Product Description

Holy Rollers stars heavyweight performers BAFTA and Oscar nominated*Jessie Eisenberg ( The Social Network , Zombieland ) and Justin Bartha ( The Hangover 1 & 2 ). Set between the bustling streets of New York City and Amsterdam, Holy Rollers is a story based on true events about an innocent young man, Sam (Eisenberg) who is lured into a dark, seedy underworld and becomes involved in smuggling drugs. As the stakes get higher, Sam becomes ever more involved in these corrupt dealings, as he forgets his friends, family and values. Can Sam set himself straight before it is too late, or is the draw or money, woman and power too great...? With electrifying performances from both Eisenberg and Bartha and featuring Ari Graynor and Q-Tip, Holy Rollers is an intense, dangerous journey and is set to be the next indie smash.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but ... 3 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film itself was a great story but the quality of the dvd was really bad. Poor light quality, (I know, I know ... lots played out on dark streets and dingey clubs) and the sound was terrible. As there were no subtitles for the hard of hearing - which I am not but could have been an option for helping me along - I had to guess at most of the conversation. The plot wasn't difficult to follow so I made up my own lines. No manner of adjustments to my tv or dvd player were useful so I assume it was just the quality of the dvd copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Story 25 Oct 2011
I hadn't heard of this film, but bought it yesterday as a one off because I saw Jesse Eisenberg on the cover and I had really liked him in The Social Network. Another 'based on real events' film from him, but I actually found Holy Rollers to have more intrigue. It also seems to have an impressive list of extra features, which I'm sure I'll delve into with my other film buff friends when I watch this again with them. Can't wait!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Drugs don't work 20 Oct 2011
By MissT
Since seeing Zombieland I have fallen for Jesse Eisenberg, this is such a good film, telling the story of a young man torn morally between what he knows is right, what he thinks is right and what he desires. All of this takes him out of his sheltered religious community and in to a world of Ecstacy, loose women, gangsters and danger. Jesse as usual delivers a wonderful performance (i just love him!), but Justin Bartha - the straight man in the Hangover and rom com top man is really good as the very naughty yosef - the devil on Jesse's shoulder, you will never see him in the same light again after this.

A really good fall and rise tale of drugs, money and religion, I will be buying!

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Moly! 20 Oct 2011
By Amir_HB
I caught this in the cinema and have to say that I love this movie. Jesse Eisenberg is utterly fantastic as the innocent chap who gets caught up in drug smuggling, becomes seduced by the dark underworld and then desperate to get out. Justin Bartha steals it for me. We've seen in in the Hangover 1 and 2 but his performance here is unlike anything I've seen before from him.

I heartily recommend this movie - great story, acting and journey.

Great film, for fans of 70's classics like the French Connection and the Godfather, Holy Rollers tells the story of a young chap who is bound by religious constraints and is tempted by a so called friend in to smuggling ecstasy. Obviously it all goes turbo and there are tears, arrests, fights, guns and running. Jesse Eisenberg who stunned us all in the social network turns in a great performance as usual but its our man from the hangover Justin Bartha who turns in a fantastic performance as the unhinged friend who temps jesse in the first place - this is justin's goodfella's. A brilliant indie film!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent 31 May 2012
By cartoon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Cant understand why this film isnt more well known and loved . Ok it shouldnt be compared to the classic good fellas [ not the same depth of story ] and some of the jews characters do seem a little hammy out of The Jazz singer , But Jesse Eisenberg is great and his whole fall from grace from synagogue to amsterdam is such a great story . Ignore the trashy cover , this isnt a film about drug violence but about the struggle to balance tradition and temptation .

3.0 out of 5 stars A little slow at times 18 Dec 2011
This is loosely based on the true story of an orthadox Jew who gets involved with smuggling ecstacy tablets from Europe into the US and how they hired other orthadox Jews to smuggle the tablets (it is thought they managed to smuggle a million tablets in the six months before they were caught). I was originally drawn to the movie by the appearances of Jesse Eisenberg as the main character, Sam Gold, Justin Bartha as Yosef Zimmerman and Ari Graynor as Rachel Apfel but, unlike previous excellent performances from these actors this was merely average, particularly Eisenberg. The story itself is interesting if a little slow in parts but the dialogue flows well and I still found the film to be entertaining enough. Rent it. 3/5
