Excellent move

This film is BORING. I realise he is Irish, but Colin Farrell's Irish brogue was so exaggerated I could hardy understand a word he said. I should have left about midway through the film like the guy sitting close to me did. I hung in there hoping the film would get better but it never did. A total waste of time and money.

A story thet goes nowhere. A questionable sound quality - at times, the muffled speech is very difficult to understand Although the ambiance triggers high expectations, the script is a total fraud. The the story evolves painfully slow and boring. I wish I would have spent my time reading the Yellow Pages, it would have been much more exciting. I did enjoy Pete's coffee, served at the counter at

The road is rocky when the story speeds up to take care of business, with the end a mad dash to tie up loose ends. Still, there is enough saving grace on these craggy shores to let the mists and the legends roll in and envelop you for a while. Full Review

Why didn't Mr. Jordan spend more time grounding his self-enchanted script in some semblance of reality? Unlike "Splash," this film finally goes plop. Full Review

Ondine looks heavy and it ends up feeling a little slight, but between those two extremes there’s a beguiling siren song of a movie about the way the unexpected has a way of intruding on even the most fatalistic lives. Full Review

Mr. Farrell and Mr. Doyle continue to hold your gaze, even as Mr. Jordan’s screenplay sets your mind to wandering. There is, as noted, a wisp of a tale tucked into this film, one that, as the story wears on, becomes ponderously weighed down with melodramatic filler and even some halfhearted genre action.

This redemptive tale set against southwest Ireland's moody seascape holds its tangible charms. Full Review
