Not much happens

Evil, blu-ray.com
24 March 2013
  • Excerpt: There are a few interesting and funny scenes but by the end of the film I felt like nothing significant had happened. I've seen the film described as being cut short or like a TV pilot and I agree with those comments. It felt more like an introduction to a TV show than a movie.

Beware new edition of disc

25 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Picked this up for $10 at Best Buy. Got it home and found – no extra features as listed on the original edition, but merely a few scraps of cast interviews. The front cover of the new edition is the one with Depp standing in his skivvies, not the head and shoulders shot of the original edition.

  • Excerpt: Being a fan of Johnny Depp and the writings of Hunter S. Thompson I was highly anticipating The Rum Diary. I was not deterred by the mixed reviews and was still quite syked to blind buy the Blu-ray on release-day. The movie is great!

Don't be fooled by the trailer.

  • Conclusion: 2 stars as the earlier reviewer gave it sums this up really well. The trailer had looked good. Johnny Depp does chose some nothing roles. I haven't seen him in much better than Donny Brasco. This Rum Diary is an interesting period. Early 60's. Aaron Ekhart is wasted in his role.
