Okay, let's set the record straight. This movie was in concept and script a very awesome choice for the average viewer, but some scenes were elegantly pulled off, and some were just pulled off. The lead character "Josh" was a convincing complicated teenager (except if you read into it, you can tell that JRM is originally irish)and Matthew Modine is a beautifully acted older brother. Now the I already told you that the actors were great and so was the script, but the scenes were jumpy and sometimes hard to catch. Seeing the movie a second time is highly recommended, not only because the movie was wonderful, but to laugh at some pretty funny scenes (aka josh being pulled over by the chick cop).Overall? Highly recommended.

I am a recent fan of Mr. Rhys Meyers so I have been watching a lot of his movies lately. This was one of his early films and I think he was very convincing and did a good job as an American teenager, considering he is Irish. This film would not receive an Academy Award; however, I find most films that do are boring and not worthy. I found The Maker very entertaining, and that's what I look for in a film.......to be entertained. However, not the best script when it came to things like all the criminal activity and they never wore gloves, etc. (I worked in a police department so I notice things like that in films.) Anyway, I would recommend it if you want to invest twenty some dollars to purchase it. (I have no idea why it is so expensive to buy.)

Alrighty, here's the truth of this movie...its supposed to be an actiony/drama, but seriously, its FUNNY. I mean really! In normal circumstances, I'd say stay away from this film, but if you're a fan of any of the actors (I'm a JRM fan) then its worth a watch. Don't take it seriously though, because you may hurt yourself or your television, however. Just realize your watching it because you love the actors...

I found this film riveting from start to finish. In particular, I loved Jonathan Rhys Meyers' and Matthew Modine's performances.
