Quotes

Meyer: Every once in a proverbial blue moon we stumble across an author who may verily change our lives. Someone from we know not where, perhaps even Dante's own paradise, who assembles the words that we must read and hear. None of your scribbler of syntax, but a heavenly scribe with powerful ideas. An absolute and true author. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Thomas Carter.

A decent semi mystery and revenge tale, but don't expect the 10 rating it has been given or you will be disappointed..
13 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Solid although not usually exceptional acting from the cast carries this movie well enough, while the performance by Forest Whitaker is quite strong (but I tend to expect that from him). He carries off the role he is given well, and elicits a fair bit of understanding from the viewer even though the role he plays is a hard one to make people sympathize with. The story is solid, and the ending is decent even though it is less realistic and more moralistic in motive. I don't rate it highly, but I do give it a true medium rating and would recommend it to anyone who just wants a movie to watch that will not leave them cold.
