View Full Version : Apt Pupil -- The Film

This was an under appreciated film. Ian McKellen did an outstanding job as a former SS commander in WWII. Of course, he always does a great acting job (ever see his Richard The III? He was awesome). Renfro, too, was excellent.
Just my .03 cents worth.

100% agree...but having Star Movies show this film for a considerable amount of time makes up for the "underappreciation."

I love the fact it was the boy that turned out to be the evil one. His obsession was frightening. Outstanding performances from both Renfro and McKellen.

I wonder if a soviet-america would produce boys like that.

Really? I thought this was a turkey.
Renfro was awful and Sir McKellan wasted his time.
It also had a script that left much to be desired and a director who hadn't completed teething. Mr. Singer did a great job on other (read: later) flicks but truly showed poor judgment when he didn't cast Heath Ledger as Todd.

I hated that they screwed up the ending but I really did like the fist 2/3 of it.
