During the 1st 5 to 10 minutes of watching I was thinking..hey this is an interesting premise, here's hoping they can pull it off and make it work to make an interesting story out of it.
But alas, this film got lost on me way too fast due to its poor execution which is unfortunate because I was eager to see where this story would actually go.
What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!
One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
