It is extremely hard to find the right balance when an actor is playing someone that has a mental disability and overall I thought they took it a bit too far with the character's simple mindedness and child like desires. But, that's Tom Cruise for you.

This is a simply brilliant movie. The way the two brothers were able to become close given such a difficult situation is very touching. Hoffman's performance was magnificent as playing the role of someone with severe autism like this would be very difficult. Cruise's performance was also good, an excellant complement to Hoffman. They were also able to effectively add humor to the movie, a difficult task in a movie such as this. Great film!

Boasts two strong lead performances dragged through dull travel montages. Can you believe Hans Zimmer wrote that corny world music? There seems to be a hint at child abuse connecting the brothers' idiosyncrasies - both are emotionally stunted, obsessive, verbose, and prone to outburst. But Charlie remains exploitative far too long for their eventual connection to feel genuine, as the train leaves I get the sense that he's already planning on squeezing his brother for more money somehow.

A deeply unpleasant movie that asks you to identify with the frustration of a sociopathic narcissist who only discovers empathy after learning how to exploit his brother for financial gain. On the one hand, it's a brutally honest comment on how social stigmas associated with mental health operate in a high-powered, capitalist society, and on the other hand, it's pretty disturbingly rendered. I'm not sure formula-driven melodrama is the most nuanced medium to be able to strike the right balance.

Rain Man is just one of those movies that, for whatever reason, is fantastic. The acting is superb but not much else is identifiably great. That being said, it's still a wonderful movie and it's one I will cherish personally my whole life.

This has got to be one of those films that gives contemporary actors the idea that "stunt acting" will get you all the awards and accolades they have sought all their careers. We are supposed to believe that this is a worthy film because of all the research that director Levinson, writer Bass and actor Hoffman put into; because in the end autistic Raymond isn't "cured" but his yuppie brother is. This movie is peddling in unearned sentimentalist eighties kitsch and I am not buying.

Honestly, I hated the first half of this film. I understand the role of Cruise's character in the beginning, I know that he is supposed to be the stuck up, yuppy, selfish prick -- but he played asshole to the extreme to where I almost stopped watching. This movie was incredible beginning with the explanation of the name Rain Man in the shitty hotel room all the way through the mediocre ending. Hoffman really was amazing and overall this film was pretty solid.

Standard fare about a protagonist's journey from self-absorbed materialist to responsible family man, elevated to a strong drama thanks to added autism. A lot has been said about the magnificence of Hoffman's performance, and I shan't detract from that, just note that Tom Cruise also deserves praise. Having to play off Hoffman, Cruise still manages to instil enough presence into every scene to make the movie about his character, which helps make the setup feel perfectly authentic. A good film.

This film is all about the performances, even if Hoffman's could be deemed exploitative. Worth a watch, but severely overrated and one of the worst Oscar Best Picture winners.

I really liked this story and how Charlie Babbit develops his character and his relationship with Raymond throughout the course of the movie. I've never known anyone with autism or any other developmental disorder, so it was eye-opening for me to see how it might be to live with someone who has it: extremely stressful at times, but also endearing. The pace of the movie was kind of slow for me, and I couldn't stand most of the soundtrack and score, but I guess that's the 80's for you.

incredible performance by hoffman, i was at the point where, when i didn't think about it, felt like that's how he really is all the time. valeria golino is always a treat. nothing against nuance and subtlety, but where the hell is tom cruise's arc? it's more like a straight line with the occasional bump. i guess the rest is left to the viewer, but from my personal experience he visits ray once or twice, and then goes back to being a dick who cheats people professionally.

Cruise and Hoffman, despite the former's 21st century social alienation, showcase why they're considered to be among the best actors of all time. Films about mentally challenged people almost always fall into mawkish territory, but Rain Man, thankfully, avoids this. There is not much to criticize, really. Great performances, a good script, and memorable scenes all accumulate to a solid 7 out of 10.

Just beautiful. People are looking for action, special effects and a thrilling end nowadays. This film has none of that all, but offers so much more than that. We get a clear look in the life of Raymond and we really get to understand and feel his problems. You are just dragged into the story and it feels like you experience everything yourself. Great piece of moviemaking. Wonderfull acting, great directing.

Hoffman is fantastic. It's easy to see the awkward energy of Ben Braddock, but there's clearly a lot more going on here. He's cute, funny, and ultimately very touching. Oscar seems over-eager to hand out golden tickets to actors who play handicapped characters when the nods are unworthy. Not here, not this one. I thought I had the plot pegged half-way through, but all does not turn out as planned, and I liked the movie all the more for it. A feel-good classic, and with good reason.

Maybe this movie is not accurate in medical or psychological terms but it nevertheless brought autism to the public, therefore aone it receives high credit from me. Besides, the dramatical acting of Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise is so good that the audience is gripped until the end. The great score by Hans Zimmer adds the rest.

There are some touching moments, but honestly I was pretty bored especially during the first half or so. The acting is quite good and the second half is definitely, definitely better. In the end I am glad to have seen this film because the second half is good drama, but at the same time the first hour or so annoyed me quite a bit. Don't think I'll ever want to rewatch.
