Had high hopes. Love the actors. Love the IDEA of this story... but once the first "big thing" happens it got so dang boring. Snoozer for a good 1/2 of the flick.

TPBTP is a haunting display of how the sins of a father are visited upon their sons.
This movie is not paced like your typical Hollywood whiz-bang film, it is a thoughtful, sensitive portrayal of real life characters coping inside each of their lives.
I highly recommend seeing this as an alternative to a barely 3D old dinosaur movie.

This film illustrates a story of a father and son over a span of 2 generations. Although it was a long feature, the directors/writers did really well with tying the story line together. The story is about a fathers and sons, as well as their trans-generational connection. I enjoyed this film a lot because Mendes, Gosling and Cooper (main characters) played each role so well! Just hang on until the end and you the film gives you proper closure!! A+!

Good movie with a few good twists and turns. Gosling was great and Cooper was excellent. Really shows the differences in society and how you cannot escape your past.

I lost my father back in December, so this Father/Son epic hit pretty close to home.
I suggest going in and seeing this movie with no spoilers. It was much more enjoyable and surprising to me, by going in with no expectations or prejudice.
If you liked the trailer and planned on seeing it -- GO SEE IT.
