It's a MUST GO and See movie for the holidays. Five-and-a-half thumbs up for both Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren. Anthony Hopkins as the master of suspense - very convincing! You would really think he was Hitch himself, the way he moves and talk. Helen Mirren of course, well... it's Helen Mirren - I could watch her just to peel potatoes.
Scar Jo also shines in this movie. Very well acted - the way she portrays Ms. Janet Leigh in this moviementary was exactly like it was in the original movie. There are times during the movie that you would feel they were actually filming the original Psycho. Nicely "well done".
Makes you wanna see the original Psycho all over again.

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.

This is the best movie I have seen hands down. The shock, suspense, the love story, the things we didn't know about Hitchcock. What a wonderful film.
One of the best I have seen in forever. I truly mean that.
This movie has some awards coming it's way.
Anthony Hopkins is brilliant as always, and Helen Mirren shines, and is as beautiful as ever.
Spine tingling fun, and bone shattering laughter will be yours this holiday season if you see this film. I promise you.With some terror in your eyes, with shame you should be stabbed and murdered on Que if you don't see this film, because you would truly be missing out.

My husband and I loved this movie! Very well done. After about five minutes I forgot I was watching Anthony Hopkins; he did a superb job!
