A solid no stars for this one! Consistently terrible in all areas from scripting to acting to direction and even the score was ridiculous.
Like a ham-off between a confused and unconvincing Samuel L. Jackson and a totally over the top Julianne Moore, for which character could be more schizoid, unpredictable and thoroughly unreal. Ron Eldard has a stinky hameo as some idiot brother that was a complete waste of film. Also appears to be where the cast of the best TV series ever made (The Wire) come to die a slow and embarrassing death by bringing nothing to a range of nobody roles.
Ably backed by a cliche-ridden script that stank like a 3 day old bowl of tripe with a grand sweeping cinematic score that must have been accidently introduced from a totally unrelated movie. Tries to be 5 different "issue" movies at once with the result being the total failure to represent ANY of it's issues clearly or convincingly. Doesn't even manage to be so bad that it garners sympathy, it just lies wallowing in it's absurd mediocrity until a "meaningful stare" ridden slow death.
Good movie, a bit slow at times. Thought it would be better with the actors in it.
Has some good parts but quite slow
Gripping stuff enriched by great acting from Samuel L Jackson and Julianne Moore. It's the best of seen of Julianne Moore, portraying the mother of missing child very well indeed. Jackson's intensity was powerful, as was the storyline.
I found this movie quite boring and I normally like the actors in it
An excellent movie with a great storyline and a superb cast, especially Samuel L Jackson. Crowd scenes were a bit noisy and sometimes hard to follow the flow, but well worth watching.
