The mother died under the executioner's axe; the daughter rose to become England's greatest monarch -- the brilliant and cunning Queen Elizabeth I. Jean Simmons portrays young Bess in this rich tapestry of a film that traces the tumultuous, danger-fraught years from Elizabeth's birth to her unexpected ascension to the throne at a mere 25. Charles Laughton reprises his Academy Award®-winning* role as her formidable father Henry VIII. Deborah Kerr plays her last stepmother (and Henry's last of six wives), gentle Catherine Parr. And Simmons' then real-life husband, Stewart Granger, adds heroics as Lord Admiral Thomas Seymour. In a resplendent world of adventure, romance and court intrigue, Young Bess reigns.

Trent R (kr) wrote: Underwhelming sequel in which Chapman To actually comes off as perhaps the most dramatic presence. Lots of lame cat-mouse dialogue between Koo and Wu, a repeated opening competition, glamour shots of match target pistols, and silly reenactments and flashbacks reminiscent of lazer tag. Koo even double flash-forwards an end scenario more entertaining than what actually happens, right beforehand.

Irvin C (es) wrote: After reading what this movie is about, I was surprised that it's supposed to be a black comedy. And it is, in a way, since it at times get absurd and ridiculous (in a good way). An elderly man calls an ambulance and deteriorates as he gets passed from one hospital to another. What's great about this movie is that you sympathize with Mr. Lazarescu yet also at the same time you can sort of understand why the doctors and nurses are pissed off at him. It didn't blow me away but it is a well-done satire on hospital bureaucracy in Romania.

Grant S (us) wrote: Carried by the supporting cast.Two friends, John (played by Owen Wilson) and Jeremy (Vince Vaughn), crash weddings to pick up women. One day they crash the wedding of the daughter of the Treasury Secretary, Secretary Cleary (Christopher Walken). Instead of short-term flings they end up being invited to the Clearys' island estate, and potentially meet the loves of their lives...Has its moments but mostly quite silly and predictable. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn are quite irritating and unfunny (not really a surprise)However, the supporting cast is great and almost makes up for Wilson and Vaughn's ineptness and dullness. Isla Fisher is fantastically over-the-top and scary as the clingy Gloria. Rachel McAdams is wonderful as Claire. Bradley Cooper plays the bad guy for once, and does it extremely well - swarmy, in-your-face and very over-the-top. Christopher Walken is...Christopher Walken. And then there's Jane Seymour as a Mrs Robinson-like Mrs Cleary...Overall - mediocre, but could have been a whole lot worse.

Ben T (fr) wrote: A hilarious and often dark comedy that has a great cast, great direction, and a funny script. It showed the Coen brothers comedic power and also had some surprisingly fun moments of action. It's a must see for fans of comedies and may be Nicholas Cage's best work.
terhi t (it) wrote: There are films with a special atmosphere, films you don't so much remember of but you remember how they felt... like champagne on a cool autumnday. So it is with the garden in Ferrara, as is the title of the book behind this film. The house surrounded with a large park and high walls and the family living there, siblings and there friends and slowly entering ripples of menace form a torrent of slowmotion acts leading nowhere until the family, them being jewish, is led away...

Loved it man, makes you think.Eva Longoria shines, a rising actress and model and Freddy Rodriguez too does a splendid job, they both support fireball Bale well.Soundtrack on this is so good, i want to go and own it. This is like Training Day or 8 mile. It's got a level of seriousness that gleams in all it's gritty realism.A must own and a must see!''I'm a soldier of the apocalypse, man!''
