Great villain, great story, great ST movie. Slightly better than the first even though its probably 20 mins too long.

Mad, bad, crazy and disturbing heist movie with plenty of comedy and lots of twists and turns. Kinda like Oceans Twelve done by David Cronenberg after he's watched The Usual Suspects a few times... Trippy.

Vincent Cassel is as awesomely brilliant as usual and James McAvoy is growing on me all the time!

Wow!

Rob, the film did actually snap at the changeover point, and then again at the end during the credits. And it was on 18mm stock not 35mm! I got to go in the projection room and see it first hand, something I've wanted to see since I was a small boy! It was pretty cool!

What an absolutely brilliant decision by Broadway and Kino Klubb to show this rare original. I watched through the projection window as the projectionist loaded the original 35mm film - a real blast from the past!

The film itself I remember from late night TV about 20-25 years ago, but only in little snatches - it didn't disappoint. Better than I remember with more humour and classic (pre-CGI) special effects all served up with a dash of overacting, a sprinkling of strong cheese and a full dose of mystery complete with with old fashined crackles and pops on the film and a momentary blank white join halfway through - I thought the film had broken!

I would love to see this digitally remastered both in this original release 94min version and the holy grail of a full 3 hour directors cut... Perhaps one day.

Dark, sinister, threatening, brutal. Not quite brilliant, but very very good if you can handle the menace.

Interesting view of how the start of the financial crisis affected the people who caused it.

Awesome film, Woody Allen back to safe the universe.

Gorgeous cinematography. Fun, kooky story.

Awesome up-to-date (mock?)umentary of Scandanavian Troll legends. Done in the style of The Blair Witch project, but much, much better! Superb SFX for the trolls. Black humour and sub-titles (it's all in Norwegian). Christians, beware! ;-)

Really, really good, but far too short! Should have used much more (any) BBC archive footage (especially the wet race from Donnington in 88). More anecdotes from contemporaries would have been nice too. Good but could have been great.

A very disturbed lady. Very good.

Very funny in places with interesting characters who are easy to like and relate to. Perhaps 10-15 mins too long, but very good with a great turn by the not-an-actor oyster farmer friend.
