Superior acting, writing, and direction are on impressive display in the critically acclaimed Mystic River, Clint Eastwood’s 24th directorial outing and one of the finest films of 2003. Sharply adapted by L.A. Confidential Oscar-winner Brian Helgeland from the novel by Dennis Lehane, this chilling mystery revolves around three boyhood friends in working-class Boston–played as adults by Tim Robbins, Sean Penn, and Kevin Bacon–drawn together by a crime from the past and a mu… More >>

  1. mustic river is the worst eastwood movie ever well the acting is very good over all but the movie is very boring long and very disturbing it sucks .
    Rating: 1 / 5

  2. The movie was ok until it got close to end. The accused murderer was murdered by his long time friend, the father of the daughter that was murdered. They all found out that the accused person was not the killer. And they all seemed like nothing happened. All the characters seemed kind of retarded near the end and that really made a good movie into a bad one.

  3. The movie is well-acted, well-edited and well-directed. It is, however, extremely dreary and very disappointing at the end. I walked in very eager to see it, but walked out drained and depressed. The message of the film is very dark and pessimistic. There was no closure as victims die and aggressors triumph.

    When I walked out of the theater, many people behind me were chatting about how much they �hated� the movie. I didn�t hate it. I wanted to like it, but I didn�t. It truly deserves zero stars, but I gave it 2 for the acting!

    Do yourself a favor and don�t see this movie.

  4. Please read the book first….otherwise you risk losing a great read because once you sit through this film you’ll no longer wish to read it. I read the book, then saw the flick at the theater, maybe I was expecting too much considering how much I enjoyed the book but it was really, really bad. Please avoid.Girlfriend didn’t like, parents either.

  5. I personally started liking Tim Robbins from Shawshank Redemption & Sean Penn from Dead Man Walking and I believe these were the movies these guys should have recieved oscar for their outstanding roles.

    Keeping than in mind and seeing lot of recommendations I saw Mystic River which the review said was the best as far as Clint Eastwood was concerned

    Again he had adapted another movie, Bridges of Madison County, which in my personal opinion was much better adaptation of a novel.

    The story line eventhough is good about three friends meeting again by fate and all the script is not that strong. I actually fell asleep in between.

    Off the cast my personal belief is Kevin Bacon was really good. Sure Tim

    Robbins plays a character of sexually abused child with lot of conviction but even that was potrayed better in Shawshank Redemption where he is abused by a few inmates.

    And the end is kind of loose.

    Give it a miss
