Great look at the consequences of inaction
30 October 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I think this movie is an excellent explorations about the consequences about this man pretending that the problems of others are not his, and being too cowardly to step forward.

It loses points because some aspects are over dramatized (for example the court room scene) and a few plot holes. However if you take it for what it is, a movie exploring this concept, then it is excellent. Sure, the story is far-fetched in how everything goes wrong. However the obvious parallels between the situation on the train, and his sons problem are a great way to explore the situation. His response in both situations is lacking, he puffs himself up and blusters up to resolve things, but at crunch time is found woefully lacking because he doesn't have the courage or energy to ensure that the situation is correctly resolved.

In the end, his search to ease his guilt brings him right around in a full circle, and the parallels between the cause of his problems, and the solution, is obvious.

I wish more could see this movie and this scenario exploring apathy to others problems.
