I watched this blind. I missed all the hype of it's theatrical release so, maybe that helped me enjoy the film? But, I must say this is amazing. I am not going to fill this review with all of my experience or know how. For a major North American release this is a modern master piece! The only reason I can think of why not to like this would be high or different expectations. Blame media hype. You can't really expect something from a film you haven't seen...It is simply put: Not art but drama

25th Hour... A lot of people have already posted reviews of this movie. Some loved it, some hated it. I am in the first category- although it is dark, tense and slow-paced, 25th Hour riveted me from the first scene, where Monty Brogan rescues the abused dog.
I love Edward Norton. Not only is he an incredibly talented actor, but I find his looks very appealing. He's not a pretty boy or a hunk, yet he has major appeal, and yes, he has definitely got a nice build. But most importantly, he has a way of using facial expressions that is irresistable. Fight Club was a great movie, and he is a great actor, but this has to be his finest work to date. I bought 25th Hour because he stars in it, and I loved it because he made the movie. It was well directed in my opinion, and the supporting cast were wonderful, but if it had starred anyone else, 25th Hour would likely have been something not worth watching. Even a well directed film with a great supporting cast can fail if the lead is miscast. In this case, casting was spot-on.
Edward Norton IS Monty Brogan for 25th Hour.
If for just a few scenes, this movie would be worth watching- Monty's f*ck-you rant to the mirror in the bathroom of his father's bar, the scene where his apartment is searched by the DEA, the interrogation scene, the scene between Naturelle (Rosario Dawson) and Francis (Barry Pepper), the 'make me ugly scene'- these scenes could have made a mediocre movie great. But the movie was already great- these scenes made it unforgettable. I watch it once, and as the end credits roll I immediately want to watch it again. That is what denotes a great movie- I'll never tire of 25th Hour.

Format: DVD
This movie, Spike Lee's latest offering, is essentially his offering to New York as a parting gift. If you allow yourself to be immersed in the movie then you'll find yourself overtaken by it. The colours, the characters, the story, the pace, the music - all are brilliantly balanced by the director to make this one of the best movies to come out of 2002.
The characters that Lee (and the writer of the screenplay, whose name I've forgotten) presents are complex and human. Just like in real life, nobody here is clear-cut, everyone has greater depths than are first seen and it's hard to determine who you sympathize with and who to blame. The performances are all, without exception, excellent.
The story, simply put, is a character-based drama. It's about Monty (Ed Norton) and his way of dealing with the fact that he's about to go to prison for 7 years and there's a whole bunch of people and things that he's never going to see again. The movie is about how this affects him, his friends, his business partners (he deals drugs) and his girlfriend.
The DVD's special features include some deleted scenes (most of which were appropriately deleted, in my opinion), a montage of Ground Zero (about 8 minutes long), a short biography of Spike Lee which is informative and to the point (22 minutes long) and commentary tracks by Spike Lee and the writer of the book and the screenplay (I haven't listened to these yet so I can't tell you what I think of them).
It's a really worthwhile movie and one that, if you enjoy it, you'll want to watch again in a month or two as there are definitely scenes that stand out more once you're not obliged to follow the plot too closely.
Highly recommended; but don't plan on being in a particularly jovial mood afterwards.

Format: DVD
25th Hour has some enjoyable elements, and works in a special way. A man is sentenced to jail, and is allowed time on the outside to say goodbye. Naturally he reflects on what might have been, and also questions his friendships. I found the film had alot of hidden meanings, but it did lose some credibility with the freedom aspect. I dont know what it is like in America, but if you were sentenced to jail for being a drug dealer in Australia, you would be kept in custody beforehand for weeks.
I have to admit it was difficult to feel compassion for Norton since his character is that of a drug dealer. Perhaps if he was being sentenced for something different, it might have helped gain my compassion.
Worth seeing, even if it is rather depressing at times.

Very well acted and well shot. Nothing happens. You keep waiting for something interesting, but it never comes along. Besides which, it has this confusing conceit of a man who's been sentenced to jail, but then he gets some time on the outside to say goodbye to people and possibly escape if he wants. It may be that this does happen in the criminal justice system, but it flies so counter to what i'm used to (you get convicted, you go straight to jail) that it just made it hard to take in. Save your money. there are so many better movies with the same people (Lee, Norton, Hoffman, Paquin...)
