Very enjoyable

This movie was a little romance, fantasy and the pull between good and evil. Went with my girlfriends and laughed and cried. Perfect chick flick! Bonus, it's never a bad thing to see Colin Farrell topless! Russell Crowe played the demon really well! All in all very enjoyable!

A surprise at every turn! Romantic and intriguing story.

I was pleasantly surprised by Winter's Tale. The cast, the dialogue, the plot. I could not have predicted the outcome at any point during this movie. The acting was superb, and the story was really different than other things out there at this time. Go see it. It's great.

Just okay

While the acting was wonderful and the scenery sublime, I thought the story line was disjointed and hard to follow. In the end, it left me rather flat and I'm a huge fan of many of the actors in this film. In particular, I'm a huge Will Smith fan but I thought he was poorly cast in this movie. It was almost comical the way they "revealed" him for the first time.

I took my fiance and realize the movie was probably more for her but we both kind of walked out shrugging our shoulders. Definitely would recommend waiting for it to hit video/netflix - no rush to sit through this one.

Excellent idea, middling character development

The screenplay did a great job building up the relationship between the main character (Farrell) and his red-haired love in 1914. But SO much time was spent there that there was almost NO character development in 2014. The build-up to a dramatic ending was a bit less dramatic than I anticipated. On a major positive note, Russell Crowe was fantastic as the demon, and Will Smith was "neat" as Lucifer. Overall, this movie was enjoyable, but on an A-F scale I give it a B- to a B, which in my way of thinking means "pretty good and enjoyable, but not great, and not a 'must see'."
