  1. Leif Erikson's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    You are born of the noblest blood in the world. You have it within you to fulfill ambitions one thousand times greater than those at which you presently dream, and you shall fulfill them, Bobby. You shall.

  2. Ramzi's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Such a bizarre and entertaining watch. An absolute mess but can't begrudge it.

  3. ofNatalie LA's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Whoa. This is not what I thought this film was about. I enjoyed the humour because it so contrasted with the complexities of the bonkers plot. It took me a while to get used to Olivier in this modern world, because to me he is Maxim De Winter, Nelson, Heathcliff, Hamlet. I need to see more of his later work, because he is more than that, he's funny.

  4. Jonathan Smith's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    An absolutely ludicrous watch from start to finish. Tonally it's all over the place with drama, comedy & the absurd mashed together in rather unsubtle fashion. The fact James Mason & Gregory Peck are Nazis along with Laurence Olivier as a Nazi hunter is truly bizarre. Watching the aging Olivier & Peck wrestle in a bloody heap with their dubious German accents is the peak of the film's odd, hammy allure.

  6. Superfrog's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Should be terrible. Actually aims low and delivers to this level satisfyingly. The genetics are ill informed if not outlandish for the before the birth part. The rest is pretty good, if not leaving behind a huge impression. Some of the scenes have inspired lighting. Sampled in presence of a German von something to ascertain (badly managed) accents :).

  7. Francis Pellow's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    camp but very thrilling. really enjoyed this but sad that the big plot point was revealed in the film synopsis on mubi.

  8. Zanna Walsh's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Funny to see Larry reign it in, and Greg go all guns blazing, as it were. I enjoyed this film when I first saw it, and it hasn't lost it's macabre charm when seeing it again now. Really creepy premise, and probably something that would've been thought about by the Nazi's. Which makes it all the more fascinating. A good watch.

  10. miles's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    the peck and olivier wrestle is worth seeing.

  11. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    A dobermann is a man's best friend.

  12. Axel's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Une comédie à ne pas prendre au pied de la lettre, qui mène scénario loufoque et jeu d'acteurs volontairement exagéré, accent allemand à couper à la scie sauteuse compris.

  13. romelWF's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Classic Thriller with exciting story, which in the end is pretty silly, but keeps you guessing what's his plan... Peck is wildly overacting, but Olivier turned in another oscar nominated and worthy performance. Jerry Goldsmith's vienna waltz score is amazing and ranks among the best scores of all time. Look for small bits by Uta Hagen, Bruno Ganz and even Sky Dumont!

  14. captainfez's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    So much talent. So much chewed scenery. Stupidly enjoyable.

  15. Max Seqgar's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Such bad acting it's impressive, but the story is pretty good. The book must be a better bet here.

  16. Terry_Moby's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    An oddity. Well made, interesting if somewhat ridiculous story, hammy acting by great actors... a strange, entertaining film. That "Vienna wet flat scene" is totally unnerving, though.

  17. HospitalityPineapple's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Great film of a great book and it still holds up today. However, I feel Mubi should change the description of this film, as it currently gives away the entire plot.

  18. Robert Peters-Gehrke's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    This is easily one of the worst movies I have ever seen so it's quite worth a look if only to shake your head in utter disbelief about the number of renowned actors and actresses who took part in this atrocity. Gregory Peck delivers a perfomance which is awful and tasteless in every possible way. Laurence Olivier is the better overactor but an overactor all the same. Direction, script, music are all utterly terrible.

  19. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    OLIVIER executioner in Marathon Man (does it hurt?) is here nazi hunter! Bestseller adapter SCHAFFNER made his film after an improbable book by Ira LEVIN. Grotesk & delirious. === Ancien bourreau nazi (Marathon Man), OLIVIER en devient chasseur! Après PAPILLON, SCHAFFNER adapte LEVIN. Grotesque & délirant. Watch rather good 78 movies like Gates of Heaven, Midnight Express, Blue Collar, Days of Heaven, Interiors.

  21. charles f stewart's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    Nazis, clones, and Gregory Peck is scary good.

  22. Sean's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    There is a lot of over acting going on in this movie and its mainly by Gregory Peck as Joseph Mengele, the movie itself is kind of a black comedy so I can see why but sometimes it was kinda bad. Laurence Olivier was great as Ezra Lieberman, a Nazi hunter looking for Mengele, he had all the best lines and was fun to watch. The first half was boring but the second half came along and really turned things up a notch.

  23. SALESK's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    German-accented histrionics; screen legends overacting wildly.

  24. Jaspar Lamar Crabb's rating of the film The Boys from Brazil

    As bizarre a comedy as there is with an outrageous Gregory Peck performance
