Save your money for something good and enjoyable
The performances transcend the film's tropes, grounding it in characters that feel more complete than this subgenre often produces.
Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
Very good movie and well laid out storyline to keep the audiences attention at every minute along the way
What a powerful, hard hitting and beautifuly crafted piece of cinema! Pigeon holed into a genre where it far surpasses its contemporaries! Skillfully filmed, superbly acted and extremely well written. I can not recommend this film enough! So much better than the mainstream generic movies that Hollywood gives us these days, no super heroes or guaranteed sequels 'just' an original and powerful story.
What can I say? Expected big things but was pretty disappointed. The only redeeming part was performance of Jeremy Renner, but rest of acting was poor. Lead actress (Olsen) was supposed to be a fully trained and competent FBI agent, but behaved more like a prom princess with a nervous disposition. Storyline was confusing and a lot of pointless scenes. Ending was good but had to wait 1 hr 40 m for that. I have rated 4/10.
This was a good film, spoilt somewhat by sound issues. I was not sure what the problem was - were the actors just mumbling? It almost felt like the sound guy was standing too far away - the music and sound effects were fine, but even with the sound turned up to 75/100 I had a hard time hearing what the characters said - that was very hard going. I don't think I got more than a couple of words of the Native American policeman said. Much of the (important?) dialog appeared to be mumbled. Perhaps because I'm English I was not completely "dialled in" to the accents - but I can't remember having an issue with American accents before. I think because I missed quite a bit of the dialog there were a few loose ends left hanging for me. For example, the snow mobile trail that led up to Matt. Did he try to escape, or was he taken there by the "baddies"? If taken there by the baddies, why was the trail only in one direction? And where did they go after? I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation, but it was perhaps missed in the poor sound quality of the dialog.Having said all that it was an interesting movie and very well done otherwise.
