Great emotional movie... not a great Chef Movie
Verified purchase
This movie is panned by "Chef" movie enthusiasts constantly... I am a chef and I love this movie... because it is NOT a "Chef" movie.. its a redemption story... Bradley Coopers character is recovering from alcohol and drug addiction issues. It's NOT about cooking. It is dramatic, emotional, and has a great story arc. Adam Jones a once world-renowned Michelin star chef is broke, alone, and in self-imposed exile after destroying his life, career, and the life and careers of those closest to him. As with many on the road to recovery, once back in the world, he realizes time and life have moved on without him, he is no longer on the cutting edge... he has become a relic in the food world. The story is about his path to redemption, his fight to stay sober, and to work his steps by facing his demons and working his eighth step. (look it up if you don't know) if you know what that is... WATCH THIS MOVIE. Can Adam Jones stay sober, make amends for his past, and get his life in order in the very environment that allowed him to go off the rails, to begin with? An engaging and enjoyable movie. Sienna Miller is also fantastic in a strong supporting role. I highly recommend it. I cannot pass by this movie whenever it is on.

As some who's worked in fine-dining, this movie does a great job...

I've worked at one of the best restaurants in my city, one that chased two Michelin stars, with Chefs and cooks who've worked at 3-star restaurants in France. This movie captures the stress and the drama, but as well as the joy and the passion, of being a culinarian. Though I'd like to think that the Stars are just a bonus, there's always a commitment to service, to quality and excellence, and to providing an impeccable and sublime experience. And it is true that working in kitchens like these can be toxic, the lifestyle can destroy cooks' lives, there can also be that sweet spot where there is that rewarding happiness in being in an amazing kitchen. This movie tells a great story and tells it in a great way, with an adequate touch of humanity and drama. Bradley does an amazing job, very convincing as a classically trained chef.

Fresh from the .. ashes ... There can be Redemption

So this is my second time seeing this movie .. I saw it on HBO ... then I decided should it ever return to a member premium service.. I would watch it again. Very pleased that it was on Prime and that is one of the benefit's of having an account with Amazon. You can pick and choose what you want over basic cable and television. There are some who liked this feature and there are other's who did not..? I feel that it takes a village of artisans to deliver the goods when producing , directing and starring in a movie. I am pleased with the actor's such as Bradley Cooper,Sienna Miller,Daniel Bruhl,Matthew Rhys,Uma Thurman,Emma Thompson and Omar Sy . Great locations,kitchens and staging ! Kept me entertained .

"Burnt" out on dumb "Chef" movies??? This is for you! Outstanding drama with great acting and perfect settings. Would love more focus on the meals/recipes/techniques but I'm probably in the minority there. They paint a very accurate picture of what life is like in Michelin aspiring restaurants. Outside of BC, the cast is fantastic. As an avid sous-vider, I did take umbrage with a few water bath-related jokes in the film. Overall - outstanding though.

This movie - and this sexy cast - gets better every time I watch it! 5 Freaking stars.

So, I remember laughing at the trailer. "A film about a chef like he's a rockstar! Hilarious." Little did I know 4.5 years later I would be sorta addicted to the film. I am a national emmy winning writer producer. And when I watch this film - I see the artistry in the filmmaking. The locations, the acting, the score, the edits, the camera movement, the foreshadowing... not to mention the cast. Uma Thurman, Alicia Vikander, Sienna Miller, Lily James, Bradley Cooper, Omar Sy, Daniel Bruh, Matthew Rhys. This is a stellar cast. Everyone brings it. The score is fabulous. The locations of posh London. The tactile pleasures. Its a fantastic film - and I was a shortsighted fool laughing at it.

A True Chef

This movie was fabulous. Real look into the workings of a Chef and his staff, the trials, hours, and hard work they have to do. Great performance by all. Bradley made me believe he was a Chef. He was excellent in this role.

Burnt to perfection!

I just watched this movie last night and absolutely loved it! Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller do another great job together. This movie is about a young teenager (Adam Jones) who succeeded early in life and had everything he could ask for, but unfortunately he fell in a bad way and lost everything. After several years of soul searching Adam finally realizes that he wants to get back to his old self and wants to get a 3 star restaurant and have the best restaurant in the world. Can he do it or will his past catch up with him? I don't want to say anymore because I would just spoil the rest of this movie. I guarantee you this is a good movie though. The cast is great and some of the stuff said throughout this movie is just absolutely hilarious! I highly recommend this movie to everybody who likes a dramedy.

Whats not to like

Bradley cooper, what's not to like, he acting is so dynamic, so passionate, really feels like his a chef if you didn't know! Definitely good acting from his part, the different cultural mix also is a winner, but just to show persistence and perseverance goes a long way especially is you passionate about something and don't be afraid of constructive criticism!
