    ★★½ Watched 30 Jan, 2016

    Significantly less clever than the other installments. The 5 year-old didn't care!

    It takes a great filmmaker to make your heart race when: 1) you know the ending because you read the book, 2) you know the ending because its obvious, and 3) you know the ending because the star is Matt Damon.

    Beautiful cinematography and solid performances all around.

    Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I am ASTOUNDED by the cinematography. I have no idea how this movie was assembled.

    The score was visceral. At times the hope was all consuming, and at other times the instrumentation was reduced to noise.

    The scientist in me had issue with plot points...but I really don't care. THIS is a film.

    A BEAUTIFUL film. I just have no nostalgia for the show. I know I watched it, but I couldn't tell you the plot of one episode. There were a bit too many double crosses and plot 'twists' for my taste, but a fun watch. The final race really had my hard pounding...that surprised even me!
