"This one had me; It had me in the palm of its cinematic hand from the minute it began until the second it was over;I was riveted by what I was watching and hearing. I don't usually have trouble deciphering the Aussie accent but i must admit to a spot of bother once or twice here; good thing I watched it on DVD and was able to rewind a few times. I consider this of course, MY failing totally and it has NOTHING to do with the quality of this film or the performances. THE INTERVIEW is one of the most magnificently acted movies I have seen in a long time. I must confess to having never seen Hugo Weavving in anything other than the Lord Of the Rings films. Here he gives an absolutely mesmerizing performance and he's matched, scene for scene, by TONY MARTIN, an Australian actor whom I have grown to respect enormously--just based on what I saw him accomplish in this film.Powerhouse performances from he and Hugo Weaving really carry the film but that's not to say that co-writer/director Craig Monahan doesn't show a masterful sense of style and pace. This is just a fantastic movie."
