This movie erupts a devastating bluntness that effortlessly shatters everyone!! Coming to grips with the fact that your life is not the way it is suppose to be, has Charlton Heston and Jessica Walters in a permanent state of flux!! The movie audience cannot always empathize with the idea that the main characters in the movie are the culprits, but, often times, this is the case!! The term "Has Been" is now as crippling as the term "Never Will Be"!!! Relationships and infidelity end at sexual consummation or boredom, and reveille with candor and fate are the real punishments for everyone in this film!!
This movie was extremely realistic and the acting was effective!! Many issues that Charlton Heston struggled with will never be solved.. His character is such whereby he knows his days as a professional football player are over, but he cannot accept this at all!! That being said, he concocts a myriad of reasons as to why his life no longer makes sense!! This movie is excellent because it portrays human inadequacy in a way a lot of films do not!! Experimentation with what might remedy everybody's arctic desolation becomes relegated to one morally impervious endeavor after the next! Unfortunately, this happens a lot more than we would like to think!! A composite rude awakening with bitter reality pursuant to the future is the instrument that makes this movie powerful!! I give it a thumbs up!!
