Babel - My Review
March 18, 2007 8:36pm CST
My husband and I just watched this movie today during naptime... I thought it was a good movie. My husband didn't like it. He called it one of my movies, because I always seem to pick the weirdest movies to watch! He likes the action packed movies...not the turn the volume up so you can hear it and read subtitles movies! I'm not usually a subtitle movie watcher either, but this movie was worth it. Yes, it's slow and yes you have to be paying attention to get it...because it scatters the situations all over the place and jumps back and forth, sort of like a soap opera. But I believe it be easy to pick up and keep up with. For me, it definitely made me think about my views on other countries and also made me think about the country I live in. I don't want to say anymore for those that haven't seen it. So on a 5 star scale, I give it 3 1/2.

It was slow and dull...many of the scenes did nothing to further the actual story/message/ect...many times I found I was just staring at some actors or in one case a little boy playing with himself next to a rock...why? it did nothing to add to the film or set the tone....I also do not agree with the way the bullet struck the girl...rom where the boys were standing and the hole the way it went through the window...looked like one of those magic bullet scenarios and an impossible angle...would have made more sense if the window hole were not a straight shot or if the bullet came through the roof even
