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+!

Thoughtful human melodrama. Believable. See it.

When I saw the trailer, I thought "ok, maybe, looks like one to see." I had the chance to watch "The Place Beyond the Pines" last night; and I'm glad I did! Very interesting story, with believable characters, in believable situations! Actions can have consequences, either good or bad, and it can affect others, now or later. I want to talk about this in more detail - but don't want to spoil anything to those deciding weather to see this film. So, I'll leave it to that. I went to a smaller cinema in a smaller auditorium to see it; and wow, it was filled with people!

Good to see once

It was quite long and although had a good story/premise, was too far fetched for me. Movie also felt like I was watching one movie the first hour and another movie the second hour. Was ok to see once but I wouldn't see it again.

Hit close to home.

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. Great directing. Great actings. Excellent emotion. 9/10.

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!
