Water for Elephants
Life is the most spectacular show on earth.
In this captivating Depression-era melodrama, impetuous veterinary student Jacob Jankowski joins a celebrated circus as an animal caretaker but faces a wrenching dilemma when he's transfixed by angelic married performer Marlena.
I’ve always had a weird relationship with Water for Elephants. Having loved Waltz’s performance in Inglorious Bastards, I was excited to watch him return on the screen again; however at the same time, I felt a feeble amount of hesitation after learning that the lead was none other than Robert Pattinson; the very same who graced our televisions with Twilight, and truly left a mark in our hearts. And of course Reese Witherspoon, who was drunkenly shouting ‘Do you know who I am!?’ in my head.
When the film first entered Netflix streaming it took a number, and waited patiently; knowing that my interest will always wander onto better things… oh shit did you know Fargo is still available to…
It's handsomely made but when an elephant out-acts the cast you know it's no classic.
Quería escribir una reseña ácida y graciosa de una oración, pero no sirve ni para eso. Te odio Water For Elephants.
I'll watch any old guff for some Pattinson face time.
All 3 marks out of ten for Christoph Waltz.
I had been wanting to watch this film and as much as I thought it would disappoint I was pleasantly surprised. It was a sad film with a cliched happy ending, and as an animal lover I shed a few tears.
The acting was very good, especially by Rosie the elephant, but also for all the humans involved. Even though it was sort of a cliche love story I still felt it had a interesting enough story to hold my attention and engage me till the end.
I really enjoyed this film and, although I might not watch it again, I feel it was a good way to pass the time.
Pārsteidzoši OK bija, bet man laikam patiktu jebkura filma ar Krištofu Valcu
I really enjoyed this book and felt this was a strong adaptation. At first I was concerned about the casting, but actually was very impressed with their performances. I think this movie is touching, funny, entertaining, and romantic. I usually font care for happy endings, but appreciated it here. Visually pleasing, romantic, and heartwarming from start to end.
When most films marketed towards younger audiences are defined by manufactured special effects hinging on spectacle, it's a rather picturesque delight to see a sincerely involving teen-geared movie, comprised of real people and lifelike sets. The production designer has fashioned a convincing one-ring circus, and even the train itself has a persona. What becomes most intriguing about the story is another mammoth spectacle with a much more sympathetic persona, the 53-year-old elephant Rosie. Rosie goes through a kind of hell in order to become a heroic figure in the story, which makes it worthwhile in spite of its trite trappings.
The only reason this film has any redeeming elements is Christoph Waltz (and Robert Pattinson isn't the worst, but far from Cosmopolis).
This was oddly watchable. I don't know why but it just was.
Wow, one of the worst examples of onscreen chemistry I've ever seen.
Better than I thought it would be. It's also nice to see the director work with real animals, for a change.
Hated the ending!!!
