    I enjoyed this film very much! I must start with the actors chosen for this film. Each one I have liked in other films and their mass of performances, and I was glad to see them in this film. It was the first time i watched a film w/ actress Jessica Brown Findlay and she did an excellent job with her role. The story is one that I truly enjoyed. It covered love, heartache of different kinds, gives hope and the magic is pure. The plot does have some storybook similarities but in a dignified way, I guess that appeals to me because I believe in the possibility of miracles. I liked the music in the film very much, it did help establish much of the feeling that the story was portraying. I am the type that always pays attention to film scores and soundtracks during a movie. The song at the end of the movie during the film credits was a perfect touch. I immediately bought it on Itunes it is called "Miracle" by KT Tunstall. I liked this film very much, is on my favorites list and very happy to have in my movie collection.

    This movie is a visually and emotionally rich timeless romantic story of good verses evil. It is meant to connect with the romantic optimistic viewer in all of us. I felt the power of love across time and the possibility of hidden miracles. The cast tells this story through their excellent performances! I found this to be one of Collin Farrell's best performances and really enjoyed Russell Crowe's powerful dark performance. Blue-ray disc and packaging are good quality, the picture and sound are clear, however the aspect ratio is formatted to widescreen TVs and is not presented in the original movie format. The disc includes some deleted scenes and 2 featurettes.

    Unexpected Time Travel Movie

    A movie that didn't quite make it in the theaters but it is well worth watching. Colin Farrell portrays a complex character and the story arc involves the concept of love and compassion juxtaposed across the centuries against the backdrop of "good versus evil". A surprising cameo appearance, I don't want to spoil that surprise. Russell Crowe does not disappoint and if you are expecting Jennifer Connelly to be the lead actress, you are being misled.

    This movie has it all. I, honestly, have no clue why it has mixed reviews, - as you can "read" this movie on so many levels. If you a love story person - you going to love the movie. If you love sci-fi-fantasy - you will be pleased as well. If you seek secret meanings, symbolism, spiritual message- here they are. And its extremely well done and takes your breath away. Watch it! Enjoy it!

    You will know if this film is for you immediately after reading the synopsis. If this sort of story/hopeless romantic/love conquering through time and space film is you type of film (it is mine, but I know many would take issue with some rather big plot devices) you will enjoy it. The cinematography is luscious, and the sound design very fitting. Performances are no slouch either.

    Underrated Movie!!

    This is a great movie for everyone! At first glance I thought it would be a mushy romance movie, but there's actually some great action scenes in it too. The only thing that I didn't like about this movie was that they cast Will Smith as the Devil, I think they could have found someone that fit the part better.

    I love Colin Farrell! I like this movie. However, my mother did not. I think she thought it was going to be a romance. It sort of is, but not really a romantic movie. I loved the late 1890's and early 20's era shots. Cried. Russell Crowe is such a great bad guy. Unexpected visit/character by Will Smith.

    I would save my money on this one and maybe watch it when it comes out for free sometime. I bought it before I had watched it because I do like Collin Farrell and the initial preview looked good, but I really wish I had watched it first. For the ladies, this is not Collin Farrell's best look either.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
