Good Movie, Great Ending

7 years, 11 months ago at Aug 2 22:02

A solid movie from start to finish where an Amish boy witnesses a murder in the big city .. and higher-ups don't want this crime solved.

My favourite part was the ending. A man and a woman may have gone through something stressful and significant .. and even like each other. But that won't bridge the huge gap in their lives (a big-city cop and an Amish woman). They recognize this ... read more

"First viewing - May 7th It's a good thing Harrison Ford is so damn good in this movie, because otherwise I'd be pretty unimpressed. In weaker hands the movie would fall apart. The film starts out like it might be a police thriller, then detours into a forbidden romance film for most of the run-time before pulling both threads back together again. Ford & Kelly McGillis have good chemistry on screen, so the romantic elements work well enough. I liked the ways the film explores variations of witne"
