Malcolm McDowell steals the show
27 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is very well-polished film, perhaps too polished. The acting, writing, and production values are extremely well-done - this is a handsome film. But I wish the filmmakers had spent a tad more time on the 'inner' battle we face each day. How do you deal with 'revenge' for instance?

Malcolm ain't supposed to be the big attraction, but he can't help it, it just explodes out of him. Salute to you Malcolm McDowell, although it's never surprising that we see a magical performance coming from a master like you, but you totally blew me away with your performance. I can barely say that no other actor could possibly deliver what you managed to, not even half as good he performed not now, not before and its sure ain't happening in the future. McDowell really amazed me this time. He simply stole the show. But of course he would.

Back to the film: It's a little bit too polished up as I said. We are being spoon fed here. Thats what stops me from giving it a ten. But the message is good, very good and maybe society needs to be spoon fed to see these matters clearly. This is all about how materialism (who can forget the oil executive on the witness stand!) and how the devil can suck up your soul away from the precious, most precious things in life, namely God
