Newt's movie review

It's a movie about autism starring Hughes (who was really sensational in the role) and relying on Willis and a Baldwin to make it profitable. Some of the effects were exceptional (like the train scene) but the movie just became ridiculous after a while. There's no need to bother making time for this one.
