"[spoiler] "If not love...then what?" [/spoiler] I welcome anything that Mel Gibson does, especially in this day of comic hero movies! I think the story is very well written. Acting is first rate as well, Mel Gibson and Sean Penn are both fantastic. Too bad that the lawsuit will dim the prospects of this movie most likely few people will see it and then they will be shocked on Oscar night. Typically, these biopics of sorts are dry and slow moving. This is not one of them. It's fast paced, good dialogue. Fair share of drama and English uptightness. Great movie!"

Teenagers might not find it so compelling but that's just a short time in their life when they're looking for total entertainment and action. This is not tha More

In all likelihood, you will leave this film with a little more of an understanding of how the dictionary came to be, and a little more resentment for Gibson (one of the producers) for pushing this project to happen, regardless of its lacklustre subject. It's pleasant enough, but it's clear England m More
