This movie is for the over 30 crowd. There is not enough action in it to hold interest for younger viewers. There is too much time spent in the movie with people running around and cursing one another. The actors try to do a good job, but with a bad script, it makes it difficult. The movie should not have spent so much time with the people running around trying to find the boy and condemning each other. More time should have been spent after finding the boy and contemplating what it meant to each of them (fewer supporting cast members). Loss of a child is more of a personal tragedy. The finding of the child did provide poignant moments. I would not watch this movie again, but I can understand how it might help those who have lost children knowing that others suffer as well. Bad things happen to good people. If movies can't entertain or teach, they should be able to help us somehow in our own lives. I give it 3 thumbs for those it might help.
