Never comes off as deep as it wants to. The basic plot is decent, but never too involving. It's all been seen in the exact same way before. The ending brings the only new elements. Predictable, in an acceptable manner. Well done in most other areas. Worth a watch.

Although the book was better, the movie did somewhat of a good job putting the best of the book in it. It is still an all around good movie, and i would suggest it

Mystic River is a smoldering and building violent drama that is full of explosive and fearless performances. Director Eastwood knows how to build tension at the right moments and holds the reins just enough so that the film doesn't go overboard into melodrama. Tragic and moving.

"Mystic River" by Yojimbo

Three childhood friends who share the memory of a traumatic event are brought together once more when one of their children is murdered. Clint Eastwood once again proves he is one of the best directors working in Hollywood with this extremely well acted and written crime drama. The characters on display are far more sophisticated than those found in your average mainstream thriller, and the top notch cast all get to demonstrate their thespian chops with plenty of meaty dialogue as Clint cranks up the suspense with consummate skill. I personally have always found Penn a little unconvincing and his performance here is a little over-ripe as well, but he is a suitably intense protagonist. Kevin Bacon and Laurence Fishburne are totally believable as the detectives on the case, very much in the...

Clint's masterpiece in at #28!

Mystic River is Clint Eastwood's crowning achievement as a director and is a breathtaking and powerful film adaption of the equally powerful novel by Dennis Lehane that examines lost youth and other kinds of loss that sweep their way through a small Massachusetts town where everyone knows everyone. This story opens on a quiet day in Mystic River when three young boys, Jimmy, Dave, and Sean are approached by a pedophile, they force Dave into their car and he is sexually abused for several days before escaping. The story then finds these childhood friends as adults still living in the same town, though their lives have drifted away from each other somewhat. Jimmy (Sean Penn)is now a small business owner content in his 2nd marriage (Laura Linney)and raising three daughters. Dave (Tim Robbins...
