(ru) wrote: Very powerful and plausible, Swank and Blethyn paint a picture of grief and loss that acts as a bridge to the feelings of the many African mothers who lose their children to this preventable disease. Both dramatically convincing and emotionally moving.
(kr) wrote: A confident salesman ask a psychic to read his future: he is only going to live until the first snow. Very often, movies that are centered around a person that is going to die soon show how the person is trying to enjoy the remaining time with family and friends. With lots of crying and nostalgia. This film shows that dark side of the certainty you're going to die. The overall cold mood is perfectly underlined by the surrounding desert. Guy Pearce is the perfect lead role for this one. He perfectly shows the emotional conflict within Jimmy Sparks: is it all true or bogus? Instead of concentrating on the beautiful things in life, Jimmy can't accept the prediction and tries to fight against it. Yet, he ends up just walking further towards his death. The path is quite frightening. Accompanied by questions of fate and destiny, vulnerability and doubts, the consequences of one's actions. I really loved it. It hit unexpectedly and hard.
(de) wrote: Not a war film per say but a film about war. Saving Private Ryan before Saving Private Ryan. But better. Lower production values don't hinder this film at all. Great script. Great plot. Great execution. Gritty presentation. Complex and nuanced look at war not often seen in film. A more balanced slice of war than the overtly overly-patriotic films most commonly made and it makes for fantastic viewing. Dave's character arc is enigmatic and compelling and forces a personal vestment in the picture instead of just watching the battles unfold. Easily one of my favorite war films.

(us) wrote: Dull and criminally un-scary. I have no idea what happened, here, considering this film's predecessor, while not a masterpiece, was at least a workmanlike horror flick. This is just rubbish.

(gb) wrote: This film isn't just a simple cat-and-mouse chase, it's more complicated and interesting than that. This film showed me Leonardo Dicaprio's astounding acting, Steven Spielberg's interesting and "fun" direction, and ithis film have also tought me a lesson or two. This isn't Spielberg's best, but it's damn well pretty close to it.
