Captivating movie of limitless allure

"Careful Bill, you'll give yourself a heart attack and ruin my vacation." 1998's Meet Joe Black is not everyone's cup of tea. A polarising feature, it underperformed at the box office, earning mixed reviews before ultimately fading into obscurity. Some may call the film plodding due to its three-hour length, while others might find it hokey or cliché, but, in the eyes of this reviewer, the experi... read more

Thank goodness for Anthony Hopkins, or else this movie would have been a complete waste of time. Unfortunately he wasn't in every scene. There was no chemistry between Pitt and Forlani, of course with good reason. Brad Pitt's character was just completely unlikable, or at best cold. I can't decide whether to blame it on the script or the director. And it was much too long, and the last half h... read more

what a boring film - the highlight is when Brad Pitts character gets run over and bounces off about 5 cars! shame as two excellent actors..

" Death takes the form of Joe Black, and is sent to guide a man to the after life, but he falls in love with his daughter instead. Based on the play “La morte in vacanza” by Alberto Casella, and the 1934 film “Death Takes a Holiday”, it was a marginal box success and critics give it mixed reviews. However it’s success, came with the fact that the trailer for Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, made it’s debut at the beginning of the film. Everyone, pretty left after wards. S"

"Death takes a holidayn (1934, n 75 min) uusintaversio (1998, n 180 min) on kuolettavan tylsää huttua. Elokuvassa oli jotain hyvin kiinalaista. Tavallaan viehättävää miten paljon maailma on muuttunut parissa vuosikymmennessä, tuntuisi mahdottomalta ajatukselta että nykyisenä minälie totuudenjälkeisenä, hyperkyynisenä aikakautena tehtäisiin tämänkaltaista yltiö-imelää, täysin itseironiatonta ja vielä kolmetuntista hollywood-elokuvaa suurelle yleisölle."
