Continuity: Near the end, when Joe is in the submerged school bus the water is calm and the bubbles from his nose rise gracefully toward the surface. However, the bus is supposed to be in quickly moving rapids at the bottom of a waterfall. Visibility would be near zero, and he should be fighting the current (which he is not).See more »

Well acted and surprising, 22 May 2004
Author: potter-4 from ny

From the info on the DVD cover, I thought this was a going to be a science fiction/horror movie. I was pleasantly surprised at what this was actually about. The plot twist in the film is wonderful. Kevin Costner and the rest of the cast do a convincing and thoroughly enjoyable job with this unique premise. This film reminded me more of a "Field of Dreams" than a "Poltergeist" kind of movie. The cast is revealing. Ron Rifkin (Alias) was a great foil to Mr. Costner. Linda Hunt is perfect in the small role she plays. The director, Mr. Shadyac, seems to have broken out of the comedy mode (Liar, Liar; Ace Ventura) in a big and interesting way here. This is a good one to see if you aren't into horror movies and want something that stirs the little grey cells...I give it a 7 out of 10.
