This is my first ever viewing of this film, and it is as close to perfect as i have seen in a movie in a long time. i know i get ragged on a bit about my positive reviews, but this is really a must see...Absolute perfect depiction of what hardcore drug addiction can do to a persons life. Jared Leto and Jennifer Connelly are both great( With the latter looking quite sexy, i might add) and this is really one of the best movies i think i have ever witnessed.
one of the most overrated movies ive ever seen along with boondock saints.
You didn't like Boondock? I've never seen it but some of my friends have told me that it should be #1 on my list of movies to watch.
I just looked it up on a few sites; it has a 7.9/10 on IMDb but only a 17% on Rotten Tomatoes.
It's exactly this that makes people say the movie is overrated. My freshman year of college some of my new friends all ranted and raved about how it was the best movie ever, I had to see it, etc. etc. I got all hyped up. Bottom line is it's a pretty good movie that's enjoyable and entertaining, and if you had never heard anything about it you'd give it an 8 or so out of 10, but when people say it's a 10 and it's an 8, then it's overrated. You should definitely check it out, though, because it's certainly worth seeing.
