    I actually really enjoyed this film. I’m a semi fan of Bradley Cooper. The rest of the cast of Words is really good as well including Olivia Wilde and Jeremy Irons. This film is about a writer who is struggling (surprise, surprise) and finally writes the novel of his dreams, which means it is successful. However, he didn’t actually write the novel, he found it. The story follows the odd telling of his story along with the story of the book he wrote. The reason I liked this film is because it was original. I don’t think I have ever seen a story like this. It was interesting and exciting and kept me focused through the entire film. Definitely a movie I would recommend to friends

    This was not a good movie and I don’t think it is worth seeing in the theaters unless you want to waste your time. The story within the story within the story is not an easy thing to do and it is not the most original thing to do and the makers of this film failed on both ends miserably. The film lack fluidity, it is was hard to watch and follow and it was also unintentionally funny (and trust me it was not meant to be funny). The film was smug and over-plotted and even though it had a great cast it did not utilize them in the best way. Overall, i felt like I was wasting my money and time watching this film and that is not a good feeling when all I wanted to do is have a good time in the theater.

    “Did you really think you could steal a man’s life and expect there would be no price to pay?” So asks a mysterious but angry figure known simply to audiences as The Old Man, played masterfully by British thespian Jeremy Irons. If only the rest of the movie carried as much gravitas as Irons is able to convey in this simple line when the full revelation of the story comes to head.

    The Words is a movie that is much better on paper and in theory than in actuality. It plays as a basic game of cat and mouse, except that Irons isn’t playing the cat. Bradley Cooper’s Rory Jansen is both cat and mouse, chasing himself and tormenting his wayward soul with his own deep seated sense of guilt and moral failings. He has, after all, gone from a struggling writer to an overnight literary sensation with a story that it turns he did no write but merely stumbled upon, presented as his own, and reaped the maximum benefit. When The Old Man reappears on the scene – haggard, homeless, and full of quiet rage – he promises to make Rory pay for his obscene transgression.

    It all sounds like it should be thrilling and full of suspense – how will Rory extract himself from the clutches of a man who has seen not only greatest life’s work taken away from him, but who has been hardened by failure, death, and poverty? He has nothing to lose, while Rory has everything to lose. Oh, the suspense.

    Alas, it all boils down to one thousand shots of Bradley Cooper looking dazed and confused, which is a pity because it could have been so much more. The movie never allows itself to go deeper because it thinks the only thing that Rory should be feeling is fear. What would compel a man to throw away everything he’s worked so hard for without so much as a thought as to the potential consequences? It’s something that The Old Man has had to live with, but only dawns on Rory once it’s far too late.

    I'm not sure exactly what happened to Bradley Cooper's career. but lately he seems to be picking all the wrong projects. He had a good run with The Hangover and Limitless (and arguably The Hangover 2) but after that he's been seen in mostly duds. His supporting role in Hit & Run was good, but the movie isn't going to be seen by as many millions as saw either of the The Hangovers so if he benefits from it at all remains to be seen. The Words is the latest dud in his resume. It tries really hard to be something that it thinks is pretty cool and captivating but is really just another droll stroll through the land of Hollywood's favorite suspense story device: the mind. I like Bradley Cooper, but he seems hella confused in this role, just looking perpetually perplexed when he should know by now to try other facial expressions. Jeremy Irons is spot on, but even he can't save the film from total irrelevance.

    Nice try, guys, but no cigar. Actually, no cigarette even. This movie is a novel concept (pardon the pun) but it never really takes off the way it should. You keep waiting for something big to happen, but mostly it's just Bradley Cooper looking scared and out of breath in scene after scene and shot after shot. I guess it makes sense that the character he plays thinks he's being chased down by a man who wrote the book he ends up saying was his writing (he stole it) but it seems like he's mostly just running away from his own sense of guilt. If anything saves this movie from total abyss and obliviousness, it's the masterful work done by Jeremy Irons who plays his part like a crownless king, one who knows his position but who has seen it snatched away by an unworthy usurper. His performance is the only real reason to watch this movie: he makes it walk even when the situation insists that the movie trip over itself and fall to the ground.
