About this movie, I wasn't disappointed at all. In fact, I enjoy it very much. The set pieces, the make up, the specific effect, and Cate Blanchett's acting are all good. Brad Pitt is....well good, but not good enough to deserve to win an Oscar. Cos, maybe due to the character, his performance is quite....subtle. No much ups and downs in terms of display of emotion. Not sure it has anything to do with the makeup, anyway, I think he is doing a fine job in terms of acting, it basically go with the tone and flow of the movie. The 2 1/2 hours went fine and as the story itself is captivating. One thing that I noticed about Brad Pitt is that, when he was playing a 50+ years old character, he really look like Robert Redford!
Anyway, I would say the movie is enjoyable if you know what you expect. My wife enjoyed that, but not as much as I, cos she got a cold that night. Anyway, I would say that I'd good time in viewing this movie.
