Daddyjt 8,357 Posted December 2, 2020 Author Share Posted December 2, 2020 I revisited this one the other night with my son, after everyone else had gone to bed. I had forgotten how great a movie Jacob’s Ladder is. Not a horror movie exactly, not a war movie exactly, and not a thriller exactly. It’s a little bit of everything, and it works rather well. A great performance by a young Tim Robbins, and an equally great performance by the late Elizabeth Peña - but the one that really steals the show is Danny Aiello. Some downright creepy moments, but no cheap jump-scares. The cinematography is absolutely amazing, and the score mirrors the film to a “T”. Also one of the greatest twists of an ending, and I’ll for warn you - this is one if the 5 or so movies that actually makes me cry a bit at the end... Emotionally powerful stuff, and a timeless message. 4 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
