One of 2012 best movies!By a customer , 18 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]Well, what can i say about this movie....IT WAS BRILLIANT! The cast are all so talented and play there characters so well! Tom Hardy as big brother Forrest Bondurant was amazing (no surprise there!) I was pleasantly surprised with Shia's performance as youngest brother Jack Bondurant. I feel he really held his own up against such great actors (Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce etc). Altho Jason Clarke gave a good performance as Howard Bondurant, it felt a bit like he was a spare part and the movie was more surrounding Forrest and Jack, would have been nice to see a bit more of him and also Jessica Chastain who plays Maggie Beauford (Forrest's love interest) For me Tom Hardy's performance shone through the most, such a talented actor! Looking forward to its DVD release :)

must watch. tom hardys brilliantBy a customer , 12 Nov 2013great film.....tom hard at his best! I would defo recommend if your a fan of great films and don't mind a little violence.
Great film but ensure you have a rewind button...By yanbart (135 reviews) , 06 Nov 2013Great Film! Although make sure you can either understand strong yet quiet South American accents, or be able to lip read. I had to keep rewinding it to try and catch what was being said, especially by Hardy. Hardy is the bad guy, yet the likeable one, Pearce is the good guy, yet a real sh*t and you just want to smack his chops! Both deliver strong performances in their own right.
A Must WatchBy AngryBurd (13 reviews) , 04 Nov 2013Top film. Would have gave it 5 stars but the only thing that let me down was that there wasn't enough action! Other than that, great film. Brilliant storyline, great acting and could easily watch it over and over again!
Classic masterpieceBy Eliza-beth (2 reviews) , 30 Oct 2013Classic movie to add to any collection. Loved it so much that we bought the soundtrack and the novel! Highly recommend! Want to watch it all over again now! Tricky, edgy, brilliantly-acted and very gothic.
Entertainment at its best.By lacey174 (10 reviews) , 24 Oct 2013
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideSuperb acting, brilliant story both myself and my wife were stuck to this for the full duration. Was violent which was expected by the description and the rating of 18. Cant fault this film from my point of view, it was a brilliant story of anti-hero with heart warming family bonds, extreme violence and a psychotic agent trying to capture criminals.
