Overrated! One of the most overrated movies i've had the displeasure of watching! Like all Danny Boyle movies really! Dexterror8:13pm Sat 23 Mar
Not a classic, But better than the 5.5 rating suggests. I'd give it an 8/10... Wabsnazm3:18pm Tue 10 Jul
top film better than anything the yanks are turning out. get a grip10:39am Sun 1 May
overhyped In the words of my work collegue who watched it with me on boring evening. "there goes 2 hours of my life I will never get back again".
Avoid. sparky8:58pm Sat 30 Apr
SHAME on Indian Govt. Thanks to CORRUPT Indian Govt, movies like this can still be made, the oscar should go to them, after all they are to thank for the slums that still exist! Indian Govt would rather steal money, then help their poor citizens. CorruptIndianGovt.2:16pm Sat 30 Apr
Deserves the oscar A wonderful film. Full of energy, humour, violence,love, comradeship. Does it matter iif the story is a bit far fetched? Isn't that what story telling is all about? The locations are tremendous, and the children are natural actors which is rare as hens teeth in this day and age of posy exhibitionists. Agatha11:53pm Sat 4 Dec
Absoloute drivel this has got to be one the most hyped films of the decade. Shame as if i'd had no expectations i would have probabaly though it OK, but all in all its a couple of hours of boredom. markymarksurrey10:55pm Sat 4 Dec
goog, bt i like it, but my query is, why so many indians, i mean, i know London, and it doesnt have that many indians, i sware i didnt see one qhitw person. weird. BTW not a BNP suporter, just wondering lol. The weather seemed realy gd all the tyme as well, it isnt like that all the time, as we all no from snow lol. confused.com7:53pm Sat 4 Dec
read the book! the book is so much better! loops5:10pm Sat 4 Dec
a grate film to watch the one true book.8:34pm Tue 6 Apr
Very good I saw this in the theatres with much reluctance - it seemed too harrowing. And it was very harrowing, but it moved me to tears. As a child of Indian immigrants, the depiction of poverty struck me because it matched up with my own observations of it from my countless holidays in India. Definitely a worthwhile film to watch, although definitely not 'feel-good'!! kc11:05pm Mon 5 Apr
Hmm Yeah i agree with some of the comments, a nice film, well shot and well acted but did not blow me away- not sure if it is the feel good story of the year- i think everyone got caught up in the hype 7/10 Sound79:39pm Mon 5 Apr
JABBA is on the money... Totally over rated, it's an OK watch but the hype was just too much. Jeffers6:53pm Mon 5 Apr
It is... ...overhyped (which is why you should treat 'hype' of any kind lightly, including Oscar winners, and make your own mind up about anything). But that being said, it is watchable, if there's not much else on. To G.C. (below) - I completely believe the police would torture a child like this; my ethnicity is indian (born and bred in England) and having visited India, have seen the police do some unpleasant things. It's one of the things I thoroughly detest about the country. The antics of the street kids are not beyond belief for me, either. Performing so well on the quiz is not so believable, but hey, it is a movie. Travis T3:37pm Mon 5 Apr
A load of old crap This film shows that Oscar winning means nothing at all. A thoroughly silly story line with amateur acting. The police in India may have corrupt practices but does anyone believe they would torture a child for doing well in a telly quiz show?. G.C.11:48am Mon 5 Apr
Not what I expected... ...from the ad's, I thought it was going to be "the feel-good film of the year". Quite a few moments certainly weren't feel-good. Good overall plot, would recommend to friends and family. Alice4:07pm Wed 17 Feb
wow This film is truely amazing. It may not have the same effect on adults as it does my generation, but i feel it really opens teenagers eye to what poverty in india is really like and how lucky most of us are not to be treated the way the girls are in the film. a fifteen year girl10:36pm Sun 24 Jan
Donít watch. Utterly awful The word.9:04pm Sun 24 Jan
wrong rating I wanted to rate Slumdog Millionaire as a 9, but clicked the rate that was already in the box of 5.1. This film is amazing, I don't know why it has been TVGuide. Em8:57pm Sun 24 Jan
most overated film ever JABBA8:55pm Sun 24 Jan
Come on... I agree with some of the comments: what is wrong with some of you? That's a very good film, even so it's not one of my favorite ones. Some teen movies get 8 out of 10, and you only quote this one at 4,9? Not sure what you're trying to prove here, but those low rates don't fool anybody, sorry :) Dee7:51pm Sun 24 Jan
Stunning Vibrant, full of life and full of passion from the actors to the makers.
Plot is hollow in areas but it doesn't matter, the visuals alone put Avatar's $300 million budget to shame. David Poland7:15pm Sun 24 Jan
tyrone i think ken a deibre's relationship is in tatters in this film tyrone7:05pm Sun 24 Jan
Ignore these people trying to be 'too cool for school' These people sayings its rubbish are just trying to seem better than everyone else because it was so popular. Even if they personally didn't like it, it's still a very good film.
It's one of 2 or 3 really good films I've seen in the last few years, and I have pretty high standards.
Also, I think this film is quite different to the way it's been promoted, in a very good way, much edgier than it's 'feel good' billing. If you've never seen it, you must watch it. tooplanx6:14pm Sun 24 Jan
This film was way too hyped up, but isn't that always the way. It's a passable film, and only won so many awards because of the emotive content. And why on earth they chose to advertise it with Florence and the Machine is beyond me... 4:58pm Sun 24 Jan
Touching.... This is a good film and I'm not sure what some of the other reviews are getting at. A colourful exotic feel good romp that with an excellent cast and great music. 8/!0 Steady Eddy3:25pm Sun 24 Jan
Crap Saw it at the cinema, awful. True Blue5:02pm Sat 23 Jan
Not as good as CITY OF GOD! This film is alright. A little Overated. Really good in parts but the first thing I thought when watching this is that it is very similar to the 2002 film City of God about kids in slums in Brazil. TONY_GORDON5:48pm Thu 21 Jan
its this film is alright.
