The Great Gatsby, one of the most awaited movies of 2013 somehow a disappointment to me. I was so excited for the film, I thought it would be great movie, but unfortunately it didn’t reach my very high expectations. I know, the cinematography, the acting, the set it was all great! but the story was a little bit boring. I would understand making “The Lord of The Rings” in 2:30 hrs, but not this drama! I think the story is good, but this looooong duration of the movie – that made me sleep at some point – “diluted” its story. the moral behind behind the movie was great! and it had some really breathtaking scenes – I am not going to ruin it – and this suspense of discovering the true Gatsby that should stay until the end of the movie started disappearing a little by little because of the slow pace of the movie. Anyways, I would watch it again to understand it more because after all, little are the movies produced nowadays that have a moral behind them!
