I rate this film mainly for Thomas Horn's marvellous acting. The plot verged on the ridiculous and the boy, Oskar, seemed at times the sort of obnoxious brat the old man (good performance from veteran, Max von Sydow) should've shoved off the bridge. Wondering if Oskar possibly suffered from some autistic-type syndrome, I noted he did a lot of screaming, swearing and running about - but what for? He treated the doorman and the old man like - in his words - "shit". The film has had generally poor reviews mainly regarding the plot of a boy followed by his mother knocking on doors all over New York. However, for a newcomer, Thomas Horn has shown great acting ability. He carried the film extremely well and incredibly confidently but was let down by the unbelievable storyline.My Movie Rating: 6 / 10
I thought it was okay Thomas Horn did great but the story I found a bit slow moving and unrealistic. what kind of mother lets her nine year old go all around New York on his own at all times day and night. I do recommended it.My Movie Rating: 6 / 10
Definately a must see! Horn was superb, and I'm impressed with fact that he has acheived so much in his personal life, winning Jeapordy, which I saw, he was great! and learning so many languages! this boy is gonna go places in life!My Movie Rating: 10 / 10
This was an incredible movie in almost all regards. I just find it hard to rate something a 10, otherwise it probably would be. I hope Thomas has more roles soon!My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
