One of the best films known to mankind.
parts of this movie didn`t make great sence but mainly I loved it and thought some parts were very sad.
very good movie with a good message.
I thought it was very well done. What also made the movie interesting was the premise that the people who run these institutions and deal with varying personalities and ideas on a regular basis, are some of the most close minded individuals, incapable of broadening their minds to include the unlikely.
the movie was predictable. The ending was given way.
Best movie ever
Kevin Spacey originally signed on to play the cynical psychiatrist, but when Will Smith dropped out, he got the role of "Prot." Jeff Bridges came on board as the psychiatrist.
Good, but not great. Was really enjoying it until the plot took a turn towards the dark side. My son and I both left it with a different interpretation of the ending. Makes for good discussions afterwards.
The value of the film consists in doing things differently from Hollywood way: no people die, no people are heroes, there are no special effects. This is a "feel-good" movie. And even if the story is predictable, the acting makes up for it.
