I really liked this movie. The acting is top class all way around, especially from Blake Lively and Harrison Ford. A real power performance from the old man himself.
The movie has a narrator which is good at times, yet confusing and unneeded for most parts.
A movie from which you can tell most of the events by the summary and trailer, but thats not a bad thing. They come around the different dilemmas and emotions very well, and it is so well written that you can hardly complaint of having a general idea of the events.
The reason the movie only receives a six starred rating from me, is the ending. All to often in these modern days the endings are poor and this is no exception. I don't know if the directors or writers are afraid to make the unexpected endings or the unhappy endings, but it has become a problem. Take the ending away and make a new one, i'd probably have rated it eight.
This being said, i am high likely overreacting a bit because of my general disappointment in endings. This is a movie worth watching and it does make an emotional impact. Well written and well performed.
