    The story progression is painfully slow. I almost fell asleep watching the first 10 minutes of this film. Then I have to click fast forward to see what really is in store for this movie. Sadly there is not much to see. Ghost dog is plainly boring. There are so many dull moments. For example what is with the walking in the beginning of this film. And what's with the birds flying and flyingThe story progression is painfully slow. I almost fell asleep watching the first 10 minutes of this film.

    Hi, I'm Micheal F.'s friend and I just want to clear some things up. Micheal didn't lose faith in me because I didn't like Ghost Dog. He lost faith because I didn't like "Battlefield Earth." By the way, I can tell you another movie Michael F. Likes: "Wild Wild West," in fact he bought it.

    A movie as laconic as its hero, Ghost Dog is nonetheless diminished by its most un-Zen-like attachment to this underlying sentimentality.
  2. It's the kind of movie you wish you had more time to absorb and could see more than once before reviewing.

    Am I the only one who finds the substance of this movie repulsive?
