Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Here are two things I never thought I'd say: I like a movie about fly fishing, and Robert Redford has directed one of the most ambitious, accomplished films of the year.
Rotten: Redford's movie is too little show and too much tell.
Fresh: A skilled, careful adaptation of a much-admired story.
Fresh: In its determination to emphasize character and thoughtful content over formulas and facile sensationalism, it's a movie that's proudly out of step with Hollywood trends.
Generally a person who is so well known and liked by so many, they usually have many flaws and the people who like that person probably have brain damage for liking that person. That said, this is the complete opposite of Brad Pitt, he's an all around well actor, I've seen him in almost every genre of movie and he just knows how to make it work. He has a natural talent for it. Okay enough about that, more about the movie. This movie is just absolutely amazing, it's a very simple tale but delivers on many other levels.
I loved this one! It's sad but is more realistic than most and its got a little humor too. and p.s....if you guys want to buy this so badly, then why not go to a video store??? hmm?
The Point Between Reality and Nature
Love this movie so much. Who would have though something as simple as fly-fishing could bring out everyone's soul. In a way where you can push reality aside just for a moment for you to relax and not have to think. However, this movie is much more than that. In a way it can be considerd a lesson in life. We must both learn to cope with growing up and adapting to life as well as finding peace with our surroundings and just letting go. It's a beautiful movie. The point between reality and nature.
