My First Impression Of Chaplin
14 October 2004 | by (Masontown, PA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie back in January of this year, around my high school's exam time.

I was stressed out, so I went looking for movies to watch on the Internet, and I came across this.

This was my first Chaplin film; indeed, this was my first silent film, and I must say it made a very good impression on me.

I'm more a fan of verbal comedy, but this was unexpectedly funny!

However, I thought the butt-kicking a bit incessant and found no humor in it.

Other than that, a hilarious film. I give it two thumbs up!
