The movie is pretty strange and most 'normal' viewers will not like it, but I enjoyed it for the novelty and a chance to see two actors (Yelchin and Stewart) in the early stages of their careers.

The movie started out slow for the first 1 1/2 hours(reminder, its about two hours long) and when it finally started to gain momentum, It sucked.

Normally, anything that keeps the beautiful Diane Lane on screen isn't a bad thing, but Finn is such an uninspiring main character that the story really needs to do as much with him as it can.

That first half of the movie is relatively entertaining.

Plus, the plots were very hard to follow.

Despite the fine performances, many scenes fall flat and slide into confusion.

The main story involves the family and it is very thought-provoking and entertaining story that involved the viewer in every scene.

Mildly entertaining .

Bottom line, if you are simply looking for escapist entertainment, skip this one, you will be bored.

I was stunned by how well made and how entertaining this wonderful little film was.

Basically, would you rather see a prosaic movie that can only be boring and unimaginative be as great as it can be or a daring movie with interesting ideas, that could be great, turn out to be mediocre at best?

She is breathtaking.

Maybe the original idea was good, but between a bad script and bad acting the movie became boring and empty.

I realize that that isn't necessarily very helpful, but you probably ought to be warned that this has been marketed as a comedy, and an enjoyable coming of age movie.

Intelligent and Enjoyable Movie .

Watched this because I'm a Kristen Stewart fan but it is worth watching otherwise.

If it wasn't for that, I would have found the film only mildly entertaining.

The film is enjoyable mainly because it has crisp intelligent dialog, superb acting and a story which takes unexpected turns.

) when they arrive Finn makes friends with Osbornes grandson Bryce, and has a coming of age with his new girlfriend, granddaughter Maya.

After he moves into the mansion, things get a bit confusing.

For this viewer that works well, but when the director elects to place tribal individuals in full regalia within the context of the Osborne estate, the concept feel contrived, as though the audience has to be forced to 'get it'.

The first half of Fierce People is a mildly amusing coming of age story.

My advise is don't waste 2 hours of your precious time.
