  • Well I thought this movie was pretty good. I didn’t see the hidden plot until it was revealed sneakily at the end. I was totally convinced of the overlying plot. This was a typical Ashley Judd movie. It was suspenseful, dramatic and in the begininning very romantic. James Caviezel was excellent in this film. He proved himself as an real actor to me. I have found that his work in other movies (Frequency and Angel Eyes) was not as significant(dramatic) even though he was the leading man. I actually believed he was the loving husband he was portraying. The plot line gave a confusing twist to the story, because the hidden plot was portrayed by other actors as being a setup. So even though I liked the movie in the end I started to think about it and I was confused about how the movie ended and why it ended the way it did. I heard that the end credits then shed light on the “inconsistencies.”

    Well I did learn a couple of things from this film. It did reveal some truths about the Government and Military and how they operate. It kind of makes you wonder….. !
