Goofs

After Jones follows the hawk back to his family he sits on the ground talking to Maggie. The wind blows Jones' hair and doesn't mess up Maggie's hair even though they are a few feet from each other. When the wind blows, Jones' extension clips can be seen and his "real" hair blows above his head, as it is much shorter than the extensions. See more »

Quotes

Samuel Jones: You take this money for your children.
Maggie Gilkeson: No, you take it for your funeral.

Alternate Versions

Although the film was shot in the Super 35 process, the Full Screen DVD mostly version Pans and Scans as if it were shot in Anamorphic Widescreen instead of properly framing it for Full Frame as most Super 35 films are. Only a few shots in this movie were reframed properly. See more »

A film of extreme realism and compelling scenes w/the just the right touch of "on the edge of your seat" excitement!
24 April 2004 | by cdmarquezSee all my reviews

I thought the juxtaposition of good vs evil was used very cleverly by Ron Howard in this movie. The filming was extremely realistic and the action was compelling. There were several "slow" moments but these were made up for by the realism of the entire movie. Cate Blanchett and Tommy Lee Jones and the SUPERB acting jobs they did definitely carried the film. The role of "Dot" was also extremely well portrayed.
