3.0 out of 5 stars OK, I didn't like it one bit
As I write this, there is only one other review on Amazon.ca and they loved it. Well, I didn't. The acting is superb, no doubt about that, so I gave it three stars. I just didn't like the story. I found it very dark, and as a mini-series it just went on, and on, and on, with frankly unloveable characters for the most part. It was excruciatingly painful to watch until...

I found it very dark, and as a mini-series it just went on, and on, and on, with frankly unloveable characters for the most part. It was excruciatingly painful to watch until the end, and when there is a sudden burst of horrendous violence all I could think of was "of course this would happen in a show like this." Yes, I know it was an adaptation of the book, but I have not read the book and after watching this, will never put myself through the downer of the book as well. Just so you know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empire Falls, Feb. 12 2008

This review is from: Empire Falls (DVD)
If you love movies about small town people and their lives, you will love Empire Falls. It's a wonderful movie with so many good actors in it which include Paul Newman, his wife, Joanne Woodward, Ed Harris, and many more.
I purchased it because I want to watch it more than once.
