Rain Man review

A film similar to Easy Rider in terms of traveling as a pair. Reviewing this again to improve this reviewers rating. I remember being truly moved by this brotherly relationship of autistic Raymond (Dustin Hoffman) and self centered manipulative Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise). There maybe times when you feel the screenplay can be a bit iffy, the performances of the two leads however relinquishes any doubts or flaws. Its aim was clear and the portrayal of Hoffman was deservedly rewarded while the underrated performance of Cruise was authentically electrifying with meaty roles that made him a blockbuster sensation. Showing classic films on the tube was a nice homage. Rain Man is a powerful film about transformation, making up for lost time, choices, compassion and change.

Rain Man

“Rain Man” starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman was a great movie. Tom Cruise played Charlie Babbit and Dustin Hoffman plays Raymond who in the movie has Autism. In the movie, there are many instances where Dustin Hoffman’s character Raymond portrays Autism characteristics. One particular scene at the airport touched me. Charlie wanted to get Raymond to fly because he was so determined to get the million dollars that his father left in his will for Raymond. Raymond did not want to go on the plane because he was afraid the plane was going to crash. Charlie then tried to convince Raymond to get on the plane Quantas because he said “they never crashed”. Raymond had a meltdown at the terminal. This finally led Charlie to decide to drive instead. Raymond also did not want to drive on a...

Definitely #48 on my lsit.. Definitely #48

"Rain Man" is a magnificent film with absolutely riveting performances from its two stars Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise.Hoffman plays Raymond an autistic adult who has been institutionalized since his youth. Cruise plays Charley a small time hustler who upon his father's death, finds out that unknown to him, he has a brother (Hoffman) that he knew nothing about.Hoffman reportedly researched his character by spending time with autistic patients, prior to the filming. The results are amazing. He has all of the mannerisms and habits of an autistic person down pat. You actually believe he is autistic he is so convincing. He richly deserved the Academy Award that he won for his performance.Cruise, because of his pretty boy image, is not given the credit that he is due as an actor. In "Rain Man...

A unique brotherly bonding movie

"Charlie Babbitt" (Tom Cruise) is a self-trained hustler who knows how to work people. He soon learns that his father, who threw him out of the house as a teen, has died. He gets upset when he learns that his father left him a classic convertable, and his brother $3-million. A brother he does not remember.

He finds his brother, who is autistic skilled in figuring out complicated mathmatical problems in his head as fast as a calculator, in an institution.

Enraged that he was left a car, and his mentally disabled brother was left a large sum of money, which is something he doesn't understand, he kidnaps his brother and takes him on the road.

On the road, "Charlie" learns much about his brother, and, more importantly, about himself.

Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman are great in ...

Review - Rain Man (1988)

Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise) never knew he had an autistic brother until his father passed away and left his fortune to the elder son, Raymond (Dustin Hoffman). In order to get the money, Charlie decides to take Raymond and become his legal guardian in the Best Picture winning film, “Rain Man.”

Cruise and Hoffman work wonders together. Cruise proves how much of a jerk he can be, while Hoffman gives one of the greatest, most innocent performances I’ve ever seen. You can truly feel the emotion growing between the two characters throughout the film. Their bond works on so man levels that they give the film a deep, wonderful feeling that I believe they didn’t even set out to give.

The story also grabs your attention from the beginning and keeps you wanting more. The film is filled with ...
