First Class Film Making
16 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For the longest time I wanted to see this film but I never had the chance until this week: September 14th, 2007. I was kind of worried that too much time passed by since this film was done in 1995, and that maybe it wouldn't meet my expectations... And, oh, wow... What a surprise! What an awesome surprised! I am so very glad I had this chance showing me time doesn't matter when we talk about an entire team making true-pure-talented-gold. I was delighted. I felt good from head to toes... Yes, a great but total experience. So much I loved the film that I ordered a few copies for my families, friends and of course, for me. Never, but never I've seen and experienced such superb acting by Jerry O'Connell. I've seen him many times before but, if the audience wants to really know if this is a great actor or if this is just another one of them, here is your chance. I assure you this will be your chance but more than that, a total experience. Not just my admiration but also my hat off -way off- to a great, talented actor: Jerry O'Connell that took very seriously upon his shoulders his task as main protagonist. His supporters couldn't be better because this "team of actors" really showed their outstanding talents, such as Nick Stahl and our great Sam Elliott. The plot keeps you guessing and there's always a surprise and totally changes all of your assumptions. From beginning to end this is an amazing and so well executed film. And, when we talk about a good execution we must credit it to Director Larry Elikann; to its writers; sets are so very perfect!; the lighting that gives you that extra kick into your senses; the editing; and everyone else involved in this great cinema making. Fron its producers to all of his incredible and talented actors... I mean to the very last punctuation mark on the very last credit on your screen... Really. That is how good this film makes you feel.
