    Really enjoyed this. I always find that Tarantinos films get better every watch. Ive never loved one of his films after the first watch but grow to love them on subsequent viewings. This is no different but am really looking forward to seeing this again. QT does a great table scene doesnt he? Im sure in a few years time people will be holding this in the same regard as Basterds is now.

    Dont need to say too much. Still just as good on my home 3d tv. Great nerve shredding tension and wonderful visuals make this a cracker.

    Wow. This was something special. Managed to avoid any trailers (usually by sitting with my eyes closed at the cinema!) and was blown away by this stunning film. Even the 3D was brilliant and I don't often say that. Most films I can sit and work out how things were put together but this left me scratching my head a lot of the time. So well put together and ramps up the tension beautifully. Great perfomance from Bullock and i can;t wait to watch it again and also can;t wait to see what Cuaron does next. Great stuff and certainly my favourite of the year.

    W.O.W.s!

    This was amazing fun. Sat like a big kid with a stupid grin on my face for the most of it. I had avoided any trailers and new nothing about it so it was a real surprise to find it more of a comedy than anything else. Sort of put me in mind of Filth, Goodfellas and Wall Street all mixed together into a big bowl of crazy fun film.

    After about a minute there had been dwarf throwing and cocaine snorted of a ladies bum. It kind of carried on at the same pace and with the same level fun. Great stuff!

    Still a lot of fun.

    This was good fun. The last act has enough bang to make this a bit of a cracker. Not overly convinced by the first two acts though. Cant really knock this though as it is good mindless fun. Great epic effects blended with some nice comical gags. There was a dog in the cinema as well that some kid tripped over on his way out which was pretty funny and pretty bizarre. Who takes a dog to the cinema?........I mean a real dog.
