Think this is one of Mr DeCaprio's worst efforts actually,i couldn't get into it,had a gut feeling over the ending,got bored watching it to be honest,watch The Departed or The Beach if you wanna see the said actor at his best.......

  Good film overall

A good film overall, but a little too long. Normally I don't mind longer films, but this was bogged down with a lot of scenes that didn't need to be there. Could easily have been edited down by 15 minutes.

The twist was good and unexpected - right up to the credits I still couldn't believe it - (yes, I'm one of those who didn't know Bruce Willis was a ghost in The Sixth Sense!) and overall it was worth a watch. Just too long..

  Psychological and interesting!

I absolutly loved this film! I found it fairly slow starting and to get into the storyline, I also found it quite confusing in parts but this was the best bit of it. The end was completely unexpected and left me thinking about the whole story but I loved the twist and once I understood the ending, it made the whole film seem so clever. I highly recommend this film !! Its hard to explain what I mean without giving to much away.

Great film, great storyline, great twist at the end. Really truly a classic film and very original I don't think i've ever seen a film like it. Some parts of the film very dark as well and not for the faint hearted. It's an absolute bargain for the price aswell I've seen it 3 times and still not bored off it. Also read the book which is even better because it goes in to more detail and you find out more about Teddy's past. BUY IT.

  Brilliant !

  ..."TOP NOTCH BUT HIGHLY DISTURBING THRILLER..."

The quickest 2 and a half hours ever! Absolutely loved everything about this film, but especially the twist at the end. I'm not too sure about other readers, but i found this highly disturbing, and mental, not the type that would play on your mind though, i can see why it's a 15.

I think it's equal with inception, i wouldn't say it was better or worse, they both have twists, and a strong cast that deserve their roles.

  VERY HITCHCOCKIAN

| | See all snncob1's reviews (20)

Good film, I agree with Jaggers review below, a little long and drawn out, but well worth a watching, but the bar is always going to be set very high for Scorcese. Mark Ruffalo was quiet good and Di Caprio and Kingsley out on their own.
