Movie Reviews

  • worthwhile experience, at least one time around, but it's mostly memorable for its little treasures
    3.5 of 5 by Christopher Null [Filmcritic.com ]
  • too laborious for an action film and too brutal to be an inspirational tale
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • The movie is essentially a Western, with old-fashioned shootouts and barroom brawls interrupted by telling details of a global disaste
