Description

The uniquely imaginative Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, Australia) tackles F. Scott Fitzgerald'’s landmark novel, The Great Gatsby, with blockbuster star Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. Spider-Man'’s Tobey Maguire stars as the Fitzgerald-like would-be writer Nick Carraway who arrives in New York in 1922, an era of loose morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick encounters the mysterious millionaire Gatsby and his bewitching cousin Daisy. Soon, Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. Bearing witness to this new world, Nick pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and unforgettable tragedy -- mirroring our own times and struggles.

  • Poor acting and bad “music” ruin a great story

    While quite the visual spectacle, the movie is ruined by bad acting and worse, the horrible, out of place soundtrack. There are also elements which are simply not true to the time period. A big “F” grade to this production.
  • Good

    Liked this version. Well Directed. Well acted. Love the visuals. Set designs. Costumes. Lighting. The music is good too. Glad this is being offered in 4K. Should be.

    A job of a critic is always easy one may say. We don’t risk much if anything our reputation, but this weekend I saw the movie. I rather have seen grass grow, maybe that would have been more entertaining. The movie was just too slow and when it finally turned for the “better” it was a disappointment. I would say recommend this movie to a person you would like to see suffer for two hours. I tried to entertain myself because I was just so bored. Honestly just spend time with loved ones because honestly anything is better than this movie. Thank you.

    The book was one of my favorites to read in high school and the movie might be even better. Every actor disappears into their role but Leonardo DiCaprio is the best in this film. I recommend it!
  • The Great Gatsby is overrated but tells a conventional story

    I have never read the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerlad but based on what i watched from this adaptation of the classic novel the movie itself is pretty overrated but i understand that this movie is trying to tell a conventional storytelling but manages to be loud and pretty dazzling if i say do myself. See when you adapating a novel sometimes it goes off track or if the movie itself is pretty cliche and stupid it might not work out for most directors who create such adaptations with the matrieal of a genius. And that's why the film verison of the classic novel is to different from the actual novel and the film does has a ensamble cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, Elizabeth Debecki and Isla Fisher. The cast members are sure worth the wait for this film not embrassed from the actual source material that this film is trying to capture with style and state of the art visual effects which the actors are able to shine. The film follows desaplined gentlemen Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) a humble man who moves to 1922 New York on Long Island next door to his cousin Daisy (Carey Mugllian) who is married to the concern and newly weed college mate Tom (Joel Edgerton) who is obessed with seeing other women in general. But that's not all Nick Carraway lives next door the lixirous mansion that is owned by millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio who gives a overwhelming but gorgeous performence as Jay Gatsby who is concern about the relationship between Tom and Daisy which sets Jay Gatsby to act in nervous and supicuous behavior towards his newcomer Nick Carraway. The plot is straight out from the novel but the film visual style of 1922 New York was thrilly impressive for many of the shots in the film. And the music is beyond distracting but fits with this movie despite this film being a tradgey between romance and money it still has many flaws to begin with but with Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby was such the brilliant casting choice and as for anybody else all of them gave descent performences such as Tobey Maguire's return to form who plays Nick Carraway who gives a good character for his film as well. I highly recommend The Great Gatsby it's subject material kept me from watching it more than twice because the overloud parties that Jay Gatsby creats is such a interesting world to explore romance and tradgeies.
