La imagen presenta un aspecto similar al de un DVD en lo que a calidad visual se refiere. No hay demasiada definición en general y el contraste es algo bajo.
¿Cómo se atreve el sello Divisa a comercializar un Blu-ray con semejante pésimo sonido? Esa es la pregunta que uno se hace cuando escucha la pista en castellano de Match Point. Ésta presenta una pésima calidad, ya que en lugar de presentarse en mono (como casi todos los films del director), lo hace en un pseudoestéreo mal realizado. Está claro que escuchar así esta película es todo un suplicio, pues la voz pasa constantemente del canal izquierdo al derecho creando una sensación muy molesta que poco podrán soportar. Así, si disponéis de un equipo de audio dotado de un modo monofónico, os aconsejo que lo activéis, ya que, de lo contrario, os será insoportable escuchar esta grabación. Este fallo está presente en las otras pistas de audio incluidas, catalán e inglés. Esto mismo sucede en el Blu-ray Scoop, película de Woody Allen editada (desgraciadamente) por el sello Divisa.Leer más ›
Match Point (Bluray, edición española distribuída por Divisa)
En cuanto a calidad de imagen, muy correcta, con buena definición y muy superior al DVD español, aunque se nota aún cierta tendencia a la tonalidad magenta como en aquel, el resultado en general es satisfactorio.
Tenemos 4 pistas: VO inglesa, doblaje español, catalán y audiodescripción en castellano para ciegos, todas en Mono 2.0.
En el sonido han cometido una chapuza. La película original es mono 1.0, y aquí han querido hacer un mono 2.0 que de alguna forma ha quedado desincronizado el canal izquierdo con el derecho, sonando enlatado. Si configuras el equipo para escuchar sólo uno de los dos canales el sonido es muy correcto y fiel al original, si no resultará molesto. Este defecto es más notable en el doblaje español, aunque también aparece en la VO, no me acordé de comprobar el catalán pero intuyo que no será una excepción.
Tiene subtítulos sólo en español y catalán, no le habrían venido mal unos en inglés también.Leer más ›

ACTING: Jonathan Rhys-Meyers does a superb job even though I think some of his dialogue seems stilted, but he's not to blame for that. He does a fantatsic job with what Woody Allen gives him. Scarlett Johansson is perfectly cast as the temptress, and she even gives her somewhat commercial character a human side as well. Great acting, even though the dialogue is stilted at times.
BOTTOM LINE: The film will lead you one way only to make a sharp left and take you where you wouldn't expect. You have no idea what's coming, and I dare you to guess the ending before it starts to unfold. The film is intelligent and an interesting watch, but it really doesn't boast any technical highlights. Cinematography is nothing to get excited over, but it's one doozy of a screenplay.
The film tells the story of Chris Wilton, and Irish born tennis player who realizes there's only so far his game will take him, so he takes a job as a tennis pro hoping to make a connection with London's upper class. His charm and ability ensure this will happen. He meets a client Tom Hewett, the son of a powerful business leader. Wilton marries Tom's sister, endears himself to his in-laws, and has a passionate affair with Nola, Tom's fiancé then later ex-girlfriend. Much of the film focuses on the ways in which Wilton goes to great lengths to cover up his affair.
The actors fit their roles well. Chris Wilton is played masterfully by Irish born Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Rhys Meyers has the look of someone who would fit into British upper class circles, and he comes across less as an imposter and more as a climber. Rhys Meyers, who is familiar to many who saw the film BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, again an Irish lad trying to make it in England, albeit in very different circles, demonstrates he's a believable and versatile actor. Scarlet Johansson plays the American actress Nola, likewise gives a phenomenal performance. The Hewett Family: Brian Cox as father Alec, Penelope Wilton as mother Eleanor, Mathew Goode as Tom and Emily Mortimer as Chris' wife Chloe seem like British aristocrats, oblivious to all that is happening round them, yet believable too. Perhaps one of the films strengths is the fact that the Hewetts are oblivious to Chris' scheming and climbing, and that Chris is not a character whose controlled by ambition as much as his desire not to loose the good life he's created for himself.
