    As it happens I watched it last night. It's superb even though it does tend to be a bit too sentemental in places. It's quite harrowing in places due to the material the whole film is about but is done very well imo. PQ and SQ is very good (on my kit) and the cinematoghraphy and direction worked well. Bruce does a good job with this one I give it 8/10:smashin:

    I liked it to.

    Monica Belluci is wow, and Bruce did a good job.

    8/10 as well is my rating.

    :oops: Very poor. Bad writing, too sentimental. The characters are cardboard thick.

    Something similar, but so much better is Soldier with Kurt Russell. Ok it is based in the future. Probably the most underrated film ever. Slammed by the critics, but it is truly superb.

    personally I'd say you've got those 2 the wrong way round, but that's just my opinion.
    Soldier's got to be one of the worst films I've seen. It's laughably bad from beginning to end, but at least they explain the woodenness of Kurt's performance:laugh:
    Tears Of The Sun, on the other hand, was rather good:smashin:

    They are certainly opposites when it comes to playing emotions under war-stress.

    Tears goes totally over the top, USA style. Very inconsistent.

    Soldier is consistent. A man whos emotions have been ripped from him since a child. Left more android than human.

    Most people struggle with Soldier (a modern Shane).

    I too think Soldier is one of the worst films of recent years.
    Laughable characterisation , boring hole ridden plot , rubbish cinematography , visual effects that wouldn't look out of place in a film from the mid 60s.

    I've seen more action packed episodes of Neighbours.
    I'd rather get my teeth drilled that sit through this drivel again.
