3.0 out of 5 stars A lethargic psychological prison saga 18 Jan 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Stone features Edward Norton (Fight Club) as Gerald 'Stone' Creeson, a convicted arsonist who is becoming eligible for parole having served "8 out of 10 to 15" years. His Parole Officer is Jack Mabry (Robert De Niro), a man who is seemingly emotionally detached from the rest of the world and most significantly his marriage. Stone is not as stupid as his pseudo-street mannerisms would suggest as he tries to manipulates Mabry into helping his parole recommendation with mind games and his wife on the outside; Lucetta (Mila Jovovich - Resident Evil: Afterlife).

The majority of the film is shot in Jack Mabry's office as Stone and Mabry discuss Stone's eligibility to rejoin society. However Stone manages to slyly turn the conversation into a matter of the differences between the two men; insistent that there is little to differentiate them from one another except for the fact Stone has got caught. Days away from retirement and with the spotlight on himself, Mabry struggles to counter this argument and faces difficult moral decisions in how to handle Stone's wife Lucetta who is lasciviously pursuing him. Will he give in to temptation or stay on the moral high ground?

This film was a box-office bomb and honestly I'm not surprised. It's an interesting concept that the film wrestles with for it's duration, but ultimately it feels very drawn out as the laconic conversations really start to become monotonous. Jack's relationship with Lucetta is stilted and predictable and Norton's street accent really grates after a while.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacked any sort of meaningful resolve 17 April 2011
By The Truth TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
There was a lot to like about this film to begin with, and throughout there was a sense that there was something profound around the corner for all involved. Sadly as the film progressed that something failed to materialise.

The film was a slow burner and a haunting score added to the tension and feeling something big was instore for the characters. The performances were good I thought, and testament to this is the fact that De Niro was outperformed by his co stars, Norton and Jovovich.

I found myself ingrossed to begin with as the story played out - and with an underlying theme of religion and sprirituality - I was truly expecting something of biblical proportions to wrap things up. Sadly though, the film just kind of fizzled out.

For me, the film started well and looked promising, but in the end failed to deliver anything spectacular and although enjoyable in places but lacked any sort of meaningful resolution and failed to deliver the final bang we were lead to believe was instore.

The Blu ray wa good quality but the extars were rubbish - just a making of documentary and a couple of very short, rubbish interviews. I would say there is very little reason for the extra outlay on Blu Ray so save some money and get it on DVD if you decide to buy it. But think twice about as I only give it a score of 3 out of 5. In fact, I don't even think this film was released at the cinemas; says a lot.

Format:DVD
This film received scathing reviews, and was released on DVD only, and I can see why - the 'Stone' character is laughable. A shame, as 2 great actors and a good idea is lost here.

DeNiro and the sometimes brilliant Edward Norton star in this average psychologist drama film, which accidentally veers onto black comedy. They pair up again after the excellent 'The Score' in 2001, with DeNiro's films having been not so good since then.

It starts off very well, being serious and powerful in the unsaid. Then psychologist DeNiro meets 'Stone', a white man with braids - a street talking criminal. Stone is detestable, comical and odd - and that is what the film becomes (Ali-G anyone?). However, I still think DeNiro puts in a rateable role, and this should please a some DeNiro fans.

Mila Jovovich (Resident Evil) also stars, with her perfect teeth, as Stone's dirty girlfriend. The racy elements aren't sexy and add to the film's awkwardness.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish! 4 April 2011
By Bobby
Format:Blu-ray
Being the huge Bobby DeNiro and Ed Norton fan that I am, it pains me to say that this is one of the most depressing, boring and just plain rubbish films i've ever seen - and i've seen a hell of a lot of films!

It's not that any of the actors are particularly bad, it just doesn't go anywhere. It's start with DeNiro and Norton sitting across the table talking to each other and continues this for virtually the entire film - except for the parts where Deniro inexplicably shoots off to bang Milla Jovovich?!

And by talking I don't mean Tarantino-style scriptwriting that keeps you gripped throughout, I mean just very boring talking.

There have only been about 20 films in my lifetime that I have turned off halfway through having given up all interest of ever seeing what happens at the end and sadly this is one of them. I did fast-forward about another 20 mins just to see if anything livened up but it just showed more scenes of these (in my opinion) legends sitting across a table talking to each other - and after an hour of this already I could cope no more, so off it went!

It's a sad reflection that two of the other films on my 'abandoned mid-way through watching' list are 'Righteous Kill' and 'Meet The Fockers' - both starring my idol DeNiro!

Such a sad, sad shame.....
