Rob from GuysFilmQuest85 - This visual effects filled flick felt firmly grounded in reality, the performances so well captured that it allowed the viewers to delve into the characters. David Fincher was successful in disguising Brad Pitt into the title character, which isnít easy to do with someone that recognizable.
Jeremy M85 - I don't care what anyone says, this was some emotional shit.

Lisa Marie Bowman70 - Has some good moments but overall, it's strangely impersonal.
