Woody Allen is odd-we all know this. But he is also very talented. He directed this and wrote the screen play. He incorporated the opera music so stunningly and at such kee points in the movie that as you travel through each scene, it is more meaningful - there are such subtle, beautiful operatic arias from many years back which also adds to the uniqueness of this film. When I viewed this film for the first time, it was because I am a Johansson fan; she is perfect for HER role here. But what I found was that ALL the actors were just great and Jonathan Rhys Meyers was superb, so handsome, so perfect for his role. The setting is London including beautiful countryside and estates but it is the story and its intrigue that is continually satisfying. Woody Allen knows human behavior, knows what people are capable of, even those who are upper class, educated, have always done the right thing etc etc. At the risk of sounding conceited, I'll just say that the reviewers who did not like this film maybe have a hard time sitting still, or like only action films, or find British films boring, or don't appreciate someone like Allen illustrating human behavior in his odd but amazing ways. For movie lovers, it's a must, a classic. By the way, Jonathan Rhys Meyers played King Henry VIII on the ShowTime cable network mini-series which was fabulous. So for those of you who also love British work, both this film and the ShowTime series are must haves.

The movie is magical & the british accents are lovely! Though, it starts as a type of love story ... it slowly adds twists and turns that will have you consumed and wondering what will happen next. I highly recommend it!

I'm normally not a big fan of Woody Allan movies however Match Point definitely surpassed all my expectations. Many critics have viewed this work as proof of the fading director's resurrection. I view it as a piece of solid storytelling from a great director. His films contain ironic humor and great dialog that you cannot help but admire this 70-year-old funny little man. "Match Point" represents a different kind of Allen because his known set Manhattan/New York has changed to rainy London. Allen expands his views, and the result is one working combination of new locations charm and variety. That fact made "Match Point" even more likable. The irony was there but instead of raving comedy he gave us some completely different. "Match Point" is a story about love, passion and coincidence. Ex-tennis professional Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Myers) gets caught up with intriguing affair with his brother’s bride Nola Rice (Scarlett Johansson). New heat is more interesting than his life with his wife Chloe (doll-faced Emily Mortimer. The passion becomes so powerful and overwhelming that it will have a huge impact on what will happen next. The end of the film was unexpected and I could not believe the irony of being at right place at the right time. Ball is definitely back at this old saxophonist's court! What a work of art! If you like production of Woody Allen then you will fall in love with "Match Point"!

Match Point was the first Woody Allen movie ever i saw-i loved it! his incorporation of opera music is genius. i contemplated the ending about midway through-but hadn't the slightest thought that he might actually-if you haven't seen this movie yet you definitely should i won't ruin it for you.
