Seventy-year-old Agnes takes the ashes of her dear Robert and travels to their regular holiday cottage on the Scottish island of Mull. On the way, two Dutch runaways, the ten-year-old girl Chris and her younger brother Tommie, sneak into her car. The children warn Agnes they will flee again if she calls the police. In the secluded house, beautifully located near a bay with a view of the sea, the elderly woman and the children gradually grow towards each other. Chris is confident and short-tempered, and dominates not only her younger, pigheaded brother, but also old Agnes, who loses herself in memories of Robert. Meanwhile, Agnes has to withstand the people who want to take over the house from her. The surroundings play a major role in this adaptation of Renate Dorrestein's novel about family, trust and secrets.

Who does not like Bruce Willis? I mean, he has done some movies I am not a fan of, but John McClane is his best character and this movie mostly shows that. He comes into the situation trying to find his son and figure out what has happened. Turns out, his son is a spy and they both have to work together in order to stop World War 3!! So I mean, he still acts as he has in the 4 other Die Hard movies!! He gives you that feeling of relating to him as a cop and as a father and that is why we love John McClane. Yes, he did become a big time super hero in the last film and this one but he is still the character that we all love. Rating 4/5 Jai Courtney does a great job as John McClane's son. He does not have a good relationship with his father and he does not want his father to help him on his mission. But they do work together because they have no choice, and through the film, his son begins to trust his father again and it shows that he does love his dad, but does not know how to show it. They both show great chemistry on screen together and you could believe that they could kick some butt together!! Rating 4/5 Now lets get into the directing, John Moore has had some bad films. The Omen remake and Flight of the Phoenix were just bad movies period! But I enjoyed the Max Payne movie and I thought Behind Enemy Lines was a good action flick with good sequences so he has done some good work. There is no question that this was his moment to shine and I think he did a good job, not a great job, but it was good. He did miss some mistakes that were made in the film, like when McClane swipes the card for the elevator scene, the card is not slided correctly and it shows. Also, when the main villain calls his daughter, the numbers are showing on the phone as to dial the number, so he could not be talking to her at all. That is not good editing, however, he did a great job with the action sequences and angles. True their was some CGI, but he mostly used practical effects and I am really glad he did. The last movie was too much CGI to me so they went old school and the car sequence was the best car chase I have ever seen!! Definitely worth watching. The feeling was very different then the previous installments, but I like that part of the movie because it was not the same as the others and it stands alone. I might be the only one that liked the shaky cam, but it made it feel real, so good job their Mr. Moore. Overall, could have done a few things better, but John Moore did a good job. Rating 3/5 for DirectingThe screenplay was the weakest area of the movie. I mean, a file as a big part of the premise!! You could do much better than that Skip Woods!! The villains were not very impressive. Given away to early in the movie and they should have had just one villain that got help along the way, but 4 main villains is to many and they were not very strong willed. They also lost some of the magic from the previous movies, good chemistry between Bruce and Jai, but McClane and Jack should have been banged up way more than they were so they have to be more realistic in the 6th movie if they make it. Rating for the villain and screenplay 0.5/5 To conclude this long review, I did enjoy this movie!! It did have some bad moments, and the plot was the weakest of all the die hard films!! The villains were also the weakest in the whole series. It is not up to par as the original, the third or fourth movies, but I do believe it beat Die Hard 2. Bruce will always be John McClane and he might be a super hero in this movie, but that character still is here so I do not mind that much if he is a super hero, especially after all he has been through with the past 4 movies. Jai Courtney was pretty good, so props to him. If you like hard core action with great effects and if you are a Die Hard fan, then see this movie because it really is a fun 98 minutes! Rating 3.5/5

Ross B (nl) wrote: Errol Morris directs this absolutely brilliant documentary that examines the costs of war through one of the most controversial Secretaries of Defense this country has ever seen. Robert S. McNamara served as Secretary of Defense under President Kennedy and later under President Johnson. He played a part in the dissolving of the Cuban Missile Crisis as well as the escalation and commencement of the Vietnam War. The film also delves into McNamara's early life and discusses his time in the army during WWII, where he helped plan the devastating bombings commenced by the US Air Force on Japan. McNamara discusses at times quite candidly the lessons that he learned from these decisions and tries to describe, as best as he can, the thought process that went behind these decisions at the time. Morris brilliantly makes his presence felt very sparsely throughout the documentary and rightly focuses it all on the brilliant and intriguing insights that come from McNamara. A supremely well crafted documentary that is a must watch for every American citizen to get a sense of the decision making tactics of our government. Morris is one of the best and he proves it once again here.

It's such a waste in that they could have all contributed to making this film so much more touching and authentic! Cinematography wasn't bad.

Simon D (ca) wrote: The only Rolling Stones film that I've seen that gives you a real insight into the myth of the band. I've read books so I had an idea but you somehow think that things were exagerrated. This film really tells all. I feel that some of the sex and drugs scenes were unnecessary, particularly as a lot of them only involved the entourage rather than a "Stone" in person, but I expect that they were the only scenes allowed to make the cut. This is a must watch for any stones fan, it's the only visual insight we have to the dark side of the band.

John W (ag) wrote: Of all of the accolades and accomplishments Metallica has achieved throughout their career, being one of the greatest risk takers in Rock history has to be the most unheralded. Obviously, when multiple risks are taken, some work (i.e, pioneering Thrash Metal, recording with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra) and some don't (i.e. the St. Anger album, recording with Lou Reed). "Through The Never" is an example of one of their risks that sort of worked. Since Metallica is arguably the greatest live band ever, they could've made a typical concert film and would've made their fans happy. However, since typical bores the band, they sought out to make a mark with this movie by having a scripted plot interwoven into the movie. As great as the concert footage is, the plot is equally as bad. The concert is a feast for not only the ears but the eyes as well. The band thoughtfully plays at least one song from every album they've ever recorded. This is an ode to their legions of true fans who rabidly know their entire anthology. If that weren't enough, Metallica spared no expense and drove their stage designers crazy (this is no joke, the designers have a show on AXS TV and their frustration was well documented on one of the episodes) and built one of the most innovative stages in history. The stage, coupled with the set list would've made any fan smile from ear to ear. Since the band's motto has been "What about the kids?" for decades, they wanted to give their fans even more, they also inserted a plot into the movie. Sadly, this was a poorly executed idea.The plot just made no sense. As if that weren't bad enough, it just got plain silly at the end. This left the viewer with the idea that the writers had painted themselves into a corner and couldn't go anywhere else with the story. The whole experience reminded me of Led Zeppelin's "The Song Remains The Same." Except, in this case, no one can blame the pharmaceutically induced 70's as the excuse for the strange plot. Finally, I also took off half of a star for the 3D. While the movie was visually stunning, 3D offered no enhancement of the experience.
