Not a single scene in this movie focused on food in a way to make it appetizing. I envied no one eating in this film. I can't go ten seconds into the jail cooking scene from Goodfellas without my mouth watering and after this I took the dressing off my salad!

Burnt is, fundamentally, a film about a chef who really wants to get 3 stars from a tire company. Okay, I know that they're a big deal in the culinary world, but this film is perhaps one of the worst of the year. The idea that anyone involved thought they were making a decent film is hilarious. Everything is poorly written and there are no redeeming qualities or characters. The film's best scene is delivered by Cooper putting a plastic bag on his head. F grade.

As someone who watches a shit ton of cooking shows and is married to someone who worked in restaurants for over a decade, I learned absolutely nothing from this. Your mileage may vary depending on your interest and exposure to the food service biz. But yeah: superstar chefs are assholes and are prone to addiction. YW. There, just saved you 100 minutes. There's one pretty neat twist that I didn't see coming but it falls squarely in the "professionally acted, immediately forgettable" zone for me.

Very intense drama centered on Bradley Cooper's character as a chef. It's more about him and the life of a chef, so while there's food, of course, it's not the focus of the film. It's not like Jon Favreu's "Chef," which made the food as much a character as anything else, and made you crave what was on the screen. Cooper is excellent, as always, and Sienna Miller and Daniel Bruhl are good as well. The story was not what I was looking for in a film, but it's ok if you like these actors.

Not really a fiasco, but it's a soulless movie with some key credibility problems. Omar Sy's part is small, but he has the most effective moment of the film and kills it.

I think it's important for a film about food to make you hungry (see Paxton's review). This didn't do that, so you just had to accept that Cooper's character was a culinary genius, and I didn't really get it. The performances were fine, but the plot wasn't really engaging. Well made enough, but not really gripping. Remember that short-lived series Kitchen Confidential, based on the Bourdain book, that Cooper was in? Me neither.

Chefs and fangirls of Bradley Cooper will enjoy this film, but that market segment is just too small for Burnt to do well. I didn't care for the backstory, but the kitchen atmosphere is pretty much how fine dining restaurants operate. The acting was believable and Alicia Vikander is looking hotter than ever.

Constantly keeps referring to a vague backstory we don't much care about. Otherwise it's a good, well-rounded cooking fix. Also, on a personal note, I'd like chefs to scream less - would make me respect their food more. Maybe that's also the final lesson of the film.

It was a beautiful love letter to food and it was as if the food network commissioned a movie with great actors. The cast is excellent and famous people pop up repeatedly and constantly. The problem that it has is that there's a few pointless subplots that add nothing to the story, which admittedly is pretty dry. Cooper does a nice job playing watered down Gordon Ramsay. Good but could've been better with a more competent script.

I had some idea that this was bad, based on some other reviews, but I don't understand what all the hate is about. This is underrated. Very good editing, the atmosphere seems spot on and the Miller casting is absolutely perfect! *Good

Much better than the preview indicates. Of course if you're not into drama and dialogue involving an excellent cast, most of which is little known, and one-of-a-kind cinematography involving food as art, with no real violence on screen, then this isn't for you. Of course the plot is pretty much a typical framework, but the trimmings are what make it glow. It is unique.

Underrated. That much is clear. It may as well have been called 'the Gordon Ramsay biopic'. I went in with low expectations after reading several reviews, but was positively surprised. The script is relatively well written, the characters are fleshed out, solid direction and delicious cinematography galore. It seems like many people don't know how the atmosphere can be in a top tier kitchen. Let alone a top chef striving for his third star. I suggest to go and watch his 1998 show Boiling Point.

I don't know what's funnier: the random repurposing of the Donnie Darko soundtrack, or how no cooking movie will ever trump the one with the talking, cooking rat. Alicia, though ?

Utterly scattered. The film hinges on a backstory that is never really explained and feels totally empty because of it. The food isn't well detailed and I didn't know what they were cooking half of the time. Skip.

It took a little long to get to the character growth, and yes, it is a familiar story that doesn't go much further than you'd expect. I thought the acting was solid and found it to be a decent watch.

