unoriginal ending

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

Hard to talk about this movie but is a must watch. Very interesting and with amazing performances. I was expecting less but wow, very good. I'm still shocked.

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. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Ethan Hawke are outstanding as brothers whose mutual love-hate relationship subtly colors their agreement to rob their own parents’ jewelry store, and more explicitly affects the anxious aftermath of their villainy when their mother (Rosemary Harris) ends up shot.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- December 2016 (33 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 57min. First Viewing It's a Lumet film, so it should go without saying that the cast is superb (Hoffman and Finney, in particular, give the film real weight), but Lumet and the script are quite effective when it comes to building tension, to a truly queasy effect. There are drawbacks though, too many characters and the format doesn't always add much to the preceedings, but Before the Devil Knows You're Dead is a strong crime film about the legacies father's pass on to their sons.
