This is the movie that changed my life. I saw it a few weeks ago and I am still in shock. The best part of the movie was the acting, but the best part of the movie was the story. If you don't like movies about a man who goes on a journey of self discovery and redemption and who helps others in need then this is not for you. If you want a movie that is not predictable and can be watched over and over again, then this is the movie for you.

After reading reviews here and elsewhere, I am curious to see how this film is received. It was directed by a woman (the same one who directed "The Trip" (2002), "Bitter Moon" (2007) and "The Last Year" (2009), and she is also one of the screenwriters. I don't know why there are so many negative comments. The film is certainly a difficult one to watch. The two main characters are desperate to find their way home after their planes crash and are unable to reach their destination. The main character is played by Antonio Banderas. He was in one of the last American films I watched, "I Am Sam" (2006), and I must say he was very good. The supporting cast is fantastic. They all do great in their roles. The cinematography and editing is perfect. The ending is tragic. It is heartbreaking. It is disturbing and even though it's not what I expected, it is not what I thought it would be. I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

A tragedy of the magnitude that one of the great wartime heros, Captain James Cook, who perished in 1770 while fighting in the American Revolution, would have lived an even greater tragedy if he had never seen the horrors of what happened to his men. The movie "Odyssey," based on the book by John Steinbeck, tells the story of the last year of his life in the 1780s. Cook and his crew were stranded on a small island in the North Pacific with no food, no water, and an all-too-small amount of guns. The only way to survive was to be brave, which Cook did. The movie is really well done. I do not think I have ever seen a movie that accurately portrayed the terrible events of the early years of the American Revolution. The scenes in the movie are almost as realistic as the real events, although I am sure they are more accurate than any other movie. The film is extremely well done and gives a very realistic view of the time period. The movie is truly a masterpiece. It's a very emotional story. I give this movie an 8 out of 10.

I was in the same boat as many people. Not a fan of the Vietnam war, but a fan of the film, (P.O.V. was that the only thing I had seen before). I just happened to be looking for some good, quality WWII movies, and found this one. My guess is, most people like this movie because they were able to see it at home, and understand it. Others may have seen it somewhere, but the DVD was too expensive to buy at the time. I can only recommend this movie, as a great movie, and very well worth seeing. What a sad ending, I feel sorry for all the soldiers that lost their lives. It's too bad, but hopefully, it will be some type of ending to these men.

A superb film about the impact of war on the mental health of the troops, the young and the old. Many of the soldiers returned from the war traumatized by the experience, and many had to deal with the psychological effects of their wounds. This film does a wonderful job of showing this through the stories of these young men, and their relationships with their fellow soldiers and their families. It is also a great movie for the veterans who have been through combat, for those who have had to deal with the psychological effects of combat, and for those who have had to deal with war-related trauma in their own lives. The soldiers in this film were all there at different points in their lives, and are all still dealing with the aftereffects of their experiences, and their memories. It is a wonderful film that will stay with you long after you have seen it. I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever been in the military or who has been wounded.

My girlfriend and I decided to watch this movie because of the incredible acting of it's main character (Rachel Weisz) and the fact that she was so beautiful, and beautiful and so beautiful. She is so beautiful in the movie. She was the life of this movie. I saw the movie twice and I am sure that I would love to see it again. I think that this movie was a great idea. It was a good movie that I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys movies that have an amazing story line.

I thought this movie was a good representation of what the real life of the Jewish people was like during WWII. I thought it was very accurate in that the movie depicted the experience of the Jewish people in the occupation. The movie also showed the Jewish people in a very different light than what was portrayed in the movies, which I thought was a good thing. I also thought that the actors did a good job portraying the characters. Overall I thought the movie was a good representation of what the real life of the Jewish people was like during WWII.

This film is a classic and is one of my all-time favorites. I enjoyed the adaptation of the novel. But it is not without its problems. I also disliked the ending, as well as some of the character's names. I feel as though the film could have been longer, as it is very slow in some spots. I will say that I liked the performances of the main characters. The German soldiers are excellent, and the French soldiers are also very good. I will say that the film does have some things that don't make sense, like the fact that there is a forest full of people in the middle of the French countryside. This would be impossible. I also didn't like the fact that the French soldiers were killed in the woods by the Germans, but the German soldiers were not. There are many more details I could mention, but I won't be able to for the rest of my review.

I can't put my finger on what the most important thing about this movie is, but it definitely is the acting. Its not exactly Oscar worthy, but if you're in a mood for some excellent acting, you should definitely check this movie out.

Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" (1960) and the somewhat more intriguing "Hector's Game" (1971) were, at least, somewhat better films than "The Possession". Both are, however, at least more watchable than the lackluster "The Exorcist". Not as compelling and engrossing as Bergman's, "The Exorcist" is less frightening, more repetitive, and, in many ways, more repetitious. The director could have given us something else, a film that he might have deemed "classy", but he chose to pass over the script and the screenplay altogether, taking what he had and directing us in. Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" is not one of the great movies of the 20th Century, but it is an interesting and effective film, and I recommend it for anyone who can get through the tedious "The Exorcist" and the stupendously bad "The Exorcist 2: The Heretic". I think I will watch "The Possession" again next year.

I never really knew much about the Holmby Park Massacre. It was a mass shooting by the Irish Republican Army in 1968. I only knew of the story because of my grandfather. That was before I saw the movie. I thought it was a great story of the Irish. I read the book and loved it. I would have to say that the movie did a good job of telling the story. It was well made, it was entertaining and it was interesting. The acting was good, especially by J.K. Simmons. I think this movie was a good one and should be seen by everyone. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.

