Charles Chaplin achieves a spectacular landmark direction and features miraculous visual effects in what is his most iconic, memorable and, arguably, his best comedy. The tramp is put in epic situations and he responds with equally epic and genius originality, from the tilting cabin to the heartwarming, tear-inducing, smile-causing sausage-dance sequence. Finally, a king of comedy was born and started to grow rapidly. 100/100

The Lone Prospector: "Don't forget the bacon". The story is about a man ventures into a new life looking for gold when he falls in love with Georgia. Will he strike it rich? Silent. Charles Chaplin directors and stars in this silent film and as usual it is funny and well done. The effect's in this movie was pretty damn good if I got to say. this movie was made back in 1925 and the effect's sill look better today. This is in my opinion not the best Chaplin film but a lot of hard work was put into this movie and I got to give them two thumbs up for that.

Fun comedy from Chaplin. The stunt work has a loose physicality that makes it both funny and slightly dangerous. The sweet sentimentality in the story adds a wider range of emotions, making this more than just another slapstick farce. Fairly enjoyable.

The first of Chaplin's classic silents that he converted to a sound version with narration. "The Lone Prospector" (Charlie Chaplin) encounters a fugitive (Tom Murray as Black Larsen), a lady he falls for (Georgia Hale as Georgia) and a burley inspector (Mack Swain as Big Jim McKay). Though the plot is much wittier and more fulfilling than Chaplin's pictures, it lacks that certain charm, more interesting characters and laughable (meaning laugh out loud scenes) moments. Nevertheless, the score, settings/setpieces, eloquent narration, his spectacular performance and ability to make you smile is impeccable. Highlights include the enigmatic "roll dance," hallucination of him being a chicken, cabin tilted in which Big Jim and the Lone Prospector trying to escape and the shotgun conflict. …
