Editorial Reviews

Match Point is "a winning combination of sex, mystery, brilliant writing and first-rate acting that all adds up to one of the most erotic and exhilarating movies in years." (Maxim). Chris (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is being torn apart by his desire for two very different women. Marrying Chloe (Emily Mortimer) will bring him a life of wealth and success, but his true passion lies with his brother-in-law's fiancee, the stunningly sensuous but unpredictable Nola (Scarlett Johansson). Pulsing with tension, Match Point rides the dangerous line between ambition and obsession to an ending as surprising as it is chilling.

MOVIE: Do you ever sit and watch a movie and try and guess the ending? Do you ever try and guess what direction a film is going? Well, I dare you to try and guess this film's outcome, go ahead, I dare you. Match Point is Woody Allen's character study as to how luck plays a role in our lives. Match Point opens appropriately enough with a sideline view of a tennis ball going back and forth across the net in slow motion. The narrator is the voice of the main character, Chris, played by Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. He describes the game of tennis as luck, that once in a while the ball will hit the net. The frame then freezes as the ball hits the net, and he describes that luck determines which side of the net the ball will fall. Chris, who is an all-pro tennis player, decides to step down from playing and takes up teaching for awhile while he decides what he wants to do with his life. His latest student, Tom, shares a passion of opera with him and invites him to his family's balcony seats. There he meets Tom's sister, and he falls in love with her. However, he soon meets Nola, a beautiful woman who lures him in with her eyes. He soon finds out that Nola is Tom's soon to be wife. This is the film as it seems. Chris begins to have an affair with Nola, and after she breaks up with Tom they continue to romance without the knowledge of Tom's family. He gets married to Tom's sister and they are now expecting a child, his father in-law lands him a dream job at one of his corporations. Yet, it is still the lure of the temptress that calls to him. Woddy Allen sets up a dilemma for our main character that raises the question between love and lust, and luck and fate. While you may expect this film to be lustful drama, you have no idea where Allen takes you next. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars An Engrossing and Engaging Film January 19, 2006
MATCH POINT is considered by some to be a departure for Woody Allen, due largely to its setting and its few oddities that can sometimes be an annoying Allen trademark. Yet it is also a well acted and well developed film that would be reminiscent for some of films such as ANNIE HALL. In order to know for sure, a person has to see it to decide and it's certainly worth seeing.

The film tells the story of Chris Wilton, and Irish born tennis player who realizes there's only so far his game will take him, so he takes a job as a tennis pro hoping to make a connection with London's upper class. His charm and ability ensure this will happen. He meets a client Tom Hewett, the son of a powerful business leader. Wilton marries Tom's sister, endears himself to his in-laws, and has a passionate affair with Nola, Tom's fiancé then later ex-girlfriend. Much of the film focuses on the ways in which Wilton goes to great lengths to cover up his affair.

The actors fit their roles well. Chris Wilton is played masterfully by Irish born Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Rhys Meyers has the look of someone who would fit into British upper class circles, and he comes across less as an imposter and more as a climber. Rhys Meyers, who is familiar to many who saw the film BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, again an Irish lad trying to make it in England, albeit in very different circles, demonstrates he's a believable and versatile actor. Scarlet Johansson plays the American actress Nola, likewise gives a phenomenal performance. The Hewett Family: Brian Cox as father Alec, Penelope Wilton as mother Eleanor, Mathew Goode as Tom and Emily Mortimer as Chris' wife Chloe seem like British aristocrats, oblivious to all that is happening round them, yet believable too.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'd rather be lucky than good." January 19, 2006
After several decades of shooting intriguing comedies, dramas, and mutations of the two, Woody Allen has eventually reached the point where he again reinvents himself. His newest film, Match Point, might be one of his very best, as it definitely is his best within the last decade. Despite its similar application of interpersonal tension as his Interiors (1978) and September (1987), the film provides a distinctly different atmosphere compared to his other films. Allen allows the audience to venture into the psyche of Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) in a beguiling cerebral drama that dissects the philosophical importance of mere luck.

By appearance, it is rather obvious that Woody Allen never had a chance to reach stardom in athletics with the exception of being a jockey. Nonetheless, he has repeatedly displayed his intellect in regards to athletics and sports in a thoughtfully intelligent manner. Sure, on occasion, he has even made fun of the sports, but it has never been tactless. In Annie Hall (1977), his character Alvy Singer told Annie (Diane Keaton) in the theater line that those who cannot become teachers with the exception of physical education teachers. Almost two decades later Allen returns to point out the importance of athletics in the Western society, as the former tennis pro Wilton attempts to seek his fortune among the London aristocrats by using his skills in tennis and quaint discourse.

Match Point begins by planting a seed in the audience's mind by letting a tennis ball strike the top of the net and then freeze in mid air while Rhys-Meyers' voice points out the importance of luck needed for a ball to continue over the net.

This dark and ironic mystery is a really atypical Woody Allen product chock full of excellent Scarlett Johanson work. I liked it, but don't expect a feelgood movie like Scoop.

Don't expect a "fully loaded" re-release of this DVD...
All of the Woody Allen DVDs are barebones, as he doesn't like special features. I highly doubt that this film will recieve an SE, seeing as how none of his films have recieved the SE treatment.
