How fans Reacted to the Movie?
Mystic River was released in 2003 and the film still gets appreciated for its amazing storyline and marvelous character development. Audiences and critics have appreciated the film over time and the film has been recognized all around the world.
One person says, “The film is unpredictable throughout and slowly paced, taking its time to get to grips with the storyline instead of rushing through the plot. Never once does it feel boring. The attention to technical detail is spot on as you’d expect, and the mood is finely judged throughout. It takes actors and a director of rare talent to make a movie this compelling, but in the case of MYSTIC RIVER everything comes together in a film that never disappoints.”
While another person says, “Like it, or hate it, it is a compelling movie, with a lot of tense moments. I had heard about this movie but did not bring myself to watch it, till last night, when I ran out of choices on Netflix. I don’t have much to say about Clint Eastwood as an actor, but as a director, he has this uncanny ability to hook you to the emotions in the movie. That is no small achievement, at all. I have watched Sean Penn in Milk and had a lot of appreciation for his acting, but in Milk, he was playing a real person and it is easier to do so, actually, because you either do it well or poorly, and either way you cannot satisfy all, in the end. Mystic River was a revelation as far as Penn is concerned. I cannot say this about the whole movie but at least 70% of it. He has this commitment to the role which is undeniable.”
