Newt's movie review

I thought Harry Connick Jr. was just going to be window dressing but he actually did a fine job. The entire cast did, really. There were certain moments of levity that could only be pulled off by great talent and they showed here. The movie itself wasn't all that spectacular and was rather light on historic detail, but the comraderie came through well.

It's an OK movie but certainly nothing great. I can't really recommend it because it lacks substance, but it's a feel-good movie with some tense moments, good acting and some good action shots. You could certainly do a lot worse.
