Good looking. but empty, that's all that I could say about "The Great Gatsby." A movie which has the l,ook but lack the acting ability to make this movie succeed. I saw the trailer for this movie and I was shock. It said from the director of "Romeo and Juliet" and " Moulin Rouge." And they failed to mention "Australia," my favorite Baz Luhmann movie? That is outrageous.The movie would rather deal with how beautiful the background looks rather than dealing with the most imprtant aspect of a movie and is acting and Director Luhmann has failed to do just that. Leomardo DiCapiro, toby Maguire and Carey Mulligan did their best and their best wasn't good enough. They all dressed up with no place to go. This is a famous novel by F. Scotgt Fitzgerald and that movie has failed to translate the book to screen. This is the fourth remake of the movie. There were three earlier remakes from 1926, 1949 and 1974. If you ignored me and still see the movie, I hope some one in the audience will be inspired to read the novel. It will be a lot more entertaining than the movie.
This movie is an absolute piece of crap. I still want to know how I can get a refund on the overly priced Saturday evening ticket prices. What a complete waste of money.
Lifeless acting,boring movie