This may be a biased score as I'm an industry professional myself I judged the movie on realism and emotional pull, of which it hit high marks on both grades. Cooper definitely studied for his role.... he knew exactly what a burnt out chef is like. It was kind of funny watching him freak out over trends that have come and gone already (sous vide, mirco greens etc). Like others have said, seemingly important parts of the story and character depth are vague, but it's a concise character profile

I feel a little burnt by this one. Bradley Cooper does have a good performance as Adam Jones, a diva in the kitchen. I just don't love movies like this. I felt like I was watching a reality tv show on the Food Network. It's also hard to like a character when he's cursing and breaking plates around a kitchen screaming that things aren't perfect. The one part I liked about this movie was when he was collecting the other chefs for his kitchen...

There are a lot of culinary related films out there, and Burnt merely adds itself to that list. The comedy works quite well but the drama aspects quickly turn to melodrama. Too many food montages slow down the pace of the film, making it feel overdrawn. The film provides a story of personal growth, a happy ending and a great performance from Brühl; otherwise it's pretty mediocre.

Burnt feels like a Food Network telefilm, which at least indicates that it knows its target audience. But the screenplay also reeks of attempts to cash in on the Gordon Ramsay verbally-abusive-chef stereotype. But flying dishes and hurled spatulas don't make the plot or the characters any more compelling. They just make the world of cooking look onerous and unappealing, with all the salesmanship of a travel guide for North Korea. (http://frontrowcentral.com/2015/11/03/burnt-2015/)

Bradley Cooper is great, and Sienna Miller is amazing. But the premise-angry man with bad childnood finds that he actually needs others - needs more than just that old story line. It's a good basis, but not sufficient to carry the movie. So I guess the movie needs more plot. Entertaining, but not fun.DramaFFlop rating:(see my profile for details) Dialogue=4, Rudeness=4, Acting=4, Messages=2, Action=3, Funny=0, Filmography=3, Lovable Characters=2, Orchestration=3, Plot=2.

Burnt seconds those assertions, insisting that what matters most is our relationships with those closest to us. That's a great message, but one that's ultimately, um, OK, burnt by the crass content baked into this R-rated recipe. (pluggedin.com)

Hard to buy a chef film with so many easygoing dialogues -- analogies between cooking and being yourself or the entire lesson that good food is the one that makes you stop eating just to fully appreciate it. Also, Wells' inability to look at the kitchen as a kitchen -- and not a boxing arena, please -- makes the picture look like a faux fighter/rock star bio. Cooper gives all he can -- he puts his head in a bag and try to suffocate himself to death --, but can't save such an undercooked film.

Burnt is a movie that sabotages its main character, gives us boring melodrama, and is a consequence-free environment in which being a jerk is perfectly acceptable as long as you have a modicum of talent. It's slow-moving and gives its supporting cast relatively little to do. Burnt is the cinematic equivalent of the Whopper - but a Whopper that also insults you as you eat it, making you feel bad about yourself. You're better off skipping it.

I'm a firm believer in "Food is for eating, not admired", so all this male compensating trying to make cooking a macho thing just doesn't work for me. That's why I usually skip cooking shows, and that's why I was only mildly enjoying Burnt (2015) regardless of decent performances. That and the formula being very standard. It's one you could apply to any "inspirational" film. At least it wasn't nearly as bad as Aloha (2015).

The family and I literally had nothing else to do one night and this was the only thing at the nearest theater we hadn't seen, so voila. It is preferable to sitting around doing absolutely nothing. Cooper's character is a monster douche, though, and the movie has about two endings too many.

I'm pretty sure this is a better film than I think it was so I've upped my rating a little... honestly I enjoyed the parts where there was cooking, most of the rest I just switched off for. I'm also not sure how it ended, as the conclusion seems to be delivered in a bizarre scene composed entirely of knowing looks and sideways smiles, and I lack the patience to decipher fictional humans' facial expressions.

It's certainly not terrible, but it's kind of a nothing film for me. I think the way they approached his story was interesting (forward thinking, rather than flashbacks) and the performances were good. But it doesn't bring anything spectacular to the table and ends up being an okay movie with nothing to show for it.
