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 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 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.

In response to the last review I read…it didn’t have to be silly to be both modern and old fashioned…It lacked sophistication, like much of this director’s work. I should have lowered my expectations! It pokes too much fun at what deserved to be epic….So disappointing! Good soundtrack though!
