Review Date: June 17, 1998
Director: Peter Weir
Writer: Andrew Niccol
Producers: Edward S. Feldman, Andrew Niccol, Scott Rudin, Adam Schroeder
Some scenes were quite funny, others original...but all in all, the film was basically nothing more than just a few creative ideas plugged into a well-fabricated fantastical environment. Nothing blew me away here, folks! Carrey was decent in his role, but I thought his character was exaggerated at times (Does anyone really greet their neighbours the way he did in real life?? Gimme a break.) Ed Harris was good, but his range didn't go much further than standing around acting cool and arrogant. The rest of the cast were also satisfactory, but no real standouts. Interesting, but nothing more than that.
Overall, this film should fluffily entertain and delight most people in regards to its original structure, style and plot line, but personally, I found nothing "deeper" in it than that. No real reason to go see it at the movie shoppes though. I suggest you wait until its video launch six months from now. "Movie of the decade" ??? I think not. Let's all remember that GOODFELLAS (10/10) was actually released in 1990, people :)
