Tom Cruise may have the "worst-looking" Irish accent on the face of the planet, but it is undeniable that he and Nicole Kidman are sizzling on the silver screen together. Their intensity shines as well as their artistic ability to envelop a character and relate their thoughts to a viewer. Besides their very well done performance, the film is absolutely beautiful. Kudos to the set and costume designers that spent long hours on Far and Away. But he real story in this film is Ron Howard. It is simply a asthetic masterpiece. I spent most of my time wishing that he had just set his camera up on the prairie and filmed the grass growing. It was truly beautiful. Incidentally, sometimes one scene just makes a film. Brings it up from a good film into near 'masterpiece' status. This is one of those films. The music (the best soundtrack of the year thanks to Horner) combined with Ron Howard's vision made the "land race" scene of Far and Away and classic within itself. Put this scene up there with the chariot race in Ben Hur and the parting of the Red Sea in The Ten Commmandments, it is just that good. This is, far and away, one of the best films of the year.

Who will deny Ron Howard his due?Reviewed bykyle_793Vote: 7/10
I thought this movie was very well done. It is an overlooked treasure.Ron Howard is a great film maker and he deserves more credit for thisfilm. I'm a huge Ron Howard fan and I felt that this film was no betterthan any of his work done thus far. The dialog was a bit hard tounderstand, but the plot, acting and directing are what make the movieso great. Nicole Kidman is so beautiful in the movie and she reallycarries the movie with her charisma. Tom Cruise plays his part verywell. The scenery in the movie is some of the best I've ever seen. Itis easy to lose yourself in this movie. I would recommend this movie toanyone I know.
A truly brilliant film, this is Ron Howard's masterpiece. I never tire ofviewing Far and Away, and enjoy every moment each time I see it. This filmis admirable in several respects: 1)it shows how a romance can developover time, without the typical Hollywood touches of "whirlwind" happeningsand people hopping in the sack after only a couple of days (a la "Titanic"),2)Ron Howard captured the beauty of Ireland, the filth of a large city,and the expanse of the open prairie by resurrecting 70mm film - the colorsin this film are absolutely incredible, 3)a simple, character-driven storyis enhanced by the historical backdrop. In fact, there are manysimilarities between the romance in "Titanic" and in "Far and Away." Ifeel that the depiction in this film works much better than the other,mainly because of the plausibility factor (how many times would you runinto the same person on a huge ship?). We understand why Shannon wouldwant to take Joseph along with her. This is the opportunity she's beenwaiting for. Along the way, and through helping each other through toughcircumstances, they fall for each other. This is not some momentary crushthat will pass when the next good looking person walks by, we know thatthese two truly care for each other, and admire each other. Tom Cruise andNicole Kidman are perfect - one would think that they're both Irishnatives. If their marriage is anything like their relationship here, it isbound to last for some time. This is, hands down, Tom Cruise's best movieever. Here we don't see the typical cocky young man, but instead, a mandriven by passion and destiny to do what needs to be done. This isprobably much closer to the real Tom Cruise: Proud, without beingarrogant. This film remains on my list of all-time favorites, and I lookforward to seeing it on the large screen one day.
