User review:

Legedndary Filmmaker Barry Levinson’s ‘Sleepers’ is An Interesting Film to watch. Based on Lorenzo Carcaterra’s 1995 novel of the same name, this legal drama comes in-tact with skilled direction & proficient performances to lead it’s narrative.

After a prank goes disastrously wrong, a group of boys are sent to a detention center where they are brutalized, physically & mentally. Over 10 years later, they get their chance for revenge.

Barry Levinson’s Adpated Screenplay is Convincing. The film has interesting & absorbing moments in the first hour as well as in the second hour. However, the film gets too intense at times, and the faint-hearted are sure to shy away from those portions. Also, the film is very long. It definitely could’ve been trimmed. Levinson’s direction is skilled. Michael Ballhaus’s Cinematography is good. Editing is okay. Music by John Williams is impressive.

Performance-Wise: Kevin Bacon is effective as the bad guy. Dustin Hoffman is first-rate, while Bobby De Niro delivers a subdued performance. Brad Pitt is extremely natural. Jason Patric does well. Minnie Driver leaves a mark. Brad Renfro is passable. Others lend good support.

On the whole, ‘Sleepers’ is worth a watch, as it succeeds by holding your attention almost throughout. Thumbs Up!
