    Envokes emotion, and shows the reality of what is going on in other countries and no one cares.

  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.
