Perry Kate Very very predictable, including the post credit scene !!!
Moustroll Good movie but grossly overrated
Doomtomylo a film so unique, intoxicating and bizarre that it not only demands another viewing, but is also forgivable as a satirical comedy where the jokes eventually take the back seat.
Bob This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
Floated2 Charlie Countryman in which LaBeouf's Charlie heads to Bucharest after the death of his mother (Melissa Leo). On the plane, an elderly Romanian dies next to him, ultimately leading the impressionable Charlie to the man's vivacious cellist daughter Gabi (Evan Rachel Wood). Falling head over heels with her, Charlie soon angers her gangster husband – a quick-tempered brute called Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen).As hinted by the title and the film's opening scene – with a beaten and bloody Charlie hanging upside down over a dam – it's not likely to end well for LaBeouf's character. But that's only a minor problem in a film that plays like an assault on the senses. It's overly stylized, overly narrated and overly scored, and it comes as no surprise to learn that Bond's background saw him shooting music promos. Although the ending can be interrupted in different ways, which is a bonus for several audiences.
Bri Arce This movie is not as appreciated as it should be. It's a unique, beautiful film that kept me entertained throughout, making me curious as to what would happen next. The dialogue included things you wanted to listen to. Shia was amazing in this--nailed every part. I know what people usually think of him as, but he pulled this whole film together. The soundtrack to this movie just created a better feel to it. It's an awesome soundtrack which also introduced me to some new music. This movie needs to be on your watch list! Definitely one of my all time favorites, it really takes you on an adventure. I never write reviews on films, but I wanted to for this one because it is totally worth it!
NateWatchesCoolMovies I've heard so much bad mojo about Charlie Countryman it pisses me off. For me it's some of the most fun I've had at the movies that year. Experimental? Yes. Choppy? Yes. Perfect? No. Entertaining? Oh hell yes. It's an odd, random film that takes chances and is a bit off the wall, and if that's not your thing then skip her, but it's by no ones standards a bad film. It's just too beautifully made and unique to be written off. Shia Lebeouf plays a young man who's mother has just died. Her ghost (Melissa Leo, perfect as always) tells him to make a sporadic decision, and go to Bucharest. He meets a Romanian man on the plane, who dies next to him. He is ghost as well talks to him, and tells him to deliver a message to his daughter once he lands. He finds the girl, a gorgeous cello player named Evan Rachel Wood, and immediately falls in love. Wood struggles a bit with the accent but is excellent in the role. The only problem with their idealistic romance is her ex boyfriend, a psychopathic gangster Nigel, played by Mads Mikkelsen. Mads shows menace and plays with his spicy dialogue as he plays with poor Shia, like a cat with a ball of yarn. Tensions run high and violence ensues, as it does in these type of stories. I've heard so much hate for this one, including the claim that it's style over substance. Well what's wrong with that? It's made like a music video, and indeed the director got his start with that. If the images, sounds and aesthetic is beautiful to look at and to hear, who cares if it's not the most intellectual treatise or statement on the human condition? High horses, people. For its a kick ass, unique adventure romance story set in a beautiful town with a great cast, wicked writing, and generally just a great time at the movies. Ron Weasley shows up as drug addled tourist, and there's cool work from Vincent D'Onofrio, and a hilarious, perfect cameo from Til Schweiger as well.The soundtrack is great too, with m83 and providing some gorgeous tunes that give the film a huge part of its alluring, lurid atmosphere. If you're not too big on picking movies apart like a Debbie downer and looking for things wrong with them, this is a great piece of entertainment with a solid cast and a supremely stylish vibe. Check it out.
Matt Maximus Lacey I'm just going to point out that there is literally no reason to listen to the bad critics because this movie Is just fantastic.The mix between the action/drama and slight romance in the film makes it fantastic. There are slight errors in the film but nothing you would pick up on unless you were looking for the bad points of this film. Great acting, great cast and great story line which is very compelling to anyone. It's definitely worth a watch if you like these types of genre's in my eyes there is no film that has done it this well.(Don't rate the film on the fact that there are actors you don't like in it)
