Don't underestimate this movie...
9 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some people will tell you this movie is not what they had expected but these are the same people who didn't get fight club. Just watch this movie and you'll understand..... The soundtrack throughout the movie does NOT distract you from the movie, hey maybe you were expecting THE English PATIENT#@$%, This is one of Ed Norton's finest performances. The side actors were very good as well but he really shines. Brian Cox does a fantastic job as his father. Without him, the movie wouldn't be told right. This is a movie that takes patience to understand. Not for anyone who wants to change the channel after the first 3 minutes.

Every man, woman and child should see the desert once in their life. That line just sticks to me so good that I wish every movie after that had a line like that. It's kind of like "Unfortunately no one can be told what the matrix is, you have to see it for yourself". Kind of like that, maybe I'm going too far.

But those who get this movie, it'll stay with you for a very long time, I promise you that. The ending alone is too good, forget about the mirror scene...
