So well done on so many fronts. Probably the most stressful movie I have ever seen--the wife was on the verge of a full blown panic attack in parts. And yet one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring films I have ever seen.
Agreed. I was physically and emotionally exhausted when I stood up during the ending credits. My girl was death-gripping my hand the entire movie. We both completely forgot about popcorn and candy. All that existed was the experience for ~90 minutes. It was awe inspiring if not a completely perfect movie. I'm not sure if it's something I want to see again as I want that experience to remain pristine in my memory and unsullied by anything less than the first time seeing it at an IMAX.
I feel like Jolie, the original sought after lead, would have been harder to connect and feel empathetic to, at least I think so. Bullock was superb even if she had a few scenes where her performance was weaker than the rest of the movie.Edited by whiteslashasian - 10/5/13 at 10:49pm
