This is one long drawn dreary movie. Nothing in it could possibly ever happen in reality.
Harrison Ford gives his usual performance: he has two ways that he acts, either he speaks in a quiet monotone, or he sort of speaks up as if he’s getting after someone. That’s it other than that he just has a blank stare on his face. Emotionless! That sums up Harrison Ford‘s entire acting career. And it’s no different here.
Hey, he is madly in love? But no emotion! No passion! How did he become a film actor?
Christopher Plummer looks great does a superb job. It’s amazing how young he looked at this point. This guy took really good care of himself. It’s too bad he didn’t get a better script.
Ms. Down looks very nice. She acts with passion. She shows many appropriate emotions.
The film begins with our two stars interacting. There’s no character development. There is no reason for us to care about these people. It’s the same with their falling in love. There’s very little interaction. They just fall in love. We have to except that. There aren’t any reasons. What I’m trying to say is, this is not a well written script.
I would suggest that you pass over this film and find a true love story to watch. This is it really a love story, it’s not an adventure, I don’t think they knew what kind of film they were making. But I’ll tell you one thing this Story could never have happened.
Somebody spent $8 million to make this turkey. It only made $3 million. In Hollywood that’s what they call, or flop.
The DVD is professional. Very Good image and audio. Although all of the emotional orchestration tends to be twice as loud as the dialogue. At times they just turn it up very loud. That’s probably due to the fact that the story is dragging along so much.
I guess you can tell I really don’t like this movie Huh?
