[spoiler] "If not love...then what?" [/spoiler] I welcome anything that Mel Gibson does, especially in this day of comic hero movies! I think the story is very well written. Acting is first rate as well, Mel Gibson and Sean Penn are both fantastic. Too bad that the lawsuit will dim the prospects of this movie most likely few people will see it and then they will be shocked on Oscar night. Typically, these biopics of sorts are dry and slow moving. This is not one of them. It's fast paced, good dialogue. Fair share of drama and English uptightness. Great movie!

A great film that should nominate Sean Penn for an Oscar. A historical story that is quite interesting and well executed. A movie for cinema lovers as there are no special effects or high speed car chases. Just a great story with great actors.

This is the best effort I've seen from Sean Penn since "Milk" almost twelve years ago. His portrayal of the schizophrenic William Chester Minor who, having spent almost 40 years of his life in Broadmoor psychiatric hospital, became one of the single most significant contributors to the orginal Oxfor More

I really like it. It had a story within a true Story. Which in my opinion made it a little complex and exciting. Good for young adults and up. Teenagers might not find it so compelling but that's just a short time in their life when they're looking for total entertainment and action. This is not tha More

In all likelihood, you will leave this film with a little more of an understanding of how the dictionary came to be, and a little more resentment for Gibson (one of the producers) for pushing this project to happen, regardless of its lacklustre subject. It's pleasant enough, but it's clear England m More
