Brief Synopsis – An ex-con befriends a teenage boy and must decide how to be the best role model for him.
My Take on it – I have read a few positive reviews on this movie and was surprised that I personally didn’t enjoy it.
This movie was too slow moving for my taste and although I’ve read that this is one of Nicholas Cage’s best roles, I personally don’t find that to be the case.
None of the characters were likeable to me and I really didn’t care what would happen to any of them at any point and I only wanted this movie to end as soon as possible.
Basically, this wasn’t my kind of movie so I can’t recommend this one at all
Bottom Line – Very slow moving movie that I was quite bored with.
Rating – Razzie Worthy

One of my favorites of the year so far. Very gripping story, and at times, hard-to-watch, but Cage and Gordon Green make it great. Good review.
The performances were pretty good Dan, but I agree that it was not easy to watch.
Thanks for commenting
I keep hearing positive reviews on that I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy it. 😦
happens. That’s what I love about movies, everyone gets something different. sometimes good, sometimes not so good 🙂
Agreed that’s the fun part figuring out if you like it and if it is for you. 🙂
