Daddy, what's the greatest thing you ever saw?
Greatest thing you ever saw. Umm. One time when I was a little boy, I was playing with my slingshot and I saw this Jaybird. I don't know why but I shot him.
You killed a birdie?
I didn't mean to. I don't even know why I shot at him, but I felt so bad, I started praying to God that he would come back. And all of a sudden the Jaybird woke up. He just flew away.
God saved him?
Yeah, I think so.

Sorry For The Cliché But........"Pleasantly Surprised"
My friend stumbled across this film on the net, and lent it to me on high recommendation. My friend and I really don't have similar tastes in movies though, so initially I was more skeptical than anything else about the film. As it turns out, I had nothing to worry about, The Lazarus Project is a legitimate sleeper.
The movie opens with a man named Ben (Paul Walker) and his wife and daughter at home. Ben has recently been released from prison after a fair amount of time served. The film then moves onto showing the audience how Ben is rehabilitated and trying to make a good life for his family and himself. I wont say anymore to spoil anything, but something quite unexpected takes place to shake up the plot, and from there, you're off. This movie has great cinematography for its settings and Paul Walker, though still in a normal Paul Walker role, does show some potential talent in every necessary scene.
All in all, if you have a means of seeing The Lazarus Project, I would also highly recommend it to you. Follow along throughout, and when the credits role, you too may have that feeling of an unexpected treat.
