Excellent sound design. The draw backs are that the pacing is a bit slow for most people and the low budget can kind of make the production feel like a made for TV film. It shares a trait with Haruki Murakami novels in that the stories told within the story are better than the overarching plot.

Using the Democratic Party as a platform, Primary Colors is a satirical political dramedy about the inner workings of a candidacy. There are obvious links to the Bill Clinton presidential run in 1992 and with Hilary Clinton looking like a viable candidate for 2016 the film takes on a new relevance. Two other films mentioned in recent reviews touch upon similar topics: the documentary The War Room (1993, Chris Hegedus) and the political thriller The Ides of March (2011, George Clooney). It is suggested that audiences watch these films as well. Primary Colors is unique in that it uses a comedic angle to critique American politics. It is also refreshing that the film stays within one political party and one election - the primary election, or the election which decides who will be chosen as a certain political party's candidate for the general presidential election between the major political parties. The film contains a fantastic hook at the beginning with an adult literacy meeting (just watch and listen). However, the film runs long and gets very drama-laden and melodramatic towards the end. It abandons its light-hearted feel, which is a mistake that leaves viewers wondering what happened to the funny satire. Mike Nichols is a great director whose credits include Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966), The Graduate (1967), and more recently Charlie Wilson's War (2007); but Nichols piles on too much final act melodrama for Primary Colors to be considered a great movie. Nevertheless, Billy Bob Thornton and Kathy Bates make the film very watchable in key supporting roles. Adrian Lester who plays the idealistic aide is also very good (he should be more active in today's cinema). Emma Thompson is memorable, but not realistic as the long-suffering wife of John Travolta's philandering politician. Travolta is riding the crest of a late-nineties career upswing since 1994's Pulp Fiction directed by Quinton Tarantino put him back on the Hollywood playing field; it would unfortunately be a short-lived winning streak for Travolta who would later sink back into the Hollywood doldrums with his epic box-office bomb Battlefield Earth (2000, Roger Christian). Finally, honorable mention goes to Larry Hagman as the reluctant rival candidate; Hagman makes everything he's in better.

It likely earns some bonus points from me due to how few decent viking movies there are out there, and also how few movies with good use of throwing knives in combat. The cinematography and scenery are gorgeous, the acting decent enough and the action choreography is fairly unique. The characterization is a bit weak as each of the characters is largely defined by their motivations rather than any personality, but the actors manage to make the best of things nonetheless. Well worth seeking out when you feel the need for viking. Mmhmm.
