Andy Siems’s review:
This is obviously a re-watch as I am showing the kids. Man, what a great film. This is a super hero in the real world. M. Night was still very hot when this was made and I still consider it his best.. or at least my favorite. Bruce Willis and Sam Jackson are just at the top of their game, even though this is a very subdued and quiet film. LOVE James Newton Howard's score for this. I consider this one of the best "super hero" films ever, if not then at least one of the best origin stories. Sure it's not DC or Marvel, but there is a reason for that as M. Night was trying to point out that those books are exaggerated reality.. the "reality" of the characters in the film. Love this film HUGE.
