    Endless and boring, a good hour could have cut and it wouldn't matter. I have seen all this SO many times before. It is so cliche ridden it is ridiculous. The acting and the story are way too melodramatic.Totally predictable.

  1. Thanks to a rock-solid performance by Dennis Quaid, nice historical touches and energetic direction by Gary Fleder, the tried-and-true formula is given a welcome shot of adrenaline.

    Crowdpleasing and oh-so-predictable.

    Like all formulaic biopics, The Express sacrifices the details for the Big Picture--hagiography without the humanity.
