A very good movie, excellent acting with a very satisfactory conclusion
Gloopy studio fodder for some "retarded gorillas", to use the expression from the film. Avoid (if not a gorilla...)
A classic movie with great performances complete with a great script. One of my favourites.
It's easy to see why this movie won multiple Acadamy Awards! It is absolutely Brilliant, an original concept! ! ! One of the best acting performances of Robin Williams career! ! ! This is a must see film an absolute classic!
nearly turned it off but as I got into the story it got really interesting. Well acted by all lead actors, Matt Damon is one of the best and Robin Williams was superb. 10/10 for this one
An entertaining story, well paced with good casting.
I enjoyed the movie but unfortunately there was a fault in the disc, so missed some of it.
This movie is pure, unadulterated bs. Robin Williams should be ashamed of himself for playing in it. The most memorable thing about this movie was Robin Williams relating how his dead wife used to fart so loudly while sleeping that it would set the dog barking.
A cleaner turning out to be a mathematical genius? If you believe that for a moment you are a con man's dream.
What utter nonsense. A waste of time.
its not bad, its not good, its fantastic
We loved this movie - great performance by Matt Damon
This film is bogus. Fake scene after fake scene peopled by a bunch of fake characters - none more so than Will himself. If Ben and Matt didn't have some screen writing textbook open in front of them as they wrote this tosh I'd be very surprised. And the ending. Erk. That this was an Oscar winner for anything at all is baffling.
Streetwise tough and mathematical genius must face his personal demons before moving on to a better life. Although the performances are uniformly good the story doesn't quite convince.
What a surperbly written, directed and acted film. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon won and an Academy Award for the scrrenplay, and Robin Williams won one for his best supporting role, when you watch it you will be able to tell why. The supporting cast which includes Minnie Driver do a particularly good job. The swearing in this film has been mentioned as a downside, but i think it adds a realness to the characters, these boys live in South Boston and are living on or just above the poverty line, words are spoken short and sharply with no room for misinterpretation. I particulary like the monolog given by 'Wil' in why he should not work for the NSA. Overall an enjoyable film one that can be watched over and over without loosing any of the magic it created the first time around.
Fantastic. Best movie that I have watched in a long time
The language is a bit over the top. It takes a while to get into it but it's all good in the end. Love Robin Williams.
Without a doubt, one of the absolute best movies I've seen in a while!!! Definately see this movie!
Little wonder that won the Oscars - a really great movie.
A great movie but at times the swearing is a little overwhelming.
Very interesting and enjoyable movie. Would have rated it higher except for excessive use of the "f" word.
While it is a good movie the ending is a little too pat for such a hard nut. Otherwise good but almost too glib.
Brilliant, great journey from ignorance to brilliance.
A wonderful movie and superb acting. Bought tears to my eyes.
