Dated but still absolutely amazing.

This movie prefaces so much of what it going on in modern times, along with containing one of the greatest WTF twist endings ever.

Capolla directs an amazing cast perfectly.

(note: many think that Enemy of The State was a sequel to this movie). I completely agree.

Watching this asap.



The scene that may or may not involve Pac-man nearly had me in tears and still cracks me up. I thought it was great. I'd say on par with the first one, although the first one is a better made film. Just go see it if you haven't, it's great.

Great, great movie. It's a shame that the slow burn can be considered dated, since it was used so well in the 70s.

I wish more movies were made like this today.

Pretty amazing to think that Francis Ford Coppola lost the Oscar for this movie to himself.

Watched Brewster's Millions for the first time in decades last week. Terrible ending. What happened to John Candy at the end??

I think that style has carried on in the form of television, since more shows are taking that approach now and are getting made with high film quality in mind (instead of something you just throw on after dinner).
