Product Description

Baz Luhrmann writes, directs and produces this adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan. Set in the 1920s, the story follows aspiring writer Nick Carraway (Maguire) as he moves to New York and becomes intrigued by his neighbour Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio)'s lavish lifestyle and mysterious past. As Nick finds himself caught up in the world of the wealthy, he witnesses romantic entanglement and betrayal. Gatsby's true nature is slowly exposed and his involvement with old flame Daisy Buchanan (Mulligan) ultimately leads to tragedy. The soundtrack was overseen by Jay-Z and features music from, amongst others, Beyoncé, André 3000, Will.i.am, Lana Del Rey and Florence and the Machine, as well as Jay-Z himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes! 24 Jun 2013
By Lola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Firstly, please do not let the title of the review fool you - Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" is not just a visually stunning production, it is a great piece of cinematography, wonderfully adapted script and first class acting by the leading cast as well as all the extras. Mr Luhrmann's is one maverick of director, who never shied from over the top productions, and together with great (truly fatastic!) acting by Leonardo DiCaprio and the amazing soundtrack recorded by the most famous names in the contemporary pop - this is a miracle recipe for the greatest Gatsby!

"The Great Gatsby" is visually striking, which is no more and no less that we've come to expect from a Baz Lurhmann's film. Lurhmann never held back from producing and directing stunning works of art. But, compared to his previous works (perhaps with the exception of Romeo + Juliet [DVD] [1996]), which were beautiful and entertaining, but somewhat lacking depth, "The Great Gatsby" has all the important components of a great film.

Lurhmann's attention to detail is admirable, the Scott Fitzgerald's book is read through the cinematography, the director is faithful to the writer's work. Baz Lurhmann is truly pushing the envelope in portraying the overblown madness of the twenties' glamorous living. You can feel the craziness, you experience the insanity, the hysterics, you are living for the day. But beyond its themes of wealth and craziness and obsessing on living for the moment, "The Great Gatsby" is a wonderful, beautiful and tragic love story. It's a twisted romance. It's an instant classic.

DiCaprio is amazing as Gatsby. He is charismatic and charming and dark and complex and so in love with Daisy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 10 Aug 2014
Format:DVD
A woeful travesty of a great work of literature. Where to start? The irritating and misplaced sound track? The acting and leaden script The green screen sets that made me feel I was watching Harry Potter? Or was it just the complete lack of feeling in this woeful movie? I hit the stop button after enduring it for 15 minutes in the hope it might improve. It didn't.

Baz Luhrmann's use of popular music, rap and modern dance set in a period drama was very original in Moulin Rouge because it suited the bohemian story of Toulouse-Lautrec, who was a pioneer of the new and decadence at the same time. The art scene in Paris during the 1920s was experimenting in the unconventional. So to implant that style into a story about dangers of excess could work, but in The Great Gatsby it fails utterly because none of it felt real. The use of CGI is reminiscent of the Star Wars prequels. There was so much of it that it lost all resemblance to normality. This was a 1920s that no one would recognise. In the inability to believe what you see is real than any character development or sympathy went out of the window. It could make for a spectacular music video but for a feature film it lacked soul, depth or interest. Leonardo DiCaprio was the only saving grace. The narration by Tobey Maguire is awful and Carey Mulligan phoned it in.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tale 9 Sep 2013
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The Great Gatsby is the tale of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio - The Departed) a war veteran with a colourful and incredible past. With the high society in the Long-island towns West Egg & East Egg, Gatsby throws parties of the highest-order impressing all of the locals with his Gothic mansion, art-deco interior and lavish spending on entertainment. But as Gatsby leans on newcomer writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire - Spider-Man) and confides in him, it becomes clear to Nick that not even all the money & respect in the world can satiate Gatsby as he hungers after married Daisy (Carey Mulligan - Drive) - will Gatsby get what he wants and at what cost?

The Great Gatsby is a grandiose affair, the styling of the 1920's lifted straight from the pages of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel of the same name. Resultantly, we have huge set pieces of the lavish parties and splendiferous surrounds of the Gatsby residence. What follows is more a monologue of Nick Carraway lamenting Gatsby's indifference to anything but Daisy, almost as if his world exists only to please her and the extent that he will go to have her. Ultimately, TGG is a fantastically well filmed affair, credit to Baz Luhrman (director of other grand show-pieces such as Moulin Rouge) lasting just over 140 mins. The whole ethos of the film reinforced with the noticeable but not unlikeable CGI usage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Middling 6 Aug 2014
By iggi_1
Format:Blu-ray
I didn't really care for this, in contrast my partner absolutely loved it.
The early part of the film irritated rather than entertained, picked up once DiCaprio appeared and ambled along to the conclusion.
Pretty to watch, surreal at times, note the large number of digital artists listed in the credits.
