  1. >My first reaction to seeing the ads for this film was that it besmirched the memory of JW. But I'll take your endorsement and try to keep and open mind about it.

  2. >Yes!I went to see it over the weekend and enjoyed it….lots of shooting but not so gratuitously gory as many films of the modern era. Story line was well told and the acting was solid. Themes of honor, redemption and fortitude all came together to make a very enjoyable film.KPN3%

  8. >Can't, in conscience, contribute to the coffers of Matt "commie bastard" Damon, but still love my old Duke Wayne version. Good plot… and if I recall, it was the only Academy Award that he ever won…
