Good Movie But too Long..
10 October 2003 | by (Blytheville, AR USA) – See all my reviews

I liked the way this movie showed a father's love. And the kids were great actors, It showed Jon Voight in his good looking days and the countries that they went to were awesome. But no offense but the movie is a little bit two long and it might want to make you want to watch something else.. I had to watch it in 2 parts on Showtime.. but it is a good movie nonetheless. and the ending? well i'm not going to spoil it for you but you have to see for yourself why i comment on it so. my rating for this movie I give it a 6.. it would have gotten an 8 but it is kind of slow..
