Tai is 17 years old. Naim is 20. She's Israeli. He's Palestinian. She lives in Jerusalem. He lives in Gaza. They were born in a land of scorched earth, where fathers bury their children. They must endure an explosive situation that is not of their choosing at an age where young people are falling in love and taking their place in adult life. A bottle thrown in the sea and a correspondence by email nurture the slender hope that their relationship might give them the strength to confront this harsh reality to grapple with it, and thereby ever so slightly change it. Only 60 miles separate them but how many bombings, check-points, sleepless nights and bloodstained days stand between them?

The film's structure reflects how much the lead character is disconnected, as she lives her life partially in the past when she was happiest. In the present, Laura is sleepwalking, passing as happy to everyone around her.[/font]

Alex H (fr) wrote: Though more of a remake of the 1953 film than an adaptation of the novel, War of the Worlds succeeds in the same way Signs does - its focus on its panicky, and startlingly realistic characters who run like ants around the monstrous alien menace. Everything feels genuine, even if it ultimately does fail as an adaptation.

The acting is praised as solid, but is ultimately unable to save the film.

Scotty W (es) wrote: Mel Gibson and Danny make for a damn good team in this '80s action classic. With its heavy (and heady) saxophone soundtrack and handheld-stylized camerawork, Lethal Weapon stands tall as a tribute to its time and the late-great stuntman Dar Robinson. It should be no surprise that Mel Gibson broke out big with the two-hand punch of Mad Max and Lethal Weapon; here, he again plays a police officer struggling with a deep personal loss, but this time with a charm and swagger that explodes onscreen.
