Jewison's focus on the Canadians' dogged do-gooderism might have actually prevented a good movie from being a great one.
(Washington's is) an astonishing performance, partly because it's so devoid of histrionics, and it has Oscar nomination written all over it.
Both the movie and Denzel Washington are knockouts.
An expertly crafted, deeply moving film.
The dedication of the Canadian team strains belief at times, and for good reason.
Washington blows you away. To say he gives the performance of his career is an understatement.
In Washington's finely shaded performance he's a low-pressure system, illuminated by distant flashes of lightning.
One of year's most thought-provoking and soul-stirring films.
