Product Description

Product Description

A contemporary updating of the 1966 classic "Alfie", focusing on a womanizer forced to rethink his superficial existence.

From Amazon.co.uk

Jude Law's Alfie, much like Michael Caine's in the 1966 original, is what you'd call an unrepentant womanizer. He beds 'em but never weds 'em, and New York provides ample opportunity to continue the process--until reality slaps him in the face. Because Jude Law is, well, Jude Law, you can see why he gets away with it as long as he does, and the actor also pulls off the usually awkward trick of narrating directly to the camera. Neither his Alfie, however, nor director Charles Shyer's remake emerges completely without scratches. Law has a Chesire Cat carnality, but he emanates too much intellect to buy him as the relatively dim bulb he's supposed to be. The film, meanwhile, is a bit soft around the edges; the whole thing would have more resonance if it wasn't quite so intent on watching the unrepentant repent. Regardless, it's a surprisingly thoughtful diversion, and there's fine work from Marisa Tomei, Nia Long, and Susan Sarandon as the women who understandably make Alfie reconsider his ways.--Steve Wiecking

Decent remake of a very good sixties film starring Michael Caine.
Jude Law is excellent in the Caine role, in fact he could play Caine in a biographical role.
This is not as good as the original version but it is a good film.

I must confess to having quite serious reservations over the prospect of this movie. Being a huge fan of Michael Caine - and cinema - it was darn near heresy to remake a classic such as 'Alfie'. But, reluctantly, I watched it.
I have to say it was a thoroughly satisfying experience! I studied film (among other things!) at university, and know first-hand that too many critics can be unnecessarily snobby about the films Hollywood churns out. I've started measuring the film ratings I dispense by the level of contentment I felt afterwards.
'Alfie' is a cracking little movie. It bears little resemblance to the original, and is very much a movie in its own right. The film is an ultra-glossy affair, with Jude Law in great clothes walking through great sets and great locations with great-looking women, living a great lifestyle. You get the idea! It's a snappy story of morals, but without ever becoming too preachy. First and foremost it aims to be a slick romantic comedy, and it pulls it off.
I'd heartily recommend the film. I'm willing to bet you won't take your eyes off it and somewhere, deep down, you'll experience a real sense of satisfaction. Jude Law was made for the role (think Dickie Greenleaf!) and proves he's a star by ably carrying the picture. Ultra-solid support from Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, Nia Long and Sienna Miller provides a nice mix of spices. Give it a shot. You may just like it, even though I was tempted to knock off a star for the monstrously egomaniacal post-movie credits from the director (you'll see what I mean...)

This is the story of "love 'em and leave 'em" Alfie, an old school womaniser whose whole philosophy on life is that women love a scoundrel. Alfie, played by Jude Law, knows exactly how to manipulate women, all relationships have to adhere to his rules, and he will think nothing of bailing out without even a goodbye as soon as a more tempting lady comes along. He has a kind of semi-permanent girlfriend but she acts as nothing more a port in a storm he returns to when he wants to hang up his flirting boots for the night. She also has a child that Alfie is genuinely fond of, but this still doesn't stop him from misbehaving with the ladies.

Playing the field seems like his whole reason for existing until he embarks on one shenanigan too many, damaging his friendship with a very close friend. Things then start going wrong for him, including getting a taste of his own medicine from a feisty older lady, and suddenly his cosy world isn't quite as cosy anymore and he starts having serious doubts about his attitude towards people.

The film is very stylishly shot in New York, with the women that Jude Law encounters being equally stylish. Although the film's setting is modern day, it has a slight 1960s feel to it which makes Alfie's world seem even more set apart from the 'real' world that everyone else inhabits.

Jude Law puts in a convincingly cheeky performance, wittily narrating his way through the film and effectively inviting us to come along for the ride and cheer him on as he drifts from one female conquest to another. When things start to go astray for Alfie, he then enters a long period of soul searching and the film starts to lose it's direction a bit and becomes almost like a self-contained soap opera as Alfie tries to redeem himself.

i must admit to being slightly biased towards this film. after seeing Law in 'Sky Captain and the World of Tommorrow' i became a fan of his work and his extrodinary talent of creating a character which is his and only his. despite this being a remake, this is what he manges to do
the film is fast paced and very stylish, with a great soundtrack and exciting cinematography. i do, however agree with some criticisms that the film seems to lose its way somewhere half way through, and it has less of a storyline, more a structure of episodes of Alfie's life. due to this my boyfriend (who i dragged along to see it with me) got rather bored in the last half hour or so. the film also lacks a satisfactory resoloution, in my mind, although the last scene is probably Law's most impressive.
so go and see this film if you want to see a slick and stylish film, with great acting from one of the most attractive men in the industry, but not if you want a complex, thought provoking plot, or a straightforward story with a beginning middle and end

Like many films before it, Alfie has the look of being a sharp, witty and well produced film with Jude Law as its front man. Yet unfortunately the film fails to deliver any of the above. Never really taking off due to the lack of a story, the film fails to grasp the audience and leaves them after two hours with a distinct feeling of wasted time.
Although the film does have it's good points. The film looks classy, boasting a well dressed cast and a few good one liners from Law. Jude Law yet again continues to show why he is a leading man in Hollywood through his acting abilities and if you are a particular fan of him then you will no doubt find reason to buy this film.
Yet apart from the good looks of Law, which the film tries to live off, it boasts nothing other than a script which forgets the story half way through the film and an undoubtedly unthought provoking movie.
