Sails the same route as dozens of Hollywood psychiatry dramas...Its power lies in the rich themes and performances.

The most remarkable thing about Antwone Fisher is the real-life story on which it is based.

Soupy and sentimental, but with an underlying belief in itself that keeps the rhythm constant and just about manages to reach the gut.

For his directorial debut, Denzel Washington (has made) a haunting and resonant film covered with a potent Southern Gothic chill.

...so positively heartwarming, the main character so well drawn, and the drama so involving, none of the film's imperfections seem very important.

Washington is customarily solid as the naval shrink, but directs without imagination or flair, sticking to Hollywood conventions and skimming over the harsher aspects of Fisher's life.

When the tears start coming, they're not jerked from you -- they're honestly earned, and they're a both a relief and, yes, an affirmation.

Washington's compassion as an actor comes through in his directing, as he gives his movie the time and space to let the characters breathe.

Admittedly moving and even occasionally uplifting, "Fisher" just seems like a film road well-traveled so many other times.
