Wow.. I expected this movie to have a higher average rating, in fact only a few of my friends have rated this. I say ignore the average rating and watch this, it really is an amazing movie.

I wouldn't exactly classify this as an action film, more a drama or thriller. I liked the way it combined different themes together - one minute it's a shootout packed with action and the next is... read more

I regret this film. (34 movies items)

"Brad Pitt, The Devil’s Own This 1997 drama, the final film of the great director Alan J. Pakula (Klute, All the President’s Men), should’ve been more memorable, if for no other reason than the teaming of venerable Harrison Ford with young Brad Pitt. But it was ultimately a mess, a sketchy mixture of domestic melodrama and Irish politics that couldn’t decide whether Pitt was a good guy or a bad guy, and why. Before the film’s release, Pitt offered up an explanation to Newsweek: “"

"Watched 19.2 ---------- Ei säväyttänyt. The Devil's Ownista puuttuu kunnianhimoa ja se on muutenkin niin perinteiseiseen muottiin valettu jännäri että vaikea tästä on kiinnostua. Ford ja Pitt menevät täysin hukkaan tällaisessa elokuvassa."

“Wow.. I expected this movie to have a higher average rating, in fact only a few of my friends have rated this. I say ignore the average rating and watch this, it really is an amazing movie.

I wouldn't exactly classify this as an action film, more a drama or thriller. I liked the way it combined different themes together - one minute it's a shootout packed with action and the next is a heartwarming scene that's like a true drama film. Brad Pitt plays a top Irish IRA terrorist who escapes to New York and disguises himself using another name. When he first comes to NY he knows that he will be staying with a family, what he doesn't know is that he will be living with a cop and his family. But still he goes on as planned, keeping hopeful that the cop doesn't find out who he really is.” read more
