You know how too much of a good thing can be bad... personally that sums up this film for me. I adore Mia Wasikowska, love Michael Fassbender. And Jane Eyre is one of my all time favorite stories. I don't know why this didn't work... but wow. At least not for me.

In my humble opinion, I feel that Mia Wasikowska who was in "Alice in Wonderland" is not suitable for this Jane role. Her facial expression seems to show displeasure and fear when Jane is supposed to be expressionless and brave mixed with curiosity and adventurousness.

Also, too bad, the first half of the story development was not seamless. A few more minutes would have sufficed this.

It took me a couple times to get through this movie. I didn't really feel the connection between the them, they met and are in love all of a sudden? I felt like there were parts missing from the story.

This story was quite intriguing, I was thoroughly engaged by it. There were some parts where I did not undersatnd the quick transition from one scene to the next and there should have been more development of the love story between Jane and Rochestor. Overall it was a nice, and better than expected.

This version is like reading the cliff notes for Jane Eyre. It is a dumb down version of the movie. Dialog and acting very poor. Normally our teenage daughter will watch period movies we check out more than once. We watched this one last night and we both were very disappointed. All the previous Jane Eyre movies are much better than this one. We wouldn't give it a one star rating.

This is the second Jane Eyre I've seen, the other being the black and white with Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine in the lead roles. This version was excellent with Michael Fassbender playing Rochester and Mia Wasikowska as Jane Eyre. This is such a great story and the lead roles were great in both versions. Jane being quite quiet and reserved and Fassbender somewhat cold, lonely and distant.

I thought the movie was quite beautiful, but 2 hours just doesn't give Jane Eyre justice. Felt a little rushed and hard to see full connection between Jane and Rochester. The 2006 version has more of the story...

i loved this movie. i have watched the four hour version with Toby Stevens but i thought that in this version the casting and chemistry between the actors was better. I wish they had made this movie four hours long because i thought the romance part was a little rushed. But overall i really loved this movie the most out of all the Jane Eyre's. A definite must see.

Every scene of this film is like a painting. This is a breathtaking interpretation of Jane Eyre.

I didn't think I was going to like this version because both Edward and Jane are Hollywood pretty (not following the book) but the movie was excellent. Even though it was limited to two hours they did a very good job compacting the novel. And I did enjoy how they made the movie into a series of back-flashes, turning the plot into a semi-mystery.

Rochester: "Do you never laugh, Miss Eyre? Only rarely, perhaps. But you're not naturally austere, any more than I'm naturally vicious. I can see in you the glance of a curious sort of bird through the close-set bars of a cage, a vivid, restless, captive. Were it but free, it would soar, cloud high."

Rochester: "Were you happy when you painted these?" Jane Eyre: "Yes. To paint is one of the keenest pleasures I have ever known." Rochester: "Then your pleasures have been few. Are you satisfied with them?" Jane Eyre: "Far from it. I imagine things I'm powerless to execute."
