Format: DVD
Match Point may offer a change of locale and style for Woody Allen but it does nothing to redress the continuing decline of his work. It's not bad, more flat, partially because of some awkward dialogue (Allen really doesn't have an ear for the British dialects, going either for Dick Van Dyke or Medieval King-speak) and some uninspiring lead performances. Social climbing tennis pro Jonathan Rhys Myers, the poor man's Jude Law, says all his lines correctly and with almost perfect diction without ever convincing there's anything but an actor who'll never fulfil his early promise underneath, but it's Scarlet Johannson who is the film's most surprising casualty as a struggling actress. Faced with such awkwardly on the nose dialogue and such a stock character, she visibly flounders for much of the first half of the film as if cast adrift by a director afraid of interfering with the actors by ever directing them no matter how apparent it is that they need help. Supporting players are mostly left to do their best with one-note parts to varying degrees of success (Matthew Goode, Ewan Bremner Alexander Armstrong), laziness (Brian Cox, Paul Kaye) and embarrassment (James Nesbitt and a startlingly inept Colin Salmon). The second half does improve, though there's the definite feeling that Allen is dodging the issue in the potentially promising but unintentionally laughable closing scenes, and some of the dialogue is painfully amateur. With its shades of A Kiss Before Dying via the Martin Landau plot strand of Crimes and Misdemeanors but without the interesting bits, this never really feels quite like a proper movie. A bit of a plodder.

As usual for a Woody Allen film, no extras on the DVD.

Awful film. It lacks everything, the characters are one dimensional, and the film is full of cliches. I am shocked that this a an Allen film. Maybe the foreign setting threw him into the typical American stereotyped image of British society. There is no feeling in this film, and the acting is wooden (no pun intended). Match Point = Point Less I'm afraid.

Format: DVD
I found this film totally compelling from start to finish, and it seems to me that Woody Allen does a remarkably good job of transposing his style from Manhattan Island to London's well-heeled set. At one point we see a character reading Crime and Punishment and in a sense what happens in the film is just as extreme, amounting to a similar kind of wager that Allen pulls off with great style. Part of this is attributable to the excellent acting. Emily Mortimer is amazingly good as the wife, and Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers make the sexiest of illicit couples. It is probably the most blatantly erotic of Allen's films, where the eroticism is played straight, which is both required by the film and a way of using his actors' particular assets to the full. The casting of Meyers seems a particular coup to me, in that you feel another actor would not have been as good. He is uncannily able to suggest a kind of detachment while somehow remaining enigmatic and eliciting just the right degree of empathy for three quarters of its running time. If there were none, the film would fail. The fact that Emily Mortimer elicits more is what makes the film successfully balanced; but the Meyers character is very reminiscent of Dostoyevsky's hero in this regard. Although not laugh-out-loud funny the film has a subtle humour in its incongruity, and is entertaining without ever being slick. It actually reminded me of Louis Malle's Damage in a number of ways, but the tone is less sombre; altogether it stands as further proof of Allen's extraordinary range. Perhaps in the final analysis it just lacks a bit of soul, but in its own terms it is brilliant.

Format: DVD
When I saw this movie, I didn't realise that Woody Allen had made it until afterwards. Which is to say that it does not conform to his usual comedy recipe. In fact, this is a very different Woody Allen film; you could say it's a tragedy rather than a comedy. Either way, Allen is a skilled storyteller. Match Point is an excellent study of just how far people will go to get ahead and stay ahead. Scarlett Johansson is utterly desirable as the girl that Jonathan (Bend it like Beckham) Rhys-Meyers should end-up while Rhys-Meyers himself steals the show with a totally convincing performance as the ambitious Tennis Pro. The other actors including the ubiquitous Brian Cox play well observed characters. Together they set up the plot very well. I notice that the film has garnered less than universal praise from other Amazon reviewers. This is because it is a film - like many of Allen's other offerings - that requires you to think and draw your own conclusions. The film is full of twists and turns and keeps you guessing right to the end. For all these reasons I highly recommend it. it is a perfect DVD for a night in.

I am finally at the end of a 20 + stint of Woody Allen films and up until now the vast majority had been very watchable – true! Just for the record, - 5 stars - 8, 4 stars - 10, 3 stars - 2, 2 stars -1, & now 1 star - 1.
Right from the off I sensed that the acting here was like watching the local amateur dramatics… and a bad one at that! It was wooden, hammy, and at times a bit embarrassing? How could a cast as good as this turn in such an appalling effort? The lead role was abysmal, he murdered this film and seemed to drag everyone else down with him. The “Oh Mummy, Oh Daddy, Oh Darling, we really must popsy wopsy into the West Endy Wendy this evening to watch that adorable Turandot with that utterly divine Nessum Dorma ” overtones were just nauseatingly laughable.
It really was like an overdose of a posh East Enders in town, in fact, if Grant & Phil had gate-crashed the party; it would have been a vast improvement! Perhaps Dot Cotton should have been the love interest?
I can’t recommend one performance that stood out – they were all at the same level … dreadful! The storyline was ordinary, the script utterly banal, or the manner in which it was delivered, and I’m scratching my head to think of one redeeming feature. Sorry, but this is two hours of first class dross – avoid, avoid, avoid! I have never given one star before, but this film actually deserves it with flying colours!
Woody has gone on record to say that he felt that this is one of his better films? In fairness, it scored very well on RT's & IMDb and It's screenplay was nominated for an AA, so what do I know! Kate Winslett apparently did a runner just before filming was about to begin( clearly well informed) but the film still made 85 million$ from a budget of 15million$ - one of Allen's bigger success's.
