This review is from: The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button [DVD]  (DVD)Why has this film got a rating of just 3.5? This has to be one of the greatest films I've ever seen. It tells a wonderful story of the life of Benjamin Button, with a twist. Benjamin ages in reverse; so is born as an old man and gets younger during his life. Without ruining the plot; there are around 4 key moments in Benjamin's life that are played out in this very well acted and directed film. The film is read as a story by a character in the film, not a narrator, similar in many ways to films such as Forrest Gump; so if you liked that, you'll love this. Some say the film is too long. I disagree as this is someones rather extraordinary life story, which cannot be rushed.
A truly brilliant film and I would love to see it again!
