'A Mighty Heart' , otherwise known as 'cinema verite sans the novelty', would have been a rather engrossing little television film if it had not been beleaguered by terrible cinematography (it is barely a notch above Lars von Trier's appalling Dogme 95 films in this respect), primitive editing, bland acting, and a screenplay with a severe lack of cohesion.

Aside from the discrepancy that ANGELINA JOLIE is white, and the real MARIANE PEARL is bi-racial, the whole movie performed quite well. Movies of this genre (War/Drama) with a documentary element are quite difficult to put together. Professional critics gave it an average 74% review mark, although one colleague close to DANIEL PEARL expressed utter dismay. By and large, I believe that the movie was successful (definitely not so much financially) in trying to maintain the intricacies of cultures, people-group mentalities and other factions operating within the overall problem, that help shed light to complexities of international terrorism crises such as this.

I'm not sure how Angelina Jolie's career could tank any further. I was sad to hear what happened to Daniel Pearl, yet this movie is really the laughing-stock of Hollywood. So bad it's hysterical, which is very bad. Her performance completely ruined the movie for me and she should not have been nominated for an Oscar.

A strongly-acted, but rather uninformative biopic about the tragic events surrounding Daniel Pearl; not much light is painted on why his capture was so much more important than the countless others, and the semi-documentary approach feels obtuse. Not to insult the integrity of the content, but it feels more like a tv movie of the week despite the efforts of Angelina Jolie. Final Grade: C+

when i got this movie i thought that i was going to be really scared while watching it, but surprisingly it was incredibly eye opening and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. angelina jolie does an amazing it the role of mariane. the best scene of the whole movie is when she breaks down after she finds out that her husband has been murdered. it feels so real and it just radiates her sadness, and the fact that on the inside she was hanging onto a small glimmer of hope that he would get back to her unharmed. at times there are so many people being talked about in one conversation that it gets really confusing, and hard to follow but other than that it was amazing!
