Match Point is brilliant. It's immediately involving, has lot's of edge of your seat stuff and has several great twists, all of which are perfectly plausible. This film was masterfully executed. I reserved one star because it is a bit slow in a couple of places, though the film as a whole more than compensates for this. Well worth the price of admission.
This film is a frightfully slow piece of attempted intrigue. It is a crap version of "closer", but has added illusions of grandeur. Yet again this is a film that tries to become a masterpiece through a couple of bad metaphors that are meant to tie the entire plot together. Still, Starlet is hotter than starwars girl and that gets it 3 stars.
The performances especially by the lead Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is top notch. He plays an ex-tennis pro barely making a living being a tennis coach. A marriage to a girl of a very wealthy family (Emily Mortimer) followed with an affair with a very hot Scarlett Johansson, causes our hero to make a life altering decision. And the... More repercussions of this will keep you glued to your seat and thouroughly entertained. For all those who want to understand our hero a little better, try and get hold of Dostoyevsky?s Crime and Punishment and give it a od read before you watch the movie.
All and all, BRILLIANT movie and a must watch. 5 stars all the way.Hide
