(us) wrote: Lacking in story. Horrific cg. Motorcycle fight scene on roof top was maybe the worst and dumbest fight scene in history. Fight scenes in the last 1/3 of the film made film at minimum watchable. Classic example of how a poor budget can turn what should be a 5 star movie into a real crapper.

(mx) wrote: Not too bad, reasonably suspenseful, it moves along at a good pace, the acting is fine except the little boy (Toby) is unconvincing. Average, it belongs on the Lifetime channel.

This movie was OK, but I expected their to be more depth to the plot and the whole code concept. I'm not that big a fan of Danny Glover's acting, and his role here didn't convince me any more. Gene Hackman was solid as usual, but I've seen better from him. Overall, a flick you will watch and forget about, won't make any of my lists for sure.

(ag) wrote: You have to admire this film just for the character of Mona. She isn't your quirky, fun loving traveler of the road like many films have done before and since this was made. She doesn't compromise for anyone, she lives on her own terms and she doesn't care at all. Great touch by showing her life through flashbacks of the people she met along her journey. There is something holding me back from getting on her side and caring 100% like i should. It's not Agnes Varda's fault, i just have a hard time fully empathizing with characters like these, i'm weird.

(it) wrote: Who would have ever guessed that the creator of All in the Family could make a film as startlingly visual as this? The film is a social satire about a small town ehre almost everybody smokes trying to give it up for a month for the good of the community., only to choke the air with even more smoke by the end. This grabbed me from the very beginning and would not let go with it's frequent whip-pans and jaunty Randy Newman score (his very first). Surprisingly not very anti-smoking, but very anti-Big Tobacco.
