Goofs

At around 54 Minutes into the Film, Michael Shannons character Cpt. Beatty speaks to his men with a megaphone. This scene is completely mirrored, as Beattys Leathercoat has his Button Row now on the left side, and the 451 on the Fire-Truck is mirrored, too. See more »

Quotes

Clarisse McClellan: Who do I always make you nervous?
Guy Montag: You don't.
Clarisse McClellan: When I see you burning up Eel's lives, you don't look nervous.
Guy Montag: That's because I'm very good at my job.
Clarisse McClellan: Hmm. Have you ever thought, even for one second, why you do what you do? You should try reading before burning.

The Weight Of Fire
20 May 2018 | by pauletterich-laSee all my reviews

I've seen Truffaut's version from the 60's two or three times even if it wasn't perfect for a great admirer of the book but it had Oskar Werner and Julie Christie and Cyril Cusack and a phenomenal score by Bernard Herrmann. This 2018 version has an interesting production design but the the actual center of this warning tale is completely lost. The pacing is infuriating and Michael Shannon as good as he is, he's becoming the go to guy to play the bad guy. Here everything is on the nose and by the numbers. So, disappointed. Michael B Jordan has amazing eyes but I wish he can find a great actor's director. He certainly deserve it.
