Slow and boring. Skip it.
An astounding delivery of what it means to be caring and what family means. A vivid portrayal of India and Australia. And the plight of children and poverty. It shows how family is close-knit and cares for one another even in extreme poverty and it shows the indomitable spirit that pushes us to search. It also shows the beauty of adopting parents who strive to make a difference in the world and in the lives of needy children. Altogether a gem of a movie. There are also striking scenes that show how Spirit is with us and communicates to us if we heed and pay attention. All actors are formidable including the lead Dev Patel. They also show the real people the characters are based on at the end of the movie. Some are very much alike , Nicole Kidman transforms herself remarkably and even the young Saroo looks like the actor child. A movie based on real events . At the end of the movie, it is poignantly stated how 800.000 children go missing per year in India. An epic movie worth very much going to see. Well made.
I really enjoyed this move with a solid plot and is there all movie long. Affleck is very convincing and loyal t his calling in this jumbled at times plot, great though all in all.
I usually like this style of movie. Bens acting seemed stiff, I didn't really get emotionally involved in his character. Was hoping for more.
Great 1920s vibe with the cars and clothes, and a strong supporting cast, but this isn't Affleck's best effort in the leading role. The movie is just okay. Not great.
I give this MOVIE a 2.5 rating. It was too long and it just dragged out. QUITE predictable it was. The writing was alright, I almost fell asleep. Yonge Vip Cineplexs Cinema really nice incline seats enjoyed it for my first time.
Movie was not bad but it wasn't great either. Ben needs to work on his crying as that was sad acting in itself. The movie had a few opportunities to conclude with a good ending but then he just had a bit more and a bit more and a bit more of the story to tell. By the time it did end I was ready to leave. I like this guy but not really a fan of this movie.
Nonstop action Ben Affleck has done again
Very confusing storyline, poor acting. Long and drug out.
boring to begin with
