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!

I liked the movie. It had energy. I liked the movie much better than the earlier version with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. I thought the music was good and the 3D special effects were awsome. I go to see the movie again.

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!!

My husband, son & I absolutely loved The Great Gatsby . . . we had thought twice about seeing it after the reviews but once again the critics had it wrong. The filming & special effects were terrific . . . we saw it in 3 D which made it all the more spectacular. It was wonderful how they mixed modern day music with the Roaring Twenties theme. The acting was brilliant. I would highly recommend this movie.
THIS IS A MUST SEE IN 3D
