It could have been a thrilling psychological mystery. Instead it was a vapid plot that relied on mindless use blood and horror as a manipulation to hold the audience's attention.
Worst movie I have endured in years. No story, no decent acting, don't waste your time!
Might as well have watched paint dry... might have enjoyed it more !!!
Worst movie I have ever seen. Do NOT go see this TRASH. I cannot believe I paid to see this. Left before it was over.
This is the worst movie I have seen in over a decade and I see at least one each week. I wanted to walk out after 45 mins but waited until an hour and a half to leave. Others in the theatre walked out. Pathetic at best-save your money!! Is it any wonder theatre attendance has dropped when this is the quality of current cinema??? Shameful!!
I disliked the pace of the movie...the darkness of the movie...the weak storyline...the fact that three superior actors(namely Lawrence, Bardem, & Harris have lowered themselves to make this piece of trash. It's not a good storyline, I don't care what anyone says about it. This movie is honest-to-God garbage.
Terrible movie, none of it made any real meaning, other people in the theatre where laughing and wondered if they could get back their money
waste of time, very slow moving
Yeah, that must have been my problem!? My mind hasn't transcended enough to find baby eating and crispy corpses wonderfully artistic. You have got to be joking, this movie was a pile of horse sh*t, if I wanted a horror movie I would've seen one, and it certainly would've been better than this Appalling garbage. Don't waste your money, go see "IT" instead, at least Stephen King has some talent for horror and you don't have to guess what his movie is about.
This movie did not make any sense to me. It was confusing and I kept saying "what the ??" Lots of unanswered questions when I walked out. I do not suggest seeing it at all. Worst movie I ever saw
Just plain stupid.
The worst movie I have ever seen. What a waste of my time.
NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I EVER BEEN TO SUCH A HORRIBLE MOVIE PLEASE PLEASE I BEG YOU DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME....YOU HAVE BEEN WARN...oh they make you put up one star for this movie or you can't submit your comments ????????
"0" horrible movie surprised Javier, Michelle, and Ed Harris would lower themselves to be a part of this crap. Should get our money back + time wasted. Still don't really no what it's about. I love a good thriller or Horror movies. this was trash. Jennifer find yourself a new boyfriend.
The previews to this movie misrepresented what its about. Its not a typical Hollywood thriller. Its not mainstream material. I came away with a WTF wasted my time feeling. But AFTER I read what it was suppose to be...it made sense. The cast is solid. The acting is solid. The movie is definitely weird. Aronofsky is the director. Think Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan weirdness then times that by four and you have Mother! I may see it again at the discount theatre just to "get it" as Ive been thinking about its meaning. Again...its NOT about some nutso mother weilding a knife or a psychological Hollywood thriller...its an artsy thriller for sure.
Pretentious garbage. Worst film I've seen in years.
I really didn't like this moving. It was overacted and the plot didn't make sense. It could have but it just wasn't well written.
Stupid movie. Stupid Jennifer Lawrence. Stupid Aronofsky. My friend said that I ‘just don’t understand film noir.’ What a load of bourgeoisie bullshit.
This was a terrible film, so over-the-top that any semblance of meaning was totally lost.
I am 51 years old and this is the first time in my life that I walked out of a movie theater. On my way out, another woman did the same thing and we requested to get our money back, another first. DO NOT GO UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES - You will be extremely disappointed and even angry at yourself. Don't be fooled by the actors in this movie. I will never again go see a Darren Aronofsky.
Well directed, well acted, bizarre and thought provoking. I liked it. Exploration of an insane narcissist.
It is a movie- allegory, very complicated, touching and philosophical. The best movie of the year.
LESSON LEARNED, READ COMMENTS FIRST!!!!!!!!!! I didn't understand the messages of the movie... :( well, maybe it doesn't have one. But yes you will KEEP WONDERING EVEN AFTER THE MOVIE IS DONE... HAHAHAHA
Didn't make any sense. Ridiculous don't waste your money.
What a load of Crap !!!
Excellent acting. Thought provoking story line. Unfortunately, it requires the movie goers to actually think which directly corresponds to the low ratings. Spoiler alert....The actors represent God, Mother earth/nature, Adam & Eve, Cain and Abel, Jesus, mortal man and woman who worship god and/or tear his creation apart. God is creating life and keeps trying to get it right at the expense of the Mother. Ed Harris (Adam) is clearly seen missing a rib as he is sick and throwing up into the toilet. You'll either love it or hate it. Give it a chance and open your mind to something new.
Unadulterated crapola :)
Doesn't even deserve one star. Awful movie, waste of my money
After seeing this disturbing film, you will say "what the fck did I just watch?"
I couldn't take anymore but my wife wanted too see if it got better. Bad mistake. Don't waste your money
Worse movie ever! Made no sense!
My husband and I walked out of the movie. Stupist movie We have ever seen! What kind of lunatic thinks up stuff like this. Don't waste your money and time on this movie. Shame on the actors and movie makers!
The film for me was a rough ride that I just couldn't enjoy. If you're wondering why people think the film is disturbing... well that's because while people were parading a newborn baby, they snapped the babies neck and started to cannibalize it like a turkey. Despite baby symbolizing Jesus, I think there is certain line filmmaker shouldn't cross without being morally bankrupt. Anyhow the production felt low quality, it didn't have that standard Hollywood feel to it. Although all the story takes place in a house... I can't say it was boring, in fact, it was exciting just not in a good way.
I didn't understand the movie. Had no idea why it was named Mother. Pretty gross in a lot of parts especially when they ate her baby. That was just discussing!!!!
A great work. Challenging and disturbing.
It's a shame I can't give it a zero. Dumbest movie I've seen in years.
Bizarre!! May have been well acted, but the plot was just plain maniacal!! I don't know how I made it all the way through. Probably just because JL was in it.
Someone below said you have to have a high IQ to understand the movie. Like the college professor who lectures you about life and can't change a tire, boil water, or do his own taxes. The movie was a dud, followed by a splat and finished off with an Oops. Is that understandable enough for you Rocket Man?
I'm 20 and I work in a movie theater. I get to clean up after the theater lets out. No one goes to this movie, and I've seen it six times myself, and I can't tell you what it's about. Boring collection of dysfunctional people.
