If there was one film in 2006 that suffered because of hype and ratheruninformed critics, this would be it. First, the magazines played it upbecause of the all-star cast and fantastic source. Then, all of sudden,the nation's movie critics decided it wasn't what it was cracked up tobe, and piled on it. One problem with the critics is that many of themclearly have not read the book. Richard Roeper complained in hisnewspaper review, for example, that the movie never shows you how Starkwent from bad to good. Well, having reread the book in anticipation ofthe movie, I can state emphatically that that is because the book neverexplains it. Take your pick critics: is your criticism going to be thatit's unfaithful or that it followed the book? Furthermore, the move isNOT a remake. The original All The King's Men movie, no matter how goodit was, focused the story on Willie Stark. The real story (and thisversion) is focused on Jack Burden (which is why the whole backstorywith Anne Stanton is thrown-in). To call it a remake shows howself-centered Hollywood can be (as fans of Brokeback Mountain are nodoubt ruefully aware).

Now, what I thought of the actual movie: first and foremost, Sean Penngives a absolutely brilliant performance, one of the best I've everseen. I saw a Huey Long documentary a couple month before the movie,and Sean Penn evokes him magnificently. The scene where Willie Stark isstumping the state is simply film-making brilliance, as are his severalhauntingly shot speeches. Jude Law gives a fine performance, as do allthe supporting actors, especially Patricia Clarkson, who nails SadieBurke. Some people had a problem with the accents, but I thought thatJude Law and Kate Winslet did adequate impressions and did not loseanything for it. And of course, the power of Warren's story shinesthrough the whole movie. I do not personally know anyone who did notreally like the movie.

Why did it not work with people? I'd say two reasons: first,first-person narrated classics are notoriously difficult to translateto film. Another example that comes to mind is The Great Gatsby, whichhas a similarly detached narrator, and did not succeed despite RobertRedford, Mia Farrow, Karen Black and Sam Waterston among the ensemble.Second, to be brutally honest, if your favorite films are normallycomedies or horror movies, you won't like this kind of movie.

All I can say is that I am surprised and somewhat astonished at thenegative piling on. For any moviegoer who likes an epic story ofhumanity and politics in their harsh reality, All The King's Men is amust-see.

I was fortunate enough to catch the premiere of this movie and I amendlessly pleased that I did so.

There have been comments about the miscasting, but from what I haveseen, this is mostly relating the movie to the original. All of thepeople that I talked to said that they liked it and that the actorsportrayed the people really well. These comments came from natives ofNew Orleans.

The movie itself is gripping throughout most of the some 2 hours. Thevisual and auditory effects do a great deal to enhance the story. It isevident that the actors put a lot of passion into their roles and thefact that they returned to New Orleans for the premiere shows that apart of them went into the movie.

All in all, the cast is great, the sound is great, the movie is great.

I saw the New Orleans premiere of this movie, and my friends and I allthought it was amazing. The way it was written by Zaillian (straightoff of the book, not an adaptation of the previous movie) was great.And the cinematography added so much to it. Sean Penn is an amazingactor, and that really shows through in the role of Willie Stark. Itwas kind of funny to watch Anthony Hopkins use an extremely badLouisiana-British accent. I am a fan of history, so lots of littlethings worked their way in to amuse me. And seeing New Orleans thingsand knowing right where they are was a great thing. I recommend peoplego see this movie, as I plan to go again on Friday when it opensofficially.
