Definitely disagree there, I consider it to be a big improvement over the first film, which for me suffered from pacing issues, one too many plot holes and a noticeable lack of excitement until the finale.


Definitely disagree there, I don't consider it to... wait, I actually agree with you all on this one (maybe minus the "big" in improvement). Damn. Hopkins must have been really forgettable in this though because I don't even remember him in it.


It wasn't a big role but I thought Hopkins' brought a suave coolness to the part. He brought more to it than, say Laurence Fishburne did in a similar role in Mission: Impossible III IMO.

Hard to fathom Brando and De Niro will play off against each other in the final of this forum. Who would've guessed that could happen?

Yeah but DDL could still be viewed as a movie star too though. ;)

There you have it gentlemen. By nearly a unanimous vote, your Reelviews greatest English-Speaking Male Actor of All Time is Daniel Day-Lewis.

Didn't vote in the final round so maybe a single vote would have made a difference. The words "nearly a unanimous vote" aren't encouraging but there may have been only three people voting in the finals. A stalemate would have been preferable to me. Not that I don't like Daniel Day-Lewis.

No matter as I didn't believe DDL would stand against some of the heavies who turned in good to great performances over decades in many varied films. I wonder if the same bracket over at that bracketeers site would have yielded the same results.

Real talk: I didn't vote in the last two rounds because I was certain it was going to be De Niro in a blowout. I figured by abstaining, there would be a snowball's chance of making it an interesting contest.

So really, you all have me to thank for this.

De Niro lost by a single vote in the semis. The high seed wins in the result of a tie. So we really do have you to thank.

I am Jeff Goldblum and I just poured a drop of water onto your hand.

And now I'm making that really weird laughing noise.
