unoriginal ending

5 years, 11 months ago at May 11 11:09
Hoffman and Hawke play 2 brothers. Because they need money, they plan a robbery, that goes wrong... very wrong.

Hoffman and Hawke's performances are quite good, so is Marisa Tomei's and the other supportive actors'.
The script isn't that original, you can predict what will happen, and it's really too bad, because there were many possibilities, and unfortunately the scriptwrit... read more

Great performances, decent movie

Likes: The performances by Ethan Hawke, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were awesome. Theys should have gotten a nomination for them. The story was very good. Michael Shannon had a really good part.

Dislikes: It got old fast. By this I mean it was just the samething over and over again. Now I know it was the style of the film, to show what a certain person was doing at a certain time. ... read more

Description: Sidney Lumet’s Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead is an exceptionally dark story about a crime gone wrong and the complicated reasons behind it.

“A little slow-moving, but was interesting to see how some small things slowly escalated to bigger things. Acting was good all-around, plot was realistic but could have been paced a little faster. Not a typical entertaining thriller for sure, but still one worth the watch.” read more

"First Viewing Viewed: January 15th Plot: When two brothers organize the robbery of their parents' jewelry store the job goes horribly wrong, triggering a series of events that sends them, their father and one brother's wife hurtling towards a shattering climax. Now this is how you make a proper thriller. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead wound up being the final film to be directed by Sidney Lumet, a filmmaking mainstay who debuted with the exceptional 12 Angry Men in the 1950s before creat"

"Watched on: 4/8/13 This is a well made and very well acted film. My problem is that I simply didn't like any of the characters. I could care less if they lived or died and I just couldn't get into the film because of that. "

Hoping that the money will improve each others situation with the belief that the insurance will cover the loss to the store. However, this being a movie, you know things are going to go awry. As the plans, then the robbery itself fall apart, the brothers find their relationship with each other, with their father & just with their lives falling deeper in dysfunction. A great film with a"
