There is an underlying sweetness to Slumdog Millionaire which is belied by its overt brutality. This movie is a nasty, gritty and very realistic depiction of the slums, but in the end it proves to be …

This story is so well crafted that the viewer suspends their reason and disbelief, and by the end of the movie we all overlook the simple but persistant message of the film... women are stupid.  …

It looks a little too cliche and uplifting at first glance, but it pulls through so earnestly it still ends up likable.

If you've seen this film please don't think you've seen "Bollywood"--this was directed by an Irishman, what does he know about Bollywood?

   I enjoyed this film but I did not feel it was as great as all the hype it has received.  The director uses flashbacks in a confusing manner starting with an adult Jamal being tortured …

I watched the Oscars without having seen Slumdog Millionaires. I thought Hollywood was making too much out of the movie. However, after watching it for myself, I can honestly say this is the first fresh …

Someone in the movie calls Jamal's story "bizarrely plausible" and I would have to agree. The story is basically structured in a way that if one thing had happened differently in Jamal's life he wouldn't …

I loved Slumdog Millionaire, but anyone expecting a serious meditation about the social problems effecting India will be disappointed here - it's entertainment, not a documentary.     This …
