A good movie

Nowadays, Mel Gibson is more famous for his antisocial behavior than for his work as an actor or as a director but I still think he is an interesting thespian and I always try to check his movies when I get the chance. One thing I really like about him is that even though he has become mostly known as an action star following his success with the franchises 'Mad Max' and 'Lethal Weapon', he has pr... read more

"Date: 21. March - First Time Watch - Watched it with my English class, and oh boy... I don't want to sound immature, but this film was flat out boring. The original story interests me, and I want to read the book, but this was just... wow. I did not like this at all. "

A good movie

“Nowadays, Mel Gibson is more famous for his antisocial behavior than for his work as an actor or as a director but I still think he is an interesting thespian and I always try to check his movies when I get the chance. One thing I really like about him is that even though he has become mostly known as an action star following his success with the franchises 'Mad Max' and 'Lethal Weapon', he has proven that he has actually more range than your typical action figures such as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger or Jean-Claude Van Damme. I mean, could you imagine one of those guys starring in a classic Shakespeare adaptation? Not only Mel Gisbon tried but I thought he was actually convincing. Of course, it does help when you have one of the master of the genre, Franco Zefirelli, in the d” read more

O Veneno de Rubens Ewald Filho (41 movies items)

""Mel Gibson era um astro tão popular que ninguém teve coragem de lhe recusar nada quando teve a loucura de querer estrelar uma versão de Hamlet no cinema. O curioso é que seu Hamlet não chega a ser desastroso, é apenas indiferente, medíocre, um ato de vaidade de um astro que não reconhece suas limitações.""

"Hurjalla vauhdilla eteenpäin puuskuttava tarina hiljentää sopivasti vauhtiaan suvantokohdissa ja jatkaa jylhää vauhtiaan aina jännittävään loppukliimaksiin asti. Nopea tarinankerronta voi koitua kompastuskiveksi turhalle analysoijalle, joka tippuu kärryiltä liiallisen pohdiskelun seurauksena. Elokuvasta on turha etsiä mitään syvällisempää kesken kaiken, sillä kaikki ajatukset ilmeentyvät lopussa. Meno on nopeaa, kuin toimintaelokuvassa, mikä ei ole ihan paras ratkaisu melodra"
