Taxi Driver Audience Reviews

Bereamic Awesome Movie
Bumpy Chip It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
Zandra The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.
Fleur Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
shawnparsons-62766 Often considered a cornerstone of cinema Taxi Driver left me wanting more. Its not that the movie is bad but perhaps the reputation preceding the product killed it for me. De Niro is in top form as loner Travis Bickle who tries hard to fit in but just cannot. Martin Scorsese has crafted a moody drama film set in his native streets of New York and the cinematography is sublime. It makes you feel uneasy because you are on the level of Travis. Great bit parts from Jodie Foster and Harvey Keital enhance the acting front and a sublime jazz score gives a nice touch. However I feel that the film is a tad overrated
Eric Stevenson I didn't even know this movie was directed by Martin Scorsese. I was quite impressed by such an all star cast, even Frank Boyle. Wait, was he always bald? This film's plot just seems to go all over the place. I didn't even know this was the movie with the famous line, "You talking to me?". That seems like such a generic thing to say, but I still think of it every time I say that. The plot is that Robert DeNiro plays Travis, a taxi driver (duh!) who is dissatisfied with his job. He falls for a woman named Betsy, but their relationship ends badly. He tries to become physically stronger and more intimidating by working out and using all sorts of weapons. He comes across an underage prostitute named Iris. He decides to free her from her pimp. This is a movie where there's a lot going on, but it's still easy to pay attention to, which is always a plus.Leonard Maltin shockingly only gave this film two out of four stars, complaining that it was too violent. Honestly, it's not really violent until the climax. What matters is how unbelievably 70's this movie is. It works so well as a time capsule, making you reflect on pop culture at that time. This film became infamous because it allegedly inspired Ronald Reagan's failed assassin, who wanted to impress Jodie Foster. Ironic seeing as how the film itself features a failed assassination, but no one is wounded. ****
Majikat I love De Niro and I love Scorsese! Taxi driver is one of the older classics that seems a little overrated in the first half, but is busy building toward a climatic eruption.It's pretty amazing to know just how young Jodie Fister was in her role considering what and who she was portraying.Does it still feel like an iconic film? I feel it was a film that represented the place and the time, it's pretty offensive to everyone, but also very perceptive for its time in terms of the escalation of Travis Bickle.Psychotic or hero? Conspiracist or truth seeker? Crime stopper or crime creator?
kennykip Good movie, shows the true horrors of war and what the desire for justice and the urge to help people does to the minds of soldiers coming back from war. it shows a darker side of how soldiers feel justice should be appropriated in their minds. it does all this while truly delivering a suspenseful and riveting psychological thriller that sucks in the viewer to find out what happens next.
