Brad Pitt pointlessly grows backwards. It's trying to be 'Forrest Gump' but doesn't have any story to tell, just randomly selected, disconnected meaningless vignettes. Ponderous, boring and it goes on FOREVER. Perhaps it was all the makeup that restricted his facial expressions, but Brad Pitt's acting was as wooden as a kitchen table. Sleep inducing.

Basically, a troll gets younger as each year goes by and believe me, that takes just as long as it sounds. Go see it if you want to see and old man pervert a small child, get on a small boat, live... More in a small cold country while steadily getting less and less wrinkled. I could see the same thing after getting out of long bath.
The only light relief was an old man who was continuously struck by lightning, this however was also mercilessly stabbed to death by the time it was shown for the 3rd of 7 times. This "film" was void of any interest, emotion, acting ability, engagement and every other aspect that could make any motion picture watchable.
To compare it to other movies would be wrong. I prefer to compare it to having my fingernails slowly pulled out while having a fat man sit on my face, at least that’s what Brad Pitt must have been threatened with to accept this role which he carried off without a hint of enthusiasm or display that he had ever acted before. Don’t go to see this movie, as Benjamin gets younger and younger, you must endure this lifeless tale while you only get older and older.Hide

I went in excited to watch this movie but halfway through it got quite boring and to be honest very unbelieveable..I like to go in and feel engrossed in the movie especially when you are paying so much for a movie and popcorn...this movie was not one of them i came out feeling like i had wasted my money and may as well of waited until it came out on video and when i say video i mean $3 weekly :(

Oh dear, numb bum syndrome set in after two hours and it was difficult to concentrate despite the beatifully crafted sets and detailed cinematography or the acting skills of the principle actors -Tilda Swinton was the standout for me. This story could have had more light relief and at least half an hour shaved off which would have given it some pace.However still an original idea for Hollywood and for that top marks.

This film is extremely well doneand it hit me emotionally on many levels. I didn't even mind the fact it was 2 hrs 40 minslong as it was that good. Brad Pitt plays his role extraordinarily well alongside a standout performance from Cate Blanchett. Highly recommended to anyone, especially those who wish to delve deeper into the real meaning of ageing itself.

i thought that the film was a bit boring ! but it wasnt what i expected ! it was different ! and funny . with the guy that always said "have i told you about the time i was struck by lighting ?' that was funny !
i know that the movie was not for my target audience but i still enjoyed it !
plus when brad pitt went younger into his teens he looked like he just had botox ! =D LBMO !

Yes, it's quite slow moving. And the aging effects are quite gimmicky to start off with. But once the love story bit gets underway, and Brad Pitt begins to look a bit like the Pitt we know, the movie gets into its stride. Quite melancholic and subdued. Really enjoyed it. Perhaps could have taken a few more risks.
