Within the first 2 minutes of the movie, I almost turned it off. I thought it was just too weird. However, I kept watching, and in no time it grabbed my attiontion and I had to keep watching.
It's one of those movies where you watch through flashbacks, and although I really don't like that format, it worked well with this one.
The acting is brilliant, and even the younger boys who portray Kevin look like they could be his real-life brothers.
Tilda Swinton is amazing in her role as the frustrated mother who tries to love this boy as much as she knows how. Trouble is, she is just "trying", and he sees through that.
I appreciate the fact that there wasn't a lot of gorey imagery, and your mind is left to make up your own images, which can sometimes be more frightening.
All in all, I think it was a pretty good movie.
