Ouch! I was extremly disappointed with this movie and how I was mislead by the other reviews. I'm sorry but Andie Macdowell's character is so unbelievable, even within the confines of the plot, ie,, it shows her relationship with Harrison (her husband) as being typical or maybe even a little troubled, then they suddenly have this heartfelt telepathic connection of undying love.Then she throws everyone along with her kids to the curb to go in search of Harrison. furthermore; somehow along the way she by chance bumps into friends from home on the tragic, gruesome, and suicidal warfront that they all decide to continue into the heart of the conflict where everyone is being killed onsight (except for them), I could go on and on but you get the picture, (pun intended). Brody's character is way over the top for no apparent reason, he is constantly emotional and angry with some type of "don't give a hoot" attitude, then suddenly morfs into some kamakazi compassionate martyr of sorts. The movie really builds too nowhere. I have grown fond of most of the cast over the years for their performances( just so you don't think it is some predisposed bias of mine) . You really have to blame the Directing and script for this " bomb". Strathaim does well as usual, but his character wasn't much of a challenge. I have rarely felt compelled to write a poor review, but this had too be done. Even if you just go with the "its a movie and imaginative" position. It's still not fluid and believable within it's own parameters. Don't watch this movie with any expectations and you might pull some kudos for the special effects, but the movie as a whole dumps so bad that you might even miss that. Sorry!
