Editorial reviews

"Solidly crafted, impeccably acted....Von Sydow is splendidly restrained and moving."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (01/19/2012)

4.5 stars out of 5 -- "It's an emotional powerhouse of a film, an unforgettable and rewarding motion picture experience."
Box Office - Pete Hammond (12/20/2011)

"If Horn is the film's diamond in the rough channeling Oskar's sorrowing and searching, yearning and regretting, Von Sydow is its buried treasure."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (12/23/2011)

"EXTREMELY LOUD & INCREDIBLY CLOSE tells the story of an 11-year-old boy named Oskar Schell, who is played by the gifted and very well cast Thomas Horn."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (01/18/2012)

"A surprisingly engaging adaptation....The movie's chief strength, its saving grace, is the passionate portrayal by Horn..."
Film Comment - Nicolas Rapold (01/01/2012)

"A piercing story: Here's a tale that compacts the grief of an entire world, country, city, and thousands of loved ones left behind into the pain of one vulnerable, fictional boy."
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (01/06/2012)

3 stars out of 5 -- "Director Stephen Daldry has crafted an adroitly involving, emotionally intense experience....Horn gives a fierce performance..."
Total Film - Kate Stables (04/01/2012)

Very good movie to watch, Be ready for a longer 2 hrs

 | Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Just watched this movie and found it to be a bit different than expected. I did enjoy watching it but it took awhile to get there. It is a deep movie about a child's view of 9/11. He is a very smart, witty child who was very close to his father, and lost him that day.

The pro's are that it is well acted, is a good story, very touching, and interesting.
Con's are that it does move at a slow rate, my other family members left the room and were bored. Sandra Bullock was NOT needed for this film. Should have been a non-famous mother because her role is very small.

Very good movie to watch, may be considered a chick flick, and would rent before buying.

I loved this movie! There really wasn't anything that I didn't like about it. I am so surprised it did not win any awards, but perhaps the country is still too sensitive to that day's happenings. The movie held my interest throughout and it made me cry. Thomas Horn gave an absolutely outstanding performance. Three thumbs UP to him and of course to Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, who with their talents make it close to impossible for either of them to make a bad movie.
