Amazing film, haven't enjoyed a movie this much for years.
Really good movie about reconcillation and making amends. Al Pacino was excellent as the aging rocker as was the supporting cast. A must see for anyone who likes John Lennon's music with most of his big hits from the 70's providing the sound track. No idea this was such a good show to take in .
This is a very good film 4 1/2 from me.
Movie was way better than expected-well worth seeing-good storyline
I read the reviews so I went to see this movie. It was bad on many levels overall the movie was not worth seeing.The singing was brutal. The only good part were the John Lennon songs on the sound track.
Just saw this movie with my dad. He usually goes for action films but agreed with me on this being a really good choice. How could you not like Annette Bening in this role?
The movie was entertaining. Pacino overacted, as usual. Annette Benning was pleasant and Bobby Cannavale was great. But, the character Danny Collins, is portrayed as a Neil Diamond style singer but the songwriter who inspired the story was actually a British folksinger who bears absolutely no resemblance to the character portrayed. Steve Tilston was that folksinger. The reviewers below that refer to this film as a gangster or Irish rebellion movie are either stoned, drunk, stupid, young (redundant?) or simply did not see the movie. Heaven help us from these idiots! It is time to screen film reviewers for age and intelligence!
A heartfelt tale of redemption. Tender and sweet in all of the right places. One of the better movies I have seen this year - excellent cast.
Great movie....enjoyable from start to finish.
This movie delivers - truly enjoyable film - Pacino was so great!
I am a movie goer, quite critical though, and I know what I'm talking about. Go see the film before it's being removed from showing in one and only cinema in Vancouver.
Great movie, well directed and scripted and more importantly, excellently acted.
I saw this movie on April 10 and was pleasantly surprised. The story was humourous, touching, reflective and well acted. Pacino's depiction of Danny Collins was fantastic and believable. The banter and chemistry between he and Annette Bening was infectious and refreshing. I would strongly recommend this movie to individual who appreciate character development and a real storyline, opposed to the many shoot em up fantasy type films that are currently in theatres.
