It's no surprise that Anthony Hopkins does such a great job, as does Helen Mirren...but it is the script, direction and editing that really makes this so worth seeing!

Not sure it would be as entertaining to younger generation not familiar with Psycho or Alfred Hitchcock's wonderful movies and TV series. But, for those who grew up on Hitchcock and movie buffs of all generations, this movie was fun to watch and interesting to learn about the man behind the famous face. Anthony Hopkins was a natural for the part and the entire cast was entertaining. Refreshing topic for viewers.

Anthony Hopkins as the cutting, caustic, corpulent creative director "Alfred Hitchcock" (1899-1980) is magnificent. He captures the man with his foibles, charms, inimitable genius, as no other actor could. For those who remember Mr. Hitchcock, Hopkins reincarnates the "Master of Suspense"...
"Psycho" released in 1960, was a stunning, colossal success; stampedes of movie-goers, assaulted theatres, lusting for a taste of the "kill", an injection of "fright"; legitimatizing Hitchcock's prescience. Fifty-two years later its luster has yet to wane...

Went to see this with my husband. What most impressed me was how much Hitch relied on his wife. Great acting and wonderful cinematography. We thoroughly enjoyed it. For everyone who is a fan of the masterful Alfred Hitchcock and those who have yet to discover his artistry. A must see. PJD in Lakewood CO

I guess old "Hitch's" bio rights went up for auction recently, based solely on the seeming avalanche of material about his life that's already found it's way to screens big and small in recent months. Among that fare, this one is fair (pardon the pun) in the way of entertaining. Hopkins and Mirren deliver stellar performances with what can only be described as an amateurish screenplay. Proof once again that there are no small parts, only small actors. and again how genuinely amazing is what real talent can bring to an otherwise dismal effort. All in all this isn't a bad flick, just not one you might want to consider paying an evening ticket price to see. It's a judgment call best left to the one paying I suppose.
