, sceneries, costumes, plot, special effects... & yet you watch the whole thing feeling detached. It lacks decent writing, the language/banter was a bit too modern. There was way too much action infused that no one really cares about the characters. The characters are just not relatable to the viewer. It seems like the film hyped itself up peaked way too quickly & resulted in a fizzle.
Lenny R (br) wrote: Not the best movie ever made. Not the best action movie ever made. Not even the best parkour movie ever made. But it's surprisingly watchable despite all the cliches (loan sharks! Bent cop! Pontiac GTO! Hero and hero's mentor falling out over a woman! Probably other stuff!) and Sharkboy's ongoing lack of acting talent and charisma (though, to be fair, he's good at running around and jumping over things). Marie Avgeropoulos is the only reason I watched it, being a fan of her performance on The 100, and she's good here, but relatively untested. All other actors get a solid 'meh'. No new ground is broken, no envelopes are pushed, but it's an OK way to kill time.
