Jonathan Rhys Meyers
When his mentor is taken captive by a disgraced Arab sheik, a killer-for-hire is forced into action. His mission: kill three members of Britain's elite Special Air Service responsible for the death of his sons.
The Boys Are Back is a confessional tale of fatherhood. It follows a witty, wisecracking, action-oriented sportswriter who, in the wake of his wife's death, finds himself in a sudden, stultifying state of single parenthood. Joe Warr throws himself into the only child-rearing philosophy he thinks has a shot at bringing joy back into their lives: "just says yes." Raising two boys - a curious six year-old and a rebel teen from a previous marriage -- in a household devoid of feminine influence, and with a lack of rules, life becomes exuberant, instinctual, reckless... and on the constant verge of disaster. The three multi-generational boys of the Warr household, father and sons alike, must each find their own way, however tenuous, to grow up. Written by

It's Hallmark Movie Channel meets Lifetime Movie Channel
It's just so uninteresting. While watching the movie, all I could think of was "Poor Clive Owen. Stuck in this awful mess." He was supposed to be this tyrant of a father, yet I never saw any proof of this. The only way you would know he was mean was because other character kept telling him so. I felt like the scenes where he was so mean and nasty were left on the cutting room floor, and we were left with a sanitized version. I felt like I had seen this movie on Lifetime or Hallmark Hall of Fame. Or perhaps they blended the two together and came up with this. Commercials would have made a huge improvement.
It was choppy and uneven in most places, and yet, occasionally there would be a wonderful scene that was stuck in now and then. The movie did have some beautiful scenery and cinematography of Australia.
