solid, intelligent entertainmentBy a customer from Leeds , 17 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Despite being derided by a few for some obvious influences (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest), The Jacket is by far the rip of they make out. It is atmospheric, excellently shot and the acting is engaging throughout. It starts off unnerving and chilling but as it progresses and you become used to the situations, you become heavily involved.
A well-made film all round; keeps the attention, thought-provoking and a fantastic story.

Slightly DissapointingBy a customer from Worcester , 01 Oct 2009This film didn't really work for me. As I watched I was left feeling a little short-changed. Nothing to do with the acting or plot. Perhaps the direction went flat but it was interesting, melancholic and little else. Knightly looked (as she always does) great!
Strange but interesting...By dollgerl (4 reviews) from Birmingham , 03 Aug 2009I think I would have to watch this film at least 5 times to get the plot. Its set in the past, present and future, and kinda gets all mixed up, bit nail biting, excellent performance by Adrien Brody, yes interesting, but not his best
BoringBy Kaps (6 reviews) from Harrow , 11 Jun 2009What a waste of time. Avoid
Adrian Brody does it again!By a customer from Doncaster , 03 Mar 2009
