@Shazaaaam

Comparing a classic Hollywood film to an Italian comedy made two decades later is hardly fair?

@demagogo Calling it dull does not make you stupid - it's called an opinion, but what does make you stupid is telling others what they should think about a film or to avoid it completely based on your own conceit.

@K.

A rumor has persisted, fueled by the intense rivalry among fans of the two comics, that Keaton gave such a superior performance that Chaplin jealously cut his scenes so he would not be upstaged by his rival. A close associate of Chaplin claimed that Chaplin not only did not feel threatened by Keaton's performance, but also heavily edited his own footage of the duet while enhancing Keaton's. According to Keaton's biographer Rudi Blesh, Chaplin eased his notoriously rigid directorial style to give Keaton free rein to invent his own comic business during this sequence.

Is this a good film? I don't know.
Do I understand it? I don't know.
Did it have me in a hysterical laughing fit 90% of the time? Yup.

The Blu-ray title menu for this film has Don't Stop Me Now playing on loop. I knew what to expect straight away..

Would have been much better with fewer jump scares, just letting the atmosphere do the work.
Beautifully shot though and I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Stupid, terrible acting, made little sense but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the hell out of watching this movie.

Everything a sequel should be, does not disappoint.

The original film is referenced so well without over-relying on it, there are laugh out loud comedic moments mixed with poignant pauses. I had a blast.

Semi-decent action sci-fi with a great premise but that's about it unfortunately.

The political commentary doesn't stand up when you've got movie cliches every five minutes, bad acting and accents, men in exo-suits pummelling each other for far too long and poorly paced scenes in general.

Thought I'd get bored with a 2+ hour silent film but I never did. A benchmark for what films should aspire to be.

Enjoyable, occasionally gets a bit dull but the strong characters really boost this film. I like that it stands on its own without owing too much to the HP series.

Just wonderful. Very similar to Legends of the Fall but much less melodramatic and more thoughtful.
