Review: Dorian Gray

Dorian Gray is a gentlemen who inherited his uncles fortune and moved back into London after finishing his schooling and living outside of London for a bit. The beautiful specimen of a man in English times and the woman did love him, but he had an interesting twist to him, he never grew old and the secret was still ambiguous as to how it happened. I thought this movie would have a lot of action, mystery, as well as drama but it was a little too dramatic for my taste and not enough mystery and action. I remembered the name because he is the same character from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and so I had very high expectations but that wasn’t the case. It was a very good story but the two weren’t related as in the later he lived for hundreds of years and had a vampire for a lover but in this case the ending was slightly pathetic. I was hoping for more.

  1. The book is a masterpiece.

    I would mind watching the movie version just to look at Colin Firth’s face though.

  2. I think you missed the whole point when you started comparing an Oscar Wilde to a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Although I will say, apart from his charm and wit, he is an acquired taste.

    The book is awesome and I always knew there’d be a movie based on it.

    Dorian Gray should’ve been Johnny Depp.
