  • mpho3's rating of the film Romero

    This is a movie I very much wanted to like more than I did. It's definitely worth seeing because it's a story that should be known and remembered, but it falls kind of flat. Overall the performances were good, yet there wasn't much passion. As a slice of history, it works very well. As a slice of filmmaking, there's something missing.
