  • Slow and boring

    Slow, uninspiring, sleep inducing.

    I was looking forward to watching this, but I was very disappointed with it. It was very "slow" and a little boring. Sorry, not for me.
  • Massively disappointing

    Not sure where to begin.....this was a hugely dull telling of a potentially fascinating subject. The dialogue is often hidden behind an overly breathy, whispered delivery from many of the cast, the soundtrack is invasive and often overblown....the script is leaden.....I can't actually think of a single decent thing to say about it.

    If this movie was a meal in a restaurant, I would send it back, ask for a refund, suggest the chef was retrained with an alternative vocation, put the recipe in the bin, erect a large illuminated sign to avoid the chicken supreme with extra mushrooms and politely decline the offer of a free taxi home in favour of a long walk home in the freezing cold dark rain to try and wash away what I was just about the eat! Terrible movie!
  • A superb piece of cinema

    If you thought this was about her life story you'd be deeply disappointed. It's about one week, the week her husband was brutally assassinated, and how she deals with it. It is an emotion filled, superbly acted and moving drama. If you know nothing of history, are expecting some glamour filled romance, that it is not. It is a powerful, thought provoking piece and Natalie Portman deserved an Oscar. Her portrayal is extraordinary and the concept of the film a masterpiece. Those who voted it a one star should never have watched it. It had me in tears at the end and not much achieves that. Utterly brilliant.

    Jackie is a film which separates the men from the boys. If you need every plot point spoon fed to you, and are incapable of following a non-linear storyline, then this isn't for you. But for those who aren't hard of thinking, this is a fascinating, complex and compelling mosaic of Jackie Kennedy's life between the assassination and the funeral. And at its heart is one of the most extraordinary performances you are likely to see. This is intelligent filmmaking of the highest order. Stunning.

    So after watching this movie which was very tedious and I'd recommend the series The Kennedy's, I can suggest the following alternatives for entertainment. 1) sit at an airport for a couple of hours with nothing to do. 2) be unemployed and watch re runs of Jerry Springer. 3) Put a cheese grater to your testicle

    I found this a beautiful, emotive, and thought provoking film! Sombre as is expected with the subject matter but completely compelling nonetheless.

    Great film. Natalie Portman was robbed of her second Oscar for this. An intelligent and nuanced performance backed up by film making method that complements this. A true collaboration, that works well.

    This is a great piece of filmmaking, intelligent, gorgeous, sensitive, brought together with outstanding performances and a genius soundtrack. Beguiling, mesmerising, transfixing.
