A complete departure for Woody Allen with brilliant results. Allen creates a neo-noir that runs its fully-fleshed characters through a series of tension-infused scenes that exhibit razor-sharp, Allen-esque dialogue and dark humor. The cast quietly and subtly acts out a story of obsession and betrayal with excellently.

This movie was pretty cool. Then ending was completely crazy and unexpected. But this wasn't too bad. JRM is always amazing to me in everything he does even if it sucks. But this didn't suck. It was cool.

What Movies Teach Us: (SPOILER!!!) - You can kill. And get away with it. Just make it look like a robbery.

What a well paced film that turns up the tension to an almost unbearable point. Allen's best in years.

Golden Rings and the Lady in White

"Match Point" is probably Woody Allen's best film of the past twenty years. Sure, he has had some flops and misfires, but they all still work. Allen, though a psycho in his personal life, is truly one of film's biggest imaginations and biggest talents. "Match Point" was very well-paced throughout, leaving room for vast amounts of built tension, which I found to be incredibly fed to the audience. Allen never leaves you guessing as to what he means, but allows you as the viewer the freedom to learn for yourself the lessons that are being learned by his very rounded characters. I am not a huge Scarlett Johansson fan, but her performance is the best I've ever seen. She excels in Allen films where she dovetails in others'. Meyers is another hit-and-miss for me, but his performance is ha...

Obsession and lust is like bacon and eggs

I feel really bad it all had to end that way, but who knew what's inside the head of Mr. Allen when he wrote the screenplay. Scarlet Johansson is amazingly beautiful and any man would do anything to have her. Specially a man obsessed shall be caught in between a crossroad of redemption and death. Jonathan Rhys Meyers was not as good but believable in his performance. There are moments were I can feel my pulse racing so you could say the movie worked for me. The whole setting was perfect for a bloody ending (spoiler). Everything else did not matter, even the fact that one could get a way with murder and live happily ever after. The only thing that matters to me is seeing Scarlet Johansson on screen. As I said any man would do anything to have her, I know I would.