My guess is that since MATCH POINT was nominated for several Golden Globe Awards and will likely be nominated for Academy Awards too, people will take notice of this film. One of our local newspapers praised MATCH POINT because it was a Woody Allen film that was not typical Allen fare. Another paper praised it because it is so Woody Allen, but set in London rather than New York. The long and the short of it is, chances are you'll enjoy this film whether you like Woody Allen or not.
This is just a small portion of the plot for the new film "Match Point". I remember clearly the first time I saw the trailer and the reaction when it was revealed as a Woody Allen film. There were a couple of audible "whoa"s in the audience. Everything in the trailer was different from anything we had ever seen in an Allen film before; hints of a torrid love affair, the predominantly British cast and setting, the dramatic overtones with little evidence of comedy, hints at possible violence. In short, it surprised everyone. It surprised me. After almost a decade of slogging through mediocre films like "Small Time Crooks" and truly bad, bad films like "Curse of the Jade Scorpion", "Melinda and Melinda" (shudder!), and "Anything Else" (double shudder!!), my patience as a die hard Woody Allen fan was sorely tested. The trailer peaked my curiosity. Is it possible? Could he have made another great film? Something so different from his previous works to respark his career?
"Match Point" is a very good film, easily Allen's best in a decade. But it falls short of his classics, films like "Annie Hall", "Hannah and Her Sisters" and "Crimes and Misdemeanors" for a few reasons.
One of the biggest surprises is that Allen would set a film anywhere other than his beloved New York. But the London setting works well for Allen's writing and directing style. His writing is a little unnatural at times; a large majority of the characters in his films speak as though they all attended an Ivy League college and consistently stand around talking about philosophy, opera and `making love'. I'm not saying this doesn't happen, but in his less successful films, it rings false. In his last great films, this worked because the people who spoke these lines were wealthy, educated and it was believable. He also balanced these storylines with the comedic antics of his character.
Another positive change Allen has begun to make is that he is casting other actors as leads in his films. Will Farrell, Kenneth Branagh, John Cusack and others have essentially played the "Woody Allen" role in some of his recent offerings. This is a step in the right direction, but in most of these cases, these younger actors are still speaking Allen's dialogue and it just doesn't work. Strangely, in "Point", there is no "Woody Allen" character, adding another level of surprise to the film. He has created something almost entirely new, challenging his skills and abilities.
The predominantly British cast and locations add a level of authenticity to his writing, helping it seem more natural. We fully believe that a bunch of upper crust Brits would act and speak like this. At one point, late in the film, a character quickly talks about neuroses, reminding us that this is in fact a Woody Allen film. But before and after this point, the thought never occurred to me. You might almost forget.
The biggest and best change in the new film is that Allen doesn't subject us to another interpretation of his character running around with an actress (or two) twenty to thirty years his junior. We are spared endless scenes of these actresses claiming what a great lover Allen's character is. Thank GOD! Allen is a funny guy, but to watch Elizabeth Berkeley, Helen Hunt and others fight over Allen, and his "ability to make love", is just painful.
In "Point", Allen casts Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Scarlet Johannson as the ill-fated lovers. Emily Mortimer completes the trio as Chris' supportive, yet eager to be pregnant wife. As the film begins, we realize we are in the hands of an accomplished filmmaker. Through a series of short scenes, Chris' life is quickly established and Rhys Meyers hints that his character may be a gold-digger, placing himself in situations in which he is more likely to meet the well-to-do. Then again, he could just be trying to make his life better; he is constantly trying to learn and seems to work hard. But Chris remains enough of an enigma to keep us guessing. As his life begins to get better, it also starts to unravel. He quickly becomes comfortable in his new lifestyle and sees it slipping out of his hands if Nola gets her way.
