    Synopsis


    The Lovely Bones
    Fourteen-year-old Susie Salmon (Saoirse Ronan) is just experiencing the pangs of first love when she's viciously murdered by her neighbor Mr. Harvey (Stanley Tucci), a predatory wolf with a deceptively mundane appearance. As her family slowly begins drifting apart while struggling to make sense of their loss, Susie bravely attempts to find her footing in the hereafter. Meanwhile, down on earth, Mr. Harvey is feeling confident that he's covered his tracks well enough to get away with the crime, and begins honing in on his next victim -- Susie's younger sister, Lindsey (Rose McIver), who's beginning to suspect that he's not the harmless suburbanite he portrays himself to be. Director Peter Jackson reteams with King Kong and Lord of the Rings trilogy co-screenwriters Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh to adapt Alice Sebold's bestselling novel for the big screen. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Its not the best but its good

      My girlfriend read the book years before the movie was even thought of being made. She loved how the movie started how the book did because it captured that little detail that people love. As far as the movie went, it captured the main parts of the book because lets face it. Its near impossible to include every little detail from the book into the movie. The acting was fantastic, and the world that wasnt heaven or earth was amazing. Peter Jackson captured the passion of not just the main character, but the family and the killer as well. The only reason this is not a 4 star movie for me is because its not my kind of movie. If your loved the book you may like the movie, but if you didnt read the book Id rent the movie before purchasing it.

      This is a story of the “intermittent-life” after a wrongful-death until the right-side is served, and it’s both an interesting and powerful story about a young girls murder that is accompanied by a superb inventive sound- track, very competent sound-effects and surprisingly striking-good cinematography. Mark Wahlberg’s grief scenes were as believable as-it-gets as was his quest for the truth. Saoirse Ronan portrayal of Susie is nothing short of brilliant. The story-line contains enough surprises to hold your interest and you will enjoy the view.

      The movie is good especially if you can get the 2 disc special edition. It's well worth your money. However you can't because Best Buy has SKU or item number is wrong. So every time you get the 2 disc edition, you're going to get the singe disc standard edition. From what I know, they haven't fix it yet. 3/28/2015 The movie itself gets a 4 star from me. Recommend everyone to get the 2 disc edition

      Underrated and worth your time

      This film deserves much more than Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic surmise. Excellent performances from the cast (especially Stanley Tucci) overcrowd the film's shortcomings of an ambiguous (and strangely connected) afterlife landscape. I'd imagine it would be difficult to watch if the subject matter hits close to home, as the worldly sections of the film are so well done. Definitely give this one a shot.

      Captivating

      This film was much more compelling than I was expecting and from the moment it started until the end I was glued to my seat. My son told me that this was a film that I should definitely see and he was so right. I highly recommend this movie to both fans of Peter Jackson and to fans of suspense mysteries.

      This movie is for anyone that has lost a child, it is very colourful but at the same time very heart wrenching/heart warming, makes you want to keep a closer eye on your kids, especially in this day and age. The bluray version is absolutely outstanding, the best picture quality I have seen since Avatar.

      I gave this 2 stars, because it was supposed to be a 2 disc special edition & when I received it, there was only 1 disc. The movie however was superb very well told story & great performances by all cast members.
