Shawnsaid on Saturday, January 22, 2011 2:00:22 AMThe acting alone perhaps makes this worth suffering through, and I do mean suffering through unless you are entertained by watching people destroy each other, which starts right from the very first scene when a mother is senselessly killed right in front of her daughter. Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan absolutely shine as the fathers that frankly I found more sympathetic than their children. Neither of the lead characters are ever very likable, which takes much of the joy out of the love story. And, of course, there is the ending, which I have to admit I am like Roeper and did not see coming. It is an emotional ending, to be sure, but I have to ask, what is the point? Other than some existential crap that life has no meaning and bad things happen for no reason, which I believe was already drilled home in the very first scene. Pointless story, but well-acted.

Amysaid on Thursday, June 24, 2010 12:16:10 PMHonestly, I don't think that Robert Pattinson will have much of an acting career after the Twilight series ends. I'm not the biggest Twilight fan either, so I'm in the minority. People are more attracted to Edward Cullen than Robert Pattinson. And another note, I don't think Pattinson is that good of an actor...
