Extremely entertaining, Incredibly good! This is my best picture of the year! Had reservations about it b4 seeing because I thought it might be exploitive of 9/11 but not so. Though it was becoming a long, sad picture of a troubled lad and family before becoming a very satisfying ending. Young actor was very good as was Sandy B. But it's the screenplay that was the winner and the directing was also very well done. Bring a box of Kleenex to this one but you will come out smiling at the end. I would not wait on this movie..It's great!

A few days ago I wastch the announcement of the 84th Academy Awards. One movie they mention for best came as a surprise. The film was "Extremely Loud and Incredible Close." I decided to take oin a showing the following. When i came out of the theatre I still shaking my head of why theis film was nominated for Best Picture. I might suspect the reason why they voted for this fim is that they wanted a movie that features Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock. I also suspected that some of the people who voted for the film, never sat though the movie. I sat though the movie and I came away empty. The real reason why I dislike the movie is because the lead. The film didn't center on either Bullock or Hanks, but a young boy who is trying to cope with the death of his father. His name is Thomas Horn who played Oskar. The problem with his character that he's not likable. He's out there in search of a lock that will unlock with a mysterious key. Along the way he brefriend a old man who can't talk. He is played by Max Von Sydow in probaby one of the few good performances in this movie. I don't like the Horn character because he is rude, lies a lot and every time he comes to a dead end involving the key, he has fits. He has plenty of fits.The more he has fits, the less likely for me to like him, therefore I stop caring about the outcome of the film. He could have dial down his character, but he didn't do it. I wanted this film to succeed because of the human aspect of the what happen on 9/11, But two things I like thaqt came of this fim; 1) The mood on the streets of New York City on 9/11 and 2) the Saving Grace performance from Max Von Sydrow. That's all I got out of this movie.

The last 10 minutes of the movie were good but the preceding 2 hours were interminably long and boring. The boy was not likeable at all and seemed so fake in his emotions, or lack, thereof. I would stay away if I were you!
