Jane Eyre 2011By a customer , 11 Sep 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]I was rather disappointed with last scene... To be honest there was no need to re-make this film.... The 2006 re-make was better

Dull. Bland.By FullofStars (65 reviews) from Scotland , 19 Oct 2013Had high hopes but they were dashed against the rocks of this below average, dull and insipid production. Watching paint dry.
fab and freshBy a customer , 18 Sep 2013Loved this film as been a fan of the story and seen many versions in the past. It is very understated and Gothic- relying on people knowing the story or giving just enough for someone who doesn't to make them want to read the book. Palpable chemistry between the two leads and a good twist on Tristans character.
Fantastically fiesty Jane EyreBy BadBabe (40 reviews) , 05 Jul 2013Really enjoyed this film. Mia is brill as Jane Eyre and she gives as good as she gets. Michael Fassbender is ok as Rochester. (Toby Stevens is a better Rochester in the version mentioned by other posters) It's romantic, scary and humorous. Watch with a open mind. You won't be disappointed.
very disappointingBy a customer , 06 May 2013As a lover of the novel and TV/film adaptions of Jane Eyre, I was seriously disappointed with this version. It just seemed flat and lacking in authenticity. The characters just didn't seem believable compared to previous versions and the book itself. Not to say that Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasiokowska did a bad job - they are brilliant actors I just don't think that these roles were for them. If you are a fan of the many other versions I'd say skip this one. If you haven't seen any of them then maybe give it a try.
glacially gorgeousBy gillibeanie (9 reviews) from Barnstaple , 01 Feb 2013Not sure what to make of this. It looked gorgeous, with lots of long lingering shots of the moor and of Mia Wasikowska. I feel this made the pace almost glacial and, to be honest, a little boring. I feel the BBC series from 2006 was better paced although it was longer. That being said, Mr Rochester is very well cast indeed (Michael Fassbender looking rather lovely) and there is chemistry between the two leads. I was drawn into the story sufficiently for it to have made me want to watch it again. Maybe. One day.
