Well done version; casting, acting,directing, and photography are all well done. If not a "must see" it is, aleast, an "ought to see"!

the movie itself is moderately well made, I sort of enjoyed it, I mean, I can't enjoy a story line that I already despise. The acting is pretty good but it could be better it is directed alright and its overall a mediocre movie.

Great Expectations Met My Expectations

I heard this was very well done, with good characters and cinematography, and it was all I expected! The first 30 minutes were just a bit slow: my 91 year old friend fell asleep... but as a serious Dickens and all things English fan, I found it to be a valuable segue way into the drama to come; the characters were developed much as Dickens develops them; it takes time, and it's not always blood and guts or sci-fi paced action. The casting was superb. It was easy to not like Estella for her coldness. Ralph Fiennes did a terrific job as the ex-convict, and I won't say more. Dickens always has twists and intrigue in his stories, and this is a classic because it is so rich in emotions, values, relationships, in class distinction and pettiness, and loyalty, and of course a large dose of the unexpected. I say you should see it, but maybe leave the great grandma home.

too much expectation, but the drama wasn't enough, not as exciting as the original one...
