A plot that wants to be intriguing is terribly boring, bordering on trite. Maguire is absolutely miscast and his horrible performance nearly derails the nmovie before it gets started. Clooney basically stands there looking, but not acting, A plot that wants to be intriguing is terribly boring, bordering on trite. Maguire is absolutely miscast and his horrible performance nearly derails the nmovie before it gets started. Clooney basically stands there looking, but not acting, like an iconic period figure, confused. Only the great Cate is up to her cypher of a role. Of interest only to those who find vintage film stock and camera lenses interesting. Expand

Lots of promise in this one: great cast, terrific director. But no rewards for this viewer - the script is terrible, tediously dragging everything along with it.

After reading the novel the film was nothing but a complete disappointment.

One of the most unbearably pretentious movies I have ever seen. Go rent the Third Man but don't see this movie, It's a complete hack job. Tobey Maguire is completely miscast and its painful to watch.

1 out of 10 for taking notes while the film crew watched The Third Man during pre-production (although they forgot to take down notes on characterization, plot and conveying emotion) Seriously, do yourself a favor and rent the far, far 1 out of 10 for taking notes while the film crew watched The Third Man during pre-production (although they forgot to take down notes on characterization, plot and conveying emotion) Seriously, do yourself a favor and rent the far, far superior The Third Man, and don't bother with this painfully anal homage.

A huge disappointment. It was in no way similar to the very good book -- a very poorly done movie -- convoluted and impossible to follow -- the characters shallow. A complete waste of time!

I could not believe after watching this awful self indulgent load of rubbish that I had actually guessed the outcome in the first twenty minutes. And the end, my god, Casablanca?

And the end, my god, Casablanca? Did the writers of this film have any clue that the script was such a lemon? Dreadful Dreadful Dreadful. All the actors however were brilliant, loved them all. Sad the film had such a dud story. Expand
