All The King's Men is a gigantic waste of time and talent from the word go. Steven Zaillian direction is good but his screenplay is terrible, it gives no insight or back story to anyone on screen. This might be the best cast to be in a bad movie, in the history of cinema. The entire ensemble is either Miscast or completely Wasted. It also gives new meaning to the word Slow. The only way this film is worth watching all the way through, is to see if it gets any better later on. It doesn't. What a shame.

Needless remale with an exceptional cast that has little to do; way too much shouting to make much of an impact and demagogue Sean Penn is shamelessly all fire and brimstone. Stick with the Academy Award-winning original instead. Final Grade: C

This was an OK movie. I really wasn't that into it. What kept me watching until the end was the wonderful performance by Sean Penn. I haven't seen the original version. I wonder how it compares. I'd sum this up by saying an OK movie with wonderful performances.

Good performances, but drags

Based on a 1946 novel by Robert Penn Warren, the story centers on "Willie Stark" (Sean Penn), a man whose strong ability to make speeches helps win him the Louisiana Governor's race.

We see the story through the eyes of newspaper reporter "Jack Burden", who leaves his job to work for "Stark". Through him, we see the changes in "Stark", who lets power to get to his head. "Burden" in fact turns into a detective as he looks into the dealings of a judge.

There are some strong performances in this film. Penn is really good, especially where he is delivering speeches. Not every performance is perfect however. There were times that I thought scenes lagged because of the performances.

In fact, the movie frequently lags. I found myself paying more attention to message boards on the Int...
