post your review of the last movie you watched.
"Let Me In" RT style rating 9.8/10
This is the American version of the widely acclaimed Swedish "Let the Right One In". I haven't seen the Swedish version yet. I would have rated "LMI" a perfect 10, but it has that one scene lol. Pretty much everyone who watched it, knows the one I'm talking about.
"LMI" has drawn alot of comparisons to the "Twilight" movies. There is major similarities and also major differences between the two.
Both are human w/ vampire love stories
Both include a love triangle
the "Protector" theme
a huge difference is that "LMI" is nearly entirely driven by the terrific performance of Chloe Grace Moretz. CGM is as good as anyone outside of Noomi Rapace. Deserving of an oscar nom, but prolly won't happen cuz it underperformed at the box office.
Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) is very good and also the always great Richard Jenkins, in a smallish, unusual, difficult role.
There is a slew of brutal violence, which benefits the movie. Within context, i found it very thought-provoking.
I disagree with the negative criticism re the visual effects. Particularly impressive was Abby's "turned" face.
"LMI" is an incredible mix of romance, violence, and world-class performances.
