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.

Fine acting directing and production, awesome cinematography period costuming, period cars and sets.
The weak spot for me was the plot. Somewhat thin and certainly a morose, sad ending. I also think the length is a bit long, it could easily been edited down 20 minutes to 2 hours. I would give this film a solid "B" or perhaps "B+", just can't give it an "A" rating.

Gatsby has its problems, primarily in tone and performance, but it's unquestionably one of the most beautiful, visually rich films to come along in some time. Look forward to spirited discussions after the film about how Leo came off more crazy than charismatic, whether Carey Mulligan's Daisy is truly a golden girl that would inspire men to fight for her, and whether the visuals were so dizzying that it was hard to focus on how beautiful they were. Is it worth seeing? Absolutely. You'll be transported in a visual sense - and you'll likely be nspired to by the soundtrack, the least-bothersome and most entertaining of the film's anachronisms - even if the sum of so many gorgeous parts doesn't quite add up.

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!
