Very disturbing movie. Enjoyable to watch, but not an easy subject-matter. Lots of tears were shed at the end.
Touching and sad. A good movie,but a bit too slow at times. The performances in this movie were marvellous.
Great film,I love the the story. infact I bought this film. The actors were amazing!
unrealistic..they have minds...they did not seem to be brainwashed..I mean they seemed to still have frontal lobes...in the Nickelson filmOne flew over...most were mentally unable to think for themselvesw...but here they were allowed to travel...freedom to move about...why not just disappear..fake amnesia...jump a tramp steamer..become a hooker..get a job as a dishwasher...no one checks IDs...like Paul Simon said "Just slip out the back, Jack Make a new plan, Stan You don't need to be coy, Roy Just get yourself free Hop on the bus, Gus...I could go on but I could have just watched "SALT" for the last 90+ minutes...PLEASE...It could have been so much better
Unrealistic, I can't see human nature not kicking in to save themselves. I saw the romance part as a secondary theme.

Carey Mulligan is amazing actress! and also the actors that were in this film! its like being inside the movie and feeling this film!

Great Story. Carey Mulligan was amazing.

This was an incredibly moving movie. You really cared what happened to the characters in this movie.
I cried - Loved the book too - Carey Mulligan is wonderful in this movie -
Loved the book and loved the movie as well. Well acted and with a storyline rich enough to keep my interest throughout.
I liked this movie but will not appeal to a wide audience..

You'll either like it or hate it - no sitting on the fence on this one
Powerful! This movie is entertaining and thought provoking - a must see!
Really good movie.
Try as I might I could not stay awake at times.No matter what I did and how much I fidgeted ,it was all to no avail.This film is like a narcotized frog sitting on a a lily pad.The script pushed me away;it kept me at a distance from the characters.There was little emotional investment in these characters despite the superb acting efforts of Andrew Garfield,Keira Knightly and Carey Mulligan.If taken in context the passivity of the clones was understandable,but their inability to rebel is frustrating for the viewer.Garfield's screaming outburst at the impossibility of their situation comes to us too little too late.Perhaps this film can be thought of as a philosophical discourse for longhairs o
Brilliant, sad and poetic. Andrew Garfield is amazing again!
Mysterious, touching, depressing,and painful friendship between,Ruth, Kathy and Tommy. Depressing, the knowledge and hard truths, that they are there for one reason; and it is to be donors. Pain of the loss of youth, innocence, friendship and unspeakable sadness at the end.
I think I should read the book because I felt like I missed a couple of things that would of helped round up the story. I think the back story is brilliant but the "love story" is very unappealing to me.
One of the best movies I have seen in a long time...original fictional plot yet so clearly relevant to the truth of the world and what it means to be human stuck between advancement of technology and the unexplained matters that could never be answered with a machine nor with science...So so beautiful...Was still deep in thought even after the movie. DEFINITELY food for thought! Highly recommended to anyone interested in thought-provoking movies with an excellent plot, amazing imagery, wonderful cast and spectacular and realistic film captures and angles.
This is a very thought-provoking and intense movie. It speaks directly to what is happening in the world with genetic engineering and cloning. However, I wonder whether the book answered some questions that the movie leaves unanswered - for example, why do the adult clones not try to escape? Are they monitored in some way that would prevent their escape? In the end, however, those unanswered questions are unimportant.
This movie was really very disturbing. It certainly provoked discussion and offered a great deal of food for thought. However, on balance, I found it very bleak and unrelentingly sad. The cast was excellent, but the treatment of the subject matter left us feeling despondent and concerned for the future of this already troubled world. Had we known the unsettling nature of this movie, I think we would have given it a pass.
Andrew Garfield does it again! I love this guy. Brilliant performance in everything he takes on. (He's our next Spiderman - hope it doesn't ruin his career.) This film is subtle, beautiful and haunting. I left the theatre thoroughly fulfilled by the story, the imagery and especially the performances.
The movie is well done, but still difficult to understand that even in post second world world era that seemingly smart adults, however sheltered their upbringing was, didn't run when they were exposed to the outside world and had every opportunity to do so.
Haunting and heartbreaking. Beautiful scenes. A hard look at what being human means.
The movie really makes you think about the world. Very well done.
Excellent British film, cast, script, what more could you ask? Sci fi undertones but otherwise extremely accessible to all
One could never imagine a world in which humans are cloned in order to be organ donors, but this life is all that the main characters in this movie know. The relationships and realizations they make in their life are touching and emotional. The cast are superb and the music haunting. This is a drama with award potential. It's slow and moving and worth a discussion after watching.
Enjoyed the movie. Saw the advanced screening on Thursday, Sept. 23rd at the Fifth Avenue in Vancouver. Good job done by the 3 lead actors.
The story line is original yet timeless, falling in love with someone who is love with your close friend. The setting is beautiful.
