User Reviews

 
Jon Tenney's performance based on real life experience.
20 June 2006 | by Ogarcia2See all my reviews

I first heard of Jon Tenney when I saw him in Danielle Steet Novel titled "The Ring" I almost didn't finish watching it because it was so touching and emotional. The separation of families during a war is so devastating, but how they all came back together again was very inspiration. It's stories like "The ring" that we learn to appreciate what we have in this country. It was Jon Tenny's acting that kept me glued to my TV. My oldest daughter is Jon's age. I am so intrigued by our young people's response to such tragic stories. I can see how we gave our children too much and hindered their development. So I hope that Joh gets a lot more jobs in movies, TV would be so great because I am homebound as so are a lot of seniors in my area and these stories we connect with, Thank You so much!!
