A good movie in all aspects
24 February 2009 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

WHile the movie itself is depressing, the setting certainly looks like an abandoned wasteland, the movie was good.

The movie was great in fact.

All characters were believable and their performances were outstanding.

Charlize blows me away all the time and after seeing this, I am just amazed at how great she is as a performer.

All the cast was good - Woody is such a versatile performer. Good, bad, crazy, brave - this guy has great range.

Saskatchewan where I had lived very briefly is as depressing as it is shown here.

WHomever did chose the locations, certainly knew how to make Saskatchewan look even worse than it is.

With great camera work, great performances - it's just a solid film.

Not my favorite. Never will be,but just good in it's own ways.

Charlize has such a beautiful face, even when she has swollen eyes, she still looks amazing.
