Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Ryan Gosling, Rosamund Pike, David Strathairn

Excellent Movie.  Yet another of the many examples of a mediocre movie script, with a lot of really good actors behind the roles, to make a decent movie.  I thought Anthony Hopkins played his role perfectly, and just like in Silence of the Lambs, you almost admire his character’s evil resolve.  On the other hand, there wasn’t a whole lot of originality in the movie’s plot…not even in the twists.  I don’t want to give away anything for you all, but I guessed most of it pretty early on in the movie.  It didn’t matter to me, though,
because I still enjoyed watching it all play out.  The characters were just that good.  I’ll give it three out of five stars, mainly for the acting.  Kids for this movie? not sure… I guess it wasn’t too bad, but I think most of it will go over their heads under 12.
