Our review

'American Beauty' is by no means a bad movie, but it hasn't held up particularly well. Considering it was the first feature film from Sam Mendes, it's miraculous that it turned out as good as it did. But compared to newer films from Mendes like 'Skyfall' and '1917', it's definitely not on the same level.
