I have watched many action movies but this one makes one think: what happens next? This material could have been handled badly, but it comes out refined and elegant.
Both Whitney Hustoun and Kevin Costner stay true to their types, yet sharing a common purpose giving a spiritual dimension to the movie as observed by a commentator.
This is not a conventional romantic movie and that is why many are disappointed. It is a throwback to old concepts of chivalry and knighthood. The remarkable point to observe is that it is a modern story about an independent woman and her child.
This is a movie which feels good and genuine in the end.
