Oscar® winner Matt Damon ("Good Will Hunting," "Invictus") stars in "Hereafter," directed by Academy Award® winner Clint Eastwood ("Million Dollar Baby," "Unforgiven") from a screenplay by two time Oscar® nominee Peter Morgan ("Frost/Nixon," "The Queen"). "Hereafter" tells the story of three people who are haunted by mortality in different ways. Matt Damon stars as George, a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie (Cécile de France), a French journalist, has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus (Frankie/George McLaren), a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might - or must - exist in the hereafter.
I enjoyed this movie and thought it very believable - there were moments when I gasped out loud. I am only new to renting movies on line - and I am not sure about some peoples reviews - who are they - what do they like - is it the same as you? Exactly - I think old Clint has some great directional skills and that is what made me rent this movie - I wasn't disappointed - it is a great journey - and for those who wanted an ending - how do you end a movie like this - it is quite dark - so I am happy with the ending... watch it and make your own decision - or let people you don't know make ;your mind up for you. Your choice.
Def worth watching
This movie had such promise, the story is really interesting and the character's have depth, the actors are great in their portrayal but for me there were two things missing. 1) the ending is awful, you get totally into the story and the lives of some of the characters and at the end of the final scene you literally say "huh...is that the end, is that it" (I saw this at the cinema and I kid you not the reaction at the end wasn't positive). 2) For most of the movie I really did get into the story and wanted there to be even more depth from the characters - I don't think it was the actors, I think it was the script. As an audience I don't think we're given enough info about the character's as the story goes on. I suppose if you like you like movies with that 'unfinished' feel this is awesome but for me I do like things wrapped up - maybe I just really got into the story/characters so I wanted closure for them. Def worth watching, not sure it's worth $25 and owning though.
Clint Eastwood movie. Great movie. Just ok ending. Interesting idea with great twists.
