ROBIN WILLIAMS is absolutely BRILLIANT in this role. His performance is STELLAR. It is too bad he did not have more opportunity outside of comedy, because he is a VERY, VERY GOOD actor (versatile and intuitive). CUBA GOODING JR.(I think he is a great actor equally capable in drama/melodrama and comedy) is REALLY, REALLY GOOD in his role, as well (he has not appeared in movies nearly as often as he should have). ANNABELLA SCIORRA deftly holds her own with a performance that STUNNINGLY equals her costars performances. ENORMOUS PERFORMANCES by everyone in the movie. BREATHTAKING ACTING.
The movie is slow. It did not bother me (especially considering the exceptional acting, the EXQUISITE visuals, and the AMAZING SPECIAL EFFECTS (especially the depiction of HELL--off the chart GOOD). BUT others may find the pace annoying.
I read some of the other reviews and was saddened by some of the reviewers who let their religion get in the way of understanding THIS IS A MOVIE and THEREFORE A FANTASY. SO WHAT'S NEW THERE????
I do recommend this movie, but sparingly. It's not for everyone. I will share it selectively. The combination of the FANTASTIC special effects, BEAUTIFUL visuals, and, of course, the acting, the WONDERFUL performances, make this movie a real EXPERIENCE.
LIFE, AFTERLIFE, DEATH, REBIRTH, GUILT, DAMNATION, REDEMPTION, and LOVE----ALL IN YOUR OWN MIND.
