  • Given his built-in appeal, Perry has the opportunity to broaden the subject matter of so-called black movies. He takes a stab at it in "Girls," but he could do so much better. show more

  • Happily, Perry's strength as a filmmaker is that he genuinely loves his actors, and they love him back. What his movies lack in exposition they make up for in performances. show more

  • Subtlety has never been Perry's strength, but his previous films balanced the sermonizing with good humor and sincerity. Perhaps next time, he'll ease up on the lectures, and bring back the love. show more

    The movie was a movie that made you think of love in another way. You can find love even when you are not looking for it. I LOVED the movie and would pay more than once to watch it. I want to send congrats to all the stars in the movie. I want to send a special congrats to Idris Elba because I think he is a very talented actor. I am a very big fan and I hope that you excel in everything he does.

    Its all smoke and mirrors. One chase after another---totally predictable. Noise and more noise. The director,Paul Greengrass, should have studied the 1st, (BourneIdentity), which had heart and a feeling of intimacy; instead he serves up this loud mess.
