Side Effects

Yet another case of some talking head movie critic going on a morning talk show and raving wildly about a movie and the movie itself not living up to the rave. This movie is ok and the twist at the end is a surpise but dangggggg, it takes a looonnnnggg time to get there with lots of useless throw away shots that do not advance the plot imo. On the plus side, Rooney Mara is really good though she plays yet another dark, moody edgy character. would be nice to see her in something light and upbeat to see if she has the chops for that. I really like her, but would just like to see her do something that isn't so derivative of her role in The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo. Jude Law is excellent and carries the movie imo. Great actor! All in all, an ok but not exceptional movie, critic's opinion not withstanding. I think some critics are too much a part of the Hollywood movie industry and will offer up a positive review of a movie just because they like certain actors, directors etc.

Well done thriller

This is a masterpiece of a psychological thriller. We loved it! There is a well written clever plot, fantastic writing and characters and top notch acting. Such a refreshing change from the non-stop violence of most thrillers.

This movie was nothing like I thought it would be. It held a twist I did not expect. All in all I enjoyed the movie. The actors were well suited in there rolls.

So - So

Was not thrilled with this movie. It had been hyped as "Hitchcockian" - far from it in my opinion. Sir Alfred Hitchcock would roll over in his grave to have his name/style associated with this film. There were perhaps 2 saving graces in this movie: its length - 105 minutes - thank God it was not one minute longer; and Jude Law. I could certainly have done without the scene towards the end that added nothing to the movie except nausea.... I give it 2 thumbs down.

Horrible Movie

I haven't actually left before a movie has ended in a very long time. I have only walked out of one other movie. I walked out of this movie. The movie is slow. The plot sucks. The twist is pretty predictable. Don't go!
