I will never buy dvd movies from Amazon.com again. The past 3 times I ended up with different regions dvd that did not work on my system. Very disappointed. Found that oout lately that you get bumped into an australian Amazon.com or however this mess happens. Very dissatisfied.

I love Al Pacino. He’s a dynamite actor and I’ll never, ever be able to say anything bad about HIM, but I don’t know about this movie. I agree that it’s not really a comedy. I can’t really put my finger in what it was, but this movie seemed to be missing something for me. Something about it didn’t really click with me, and I think a small part of that is due to he fact that I’m not over 30. One of the seemingly important aspects of the movie (the Attica stuff) was completely lost on me. And while I love some of the absurdity of the movie, at the end, I was less than impressed. I think part of that is because despite Al Pacino’s dynamite (as usual) performance, he alone wasn’t enough to make up for every other aspect of the movie, which seemed a bit weak.

Whereas I do admire Al Pacino’s acting ability in A Dog Day Afternoon, the story just seems to drag on for too long for me to really like it. Too many odd ball incidents with the gun play and the burning of the bait money. Its almost a comedy of errors that made this incident just snowball to the point where a Brooklyn street corner became a media circus.

Whereas I admire the loyalty of some of the bank employees, I just feel this unfortunate incident did not need to be dramatized into a movie. Also, the pacing of the movie is too sluggish for my tastes. However, I can see the depth of the characters in several of the scenes, therefore I’ll instruct you to the make the choice between depth and the overall good taste of the film.

I am a hugh Pacino fan, so I had to buy for my collection. Good movie, it was funny, the best part was it is based on a true story. I may not be Pacio’s best, but not a bad addition.

After the Godfather, Godfather part II Pacino made Dog Day Afternoon. AL Pacino plays Sonny, a multi married man to both male and females who tires to rob a bank. Theres also John Cazlae, who is pacino’s sidekick in the attempted robbery (who may remeber him as Fredo in Godfater’s 1+2). They try to rob a bank at closing time but the cops are right across the street. The cops can’t get to him because there are 11 hostages. A 5 minute event turns into a all day fun fest. There are tons of twists and turns along the way. This is a awsome movie and a must have but there are virtually no extras in this DVD edition, this classic deserves better than that.
Here’s a little Godfather, Dog Day AfterNoon dejavue:
Godfather II= 1975, Dog Day= 1975
Godfather= Al Pacino, Dog Day= Al Pacino
Godfather= John Cazale, Dog Day= John Cazale
Godfather= Character named Sonny, Dog Day= Character named Sonny
Godfather= thevies , Dog Day= thevies
Godfather= John Cazale dies, Dog Day= John Calaze dies
Godfather= Police after them, Dog Day= Police after them
These movies aren’t the same by a long shot but it sure seems that way.
