    Mystic River - 10/10

    Mystic River (2003)
    Synopsis: When Jimmy Markum's daughter is found murdered, his childhood friend Sean Devine--now a detective--is assigned to the case. Sean's personal life starts unraveling, as his investigation takes him back into a world of violence and pain he thought he'd left behind. It also puts him on a collision course with Jimmy Markum, a man with his own mysterious dark past, who is now eager to solve the crime with brutal justice. And then there is Dave Boyle, a man who hides monstrous secrets beneath a bland facade--secrets that his wife, Celeste, is only beginning to suspect. As the race for a killer heats up, all are pulled closer toward an abyss that will force them to face their true selves--and will mark them as irrevocably as the past itself has tainted their lives.

    Yeah, the previews look really good, but I hope it doesn't suck. I don't really like to hear there is Oscar buzz for a movie that hasn't even been released yet. I'll wait for more reviews from "real" people as opposed to critics before going to see this movie.

    I saw Mystic River yesterday andI thought it absolutely magnificent. Incredible cast, Sean Penn was awesome. I think Clink Eastwood did a wonderful job Directing, you can tell that he realy loves actors. Other than being a terrific mystery, this film also dealt with loyalty ,family and compassion. Marcia Gay Harden had some of the best scenes. And as I read the credits at the end, I saw that Clint Eastwood composed the music to this gem.

    Saw it Saturday with my wife. We both really enjoyed it. The acting was tremendous. Good story, too.

    This movie was both so good and disappointing at the same time...

    No real spoiler information, but don't read on if you want to go in with a clear mind:


    The acting was incredible, with fine performances put in by everyone involved. But this movie was SO DAMN predictable!!! I thought the answer to the "mystery" was very evident about one third of the way through the film. When everything unfolded just as I thought it would... I found this to be very annoying. I thought maybe it was just me, but I took a quick survey of my friends and most of them found it to be irritatingly predictable as well.

    Having said that... I KNOW the point of the story is the relationships and the inner demons, and the acting, and the interaction between the characters... BUT I couldn't help feeling the disappointment.

    Anyway, recommended... but annoying.


    PS I thought the score was weird and didn't really fit the mood of the film...
