    This was incredible.

    Wonderful themes of re-birth. I also loved how it was abundantly clear that, for the most part, and except for a few instances, his soldier's weapons were useless. Oh, and "Eff off now, Lance Corporal."

    Just got back. Brilliant, powerful movie. Edge of my seat the entire time. The entire theater was dead silent once the credits started to roll.

    Something to be seen in the theater.

    Yeah... theater is a must.

    What a powerful concept. Played out perfectly on camera.

    Awesome movie. Worth the price of admission.

    The whole night scene was shot so well..... That guy better win an Oscar.

    Great.....Great..... Flick.

    Just saw this in IMAX. I must say INCREDIBLE! Blown away at the camera footage and cinematography. Acting was very good! Should win the Oscar as far as I’m concerned!

    do yourself a favor and go see it in IMAX like I did.... Don’t ruin your first viewing on a TV. You’ll be happy you did!

    Went to see it with my wife this weekend. I have to agree that the Cinematography of this film just blew me away.

    This should easily win the Academy for best cinematography. Fantastic film.

    It didn't hold up as well on my second viewing. Some truly great camera work here..... and the night scenes and finale still blow me away.

    But once the schtick wears off it loses some rewatchability IMO

    ha! I was actually just about to post the same thing. literally... everything above from the night scenes to the finale. But yeah, even seeing it for the first time on the big screen a couple weeks ago, I wasn't as taken with it as I was the first time at home.

    it's still a very good movie and impeccably well made, but it loses a little of it's fastball second time around.

    after seeing the second time, it cemented The Irishman as the best movie of the year for me. I was beyond impressed the first time I saw it and have rewatched once, getting more engrossed in it and have even watched bits and pieces of it for a patchwork third viewing as well. It's a harrowing tale of regret.

    I never figured this one for a re-watch. Some movies are brilliant but aren't made to watch over and over again. And some movies are Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    Just saw it I thought it was great. Not my favorite movie of the year but definitely deserves an Oscar for Mendes (director) as well as cinematography. Highly recommend.
