    Honestly i think that Jolie it's a great model I've tried very hard to see her as an actress but her performances are just BAD I could think of a dozen better actress for this roll, it is a good attempt to represent the overseas world and way of life but the story surrounding Jolie's character it's very unnecessary.

    The romance in the movie is so cliché and banal, it almost hurts. The actors (who otherwise can act) are very wooden and lifeless. The movie simplifies every theme it want the viewer to be concerned about. Not recommended.

  1. Even assuming the best possible motives by its makers, Beyond Borders runs the risk of making human suffering exotic while glamorizing white disaster relief workers in the Third World.

    Star-driven, high-minded claptrap that, fatally, can't even rig a rooting interest in its central love story.

    As kitsch, however, it's pretty enjoyable. Jolie and Owen perform with such conviction, and the film -- blissfully unaware of its own badness -- takes its paperback-romance shenanigans with such goofy gravity, that it's easy to get caught up in the whole, soap-opera thrust of the thing.
