We liked this movie a lot. It was well staged,and filmed. It didn't drag, and made sense. It was very much in the spirit of Poe. We liked John Cusack in the role. A lot of movies seem chaotic and poorly thought out. This rolled right along, to a satisfactory Poe like ending. The credits were unique and linked to the story itself. I rarely watch horror films, but going to see a movie about Edgar Allen Poe, I expected to see the Poe story lines--he's the original horror-suspense master. They played off these elements. We generally see a movie every week, and this one worked for us. <more>
Sherlock Holmes and Hugo had a lot of mindless running around. This one had a plot that hung together. I loved the costumes, the atmosphere, and old buildings.
WOW!A thoroughly enjoyable murder mystery thriller with some true story facts to act as a real hook! At the very least, it's a fantastic story, the acting is brilliant good to see Alice Eve and John Kusack in action, but many other brilliantly portrayed roles in addition to them . The cinematography made for an engrossing film that you will definitely enjoy. The pace makes for 2 hours of something engaging and gripping. There's plenty in it to make you jump but it's not gratuitous and adds to the fabulous dark atmosphere that has been brought to us by the same director as V for <more>
Vendetta. If you're tired of the constant comic book based films or needing something with more depth than Jason Statham's acting, this film will help fill the void. Go see it.
The most accurate portrayal of Poe I've seen yet (by lilkittie58)
The Raven was an absolutely gorgeous movie.I highly recommend that every single one of you go see it. First of, let me say that you don't have to be a Poe fan to enjoy it. Anyone who enjoys drama, action, mystery, or horror will love this movie based on the plot alone. However, being a fan of his work certainly makes you feel like part of an inside joke. If you're a fan of his work, I'd recommend brushing up on your knowledge before you go to see it, though. I understood most of the references, but a few definitely made me go "What story was that from againÂ ?" which was <more>
at least slightly frustrating. John Cusack's portrayal of Poe was absolutely perfect, in my opinion. I'm sure we all have slightly different interpretations of what he was like, since we haven't really met him, but coming from someone who's read most of his stories and studied a lot about his life it really met all my expectations. His character was passionate, obsessive, and poetic. At times he seemed witty, at times he seemed completely mad, but there was never a moment when he didn't seem genius.And they really got his drinking perfectly. So many people try to portray him as being a sleazy drunken mad man, as though they've never actually read anything he's written. But I also wouldn't want it to be ignored completely, since it was certainly a factor in his life. They got it very accurate in this movie; they portrayed him as someone who certainly liked to drink, without making him seem like Barney the local drunk from the Simpsons. Over all, there wasn't a single thing I disliked about this movie. In my opinion, it was an absolutely perfect fascinating take on his life and his stories.
Do not listen to the negative reviews because this movie is brilliant. I think the main problem is that people maybe went into this movie expecting a horror movie.The portrayal of Poe is absolutely fantastic, John Cusack did a fantastic job he is a great actor and this one has to be my favourite role that he has played.The movie has a great pace to it. Your at the edge of your seat the entire time, the thing is though if you haven't read any Edger Allan Poe stories you might have a hard time understanding it, but it doesn't matter weather you have read them or not because the movie is <more>
absolutely brilliant. It has its intense moments but honestly you can't take your eyes off the screen it keeps you guessing whats going to happen next.Don't listen to the negative reviews, this movie is a must-see.
The Raven is James McTeigue's new film starring John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe, the famous writer who seems to be experiencing a writer's block, as he has money problems and drinking habits. When a detective Luke Evans comes to Poe asking for his help in solving a series of murders involving Poe's stories, Poe begins to suspect that there's a bigger scheme behind the mask of the killer.Masterfully directed by McTeigue, who previously did V for Vendetta and the fluke, Ninja Assassin , The Raven is a stunning and entertaining set-piece of a period film, mixed with incredible <more>
visuals and intense sequences of suspense as Poe begins to get more involved. The way McTeigue captured some of the scenes was just spectacular, especially the part at the church. John Cusack was great as Poe; at first i was a little skeptical, but when i went to the midnight premiere and sat through the first 30 minutes, i knew that the producers made a right choice. Alice Eve was good as Poe's lover, Emily, but nothing too special; mainly eye-candy if you ask me. Luke Evans was just phenomenal as the Inspector, Emmett Fields; he truly is one of the breakout actors of the decade. The music was very moody, truly capturing the terror of the moment when a body is found or Edgar is on the chase. The script wasn't gold, but it was definitely good material for a film like this; it's not something you see every day, and the way they portrayed the time period was just astonishing.All in all, this is an amazing thriller that surpasses the mistake that was Ninja Assassin but ranks just below the instant classic of V for Vendetta. James McTeigue really needs to stick to films like this.9/10 Stars***
First thing I have to give credit to John Cusack for is award winning performance, and to the supporting cast as well. The movie was great and a great thriller. Not many movie leave me guessing throughout the movie and this one left me guessing all the way to the dramatic conclusion of the movie. There is many different stories about Poe's last few days of life and this one was one of them. If you know the history of Poe then this movie is just amazing and even if you don't really know Poe then movie is still great. My mom watch the movie and she only knew a little about Poe and she <more>
like The Raven. I got to give credit to the producer and directors for a flawless movie and to the writers for a wonderful script. I think the best movie of the year.
