SC Movie Review 22


The film stars Antony Hopkins who finds out that his wife has been having an affair. There are similarities to Lector and he plays a convincing intelligent psychopath. He gets charged with her murder (attempted murder) after finding out about her affair. The courtroom battle ensues with a young buck of a prosecutor (Ryan Gosling).

Hopkins plays rings around the lawyer and eventually wins the case. There are a couple of okay twists and turns within the film but I am hard pressed to give it more than my score below.

Another film from Love Film, another disappointment. Maybe that's a bit harsh, but I seem to have dried up my list of films so may postpone my membership for a little while.

Any suggestions for a good film to rent. Recent or past gems. If I rent it and think it deserves more than 7.5 / 10 i'll give you £1.

  1. Miller's Crossing
    Mad Max 2
    Training Day
    Glengarry Glen Ross

    I'll think of more.

  2. -Mad Max 2 is great.
    -Training Day is okay (I own it)

    -Miller's Crossing looks promising
    -Zatoichi, not really my thing (or April's for that matter) but I will give it a go.
    -Glengarry Glen Ross, I think i've seen it, but will rent it just in case as there are some great actors in there
    -Chinatown, sounds good, again good actors.

    I'll get back to you will my ratings over the next few weeks. A possible £4
