5.0 out of 5 stars Always loved this movie March 3 2013
By Laurie
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I always loved not only the cast in this movie, but the excellent plot and screen writing. It is based on a true story, which is why I find it so amazing, not to mention heart wrenching in some areas. One of the few movies I've always wanted for myself, but could never find, until now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful March 21 2004
By Greg
Format:DVD
This is a very dramatic and gripping film. The cast is great for the movie, though Brad Pitt is underused, and Dustin Hoffman may seem miscast. But overall a very good and extremely underrated movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH, BUT A GRIPPING FILM March 19 2004
Format:DVD
Making a movie of such a controversial account that is told in the stunning book (with the same name) must have been a daunting task, especially when you fill it with A-list movie stars, some of which are not known for their sentimental sides.
However, Levinson has created a masterpiece, and a film that everyone should watch. Sleepers might've not been the most eloquent courtroom drama, and the tactics used might be unrefined, but I absolutely loved it. It showed the consequences of prison guards' sadism, which affected the boys for the rest of their lives.
All the actors give mindblowing performances, with no conceivable weak link. This includes the four child actors, who dominate half of the movie, but obviously don't receive as much press as their older counterparts. These four kids were outstanding in roles that must have been truly harrowing to play, especially the young boy who played John. Even Brad Pitt shows that under the right direction he can be more than a candy face.
Add to this a great score from John Williams, and you will come back to this film time and time again. The DVD has great features too so in all a very worthy purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleepers Jan. 19 2004
Format:DVD
Sleepers is a phenominal movie that shows a group of boys growing up and the loyalty they have for each other. All they have is each other and their neighborhood. They protect each other and witness the protection of their neighborhood. The book is one of the best written and the movie follows suit with the spectacular word for word narration of Jason Patric which seems pull the movie into the classic realm. Pay particular attention to the acting job done by Robert Deniro. This is quite possibly his best acting job to date. A good movie with great acting in a well presented package. A+

5.0 out of 5 stars Facing the Past Nov. 7 2003
Format:VHS Tape
You may find "Sleepers" to be just be a well-acted, provocative legal/psychological drama. However, beware. This purportedly true story just might sneak past your guard.

Robert De Niro is, well, Robert De Niro - always worth watching. But this is not a Robert De Niro film.
With "Sleepers" you won't just HEAR about past rapes of boys by slimy prison guards. "Sleepers" makes you experience (no male nudity shown, thank you) the Hell's Kitchen of childhood mental and sexual devastation. (I think that Joseph Perrino, the young "Shakes," deserves an Oscar.)
When the movie does a 15 year jump ahead, you are still feeling what they thought they had been able to leave in their past. Major message of the movie - you don't get past your past by trying to avoid it!!!! (That's an exclamation point for each "boy.") The next scene, when John (Ron Eldard) bumps into scumbag rapist former-guard (Kevin Bacon) in a dive diner, shocked me as much as it shocked John. John looking at himself in the bathroom mirror may be the most powerful single event in the movie.
A close second is when narrator "Shakes" gathers up the courage to go visit his father in desperate hopes of telling his own dad what was done to him while in the juvenile prison. His father is just not on the same page, and Shakes closes back up without telling him. Wow. If that scene doesn't move you.......
As an attorney, I particularly liked Dustin Hoffman's defensed attorney come-back (required by awesome character, King Benny). Hoffman's unassuming cross-examination of the only unmurdered rapist guard is one of my favorite courtroom scenes of any movie.
The movie's ending is either a flaw or a masterful choice by director Barry Levinson.

4.0 out of 5 stars chilling story with a great cast Oct. 28 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The cast of this film is an all-star team and they all deliver with Robert DeNiro being the most believable as a tough Hell's kitchen priest that befriends the neighborhood boys. The scenes of abuse at a boys refomatory are absolutely chilling and Kevin Bacon as an abusive guard gives an amazing portrayal of evil.
Overall this is a very interesting film with good to great performances. I know that some have questioned the veracity of the story but as someone who grew up in the neighborhood depicted during the same era I found it all too believable.
