    Really?....Really?....A 55? This movie was bad. Simply very bad. It suffers from a sever pacing problem and Kinnear's character is an imbecile who's self destructive behavior only makes this underdog film feel bland. It's hard to feel bad for him when he behaves like such a greedy child.

  1. It's also solidly constructed throughout and the acting is impeccable. The problem is that it just lumbers along for two solid hours, never rising to any significant emotional or philosophical heights.

    Moderately inspiring in the way such true-life stories of "the indomitable human spirit" are always constructed to be.

    Greg Kinnear, usually kinetic, is unusually (and unbearably) dull.