This is a very good movie about the relationship between war and love. It's not one of those movies where you have to watch it to believe it. It's one of those movies where you have to believe it. It's a great story, that you will enjoy, and even like. The characters are believable, the story is interesting, and it's very funny. And, as it's a war movie, you can't help but to be moved by it. It's a movie that you'll love and that you'll be sad about. And if you don't like it, that's fine. But, I recommend it anyway.

I watched this film with my wife, who is a die hard war film buff, and I was impressed with the realism of the portrayals. This film is not just about war, it is a true story of a family. One of the things that made this film so effective was the fact that the main character and his wife were being treated as criminals by the soldiers who held them in the brig. One thing that is particularly important to me is that there were only two characters that seemed to be normal during the war. The father and the son. I would recommend this film to anyone who is interested in a realistic portrayal of war.

This movie is a great contribution to the history of war. It is a very emotional film that deals with the anguish of those who are fighting for their lives. The acting is excellent, especially for the main characters. It is a beautiful, dark film that shows the human condition and that war is never completely the end. The music is very good, as it is often the case in films of this genre. I recommend this film to anyone who likes a good, moving film.

Having only seen this film about a week ago I still haven't got around to writing a review, but I just had to say how much I enjoyed it. The cinematography is absolutely stunning, with the colours seeming to come alive in the film. The cast is great, with few names I'd know, but they all add something to the film and I really found myself caring about them. I loved the character of Cameron, and his journey through the film. This is a film you should definitely see. 9/10

I remember seeing this movie as a kid, and I loved it. Now, 15 years later, I have seen it again, and I have to say that it's even better than the first time. One of the things that makes this movie so great is that the viewer can feel like they are in the 1940's and also the young actors feel the same way. You really feel like you are in the 1940's, and this makes the movie more interesting than it was in the first time. Also, the movie is good for the teen/adult audience, since it's not too violent, and it's not too slow, so it's a great movie for all ages. There are some scenes that make the movie even more emotional, so I recommend this movie to anyone who is not really into history, and who doesn't want to spend a lot of time on history. I also recommend this movie to people who are fans of Lautner, since he is really good at acting, and he also does a good job at playing a different character. 9/10

This film tells the story of some very poor young men in London during World War II. They are being conscripted into the British army. But it is not really clear whether they have any intention of fighting, or what the purpose of the conscription is. They are told that they are being "forced to fight" but it is never specified as to whether they were forced to do so, or whether they were actually forced to do so. The film is based on the play "Leaving the Army" by Nicholas Sparks. It is not a particularly gripping film. It is more of a feel good movie. But the performances are good. The young men who play the men in the film are very good actors, and their characters are believable. The film is not really known outside the British Empire, and only a few people outside the British Empire know about it. But the film is very well acted, and it is well written. I would recommend it.

The movie is so powerful that I could feel my heart go through it. Every person, and especially every child should see it. There are some things that are not the way I would like to see it, but I believe it is still true to the events and what really happened. The movie also shows the little girl who was shot at the end, and her story of how she survived the bullet and where she got the courage to say "I'm a girl". There is some minor problems with the story line, but these are minor. For the most part, the movie is very accurate. I think the movie will make a big impact on the nation and society. I highly recommend it.

I really don't get what all the fuss is about. I had no idea what it was about when I first heard about it and was intrigued to see it and find out what it was about. I was disappointed. I wanted to love it, but I just didn't. I feel like this film would have been better with a director who knew what he was doing, who knew what he wanted to say, and who was more focused on the craft of filming and editing than the passion of telling a story. I understand that if he didn't want to be too deep or experimental, he could have made the film into a dreamy drama, or into a love story. But instead he decided to make a dreary, confusing, and contrived war film. I don't think I've ever been so disappointed in a film. I've seen two films I really like that have had the same director in the cast: "Life is Beautiful" and "Unbroken." The former is a great film. It's slow, but its beautifully filmed and compelling. The latter is a film about a love story that is so dark, so unredeeming, so hopeless and so human, that I found myself feeling sad for the people involved in the film, but also, I felt I wanted to support the love between the two leads, and that's not what I was seeing here. This film is not good. It's not good at all. It's not bad, it's just not good.

Some great military movie. Just when I had wanted to see a film about Vietnam war I came across this one. I was interested in watching it because I have seen a lot of movies about war and war movie and I am a big fan of the action genre. I watched it and it was a great movie, the performances were great and the story was great. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to watch a movie about Vietnam war. 8.5/10

Before I start talking about the movie, let me just say that I loved this movie. I went to the theater with high expectations and I left the theater with a great feeling about the movie. It has everything you could want in a movie: Beautiful photography, great characters, great plot, great music, great acting, great story. The only negative thing I can say about the movie is that it was a bit long. The movie doesn't really go all that deep into the war, but the first part is more or less like one of the previous Lord of the Rings movies. I don't know how much longer the movie would have been if it were longer, but I liked the beginning of the movie because it showed the perspective of the whole story, which I think is a really good thing to show. I can't give it a perfect score because of the length, but I can say that it's very well made and I would recommend it to anyone.

I thought this movie was great. The story, characters and characters that were portrayed in this movie were spot on. The idea of the movie was very original and it was well done. I found myself thinking "Well, this is a unique movie". Well done. I found myself saying "I'm not sure what this is about, but it sure is a unique movie". I thought the movie was well done, and it was a very well done movie. I really enjoyed this movie. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone that is interested in the Vietnam war.

This film is a true story of two brothers, who meet at a naval exercise, but their lives are radically changed when one of them is left in the middle of the ocean and never heard from again. The story is very heart wrenching and the performances are outstanding. The two brothers, who are otherwise twins, are played by the brother in the film and brother in real life, who worked with the brothers on the film. The film's music is also excellent, it is as if you are actually watching the film from a different person's perspective. The music makes you feel the story, and it is a very effective film. I highly recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a great film.
