I absolutely loved Gatsby, the man and the movie. It felt comical in the beginning but earlier than halfway I was already engaged and melted into their beautiful world.

Slick blend of the novel with modern color, action, music and twenties flare of that era. Never boring. This long film moves right along with an interesting plot that keeps your attention.

The immature side was a waste of time to watch. It wasn't directed well. DeCaprio has already done better with Departed and Titanic. The DP or director just didn't capture the best emotion of each scene. It seemed like cheesy soap opera. The Departed seemed real. Sorry Leo, you've done better. 5 out of 10 stars.

I expected little but wanted to see it anyway, and this film blew us away. It is visually stunning, the soundtrack is amazing, and the acting terrific. I am familiar with the short novel by Fitzgerald, in fact recently re-read it and was impressed by how close overall the film stayed to the intent and acton of the book. It does have some small, noticeable errors and gets a little slow near the end, but all the costumes are brilliant and historic details in general are so spot on accurate It is a great love story, action, period piece, moral tale film - not to be missed (but i don't see how 3D really would add to this)

I thought that Leo and Toby were very good and Carey was a stunningly beautiful Daisy. However, the filming & sets were unrealistic and poorly done.
