I remember reading the book in high school, so I knew what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The acting was superb, the cinematography was AMAZING, and the influence of current music against a 20s backdrop was a great mash-up. I would encourage anyone to check this movie out. The 3D made it even better!

After seeng the Great Gatsby, I want to marry Leonardo. Make no mistake people, that was a very difficult character to pull off and I had some reservations about how he was going to do it--especially since Robert Redford nailed it the first time. If you're an, "Old Sport," who still believes in chilvary, then it is a "must see." Visually stunning, A list acting--a little hiccups with random interjections of Jay Z's rap lyrics, but if you can get pass those few minor distrations, it was a very good movie. I can't wait to see it again on DVD. I will be first in line at Best Buy. I will say, though, I tried to watch the older version right after seeing the new one, and found it to be visually flat and a little dry. What a shame! I used to love that old 1974 flick starring the sultry and sexy, Mia Farrow. Go see it! Now! Right Now! Didn't I say, NOW? You'll be glad you did!!

Not the substance to the era that the other movie was. Great acting by Gatsby and a better telling of the story, but too "animated" and "unnatural" in production

"The Great Gatsby" in 3D was phenomenal! 2 Hours & 20 minutes past by like the blink of the eye. Leonardo Di Caprio found a roll that fit his on screen persona & Tobey Maguire was terrific. The critics are destroying this incredible movie. Perhaps 3D makes a difference. Probably a personal taste but Dani & I loved it!

I loved this movie. I saw it last night in 3d and while I initially thought seeing a movie like this in 3d was silly and unnecessary, i have to say it added a lot to the movie, made you feel closer to the characters and made it more intimate. I loved this film, really felt the emotions of the characters. It was very well done and after it was over I sat in the theater for a long time letting it all sink in. I would definitely recommend this movie
