Ripley's movie review

It's an ok movie. Not great, not terrible, just ok. Redford was so-so (keep your shirt on, man! you're getting old!), Gandolfini was much better. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to suspend disbelief quite as much as they wanted me to near the end. There was lots of action at that point but I couldn't help thinking, "and they did that... how?"

So, yeah, it's just ok. Don't rush out and rent it.

Newt's movie review

The outcome was obvious from the first ten minutes, and the first half was just arduous. The second half was definitely action packed but totally unbelievable. Don't go out of your way to catch this one.