Emily Mortimer brings a quiet vulnerability to the role of Chloe. She adds just the right level of love and support to spoiled rich girl, making her character interesting and believable. Just as things begin to get complicated, she begins nagging Chris about having a baby. This causes her husband to vacillate back and forth. Should he stay with Chloe or leave her for a more passionate, but less comfortable existence with Nola?
The biggest problem in the film is Scarlet Johannson. She is good, but Allen's dialogue does not blend well with her age, lack of experience and accent. In her mouth, his dialogue sounds stiff and forced. The contrast between Johannson and the British actors is really quite noticeable. She is much better in her scenes with Tom, as his fiancée, sharing alcohol and food, flirting a bit, putting on an act. When she becomes the center of Chris' attention, she does and says things which seem unnatural becoming a fairly stereotypical "jilted lover". How exactly does a young American woman come up with the resources to move from England to the States and then back to London again? How does she survive in London on a shop girl's salary?
Also, there is a point during the resolution when characters, specifically two British detectives, talk about things we haven't seen. Their descriptions are amusing, but it is a sloppy method of storytelling.
These two points aside, "Match Point" represents a return to form for a master filmmaker. As the story unfolds, and we realize the events will be told in a series of tableaus, leaving out the unnecessary bits, we realize we are in the hands of a master. Sit back, enjoy and let Allen tell his story.
If Chris marries Chloe, he will be set for life, since Chloe's father is willing to groom him for a job in his successful business empire. As the son-in-law of Alec Hewett, Chris would have prestige, a luxurious home, a personal driver, an expense account, and all the perks that go with being married to the daughter of a rich and generous man. If he pursues Nola, Chris stands to lose his best chance of permanently escaping the poverty of his childhood.
The first half of "Match Point" is brilliant. Meyers is mesmerizing as a self-effacing, calculating, and unctuous social climber, whose underlying motives are buried beneath layers of politeness. Johannson is at her most alluring as Nola, an insecure and penniless American whose sole asset is her gorgeous appearance. She is desperate to break into acting, but senses that she will never be good enough to succeed. Brian Cox is wonderful as Alec Hewett, Chloe's kind-hearted father who takes Chris under his wing, hoping that this young man will make his daughter happy. Penelope Wilton plays Eleanor Hewett, Alec's judgmental and outspoken wife, with icy calm. Eleanor detests Nola and cannot abide the thought that this low class young woman will soon become her daughter-in-law.
Woody Allen explores the universal themes of greed, lust, self-deception, and betrayal. There is an old Yiddish proverb, "Better an ounce of luck than a pound of gold." Chris believes that he can have everything he wants, including the gold, if his luck holds out. Allen suggests that we may live in a world where justice is an unattainable ideal. Our fate may be determined as much by chance as it is by our actions or our virtues.
"Match Point" is beautifully shot, tightly edited, and briskly paced. Since Chris Wilton is an opera lover, Allen provides soaring background music by Verdi, Bizet, Donizetti, and Rossini. I cannot reveal or even hint at the surprise ending, but the agonizing suspense in this film is at times reminiscent of a Hitchcock thriller. Although the denouement is not entirely credible or satisfying, I guarantee that "Match Point" is one of those movies that viewers will be pondering and discussing for days after they leave the theater.
See what makes Match Point so mysterious and vile is that I could tell most of the film and the viewer still wouldn't be prepared for the huge plot twist. I have seen some crazy twist in a movie but the one in this film was badly needed. You start to get lost somewhere around the middle when the director works that movie magic that makes time go faster. You have no idea what the heck is going on because you had no fair warning like a big "2 years later " sign and you think it's still the same year. Besides that and seeing Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Scarlett Johansson rolling around every 10 minutes I'd say everything else was done well. I would actually recommend this movie because what Meyers does at the end is shocking and it makes this film worth sitting through.
