“ Day 1- 1/1/2012

Didn't like this when I left the theater, but can't really stop thinking about it. Unnecessary violence and slick cinematography is not a replacement for a weak plot. Gosling was strong enough, but the writing was not. Great soundtrack makes it worth a viewing. Sad that this was my first film of 2012. ” - clarenceapplebottom

“ Day 11- 1/11/2012

Fantastic story of blind children in Tibet who start a journey to climb a peek in the shadow of Everest. Although this was a well made documentary, I feel that it could have been made into two different outstanding, and effective films. One about the condition of blind children in Tibet and the other about the climb. Combining the two felt disjointed at times. Overall a really interesting and heart warming story. ” - clarenceapplebottom

“ Day 24- 1/24/2012

I am really on a streak of great films, and this was no exception. This film should praised for what it is and what it was meant to be. The screenplay isn't fantastic (Chinese translation may have impacted this), but the action scenes, CGI, and action direction is fantastic. A John Woo great. ” - clarenceapplebottom

Director: Eric Bana
“ Day 25- 1/25/2012

The addition of Dr. Phil was a huge mistake. I really didn't understand why we needed a psychoanalysis of Bana's motivation and connection with the automobile. Felt really oddly placed. Eric, keep your therapy sessions between you and Phil!

Let me sum up the last 20 minutes: Boo Freakin Hoo! We truly have run out of problems in America.

I would suggest watching the documentary before this film. I can imagine that it would be confusing without some back story. The story is told from Jack's point of view, in which he begs the viewer to believe that he was "just doing his job". Interesting and unique perspective. You almost have sympathy for him...almost.
