A great cast makes for a cool movie.
24 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I've watched it twice already. The whole cast is superb. I especially liked Esti Ginzburg. the whole movie could've just been about her character and that would've been fine. I hope that she is in more movies. Chace Crawford was excellent as well. This is one of the best movies that Joel Schumacher has directed in the last ten years.The cast was very hip, with great dialog. It reminded me of another movie that I liked very much, that was Little Athens. Twelve is one of the most underrated movies Curtis of 2010.Curtis 50cent Jackson was very good, as Emily Meade. Kiefer Sutherland did a very good job with the narration. Sometimes narration can be annoying, but in this case it helps keep the story moving. Emma Roberts was very good, she certainly has a bright future in the movies. I haven't read the book that the movie was based on, but I would like to now. If you like movies that are cool and hip then check this movie out for sure.
