(Review of the Blu-ray version)

The book versus the film. It's an old argument, and in this case, outstanding though this film is, the book is even better.

Three 11-year-old boys play in the poorer streets of Boston, but one of them is persuaded to get into a car by two men posing as police officers. He's gone for four days and suffers dreadful abuse of a kind that the viewer can only imagine. Then the film moves forwards 30-odd years to the present day, and while two of the friends (Jimmy and Dave) are still in the same neighbourhood, the third - Sean - is now a homicide detective and living on the better side of town. A 19-year-old girl is brutally murdered, and Sean soon realises that she's Jimmy's daughter. Most of the rest of the film is devoted to finding out who did it, and there are some red herrings and surprises along the way. There's something of a race to track down the murderer, because Jimmy's done time and he wants to avenge his daughter's death in his own special way before Sean finds the killer by way of the police procedural process.

This is outstanding in every detail, with a great cast of actors at all levels. Sean Penn is just perfect as ex-con-gone-straight Jimmy (well, nearly straight), and Kevin Bacon as Sean and Tim Robbins as Dave quickly become the characters the readers of the book will have seen in their mind's eye - not necessarily in immediate appearance, but more so in their very different personalities. Penn and Robbins won Oscars for their performances in fact. It's high drama of the highest quality, and yet again hats off to Clint Eastwood for creating such a gem - he must surely be one of the best film directors around today. He produced the musical score too.

Format: DVD
Based on the best-selling novel by Dennis Lehane, Clint Eastwood's flawless movie adaption of 'Mystic River' is now easily one of my new favourite films.

Here is one of those films that will instantly absorb you in. It's a haunting thriller, undeniably bleak and depressing, well written and acted out brilliantly by an impressive cast. Essentially, it is a murder mystery with a great deal of surrounding tragedy. It all starts when three schoolboy friends Jimmy Markam (Sean Penn), Sean Devine (Kevin Bacon), and Dave Boyle (Tim Robbins) are playing in the street. Jimmy, the leader and the 'tough' one of the group gets his two pals to write their names in wet cement where the pavement is being repaired. Two men pull over in a car, posing as policeman and abduct Dave, the 'frail' and 'weak' boy of the trio. Dave is abused for four days but eventually escapes. This tragic episode forever changes the lives of all three.

In the present day, Jimmy's 19 year daughter is brutally murdered and the three men are suddenly reconnected in life. Dave is a suspect and Sean is now a policeman who is determined to solve the case before Jimmy, now an ex-con, decides to take the law into his own hands.

'Mystic River' is nothing sort of a masterpiece. It's hard for me to imagine any of other actors who could better the performances of the men in this film. In particular, Tim Robbins is brilliant as the tormented male who is still damaged by the childhood rapes that he suffered all those years ago. He deservedly won the best actor award when this movie was released in 2003 to receive much critical acclaim itself including two academy award wins. This is now my favourite Clint Eastwood movie, if you have to see it, you'd be a fool to miss out what is my idea of a perfect film.

Highly recommended!

Lets face it, Mystic River was never going to be bad and if it did turn out terrible it's time to hang up the directors hat, because, to my mind this film would have been a cinch to put together. Two things make director, Clint Eastwood's task easy for him: a superb cast and a cracking source novel. I'm not a big reader, but when I found out that the book that this film is based on is from the same author as the brilliant Scorsese flick Shutter Island I knew that I was in for a treat. Was I wrong? No not at all, the story is intensely real and extremely captivating.

Eastwood, very wisely, stays strictly behind the camera, leaving the stage free for the outstanding performances from Sean Penn, Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon. Penn, especially delivers an amazing multi-layered performance as a man in whom rage, grief and honour suffer a head-on collision. While Bacon deserves a mention for shedding his usual psycho routine as a psycho and playing a cop caught in a compromising position with great subtlty.

Where the film does fall short is with Robbins, he has, arguably the toughest role as the child abuse victim, Dave, but his part is worst served by the script, I feel like we should be able to find more sympathy for his character, as fate snaps its man-trap jaws around him, but Robbins' best performing efforts can't quite fill in the empathy-less gaps. I think Dave is supposed to be living proof of the way in which child molestation infects the victim and those closest to him; but by reducing his impact and this theme in the movie, a more routine and far less powerful whodunit structure emerges in its place. Nevertheless, the combined efforts of all three actors add psychological weight to the revenge-driven murder mystery.
