Since when did valor become politicized? I hate that politics have infiltrated just about every facet of our consciousness. Why can't a movie about doing the right thing be just that. Christ.

I propose that RT create a screener that deletes the reviews of and bans anyone who uses the terms liberal, conservative, republican, or democrat.

Obviously Owen never read the book or understands that this is a true story. I loved the book and look forward to seeing the movie without my political filter on!!!

conservative values? because liberals clearly are all anti-family, satan-worshiping scumbags, right?

I can only add a firm "amen" to the cooments already made. Clearly this jerk (polite word-family site) has to introduce politics into everything.

Politics? Where? Besides mentioning the word "liberal" a few times it was a regular Happy Hollywood film.
