Intriguing family film
25 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just purchased this off Amazon for an amazing price. I was really excited to see this because of Adam Baldwin and I was not disappointed with his role! I loved watching him out of his usual gruff and tough mode playing an enthusiastic and kind history teacher with slight PTSD from Vietnam and a sketchy past. He did a terrific job. Mid movie he gives an amazing speech to the class about Vietnam. The entire cast was good.

I did feel that the movie cut away from important scenes too fast, even though the clues to Liza's mystery become more and more obvious as the story progresses. I felt like I was walking in on a scene where the explanations were already given, so I had to rewind a few times to get the full brunt of them. And what I thought would be some very important turning points, were brushed right past.

The ending was a little disappointing. W/O giving a spoiler, I expected something more heartfelt, especially after the sweet and dramatic scene with actress Linsey Godfrey (Liza) and Adam. It could have ended right there. But I would have appreciated a certain conversation between Mr. Clemens and Liza, and a reunion of sorts, etc – Not the'Glee' or 'High School Musical.' But, to be fair, music ties in to the characters.

All in all this was enjoyable. There should be more family films made in this vein. If you are looking for a clean film with good values then you should watch it. And definitely check it out if you are a fan of Adam Baldwin!
