Great movie, a real tearjerker
6 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. The cast is excellent in this film. This film is very emotional. While I didn't necessarily like the way things may have turned out in the film in terms of the ending, it definitely left food for thought. There was an excellent use of foreshadowing in the writing, and all in all it really exposed a decent part of the human condition. My favorite actor, Costas Mandylor did an amazing job of playing a paralyzed cop and I believe this film showcased his versatile acting skills. I also liked his character as a whole because ultimately the character had a great sense of integrity and throughout the film the character also had genuine humanity. The rest of the actors as a whole also did an excellent job so I give props to the actors, the director, and the casting director on that one. Once again this film is very emotional, and I would even say it sent me on an emotional roller coaster. There were times of happiness in the film, as well as wonderment, drama, sadness, anger, and laughter. A really decent film for a TV movie, and one I would enjoy watching again.
