Worth The 2+ Hour Time!!!!

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+!

UNBELIEVABLE

I went to this move with great expectations but certainly was NOT rewarded. Ryan Gosling is no Ed Norton and Bradly Cooper is lame. The real acting came from Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta who had way to small of a roll and keep an eye on Dane DeHaan - he is a true up and coming young star. The move had no redeeming factors unless you believe, most American men are booze smoking drug addicted psychos who, either wind up dead or deadbeats - raise kids that do nothing but booze - smoke and oh yes beat each other up. WOW - I guess that's the NEW NORMAL we are expected to 'believe!?' That's UNBELIEVABLE!

I really enjoyed this film, especially the acting. The story telling was fluid and quick. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes long, but it goes by quickly. It is not as good as Silver Linings Playbook, but yet it is still a pretty good movie. I give it a B+

Beautifully Sad

The movie was perfectly pensive, introspective, and so sad. It shows different perspectives on how our choices shape us, and the next generation. The acting was incredible, especially Brady Cooper's performance. Wow. Not a need-to-see-at-the-theatre movie, but the music at that volume/proximity was moving. Overall a beautifully sad film.

The Place Beyond the Pines

It was worth seeing. It was a little different side of Ryan Gosling than I've seen in other movies.
