I just got back and I freaking loved this movie! I'm curious to know what others think.

I saw it opening night.

 

Aside from the twist being extremely predictable about 30 minutes in... it was alright, I wouldn't go see it again.

I had issues with the score, basically being way too intense and melodramatic for no reason (like when they first get to the island).

And Dicaprio as this post-wwii alcoholic detective that was one of the first soldiers to uncover dachau, It's hard to swallow when he's such a pretty boy and looks like he's 16.

It's not best Scorsese, but it's Scorsese, so it's still pretty good. The "twist" isn't really played like a twist, which is good, as that plot beat is stupid beyond belief. All the tie-ins regarding the h-bomb development were fun to tease around, though he didn't say anything particularly interesting, or forcefully.

 

But all that said, a really entertaining movie with just enough depth to merit thinking about.

I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD as I try to avoid the theatre as much as possible. But I love Martin Scorsese movies so I'm sure I'll like this one. It looks pretty good.

Saw in it the theatres and I'm excited to give it another watch when it comes out on video. Though I was kinda hoping the twist wasnt going to be what it was, hoping for no twist at all but it worked out ok i suppose

Have to say I was disappointed as well. I watched it with sky-high expectations and it fell well short. It was still good, but definitely more mediocre than great, in my opinion.
