Wall to wall great acting but the film never stopped feeling like a play. With the nature of the material that's probably unavoidable though

Both Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are great in this film. Davis in particular deserved the Oscar she won for this role. The script mostly focuses on a few characters and it works.Overall I would recommend this film.

I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. I was hoping for more entanglement, especially with leads like Washington and Davis. From the beginning the acting of Washington felt unnatural. I didn't believe it and it all seemed too much. 52/100.

W3E0P2S1V1M1A2R1. Touching at moments and of course perfectly acted (by the leads at least), and actually well translated for the screen while still retaining its play-like quality. But there's something unfulfilling about the way the play stays tied down to the house when so much of the conflict is rooted elsewhere, and it made me feel cheated in this version.

Simply the best-acted film of 2016; August Wilson's great play is filmed very well indeed, with Washington doing some of the best work of his career and Davis matching him step for step. (Stephen Henderson, as his co-worker and friend, gives a lovely, underrated performance.) A touch stagy in the first half, but a privilege to behold.

Stage to film adaptations are tough, and there haven't been too many successful ones. This is especially true of plays written after 1955. Washington's fidelity to the source material is commendable, but it is also a hindrance because it doesn't translate into great cinema. He gives an intense and believable performance as an extremely bitter man who blames racism for his failures in life, and Viola is equally laudable as his dutiful wife, but it's too static and safe to be truly engrossing.

From the previews I assumed this was about a man who didn't want his son to play football and the reasons why, which it partly is about, but there's so much more to it then that. It reminds me a lot of A Raisin In The Sun, an angry black man mad at the world. A strong driven dialogue movie with standout performances from Denzel and Viola! A very good film !

Fences has wonderful characters and the performances to make them shine, but these two aspects, alone, don't create a totally enjoyable cinematic experience. Front and center is Troy, the powerhouse of a man who "gives all the good he can." This turns out to be not a whole lot of good, but a whole lot of talking.

First off: Davis and Washington act their asses off like their lives depended on it. Like, goldy-fuckity-marathon-acting type shit, if that wasn't something I just made up. Second up: Rest of the actors are kinda... okay, but meh by comparisson. Like, the entire movie is skewed to show just how good the leads are and the story, the pl.. no, I'm not gonna go into specifics- EVERYTHING suffers because of it. But congrats, Denzel, you made an actors showcase and Davis still came out better. Douche.

Great performances, but maybe it would have been better as a recording of the play rather than adapted to a movie? I found myself thinking I would quite enjoy seeing the play but never want to look at the movie again.
