This has gotta be one of the worst movies out there today. All the acting was wooden. Julia Stiles continues to be a marginal actress with a somewhat interesting face. Even Liev Schrieber was boring in this, opting to go the strong silent type. Things in the movie were poorly explained, and it just dragged on and on. With people saying "boobenhagen" all the time with a straight face, I couldn't take it. The little boy just gave mean looks sometimes. Julia just tried to make herself cry as much as possible. Liev just tried to look like he was trying not to cry. And Yes, we understand all the underlying theme of red, we don't need it in our face in improbable places. My god, even the blanket at a HOSPITAL bed was a blood red satin looking sheet. The devil boys scooter had red wheels and a red handle. The director was just punching you in the face with red, YES WE GET IT, MOVE ON.
