  1. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The General

  2. Laura G.'s rating of the film The General

    Was still waiting for something more but the end made up for it. Those kisses and the salutes as he was saluting a brand new life.

  3. ginobartolomi's rating of the film The General

    genuinely funny and suspenseful nearly 100 years later. bold and innovative for its time and in fact more daring than most films that have been made in recent decades...I mean, that burning train engulfed in flames, hurtling across the bridge, collapsing into the valley below?? c'mon

  4. jewelsofglory's rating of the film The General

    It saddens me that I had to give this such a low rating. I had high expectations as I believed Keaton could replicate something like Chaplin, but it lacked the humility and pathos.

  5. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The General

    A nightmare for insurers. Masterpiece.

  6. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film The General

  7. LauraPalmer's rating of the film The General

    Rewatched and re-loved. Buster Keaton is love.

  8. Django's rating of the film The General

    If you only see one Keaton movie this is probably the one to see. Sublime.

  9. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film The General

    It's unfortunate to know that Keaton's greatest film was also his biggest downfall as it cost studios too much money, and he lost much of his artistic freedom because of it. But yeah, Keaton at his best right here. And trains!

  10. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The General

    As Johnie Gray continues to pass by History, oblivious to the events around him and his destiny - one can only go forward or backwards on a railroad - Buster Keaton would undeniably become part of another History, that of cinema itself.

  14. YOthisisYO's rating of the film The General

    First ever video was shot in 1888 , This movie was out in 1926 , Buster Keaton is a Genius . Cant even imagine how limited technology was back then . Those Stunts and rush can be felt through out the movie , This movie is Ageless . Thanks to digital restoration i was able to watch it . This and Metropolis should be respected just for being made.

    If you lose this war don't blame me.

  16. FISCHER's rating of the film The General

    Un classique du cinéma burlesque, muet, brillant et qui mérite le voyage... www.cinefiches.com

  17. MistaRichard's rating of the film The General

  18. Louisa Savignon's rating of the film The General

  19. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film The General

    The stunts and visual effects in this film are insanely well made. There is not a single shot that looks fake, it feels real and helps the viewer to get along with the story. The train chase sequences reminds me of "Mad Max : Fury Road". Another extremely well made action film made almost 90 years after Keaton's film. The influence of this wild ride makes it a highly enjoyable essential piece of cinema. 3.5 stars.

  20. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film The General

    Pensare che qualcuno sia riuscito a realizzare un film del genere la bellezza di 90 anni fa, con i pochi e regrediti mezzi disponibili all'epoca, ci dà una definizione ben chiara di cosa voleva dire essere un "genio cinematografico". Senza dialoghi e con poche, semplici, idee Keaton riesce, come sempre, ad essere comico ed innovativo.

  21. panagiotatos's rating of the film The General

    Buster Keaton's antics are not my favourite, but i bow to his inventiveness, technical maestry, and his director's feel.

  22. Lingam's rating of the film The General

    Finest screenplay for a railroad movie. Utterly realistic action sequences.

  23. ahen's rating of the film The General

  24. Bleins Salazar's rating of the film The General

    Da cuenta porqué Buster Keaton es un grande del cine. La veo 90 años después de su estreno y logró hacerme reír y disfrutar de la historia. Tema aparte es que con la cinematografía en ciernes haya obtenido un trabajo logrado. Podría elogiar el encuadre, la edición, la sencillez y contundencia... pero lo mejor: la escena del cañón y cuando quita el madero de las rieles jaja, un maestro.
