  • There may be worse movies this summer than The Great Gatsby, but there won't be a more crushing disappointment. show more

  • The good news about Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of the Fitzgerald masterpiece is that he doesn't use the novel as a mere pretext for his own visual invention, but genuinely tries to capture the Fitzgeraldian spirit, and for the most part, despite some vulgar lapses, he succeeds. show more

  • So much effort seems to have gone into the eye-popping production design, swooping camera work and anachronistic musical score that the result is hyper-active cacophony rather than enthralling entertainment. show more

    t is a cacophony of nothingness. Too much fluff and tinsel. No sympathy for any character could be felt. P.S. And the blinking green light..Yes, we can see it. Yes, we know what it means More about the movie you can also find it here http://movieinfodb.com/en/movie/64682/The+Great+Gatsby-2013

    When I went to go watch this movie at the movie theater with my 19 yr old daughter, I was not expecting to form an instant bond with her due to the connection this film creates between the early 1900\'s to today\'s times. We absolutely love this movie....we both can sit here and watch it everyday!
