If I had to sum it up in one word it would be "disturbing". I don't even have a reference to compare this film to, it was a draining watch. Afterwards I needed to just take a break and chill out to something funny because it was unerving and tragic.

This movie was just so safe there was no edge no reality. It is an unrealistic fantasy without any true consequences and one which was never as clever as it wanted to be. When Bale, Adams and Bradley are on screen the film enchants you with fake hair and costumes. Lawrence on the other hand was miscast, she is far too young to be playing this manipulative, anxiety ridden wife to Bale, and her scenes are the weakest for me. I adore Jennifer Lawrence I know I am not the only one but I just could not believe her character. I feel like so many people will love this film because it is just regular pudding, it is not bad it is just a cup of pudding that is safe enough for old people to eat and swallow and that makes it perfect oscar bait. Congrats for all the awards the actors and the film are going to win.

The racing scenes were actually quite good, but it did feel a little long. I feel like maybe certain things could have been cut, like James dissolving marriage with Oliva Wilde which really didn't add much to the film or his character.

I didn't buy into this film fo whatever reason and halfway through I wanted Sandra Bullock's character to die just so it could be over. Obviously I must have watched a different film from everyone else.

The directon, music and DiCaprio are the only saving points of the film. If Gatsby managed to get an sympathy from me it was because he was portrayed by DiCaprio. I didn't care for the film.
