Not bad, but not great either

Could have been great, it's got interesting story and the actors did a great job. But it's executed badly, it's not suspensful one bit, and you don't end up caring about the characters really. Worth the watch on a rainy day.

Good, but not great

This quasi-historical thriller is inspired by life (or more precisely - death) and work of Edgar Allan Poe. Edgar Allan Poe is found delirious on the Baltimore streets on October the 3rd 1849. Few days later he passed away and to this day we know nothing about his last days or cause of death. In interesting way this movie uses fiction to fill this hole in Po's biography, making it more convincing by using some authentic details. Plot is based on several Po's poems and stories and having them read before watching is recommendable for better understanding, but it is not necessary. Although this is American movie with plot taking place in Baltimore, in leading roles are mostly English actors, except for John Cusack. It was filmed in Budapest, Novi Sad and Belgrade, so there's quite a lot Serbs and Hungarians, both as actors, stunts and technical support. Story is good, as well as acting, directing, camera, sound. But, in my opinion, film has serious lack of tension and suspense, which is pretty big flaw for a thriller. It is far from boring, but I wasn't at the edge of my seat at any point. Because of that I can not rate it higher than

7,5/10

Sophisticated and very well made movie

This movie was enjoyable for me. If you're a fan of Edgar Allen Poe's work. I'm sure you'll love this movie. In this movie, you can find his works "Tell-tale Heart", "the Cask of Amontillado", "the Pit and the Pendulum" and others. The scene that left the strongest impression is of a man who was killed by pendulum with a giant sword. His body was literally cut in two pieces. This was far-fetched, though. The most intriguing part is that the real criminals was not Edgar Allen Poe, yet a killer who always committed murders based on Poe's works. Therefore Poe was a always suspect. In the last scene, you will be surprised when you figure out who the criminal is. I rated it an 8 because I liked it very much but It is a little bit grotesque. I don't like these types of scenes so much. If you're a lover of grotesque, scary, or mystery movies, I bet you'll like it. I recommend you read some of his works before watching this movie because you will enjoy it more. The portrayal of Poe suits people's expectation, in my opinion.
