ATMOSPHERICBy Kermode (39 reviews) from Aberdare , 19 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Fifty's film noir with Adrien
Brody very sensitive performance as a down at
heel private eye investigating
the death of Superman actor.
Very slow paced ,though excellent performances by
Affleck and Lane, with a tremendous small role for
Bob Hoskins. The film certainly captures the time with its film studios and movie star mansions scenes, but it is flawed effort
and could have been a classic if the screenplay was
a lot sronger.

HollywoodlandBy TheBridges (3 reviews) from Earlsfield, London , 10 Feb 2010I wasn't really sure what to expect with this film but in the end I found it enjoyable, altho it's hard to explain why! Both Brody and Affleck were excellent, and yes the plot was a bit slow and the outcome a bit non committal but the journey was worth it nevertheless. Very atmospheric setting of the era. Recommended, though don't expect to be gripped by excitement.

GoodBy a customer from West Linton , 14 Jan 2010A watchable film but lacked some but a bit superficial to prevent a higher rating
Not that greatBy pippa4 (13 reviews) from Banbury , 15 Dec 2009I had wanted to see this film for ages and although it was good and kept me watching, at the end it didnt really solve anything and i felt that the ending was a bit of anti climax.
