Format: DVD
If you're anything like me, the almost semi-annual relapse and recovery of Robert Downey Jr. has been an interesting periodic feature of the morning news. After a while one begins to question why does Hollywood put up with him when there is no shortage of talented actors desperately trying to make it in Hollywood? Why would producers and studios, who are so financially dependent on their productions going off without a hitch, take yet another chance on Robert Downey, Jr? Then I saw Chaplin, and I understood.
The intensity and power of the Robert Downey's performance in this film is the stuff of Oscars and true movie legend! It's both a beautiful performance and a beautiful film!
Somehow Sir Richard Attenborough got out of Downey the kind of performance that can sustain a career, and a legend. But Sir Richard's mastery didn't stop there. He got spectacular performance out of everyone, including a young, pre-X-Files David Duchovny. (I know I misspelled that. But you know who I mean.)
In summation, Robert Downey's performance is every bit the equal of James Dean's in Giant, East of Eden or Rebel without a Cause, and maybe that's what we should keep in mind. For unlike Dean, another self-destructive personality, Robert Downey has not driven off the cliff yet, and hopefully he never will.

Great quality; speedy delivery. Probably one of the best early works of Robert Downey Jr. pre all his troubles. Makes you thankful he got it together as he is a genuine talent in today's entertainment industry.

Format: DVD
I can't understand why directors are drawn to biopics. They never seem to rise above the level of a better-than-average TV miniseries. And they generally gravitate to one extreme or the other: either the subject was a monster or a saint. Attenborough's Chaplin is in the latter category. At times it even seems like an apologia for the often maligned Chaplin, who some biographers accuse of misogynism, communism, and various sexual perversities. In contrast, Attenborough depicts Chaplin as an artist-hero who was highly principled but slightly flawed in his personal life. I admire Chaplin as an artist and even (with reservations) as a person. I could have tolerated a more balanced depiction of this brilliant man. It would have made for a much better movie.
Robert Downey is a remarkable Chaplin, although he misses out on the sweetness that Chaplin could convey on screen. His imitation of Chaplin's other mannerisms is excellent. As an old man, the heavily made-up Downey eerily resembles a miniature Jabba the Hut. The primary purpose of the many supporting characters is to serve as foils to the greater glory of Chaplin, proving somewhat repetitiously that Chaplin was a man of deep principles and unbounded genius. Thus, these characters have little depth and aren't very interesting. The exception is Kevin Klein as Douglas Fairbanks. He contributes a nuanced and moving portrayal of the young vital Doug and, later, the old decaying Doug.
A final cavil: over the closing credits, we are informed how things turn out for the many supporting characters in this drama. The writers could apparently not resist the temptation to give Chaplin's enemies their just desserts. Thus, we are told that the "bad" characters (e.g., Joan and Mildred) end up in mental hospitals or dying through dissolution.

This is a cinematic masterpiece. Wonderfully acted and beautifully filmed. Robert Downey Jr. could not have done a more masterful job portraying the great Charlie Chaplin. The film flowed well, leaving out very little of the major events in his life. The only thing that kept me from giving it a 5 was that it only made subtitle available in Spanish! For the life of me I could not understand why the subtitles were not made available in English! This was a major problem if one had difficulty understanding the clipped dialogue of the English accents used in the film. I would love to have the same DVD availablle with English subtitles.

Charlie Chaplin's life story is a must-see for Chaplin's many fans. However, critics claimed the movie tries to cover too much of Chaplin's complex life in too short a time. I agree. There should have been more time spent on Chaplin's genius as an actor and a movie-maker rather than his failed marriages to rather young females.

This is a lush production with a great cast of fine actors. Once in a while some of the actors cross the line into melodrama, but the remainder show up and their work is extremely talented. But the star of this film is Robert Downey, Jr. who steals every scene he is in either with subtlety or a dead-on impression of the late, great Charlie Chaplin. Director Richard Attenborough carries the huge production all the way with moments of inspiration that the actors feed on like mana. This is an interesting biography of the true comic genius, Charlie Chaplin.

Charles Chaplin was one of the pioneers in film who brought us classics such as The Kid (1921), Gold Rush (1925), Modern Times (1936), and Great Dictator (1940). His many successes are still to this day considered masterpieces which he created, acted, directed, and edited. He had a brilliant eye for what the human mind was observing and he could make comedy out of almost anything. However, despite Chaplin's great sense of humor the recurrent theme in his life seems to be surrounded by sadness and loss where his escape was to help others feel a sense of joy. Chaplin is a brilliant cinematic story that has a fantastic cast and where the lead as Chaplin is managed brilliantly by Robert Downey Jr.. In addition, the story weaves in moments out of Chaplin's life where he got his ideas in an ingenious manner which displays the superb directing in the story. When the audience sees everything put together they will experience a dazzling cinematic experience.
