I definitely enjoyed this movie, and I think Sean Penn`s performance is certainly Oscar worthy.
It is hard to imagine a more boring movie - but trying to do so would be a good cure for insomnia
Penn was great but the rest of the charachters had me falling asleep. I like movies that make you think, but this was dull
For all those people who thought this movie was boring are obviously more into films with senseless killing and violence. This movie was a masterpiece from beginning to end. Sean Penn deserves an Oscar!!! BEST FILM I`VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME!!!
OK MOVIE INTERESTING
Did anyone elce notice that you could see the microphones hanging above the actors heads in EVERY scene???!!! It was so distracting I could hardly pay attention to the movie. (and when I the mic`s weren`t hanging I couldn`t understand what they were saying anyway) .5 out of 100 from me.
I kept telling myself it was going to get better....never did. Worst movie of the year
Talk about a sleeper, a group of people walked out of the show half way through, I almosted went with them, but the people I was with were sleeping and I did not want to wake them. I would give this film a 2 maybe out of 10.
I walked out of this movie after an hour and half. I had never walked out of a movie before. I really did not care/was not interested in what happened to any of the characters in the end. Even more than the $10.40 I paid to endure this torture, I wish I could get the hour and half back - I could have painted something and watched it dry...and been more entertained.
I had high expectations for this picture,with the great cast and all but came away somewhat disappointed. It was good but not great. Anthony Hopkins was a scene stealer.
Too many philosophical sayings. Too "southern" - I couldn`t catch all the words. it had its moments - too few and far between - for the most part, boring.
It was completely impossible to get into this movie...it`s almost like you have to know the story before you watch this movie to understand who everybody is and what their motives are. Anthony Hopkins saved this film from being a complete waste of time.
More boring than The English Patient
The original was a great film - the remake is a great mess
A powerful story, well presented. The only thing is I found the strong southern accent hard to understand when spoken fast. Very Good
dull... but great acting
well acted but could`ve been a much better movie.
This movie is terrible Sean Penn waves his arms frantically and speaks like he has a mouthful of marbles. The original with broderick Crawford is a film masterpiece - this remake is a travesty. Rent the DVD of the original
SLOW, SLOW SLOW. Sean Penn`s diaglogue coach should be fired as he never uses the same accent from one scene to the next. Willy Stark should be played as the pinnacle of political evil. Sean Penn`s portrayal borders on the comic.
boring,boring,boring,bad,bad,bad. good acting though sean penn was good but the movie itself was boring,boring,boring and bad bad bad.BrianBebee
Well acted. Lots of "words" long speeches etc - you had better not be sleepy! Jude Law excellent moody quiet mysterious role!
ALL THE KING`S MEN IS A TOTAL MASTERPIECE!!! THIS FILM HAS OSCAR WRITTEN ALL OVER IT!!! SEAN PENN IS SENSATIONAL!!!
