A Murder Of Crows... I do not know about other people, but when I heard of a movie called A Murder Of Crows, I knew I needed to see it.

One of the things that I liked the most about this film, is that the name is almost perfect for it. There are movies, both good and bad, whose names have nothing to do with the movie, and it seems to be just the first thing that came into the creator of the movie's mind.

Cuba Gooding, Jr. is a great actor, I like all his films. Some sources of information said a few years ago that this person was one of the "Actors of the Future", and it was very right about that. All the movies where Gooding Jr. has participated in are good, or at least most of them, and he deserves credit for his skills.

Tom Berenger is also a good actor, not as good as Gooding Jr., but it's good.

The movie's script is excellent, the idea of the book thing... it was just perfect. The persons who wrote this movie have a very creative mind, and they did a very good job with this film, that even when it did not got all the recognition it deserved, and never got to be very popular, was great.

I'll rate it with a 8 out of 10, and that is because I have been rating a lot of movies with a 10 lately, because this movie deserves the best of the best.
