They should have eliminated both characters and made the movie about the little girl.
Gorgeous film. Really worth watching a second time. Kirsten Dunst steals the show, she's fucking amazing.
The art direction is magnificent: and then there's everything else. The dialogue is downright copious.I found myself constantly asking : what's at stake? The score is so reactionary it could be a booger.Once Kirstin Dunst enters the movie, it spirals into comedy. And then theres ALL that sexual tension... Was this made by a schizophrenic?
I haven’t read the novel yet but this film really makes we want to. It proves that vampires can be more than boring, awkward, fluffy and sparkling. Neil Jordan shows them as torn and sexy, yet lethal and hungry. Tom Cruise delivers a wonderful performance as Lestat, Brad Pitt’s Louis may be a little flat but nice to look at. Oh River, if only you had been able to be part of this…
This is my most favorite vampire movie of all-time (so far). What makes the movie interesting is how every character has a background and each character has different things that make them. Through this "interview" with the "vampire", we see the eyes through a vampire and his world. We are shown not only experience of the becoming of the vampire but also what the life became of it.
I really enjoy this movie. I really like all the performances, especially the young Kirsten Dunst; her character comes off as frighteningly sophisticated for a girl of her age --which makes perfect sense considering that she's an immortal vampire trapped in a child's body. One of the best vampire movies, in my opinion.
Darkly poetic and very well made. This isn't interested to scare you or bring blood and gore for the sake of it. It's more interested with the characters, and it's a fascinating watch. It is a strange bit of casting, but it somehow works. The effects look great, the production design looks beautiful and Elliot Goldenthal's score is fantastic. This stands as one of the best vampire horror films ever made.
not an incredible movie, but fun to watch. this was one of the first rated R movies i watched when i was younger, and at the time i really really liked it. like plenty of other movies for me, this is just a pleasure to watch and i don't even care about whether it's good or not. also, Brad Pitt is pretty good in it, and it's certainly the best thing Kirsten Dunst has ever done. she squandered her youth. and talent.
Great performance from a very young brad pitt. Movie is not as good as the book but is satisfactory and its not twilight and refreshing to see a believable vampire story. Tom Cruise is not what you would normally expect from him so this movie is very entertaining to watch. Fairly gory in parts and music is excellent. Yay for a good vampire movie
Terrific job, i really cant stand cruise as a person or personality but he amazes me with some decent films, this is one of them. terrific score and probably my favorite brad pitt performance other than 12 monkeys. One of the few non dracula vampire franchises that doesnt suck. Aparently Rice hated the idea of cruise as lestat until she saw the film.
