Loud from start to finish and sloppy directing

John Cusack is the only good thing in "The Raven." He is well cast as Poe and fights to salvage the movie. Unfortunately, the script is weak and the directing make watching this film akin to sitting through a 2 hr music video starring Edgar Allan Poe.

I have always liked Poe, but always hated poetry! This movie was a great thriller and used all of his famous poems in the killings! It is a movie that you should see!

The Raven

We really enjoyed the movie. The reviews that we read weren't very good but it just goes to show you that you can't believe everything that you read. We thought that John Cusack did an excellent job playing Edgar Allan Poe. We were very much involved in the movie and it kept us interested thru out the entire movie. We would definately recommend seeing it.

What can I say.. I found the movie atmospheric and evocative. I love films that aren't simply formulaic pablum and this movie surpassed my every expectation. Well worth seeing and highly recommended.

Saw the Raven and it was a well written movie. The story line holds together from begining to end and there is plenty of suspense and mystery to hold your interest and keep you watching to find out the end. Great Movie and a good solid cast.
