Some critics have labeled Eastwood’s direction in Jersey Boys lazy or wooden, but I’d wager it’s downright radical. The film operates on a deceptive formal level that addresses a series of parallels between blind ambition, success, and ego in comparison to the darker experiences of those outside the main characters’ orbit.

…Eastwood has managed to stamp his own personality all over material that one would assume he is completely wrong for. The film meanders through the hits, detouring via its four fourth-wall breaking voiceovers that begin often in the middle of a scene without breaking the shot, suddenly shifting the weight of themise-en-scène in a way that feels genuinely fresh.

Each moment of his new film Jersey Boys [is] at once being driven into the future, fame, success, regrets, while simultaneously becoming nearly a dream, a dream running simultaneously to the events it imagines. Everything is made memory the instant it happens. It isn’t exactly fantasy, not quite melancholy, not jubilation. It’s a chorus of voices and emotions.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    You're telling me this is based off a musical? It's difficult to imagine anything this stately and somber translating to the stage. Eastwood sidesteps most of the biopic cliches by focusing on the unglamorous moments of a music career: playing deadend gigs because your best friend is on the hook to a loan shark, sharing a hotel room with your slob bandmate, writing dozens of derivative tunes before you find a hit.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Jersey Boys

    Every frame of this film is classy. I really don't care to know whether the description of the Italo-American New Jersey neighborhood of the 50's is accurate or not. Jersey Boys is not a documentary. If you can't recognize class when it's there, you don't deserve Jersey Boys. Masterpiece. And it's final.

  • Ghostman's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    A standard musical biopic that is somewhat more compelling because of Eastwood's direction. Perhaps the Jersey Boys, at times, are doubles for Eastwood himself relating his own problems to the audience; suffering from the pangs of fame, personal failure, & a tunnel vision targeted towards one's profession. That being said, Eastwood also feels out of his element in the musical genre; an awkward fit.

  • João Eça's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    Family in its multiple forms. A classical theme explored with both classical and modern forms by a filmmaker whose depth and truth seem to have vanished with his tour de force (the magnificent "Gran Torino"). It is not Eastwood's worst film, on the contrary, it's fresher than his horrible last movies (particularly "J. Edgar"), but it's ruined by sentimentality, clichés and the worst third act ever.

  • josé neves's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    From the filmmaker that has been regarded as the last of the classics (an exasperating cliché), another demonstration of how banal and demonstrative his narrative system is, this one particularly painful because of its complete mimesis of the Italo- Americam commonplace. Worse than any recent Scorsese, which is frankly desperate.

  • Lucas Granero's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    El mas joven de los clásicos entrega una nueva página de su reciente (re)exploración a las formas míticas de construcción heroica de su país. La vasta tradición ítalo-americana bajo la que se ha fomentado el cine estadounidense de los 70's, encuentra en Jersey Boys un sentido homenaje, en el que los lazos entre una familia se ven tensados únicamente para demostrar que siempre existe un hombre capaz de sacrificarse.

  • Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    “Jersey Boys” would continue being lame, boring and full of pose, even if directed by another filmmaker.

  • The Mayor Of Hell's rating of the film Jersey Boys

    A very fun movie. Would have loved a scorsese take on this obviously but if not him then someone that wouldn't make it feel like a scorsese-lite affair, and that's Clint who makes it his own and directs with genuine love and interest for the subject. The music is great obviously and it eschews the normal music bio routine that has been churned out ad nauseum since walk the line. I loved being in this world for a min
