At first it was slow and annoying to watch, but it quickly became refreshing and rewarding.

Really good movie. It was approached differently than most movies are. The story line is awesome and sandra bullock is a great actress!

As if not in every movie we already spend 1/3 of *********** actors stare out of windows pretending to \"think\", walk forever through looong hallways, drive, or fly in every type of vehicle ever thought-out, stand under trees, or sleep... I funally got to see a movie that consists entirely of walking. Wow.

I didn't think that I would like this movie, but, I think it might have been one of the best ones I've seen in a while. The main character, the 10 year old boy, was such a well developed character, and Thomas Horn was fabulous in the role. Von Sydow spoke not a word, but still managed a masterful performance. So, so for Hanks, and Bullock.

With its re-enactments of that fateful day, Extremely Loud plays a bit too much like one of those perfectly lit, heart-tugging segments TV networks air during the Olympics. It hardly matters that Horn manages to give such a naturalistic, unmannered performance as the young Oskar when everything around him has been so deliberately orchestrated to provoke a specific reaction.

There's a fine line between precocious and insufferable, and it's a line continually crossed by Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
Director Stephen Daldry has taken great care in looking at it through the eyes of a precocious New York City boy in a film filled with both sentiment and substance. Full Review

USA Today
In Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, director Stephen Daldry must walk a tricky line between poignancy and pathos. He occasionally slips into maudlin turf. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Director Stephen Daldry has fashioned an emotionally powerful cinematic testimony about that horrific late summer day. Full Review
