  • Edward Norton.....I need say no more :)

  • Enjoyable. Its the sort of story of sacrifice, loyalty, service to humanity and stiff upper lip that we were once brought up on. Good to touch base. As good as its cover which summed it up.

  • Slow and predictable - couldn't make it to the long drawn out end
