Review
When i went to see Alfie i was expecting a lot and for me it didn't disappoint me. I happen to think Jude Law is very attractive and i was looking forward to seeing him portray such a definative character.
       Jude sure did do a brilliant job of recreating Michael Caine's role. He was charming, charismatic and cool. These aspects make him hugely attractive to the female roles in the movie and its no surprise they all fall for him. The female roles in the movie mainly Nia Long, Marisa Tomei and Jane Krakowski also stand out in there own separate ways and Sienna Miller is showing huge potential as being a huge star.
      However out of all the female roles Susan Sarandon is the strongest. She plays a female version of Alfie and has the job of dumping Jude Law for a younger model. She looks great in the movie and this kind of role is perfect for her.
    Overall i would recommend this movie. A lot of people were against the remake being done but be prepared to give this movie the chance it deserves.
 
Rating - 7.5/10
