The re-make is excellent. Now I've seen 3 versions of this movie and this is the best. Leonardo is a fantastic J. Gatsby. All the actors were true to the original story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The whole audience was deeply into the story. Only a few got up during the movie. It is well worth the money and the time to see this movie. I would like to see this again. This era of American history depicting the life styles of the people who had money and the "wannabees" who hung out with them was portrayed in an excellent manner. The whole production is Oscar worthy.

I thought it would have been another "bling-bling" story, using one of the best American novel to show off Hollywood type effects, but I was wrong. Moving, deep and intense, with a wonderful cast. Definitively, a must go.

I loved this movie. The acting was phenomenal, especially Leo, Toby and Joel-they all deserve Oscar nominations. This movie and the actors really make your emotions run wild. It stayed pretty true to the book so there are no surprises. Also, the clothes were TO DIE FOR!!

A little disappointing. I think they got too caught up in making it a 3D film so there were a lot of shots that didn't make sense. The acting, costumes, set design were all fantastic. But the direction and music selection fell short.

I saw the great gatsby today , it's better than reading the book, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan did a good job. The grade i give is an B+
