    Good "Remake"

    I never read the book, so I don't know which is more accurate, this new version or the original Clint Eastwood film. They both have their own strengths. Eastwood played the character a bit more sympathetic, though he was still manipulative. Colin Farrell plays him as more of a cad, but works well when his fate is revealed at the end.

    The original movie was the worst of Clint Eastwood's long career. This one is NO BETTER! Saw this for free thanks to AARP. I sat there waiting for SOMETHING to happen and nothing did - at least for me. What a waste of talent. Save your money and spend it on something more satisfying...

    This Blu Ray remake of the original Beguiled by Sofia Coppola is a decent film but moves very slowly. It has a strong casts in Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst and the costuming has good attention to detail. The tension seems toned down when compared with the original.

    Let down

    LetDown

    I've been waiting for this movie to come out for purchase. With such big names I knew it would be a great movie. I was so let down. Very slow starting, middle and end. Now I've paid $22 for it and don't want to watch it again.

    Never thought this was gonna be a great movie? First only saw it because I like Elle fanning as a great actress. But it turned out was an amazing movie from the start. I just wish it was longer and showed more?

    Movie was beautifully shot and had great performances. However, I thought the screenplay could have called for more tension between the characters. Still a decent movie for the price I paid for it.

    It’s Fifty Shades meets Cival War women. The OG ladies taking the bull by the horns! Great development of characters!’

    I remember this film getting lots of acclaim in the theaters so I was excited to see it. It had great character development, but it felt like a let down at the ending.

    A devious little slice of gothic tension, but not without a good hefty dose of humor. Stunning images and flawless performances. Worth it.

    This iteration is full of tension. I love the way it is shot, all natural light. Sofia Coppola has long since been one of my favorite directors.

    Would not recommend this movie. Very slow and no point. Does have a bit of a twist but not enough to keep you interested.

    Director Sophia Coppola does a great job with the original source material, and it has a good shocking ending.

    Somehow we missed this film when it was on the big screen. Glad we found it now. Well-cast and good story.
