Some artistic liberties taken and it evolves over time, but overall it's one of those movies you will want to talk about afterwards. Outstanding performances by all actors and especially DiCaprio - Oscar material for sure.

I started getting into it and this was the first 3-D showing at our theater. The projector stoped right when it was getting good what a waste of an evening and $30.00

A wonderful film, 10/10. Breathetaking extravaganza. Slow to start, but picks up speed as the story unfolds and truly captures the era that it takes place in but with plenty of directorial and musical liberties.
What a amazing life these people lived. A fleeting glimpse into their lives, loves and relationships.
Great story telling and a serioous attempt to be as faithful as possible to Fitzgerald's novel.
Stunning visuals, bright colors and superb images and symbols.
I loved it. Not to be missed!

I was expecting to hate this movie since I walked out on "Moulin Rouge" which had to be the worst movie since "Ishtar". This was the best adaptation of the Great Gatsby story brought to the big screen. The music was a bit weird and the party scenes full of anachronisms, but all in all a decent movie. There were actually a few decent literary moments in the film and overall a good time.

Seen this in 3D and enjoyed the detail that the movie gave with the 20's & 30's look. Beautiful hats and outfits that had my wife giddy in her seat. I loved the cars and the rustic looked it had at times. Good storyline and Leo Dicap didn't disappoint, and wasn't filled with foul language and nudity that allows anybody over 13 yrs old to sit thru. I give it 3 1/2 stars and proves to myself that I will see anything Leo does on film.
