  1. About overcoming adversity and one's innermost fears. On this count, Paxton hits the ball squarely in capturing the psychology of his characters, but hooks it into the sand trap of effects and thematic overselling.
  2. Actor-turned-helmer Bill Paxton has fashioned solid family entertainment in this well-cast feature.
