Alfie (Law) is a womaniser, hes used women all his life and doesn't know any different. He
can seduce any woman he wants and if at first he doesn't succeed he tries and tries again until he does. Alfie soon meets
his match though and is about to learn the hard way.
Alfie becomes a chauffeur
to a high class, rich society woman Liz (Sarandon). Soon the two of them start to use each other. Alfie wants Liz to sponsor
him and Liz wants a bit of fun to compensate for her old husband. The tables have been turned however and Liz becomes the
first woman to use him. She soon casts him aside for a male model.
Alfie is left devastated and
to try and win back some of his pride revisits some of his past conquests. WIll Alfie finally commit to one woman, continue
to chase Liz, or keep living the life of a bachelor?
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.
