As much as I like the actors in this, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Viola Davis are basically the only believable and engaging parts of this. Although occasionally interesting and even gripping, it is generally long, stagey and not very thematically or dramatically satisfying. A pla...

The acting is great but the story is slow and doesn't seem to go anywhere. It's a difficult film to get into, and while some scenes are interesting, as a whole it is unsatisfying. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep give great performances, as usual.

Its a powerfu...

Wow, what an intense film, I found this to be a genius movie with a great plot, acting, and setting. Not only was this an intriguing and cool plot, it questions the nortions of a Catholic Church, and the troubles of people who have faith, and the ones who have to question theres...

It's painfully obvious that Doubt is based on a stage play, and in the worst ways: wordplay, for example, scenes that are occasionally agonizingly long, and a "famous last words"-type ending, where stern music and panning away will never quite compete with a falling curtain.
