  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    Surprisingly nasty in its primitiveness. The earth is bare and the trees are stripped. Not a healthy film for a nation to produce, perhaps. Essential viewing after reading Frank Norris' turn-of-the-century epic 'The Octopus'. Watched with a terrific soundtrack by Andreas Brink, reminiscent of Tom Waits' 1992 album 'Bone Machine'.

  2. Samuel T.'s rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    16mm. Surprised by the violence! Film school 101. First time seeing it. Good times.

  3. captainfez's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    1904 fight choreography: savage as fuck.

  5. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    3-4. I specifically really liked the contrast created by the tinting, as well as the ending. But I can see, overall, why it would have been exciting to audiences back in the day.

  7. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    Edison was a power hungry tyrannical POS by all accounts, but his company made some good pioneering shorts. Holds up relatively well, even better than some silents from the 20s. Here is a medium in its infancy, and people are just starting to understand what they can do with it. Think 90s internet. 4.5 stars. Historical, but also still entertaining in its own right. A must see

    All it took was eleven minutes to translate the Western genre onto film.

  13. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    The first great early American film of its era. Also introduced us having a storyline, a film would not be without a storyline for sure.

  15. suede's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    It's 1903, and we're suddenly looking at a whole new ballgame. I'm still impressed with the fact that this was produced within the historical period of the Wild West.

    ¬°Es el nacimiento del cine!

  17. J. O.'s rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    Certainly hard to believe this is well over a century old. Historically speaking, there is some extremely creative editing that paces out the riveting action through expensive sets. The bizarre ending breaks the fourth wall and is the icing on the cake, proving this film was ahead of its time in almost every single way.

  18. Teona Gal's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    best ending i loved the ending

  19. Log Lady's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    Groundbreaking work with tight action sequences and a great ending. Although it's difficult to wrap your head around how old this is and what the reaction of the audience was at the time, there's no doubt that the story itself (although simple) is effective when examined scene by scene. In fact, this has a lot in common with blockbuster action flicks. A historically valuable film that deserves its place in the canon.

  21. David M.K.'s rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    See? Modern movies didn't invent gratuitous violent.

  22. tiagovitoria's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    The perception of Edwin S. Porter: when a passenger get out of the train and starts to run towards the camera. The purpose is simple. Porter realize that if the passenger did that run toward the camera it'll symbolize a request for the spectator's help.

  24. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Great Train Robbery

    Porter's most well-known film is a great example of how to tell an effective story with an iconic gunshot scene that sticks with you.
