Insipid feature actor & frustrating storyline
I guess it's not Brad Pitt's fault that he left me feeling frustrated for most of the film. However he did agree to play this role and must have eventually gone along with the director's interpretation.
Without giving too much away, because others have a right to watch it and make up their own minds, i was disappointed with how the female lead character responded to the insipid version of Brad Pitt's character, romantically (and more). So little discrimination on her part as to the difference between Joe Black and his "former self"! And in my view even Anthony Hopkins' character was way too accommodating of this unconvincing "angel".
I bought it on good recommendation from someone i normally share very similar taste in movie plots. I'm glad i have now formed my own view. I think the story is weakly thought out and i don't think i am being arrogant when i say i could have done better job with the promising idea on which the story is based. Good movie idea, poor interpretation!Read full review
