I was fairly bored by it. The cast is fine, and the period detail sufficient, but it comes of as being pretentious, as if it's showing something we haven't seen before; we have. Human sexuality would be better served nearly a decade later with Masters of Sex.

Solid, but too slow and short. Much of the film's positives come from two knockout from the film's leads.

Tense and emotionally wrenching, Paul Greengrass crafts a powerful portrait of United Flight 93's heroic final moments. Be warned though, it's fairly difficult to watch, and if you do see it, once will likely be enough.

Looks good, and the cast is strong, but it just feels uninspired. It lacks a certain spark to keep it intriguing.

Strong directorial debut from Moverman, shining a light on a subject rarely given much attention. Great performances by Ben Foster, Woody Harrelson, Samantha Morton and various actors popping up in smaller roles as the grieving families of the deceased.

Good, but not quite the classic that it's been transcribed as. There's a fair amount of tension, and Cooper's Will Kane is the embodiment of a hero, but I thought the resolution was just too clean. Also, this maybe a situation where I've seen so many films mimicking this, the impact of it is diluted.

Pacing and perspective issues, this is a solid movie. McAvoy's fine here, but I wish we could've gotten more time with Whitaker, how gives a tremendous, terrifying performance as Idi Amin.

There's a very good, if not great movie in here somewhere. Unfortunately, the writing is pretty clichéd, and several of the actors are miscast. As it is, it's okay.

Stray Note: The Russian music that plays over several of the shoot-outs really comes off as cheap. Was there really not enough in the budget to add decent sound?
