Summary: Like many others, I can't understand how this film #1: gets bad reviews and #2: wasn't nominated under either the Golden Globes or the Academy Awards. The movie was unbelievably gripping. It unfolded with just enough twists to leave you almost white-knuckling your seat.
Summary: No matter what the bad reviews say about the story, acting, or premise, this movie is worth seeing simply as a work of art. This film should be included in every list of movies given to cinematographers to learn from.
A movie depicted in slow motion in an era when people want everything fast and easy.

Summary: I can't agree with the number of bad reviews this movie is getting. The movie is well well acted. Though it deals with issues within the drug scene and social strife of coming of age movies, this movie is not a Hollywood Happy Meal. Its probably not meant to be seen accompanied.
Summary: I read the reviews on-site and many off-site before watching this and saw they were very polarized, so I even went through some European reviews, which treated it quite a bit nicer but which were also pretty polarized.

Summary: TWELVE is a film that is at first terrifying in its message about the irresponsible, uncontrollable drive for physical gratification among the wealthy youth of New York, and then a film that makes us profoundly sad that this is what we in our permissive, no established behavioral boundaries society...
Summary: I finally got to see this movie and I have to say, I really did like it. I know that this movie has been getting terrible reviews and slammed by just about everybody, but I would like to back this movie up a bit.
Can't believe this is what Joel Schumacher has become

Summary: After making his abominations of Batman with 'Batman Forever' and 'Batman & Robin,' Joel Schumacher lost a lot of respect from basically all of the film-going community. However, to me, he has had enough solid flicks like 'The Lost Boys,' 'Phantom of the Opera,' 'St.
Summary: Twelve, Less Than Zero lite for teenagers, is enjoyable schlock about beautiful, spoiled, rich Manhattan kids at party time. Some have said the Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford is "painfully miscast" as the lead, White Mike, a bereaved preppy dropout drug dealer.
