So much energy and enthusiasm in this film - it's like it never stops. But you can always watch it again to discover more about it. And the special thing about the movie is the fact that watching it again you'll be able to relive the jokes and gags again and again, which never get tired. And there's that double combo of having Fox and Lloyd in the same movie. You'll never get bored of watching THIS movie.
Like "Apollo 13" you know how the story ends, but you are held spellbound as the events unfold regardless. Captivating performances from a superb cast, exciting visual effects, majestic art design and costumes, a sweeping music score and undying love. It's got it all!

This is a good film, but the romance is so sacchrine Hollywood. Plus, although I liked the historical aspects, I felt like people I talked to who said "The boat sank. Get used to it." Still, essential teen viewing, 'specially for those exposed only to "Twilight."
Ryan Gosling is Amazing

While most people think of American History X with its plot about the modern neo-Nazi movement, this film is very different and maybe even more controversial and complex. Ryan Gosling (United States of Leland) is unbelievably good in this, his character's anger is so palpable it seems like he'll explode off the screen. An unforgettable story that examines heritage, hatred, guilt, and violence and its consequences.
