A script that doesn't carry the movie that much. The movie has some really slow scenes but normally i like slow scenes because it's building up to something, well not this movie.

A striking, artistically directed and well acted piece. It's dark and cold presentation is alluring. At first I thought these aspects were to enhance the meaning behind the internal nature of the characters. But alas, I found nothing beneath the surface of the shiny exterior. The film left me cold and wanting more from it's dry story and characters. Such a shame, because I did enjoy the style and performances.

A weak script threatens to sink Stoker throughout. The storyline is at times silly, confused, and forgettable. However, in the hands of Chan-wook Park, it's the striking, sumptuous visuals and brilliant editing that elevates the film and makes it worth watching. Not only that, but Kidman and, in particular, Wasikowska give delicious performances that are impossible to turn away from. It's all style over very little substance, but what style it is!

Creepy family movie #3186

Stoker is from the director Park chan-wook, a truly incredible director, who made one of my favorite foreign films of all time: Oldboy.

Even though Stoker is not as good as Oldboy, it manages to still be a very impressive movie.
It is ripe with things I like to see: Troubled characters, philosophical dialogue and the question of sanity. The overall look of the film is pleasing to the eyes, as well.
Mia Wasikowska has come a long way since Alice In Wonderland and I am surprised how many risks she takes in this film. You could definitely tell she wanted out of that typical PG-13 zone and in my opinion pulled it off here quite smoothly; she's very talented.
The dialogue is beyond creepy, the storytelling is frightening and some shots in this movie are just masterful. Seriously. Stanley...

Review: Stoker

Stoker is a competently made, occasionally creepy film that needed richer substance and a compelling final act to make it a good film. It's slow burning and very poorly written. The script doesn't provide these strangely fascinating characters with much justice, and ultimately sends the film into a state of blandness and predictability in the second half with an ending that's rather stupid. It's not all bad, as director Chan-wook Park establishes and sustains a pretty creepy atmosphere and building curiosity in the film's first half, alongside an undeniably scary performance by Matthew Goode (who plays the one character I actually enjoyed). However, once the final 50 minutes come rolling in all of that tension gets thrown out of the window and the film takes the stupid turn. It's not at a...

Stoker review

"What a tragic waste of life." From the director of the Vengeance trilogy. Compared to his trio of a masterpiece which this critic admired, the violence here is tamed and toned down. The father of India Stoker's (Mia Wasikowska) passes away on her birthday so Evelyn (Nicole Kidman) takes care of her. India is introduced to Richard's brother Charlie (Matthew Goode), who she never met before. Charlie tries to connect with India, but she resists. Aunt Gwendolyn (Jacki Weaver) visits the Stoker's.

UNfortunately Mulroney's role is limited and not much has been divulged with regard to Charlie's condition for his shocking actions. Nevertheless, the performances were believable, Camera direction was spectacular as always coming from the director and the soundtrack adds to the tension...
