i find it hard 2 review this film because i had thought sometimes ratings speak for themselves..but i've come 2 realise, among the other movies that i hv rated as 5-stars this movie clearly deserves distinction.
alrite then...here we go
well i have always loved 2 c a dinosaur onscreen....worth mentioning that i used 2 collect different dino stickers & other stuff..from a very young age...even going 2 a regional science park was merely an excuse 2 see d dinosaur dummy there..
about the movie well.....this was the 1st dvd i ever bought...besides...probably the 1st English language film i ever saw...& even though i hv watched a great deal of brilliant movie masterpieces..honestly no movie has mesmerised me so much.
speaking of the various dimensions of the film..
all the actors in the movie were unknown 2 me obviously at the time i saw it but i dont think any of the characters were improper...the impact they left on me was great.
now if i consider the movie on its technical aspects...it was certainly way ahead of its time.awesome animatrix,brilliant sound editing & above all supreme direction..a special thanks 2 crichton who imagined such a thing & speilberg for making it come alive.
Finally as i see it for the 300th time...i would like 2 say one thing.."no matter how old i get,no matter how excellent movies i see in future...this movie will always remain my #1 movie & my most favourite of all time".
I never wanted to write a review on this film.Why?
Because I believed words are never enough to describe the greatness of the film.Sadly for some of my local friends this was just another drama movie of 200 minutes,so I had to convince them how great this movie really was!
On my fourth viewing I finally admit there can't be any movie so perfectly prepared ever.Describing holocaust is never easy & what Speilberg did was absolutely amazing.Ofcourse there's always this emotional attachment to any other Speilberg film,but if you're able to capture the capability of the film,you definitely got the worth of your 200 minutes.
I became an instant fan of Liam neeson after watching this film,his expressions,his dialogues truly reflected how deeply he was in the character.Watching him was like feeling every experience through your own eyes.Rest of the cast were also very brilliant in playing their parts.I dont think I'll ever applaud any performance as I did in this film.
also a word of praise to John williams for creating such a powerful & wonderful score that not only draws tears from your eyes but also moves your heart & a brilliant quote in the end by Ben kingsley,which really is one of the most meaningful
