Great film!
27 October 2007 | by Jake143See all my reviews

Saw film at yesterday's theater opening and was very impressed! The cinematography and acting were what I would expect for a high budget Hollywood picture. The noir style lighting and atmosphere made the whole experience very believable. Pete Postelthwaite gives his usual amazing performance (he's got to be one of the best character actors in the biz!) and I thought Gabriel Mann did a fine job too....I'm sure we'll see lots of him in future films. I hope Valley gets a nationwide release so my friends and family in other cities can see it too! This is one film that needs to be seen on the big screen to be fully appreciated.
