Pretentious drivelBy lauranicole83 (8 reviews) , 10 Mar 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]Please, please, please don't waste your time renting or indeed watching this film. It was the biggest pile of pretentious c#&p I've ever had the misfortune to watch. I watch a lot of independent and foreign films, so I'm not someone who just rates the big, action Hollywood films highly, but this was like one giant perfume ad - dialogue includes, 'We are here, yet we are not here', 'open me, discover me'. Awful, awful, awful. Right up there with Cosmopolis as one of the worst, most pointless and mind numbing films I've had to sit through. Ben Affleck displaying an acting talent so wooden he could single-handedly accomplish reforestation of the Amazon. My sister works at an independent cinema, so the only silver lining was that I didn't have to pay to see this load of tripe. If you want a beautifully shot, thought provoking film with fantastic acting, my advice is to give this a miss and try 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' instead.

To the Wonder ? left me wondering.....By a customer , 18 Dec 2013Wow! disappointing, unfortunately this movie failed to fulfil one's hopes or expectations. I adore ' Rachel McAdams,' whom is a very fine actress, however even Miss McAdam's performance although mediocre in this movie, didn't compel or thrill me and failed to save the movie. Very slow, I love a slow paced movie which draws you in sadly 'To the Wonder' left me wondering.... Yes, the camera shots and cinematography are stunning, superb, however this is not a national geographic. Absolutely zero chemistry between Rachel McAdams and Ben Affleck, oh and the other actress Olga Kurylenko. I expected so much more. Expectations should be high, when starring Oscar nominees and established actors/Directors! After watching Racel Mcadams in 'Passion' whose performance was phenomenal, I expected Rachel to perhaps save the movie sadly not.... this goes to show one can not assume because there are well known actors in a movie it will be good! There was not an ounce of passion in this movie, I was so very disappointed 'To the Wonder' is very bad!
Complete and utter waste of timeBy a customer , 15 Dec 2013What a fantastic film...to fall asleep to. I had literally NO idea what they were trying to do in the film. Pretentious is one word. Pointless is another. Life-wasting has to be the biggest description I can provide. Ben Affleck - stick to action films, at least they have some plot (and interest!). I'm off to go and walk aimlessly in a field waving my arms around in an 'artistic manner'...
AARRRRRGH !?!?!?!By a customer , 12 Dec 2013pointless waste of time. No story, no point. pointless waste of time. No story, no point. pointless waste of time. No story, no point.

How did they get funding for this rubbishBy catkins63 (4 reviews) , 11 Dec 2013Dull and pretentious. The worst film I have ever seen. No storyline no point. I really tried to watch this because the photography is beautiful but there is nothing there. They did not need to provide subtitles because nothing made sense in english
