Hitchcock is a fun movie going experience for fans of the master of suspense, or just fans of film in general. The Pros: Anthony Hopkins, a brilliant actor who portrays Alfred Hitchcock without flaw. Definitely should be an Oscar contender for best actor. The Scenery, from the houses to the 1959 Paramount Pictures studios, the scenery added to the realism of the film. Helen Mirren, a strong actress and very believable in the role of Lady Hitchcock, the struggle between the two and also the love creates an undeniable chemistry between Hopkins and Mirren. The Cons: Scarlett Johansson, I love her as an actress, she wasn't terrible at all, but she was very unconvincing in the role of Janet Leigh, perhaps this was on the filmmakers for not centering the film around the production of Psycho. The Direction, The direction of the movie was great, but jumped around a lot between the love story line and the production of Psycho. Overall a fun and very enjoyable film with great performances. 3/5

Well done to the cast, screen writer, and director! Excellent movie. I loved the scene where Hitch gets the most out of Janet Leigh in the shower scene. Now I can understand his pictures a bit better, since it appears his wife, Alma, was very much involved with his career for soooo many years.

Excellent film and Hopkins really pulled off his role as Hitckcock. Great behind the scenes craziness of Hollywood in the mid to late 50's. Story moved well and the supporting cast was excellent as well. A must see!!!!!!!!!!

Very good movie. Hitchcock is a movie that takes a look at an extraordinary director from an unexpected angle. I was expecting more of a documentary film, and was surprised when I realized it was actually a love story. The movie portrays Hitchcock during the most stressful time in his life making Psyco. The story focuses on the stress in Hitchcock's marriage as he struggles to create his greatest movie of all time. Definitely not what I expected. Still a very good movie. Recommend to all Alfred Hitchcock fans. Anthony Hopkins is always on the top of his game when acting.

Hitchcock is brought to light by the wonderful lead actors. I believe Anthony Hopkins does an amazing job at being Hitchcock. I like how the movie takes place during his struggle of making one of his greatest films. I really like how, throughout the movie it flashes between Hitchcock and clips of Psycho, the movie starts out with one brother killing another, the start of psycho was the start of Hitchcock. I did not like how dramatic the movie actually was. I believe that certain scenes and situation like when he was trying to get the seal approved for the movie and he was completely sarcastic, that just seemed too unreal. All in all I would recommend this movie.