I am a big fan in general of "WhoDunnit" movies, and I was keen to see what 'The Raven' had in store. I went in assuming that it would be like any other 'Jack the Ripper'/19th century killer movie and that it would predictable. I was right in my assessment, but inspite of these clichĂŠ's the Raven was a brilliant film mainly because of the following:The movie was beautifully shot. It has a very 'sleepy hollow' feeling throughout. - The use of Poe's work and the poetic climax was excellent. I enjoyed this bit a lot as it left me with things to think <more>
about after watching the film, something which is testimony to the fact that the film made an impact. - Great character development of John Cusack/Poe. Made for a dark, mysterious man with a twisted view of the world. Exciting. - There were many tense moments, great chases and small pieces of puzzle solving like in console games making for small mysteries within one large mystery, thus keeping you engrossed all the way.To summarise, the Raven was riotous ride through Victorian era type settings, keeps you on the egde of your seat, the mini puzzles keep you busy and the plot and character development Poe was excellent, Definitely worth a watch and an 8 out of ten for me.P.S. The film has gore so if you can't stand that, don't watch it. It's not a Hostel or a SAW, but there is gore and blood.
On October 3, 1849 Edgar Allan Poe was found wandering the streets of Baltimore, delirious, calling out the name Reynolds. There have been lots of theories as to what Poe died of, from tuberculosis, rabies or to a drunken bender. "The Raven" puts forth a more romantic theory and a detective story for the man who invented the modern detective novel."The Raven" as a movie demonstrates that you can make a movie that bridges the biographical facts of Poe's life and its own artistic vision and still make an interesting movie. The movie is driven by the premise, a serial <more>
killer starts a series of killings in Baltimore that emulate some of the more gruesome murders in Poe's stories. When the first murder is done inside a locked room, police detective Fields Luke Evans recognizes it as the setting of an Edgar Allan Poe story. Fields brings in Poe John Cusack at first as suspect, but when another murder occurs Poe quickly becomes the first criminal profiler and consultant. Poe helps Fields both in what kind of mind the killer may have and of course in the details from his stories. The killer kidnaps Poe's girlfriend Emily Alice Eve with the killer promising clues as to Emily's whereabouts with each new murder he commits.The filmmakers, director James McTeigue and writers Ben Livingstone and Hannah Shakespeare don't try to recast Poe's character as a superhero or give the movie Poe attributes that the real Poe didn't or couldn't possess. As mentioned before, the filmmakers stick fairly accurately to the known elements of Poe's last few days, although there are some artistic liberties taken, and they still present an entertaining movie with a few twists and turns as to who the murderer is.Cusack is spot on as Poe from his look, thin with a black mustache and goatee, to more importantly Poe's character. Poe was a writer who had the ultimate confidence in his own abilities as a writer and was dismissive of his contemporaries, especially if they were more successful. Cusack is supported by a cast that hits every note right.If you think a movie about Edgar Allan Poe won't have enough action for you, this is a movie for you. If you're more literary minded and think this movie will have too many inaccuracies or violate Poe's character or will throw in too much action, you won't be disappointed.
Not being a big fan of John Cussack I did not expect much from this film... From his feminine voice to his soft features but boy was I pleasantly surprised! The Director did a cracking job of ramping up the suspense and still be able to tease, shock AND surprise even seasoned cinema goers as me. Lots of gore, lots of dare and the entire film was shot beautifully and i think the period was captured superbly too.It was nearly a master piece but just missed out on this accolade by shoddy closure. 5 minutes shorter and it would have been a modern day classic.I would give it a robust 7.8. <more>
