Good, but not great. Had tons of potential but pulls its punches and falls back on cliches. Plot is a bit choppy and uneven too - too many blind alleys, when the writer and director should be concentrating on more profound statements.
I would have expected much better from director Mike Nichols and writer JJ Abrams. Still, fairly moving and interesting.
Great performance by Harrison Ford in the lead role. Good support from Annette Bening.
