0.5 out of 10 Absolutely boring and pointless to watch.
Jeannine from Kerry, 29 Dec 2011
If I see Brad Pitt and Sean Penn names above a movie.... I expect something... cause they are both damn good actors, but why they did this one???????? We started watching with 4 people.... After 5 minutes the first left..... after 7 minutes the second left. The thirds lasted 12 minutes... and I lasted 16 minutes. We just could not watch it...... what is the point?? It is a total waist of time. It is not even a movie.... you can't pick up any story line. A kid dies.... pictures of sadness from the parents... then all these pictures of nature..... clouds, the sea... dinosaures??? Even If I would get paid.. I would not want to watch this film any further. Do I complain often?? No, hardly ever... but this film... don't watch it. It is a waiste of time.

3.5 out of 10 I liked it but hate the fakeness in some scenes
laura from Galway, 13 Jan 2012
Kinda american movie, trying to be very emotional, trying too hard, in which they succeeded to a point that I was constantly waiting for some brutality to happen. Brad Pitt's funny head took a lot away from the movie's credibility, his face would be a constant reminder what Angelina Jolie think of children and charity, children covered in chocolate, a scene what she would approve most best.

2 out of 10 Oh dear
tim from Cork, 22 Apr 2012
What can you say about a movie where about half the movie is showing pictures of space and nature . I can understand where these scenes are included in the film, but when they drag on for more than 10 - 20 minutes then its boring i'm afraid. Tries to say a lot but it takes two god damn long to say it !!

1 out of 10 Weird
Annien from Dublin, 14 Jan 2013
Self indulgent artistic subjective interpretation of the cycle of Life. Close-ups and about 60 min of abstract visual interpretation of how the "big-bang" might have looked. Watched it on fast forward. No real dialog.. very abstract.

What's it about....
The eldest son of a 1950s-era Midwestern family sets out on an existential journey that leads him to question his faith while seeking the answers to life's most challenging mysteries in this evocative drama from celebrated director Terrence Malick. Meanwhile, as Jack's (Sean Penn) innocence slowly erodes, his turbulent relationship with his father (Brad Pitt) becomes the specter that hangs over his every thought and action.
