A "C Grade" movie. I don't know how Natalie Portman could lower herself in such a movie. Only watch if you enjoy listening to the swearing. No meaning to the story.
Natalie Portman was not in it very much and I assume the budget went on hiring her as a recognized actor to get people to want to see it. DONT BOTHER
Well, the acting is excellent and I rather enjoyed it. However, "Hesher" is an appalling human being and the movie is totally unrealistic. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is great as is the young boy but the movie seems to be try-hard quirky just for the sake of being quirky. Not what I was expecting.
Have you ever watched a movie where its just one horrible plot development after another? You want something good to happen. You think the character's lives cannot get worse and then ... they do, again and again. Cliche-ridden; filled with gratuitous content (who wrote this anyway? teenage stoners?); and really, you know what the ultimate point is going to be. But it takes so long to get there.
Sometimes the place at the end simply isn't worth the painful journey.
Not the worst movie ever, but not the best. I thought it was ok but my husband hated it.
I found this movie a bit slow and boring. The main character looked like his tattoos were drawn in with texta pen. This is one of those movies where you wonder what a good actor, such as Natalie Portman, was thinking when she said yes to this movie.
What a waste of time and talents. A very boring flick with good actors is still a stinker. I was bored to death.
An unusual and unlikely drama. Joseph Gordon Levitt is the best actor out there in my opinion, he's so good in this and when you weigh it up against his other performances you see how exceptional he really is. An affecting and moving drama about loss, with the truly unforgettable character of Hesher thrown in the mix.
For the first 5 minutes I was worried about this film - would it be another depressing movie about loss? How wrong was I - like the main actor, I totally did not understand the motivations of Hesher. This is a great film, one of the best quirky films I've seen - Hesher, the person, is some type of angel and he leads the other characters through their grief in surprising ways - but you'll have to watch the movie to see what those ways are. Totally recommended - my nan would love this movie.
Hesher is a tough little movie - lots of language and some cringeworthy behaviour, but for all that I thought it was an excellent film. All, the actors were good, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt (who I last saw in "Third Rock from the Sun") put in a stunning performance as the title character. It has some slow moments, but all in all a great movie.
If you want to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt play a character almost the polar opposite of Hesher, check out 50/50!
Pretty boring, didn't seem to have much of a story line.
Very interesting but a little bit boring at some points. The volume is at two extremes, Loud or Silent. That made it hard to watch as I was changing the volumes the whole time. Still not bad.
A young boy has lost his mother and is losing touch with his father and the world around him. Then he meets Hesher who manages to make his life even more chaotic. A great watch with young Devin Brochu the standout actor in this.
Best film I've seen in a long time. Hilarious character.
Watch the trailer and you will get the vibe of this movie. Gordon-Levitt is briliant. Some language is not for the faint of heart but if you don't mind that you might like this indie/low-budget vibe film.
i think i was expecting something better..was dissopointed.
Hesher was an awesome movie with great drama about a family that is all messed up with this man involves himself in this family and get real interesting and it is also funny, great movie.
Joseph gordon-levitt is such a talented young actor. He's in some amazing other films. Watch and you will love "brick", 500 days of summer, stop loss, and I hear he's perfection in 50/50
