This film looked as if the director had been wearing boxing
gloves when he made it. There is nothing subtle about this film,
and twice I came very close to shouting, "Stop
shouting!" at the screen. It was only the possible irony of
the situation that restrained me. I tried to imagine what the
film makers were thinking -- "Jeff: you're holding
back.Give! Give!" And Bridges does give until it
My prime reason for going to this movie: Joan Cusack. She
plays "a conflicted woman who is the devoted wife of Oliver
Lang and mother of Brady, their son" (that's from the
official web site.) "Conflicted?" It would have been a
good thing if whoever wrote this copy had at least watched the
film. She was not conflicted at all.
May I save you from having to watch this clunker? Tim Robbins'
character is the bomber. Jeff Bridges' character finds
out, tries to tell the FBI, but they don't believe him. He is
blown up by a car bomb planted by Robbins' character. Darth Vader
is Luke's father, and Spock dies.
