So much average
If you like to be scared, if you like to laugh, and if you like to learn a thing or two at the movies, this absolutely cannot be missed.
It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
Perfect story, great acting. Movie for whole family.
The story of professor John Nash is incredible and the movie was just very good in portraying his tragedy and what he had been through was only his beautiful mind that is facing the impossible and was good in expressing his wife's struggle , love and patience with him and both was performed incredibly well by Russel and Jennifer , both deserved the Oscar not only Jennifer. However Ron Howard did a good job in the movie that I think he didn't really deserve his Oscar cause the movie really could have been a lot better with lots of tears and of course a lot of other meanings from that genius person's story and only depending on the warm music and performance of the leading actors wasn't close to what this story could have become with another more intelligent director. By this I don't mean to Underestimate his good job in the movie but I guess many other awards agree with me that he did a good job but didn't do his best only the Oscars that refused to give it to Peter Jackson. The story too didn't focus on his smart and the people around him more than it focused on his problem and tragedy that I felt he was a genius person his tragedy prevented him from using his mind and his family suffered to make him better. The whole cast was superb and the music was the feeling of the movie very warming and passionate. Don't miss it.
Personally I have too many favorite films from Russel Crowe , with lesser known roles coming to mind but this movie makes it to my Top 5 Russel Crowe films because of his flawless, as in flawless portrayal of a math genius who is battling paranoia. It only takes a bit of a push button from " conspirators' and his powerful imagination to create a mental havoc that takes its toll on him. Jennifer Connelly is also magnetic as the wife. This film is as beautiful and sad as it can be.
Overall pretty good film, director could have made it shorter though. Bing.com
