Maybe it was the advertising that killed this movie in the theatre before it even got a fair chance. I saw this before it was released at the Sundance film festival and knew that it would be a hard one to sell to people not because it wasn't good but because it didn't fit in to a usual Hollywood classification. Sure enough, I was right. They made it look like a horror movie and it is definitely not that. I'd call it a thriller with sci fi overtones. Sort of a Twilight Zone episode if you had to label it.

Great performances by a strong cast plus an interesting plot propel this over most movies that come out in the theatres these days. In some respects it's even better than The Butterfly Effect (which had a simular plot) especially because it has a strong lead where as B.E did not.

Given a chance with different marketing this could have been big. So check it out on DVD now!

Out of the proverbial left field, this movie ended up in my husband's vast dvd collection. I'd never heard of it. He popped it into the dvd player and I found myself immediately engrossed in the slow unfolding of a wonderfully played tale. This Adrien Brody guy is fascinating to watch; I don't know why I don't hear about him more often (see 'Dummy'). Now, I love myself a good time-travel story, and I think giving you that much information may already be too much, because you should discover it on your own. Also, I am capable of nit-picking my way through an implausible film unmercilessly (see 'Stigmata'), but this story was very easy to swallow, and it was quite engaging. I found myself thinking about it days afterward, which is the hallmark of a good film for me. If you need explosions and big action to keep you in the moment, then this probably isn't for you. But if you can be patient and allow a story to unravel itself through strong characterizations and simple dialogues, I think you will be satisfied.

I must agree with the previous reviewer...the trailer looks like a horror movie, but this is actually a very facinating movie. I'm a complete chicken (don't like horror movies) and I found this movie to be very engrossing. Probably not for everyone (my wife wouldn't like it, I think...), but if you like modern fiction with a twist, this is the movie for you.

Format: DVD
Here lately, the best way to find the boldest, darkest, most intellectually challenging films is to follow Jennifer Jason Leigh. Having watched The Machinist and The Jacket back to back, I feel a whole lot better about the future of motion pictures than I used to. There are actually scriptwriters and directors out there that are almost as dark and twisted as I am. Of course, The Jacket is primarily a showpiece for Adrien Brody, who gives a marvelous, haunting performance as Jack Starks, an ill-fated man who comes to know the past through the future - it's rather complicated (but it all makes sense in the end).

Starks' problems begin when a little Iraqi kid plugs him in the head as his unit is trying to control a crowd during a combat mission in the Gulf War. He is left for dead and may in fact have died (but I don't want to get into a tricky metaphysical discussion on this point). Then, it's a year later and we see Jack walk down a wintry road and help a woman and daughter get their car started - a seemingly innocuous event but one of great importance in this story. Then Jack bums a ride with a stranger, the car gets pulled over by a policeman, and the next thing Jack knows, he's on trial for killing a cop. No one believes his story, much of which he doesn't remember anyway, and there's no denying the fact that he suffered a serious head injury in the war, so he ends up being confined in a mental institution for the criminally insane. There are definitely some insane people at the institution - unfortunately, some of them are on the staff.

I'm still trying to figure out who told Kris Kristofferson he could act, but he shows up here as Dr. Mengel- uh, I mean Dr. Becker.

Format: DVD
The preview trailers for THE JACKET made the film look like another Hollywood horror movie (heavy on movie stars and bloated budgets... but very weak on any actual "horror") so I stayed away from this one when it was in theaters.

Then I saw this DVD... and I was absolutely blown away. I'm a big horror movie fan, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that THE JACKET is not really a horror film. Instead, it is a very intelligently-written, extremely well-acted, and beautifully photographed love story with an intriguing sci-fi edge.

Adrian Brody (who starred in one of the best films of the past ten years, THE PIANIST) stars with Keira Knightley (who starred in one of the worst movies of the past ten years, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN) and their on-screen chemistry forms the backbone of THE JACKET. Brody, again, proves he is one of the best actors working today. Knightly proves she is a much better actress than PIRATES would lead you to believe. Not to mention she is absolutely gorgeous. Kris Kristofferson is also a highlight of THE JACKET's cast, creating an incredibly real and dynamic character who walks a thin line between good guy and bad guy.

Director John Maybury has been jabbed at for being heavy-handed and over-indulgent with his "style" in THE JACKET... but c'mon, people... this is a MOVIE. Last time I checked, movies were a VISUAL medium. If you don't want creative, stylistic visuals, read a book or go see a play. In my opinion, Maybury's often criticized visual style gave much atmosphere to THE JACKET, creating a captivating environment for the viewer to be drawn into. I enjoy movies that are far more stylized than THE JACKET (like BEGOTTEN, NATURAL BORN KILLERS, AMELIE, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, Coppola's DRACULA, etc.
