msishak - 13 January 2023 An original and great story. Dont Trust The Critics Or The Masses (normies) 3 people who made a pact of friendship in Amsterdam were separated and reunited years later but unwittingly caught up in a mysterious and sinister conspiracy. This is the premise of Amsterdam. It is a story of love and friendship. But the way the story is told, its wrapped in a tale of conspiracy and mystery. And it just has so much colour and quirkiness to it.
It's an original story in a sense that you dont see these kinds of movies being shown anymore. You dont know what to expect and you don't know whats going to happen. But you're interested and vested in the story and characters. That's what a good movie is about. THE STORY AND CHARACTERS. A good movie can stand on its own without big budget explosive scenes.
There are too many movies these days where you can sort of tell what will happen next. Its formulaic. Even those that aren't, the tone of the movie can be monotonous. This movie mixes love and friendship WITH a murder mystery AND conspiracy BUT the story is told in a light, comedic and quirky fashion. Name one movie that DARES to mix all these elements together and does it right.
I see complains about pacing, that it's boring, it's hard to follow. Are we as an audience too dumb these days to follow a good story? About the pacing, is it slow or jarring? No it is not. Because each scenes moves meaningfully to the next with a relatively fast pace because it shows alot of details that describe the characters, relationship between characters, events that bring the story forward.
I'd say, this is amazing and tight writing. If people hate this movie for the pacing, then they would hate LA confidential as well, which is a fantastic crime mystery movie also.
We need more movies like these. More films that dare to be different and has a class of its own.
giulsgaleazzi - 8 January 2023 Amazing I don't understand the reason for such a low score for a film like this. It is inexplicable because it is really a quality product. I am already a longtime fan of David O. Russell and I must say that this film met my expectations. I am glad I watched it without being influenced by the negative critics because it really surprised me so much. I loved it from the very beginning. The cast is really stellar, and the performances are masterful, the film is very enjoyable and easy to follow, it draws you into the story and is very engaging. I liked the cinematography and the characterization of the characters. Very much approved and highly recommended.
