Wild Bill kidnaps the two little girls in the middle of the night. However in another flashback to the day the girls were taken, it is in the evening when the mother realizes they are gone, meaning almost a whole day would have passed by before they were noticed missing. This seems odd considering how young they were that no one would have checked on them earlier in the day or noticed the blood and cut screen on the porch door. See more »
Having doubts about seeing this movie because of the length (3 hours can be death to a film).I was so surprised that I didn't look at my watch once throughout the whole movie. Tom Hanks, in my opinion, gave the performance of his career by bringing emotion and depth to his part. The only actor that bettered him was Michael Clarke Duncan. How he made this giant like character into a vulnerable pussycat was a marvel. On whole, the cast came together and gave the best performance I have seen in a movie for a long time. Not one of them let the side down by being weak. David Morse who is more known for his supporting roles was also excellent and hopefully not long till he's carrying his own movie. If you haven't seen this get it out now,forget about the running time and connections to 'The Shawshank Redemption' and enjoy it for what it is, a little miracle. 4 out of 5
