  • Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks and an interesting script. But I think they could have done more with all this. Some parts are really boring, and there is not a lot to happen. They missed a chance to make a very good movie. Positive is the performance of Thomas Horn, but that was not enough to bring it to another level…

It’s a simple story with a lot of heart, obviously any film that involved 9/11 is going to be a massive tearjerker and this is just that.

    It’s a slow burner as the first half tries to find its feet, the child, while he has his issues of course can come across really irritating and can take away from the film, however
