    I'm not a huge Kevin Costner fan and never have been, but even back in the day I enjoyed this movie. It's well written, acted and directed. Some of the scenes are a little over the top, but I think they work within the world that the movie creates.

    Man, I didn't expect too much from this film, but I was hoping for more than this.

    This movie is one of my favorites so a warning should be given. Gushing is going to!

    This movie has a brilliant cast. I'm not going to name all of them, but they're all fantastic. I will mention that this is the movie that brought both Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell and Justin Long to my attention. I also want to say that we all know Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver are great actors, but this movie reminds me of…
