I'm not a movie critic, just an ordinary person who loves sitting in a dark theater and letting the magic take over. I Saw The Light was pure magic. Tom Huddleston, whom I'd never heard of before, was perfect for the role of Hank Williams. He took me back in time and let me see the pain and suffering the icon faced daily. Hank's was a tortured soul and maybe that contributed to his greatness. Huddleston captured that and pulled back the curtain, letting us see inside the man. I think Huddleston did an excellent job with not only the songs his voice was flawless but with the <more>
exact mannerisms and nuances of Hank Williams. I thank him for doing such an awesome job and for a short time whisked me back so I could once again enjoy the icon's music. It was difficult to keep my feet still because I wanted to get up and dance. This was a great movie and I hope to see Tom Huddleston in other roles.
Don't read the film critics. Watch and listen with your heart. Tom Hiddleston is an amazing actor. WOW and I bet Hank Williams was saying from heaven. "Yup, Tom you sure got that right. Nope that ain't quite how I did that, but I am proud I'm of yaboy! I say great job, Tom. BRAVO!
The 10 is for Tom Hiddleston's acting and singing (by cborisonsmith)
I am older and Hank was gone by the time I was born. I warned there were spoilers, but anyone who knows anything about Hank, already knows about his drinking problems and the problems with his personal life. I gave the movie a 10 because I thought Tom Hiddleston did a fantastic job and had Hank's moves down pat. I thought his singing was great. I was very disappointed that I Saw the Light and I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry was not included in the soundtrack since Tom had especially done a great job with the latter. I thought Elizabeth did a great job as Audrey. I do realize there were <more>
issues with the screenplay, but I thought in general, it gave the viewers an idea of who Hank was. My in-laws saw him in person and I was introduced to his music when I moved here with my husband. It was quite a shock coming from New Orleans.
I Saw The Light: An intimate experience of Hank Williams (by peemmza)
I've got to hand it to director Mark Abraham. All the things he got right in "I Saw The Light" were far more impactful than things he missed. After reading other reviews I thought I was going to come away from the movie unsatisfied, but instead it was the opposite. I really like that this movie was a more subdued and intimate look at Hank Williams. It's not fast paced or a high frequency drama. It's an intimate peak into the personal side of Hank during the last 5-6 years of his life with singing performances speckled throughout. The acting performances are fantastic <more>
especially Tom Hiddleston who transforms himself into Hank beautifully and does a fine job singing Hank's songs.Many of the complaints of the film were from people who wanted to see the historical Hank Williams film. The whole boilerplate biopic from childhood to all the milestones of his rise to stardom and the impact he had on American music. People wanted to know why Hank was the way he was and did the things he did. Yet conflicted, talented artists tend to always defy being wrapped up into nice, little 120 minute boxes with definitive explanations supplied. With that in mind Abraham did the next best thing and what was always his intention, created and showed a personal experience of Hank. To have the audience feel what it was like to be in his life. In that endeavor the director got it right many times over. By casting Hiddleston to play such a complex and conflicted person, it humanizes Hank and makes him relatable. Tom's performance allows people to have an endearing empathy and compassion for Hank and see this troubled cultural hero from a personal perspective.Although there's a lot the director left out or only made reference to, the main problem with the film is in the weaving of all the many relationships and chapters of Hank's tumultuous life into a cohesive harmony. Still "I Saw The Light" delivers an insightful and engaging experience of the great country star that we have never seen before and with a masterly produced soundtrack that sets the tone and carries you through this little beauty of a film.
Well done biography type picture that told the rise and fall of a country legend who went quick at a young age. (by blanbrn)
Growing up I was more familiar with Hank Williams Jr. and his music still I heard stories about the life and hard times of his legendary dad Hank Sr. and how that his life was short and tragic. With this film a biography typed called "I Saw the Light" a hit Williams song it's very informative and interesting as it shows the rise and complex life of a man who battled the bottle and women which all lead to his tragic young end.Tom Hiddleston is in top form as the country legend he plays Hank to near perfection from his accent to his posture and movements and actually does a pretty <more>
good job singing Hank Williams songs. The film just really is a chapter by chapter turn in the life of the country western music legend showing his rise to fame sadly the fame was mixed with man problems like failed marriages and many different lady friends and Hank had plenty of kids with different mothers as they gave birth to them out of wedlock. And his biggest inner personal demons was his battle with the bottle, it's clear the sorrow and sadness of Hank's short life was fueled by alcohol and whiskey. Overall well done film that shed light on the tragic life of a young legend.
You don't need to like country western music. (by HoosierBob)
Hank Williams was one of those talents who just seem to come along ever so often from "out of nowhere" and becomes a legend in his own time. Hank was a candle that burnt out quickly but only leaving behind great music, which was later recorded by just about every big name in the music business of the sixties and seventies, anyway.I am a sucker for true stories and "time pieces" so this was a film I wanted to see as soon as I saw an advert for it, even though I did not like country western in the days Mr Williams was still alive. Hank Williams is however a major reason I <more>
started listening to country western, and the lead actor Tim Hiddleston looks like Hank and portrays him as accurately as I suspect anybody could without making him look "cardboard".The music is played throughout the film and the scenery was well researched. Don't look for any out of era vehicles, I don't think you will find any. The film is best for an adult crowd for the language used in the film, but if you can see this for the great film I think it is, you will enjoy it.If this film is not Oscar material...nothing is of late.
Well worth watching for Hank fans (by avakay-98287)
I watched this movie yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. It is hard to turn your eyes away from the screen. I had to remind myself that I was not watching the real Hank Williams...Hiddleston is that good in the part. His movements as he sang were just like Hank. He sounded good, too. Hard to believe he was actually singing and talking like Hank...and Tom is a Brit. I also liked the slower pace of the movie...gave me a chance to feel Hank's back pain, love, loss, alcoholism. The 40s-50s time period was a treat to watch along with all the old recording equipment. I especially enjoyed <more>
seeing the vintage kitchen...even had the long sink/counter that people would take with them when they moved in those days. After I watched this movie, I got out my old Hank albums and listened again. So good and gone way too soon.
