  • The Leopard

    The Leopard 1963

    ★½ Watched 22 Mar, 2015

    Good god, what a bore. It said the running time was 159 minutes, and I don't know what cut that was, but this film ran for a good 3 hours and 10 minutes at least. And after the first 25-30 minutes, featuring some of the worst war scenes I have ever seen, nothing ever really happens. You could cut two thirds out of this film and not lose any of the story. It has no obvious goal and it doesn't…

    Bit of a slog to get through. Funny at times but it just wasn't interesting enough for me. Even the cinematography was uninspired compared to his last few movies.

    Liked it even more now on a rewatch. Damn, this is good and it obviously reminds me of some really good movies from the glorious 80s. Two really great performances from Dan Stevens with his steely azure blue eyes and Maika Monroe, who I'm sure we'll see more of in the near future. Always good to see Lance Reddick. Love the climax, the setting of it and the music, the music is on the whole right on the money. Stevens is damn near unrecognizable from Downton Abbey, it's almost uncanny.

    I like this movie a lot. I prefer the first group of girls, I think the writing is stronger in this part, and we get a little bit of Eli Roth who I think is quite funny in his short appearance. The lap dance is impressive I have to say. Then in the second half of the movie we get the awesome car chase, which is one of the best that I've seen. Kurt Russell is good and his hair looks quite nice too. All is good.
