(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)
Pra quem já não viu, vale a pena.
Conceptually this was an interesting movie. I liked the idea of unlocking the human potential would lead to unexplainable "powers", I even don't mind the conclusion. Yes, it kind of feels a bit of a let down that they the powers that be chose the less controversial path instead of going the Sci-Fi route, but it's understandable. The cast was alright, Robert Duvall (who plays Doc) was the best and gave the most wonderful performance in the film followed closely by the talented Forest Whitaker, who was quite adorable in this movie. Watching Brent Spiner outside ST:TNG is always a treat. John Travolta was alright and Kyra Sedgwick was okay but their on-screen chemistry wasn't explosive-- maybe if someone else played opposite one or the other or if the two lead roles were cast different altogether this film could have been more dynamic; but as it stands, it was just alright, a little boring, a bit too cutesy. There was so much potential to this film but fell short of meeting it, this could have been so much more compelling.
and a great story all in all.
