The bad part is, Harlin's execution is just weak as it could be. It lacks of emotion and its dramatic effects, bad screenwriting actually ( I was thinking Micheal Bay all the time I'm watching it ). This might have it's good potential thinking its a war film in real life, well that's pretty cool. But then, if you want to watch more gun fight scenes and tank explosions on midnights. This might feed you.

Nathaniel S (gb) wrote: Before Sunset is the sequel to the compelling and terribly romantic Before Sunrise. To tell you the truth I did not expect the sequel to be as good as the original, and I based that assumption on the fact that the original was first and foremost a modern day classic, and the fact that sequels are generally not as good. However, there are always exceptions to the rule. I am not going to say that this film is better, but it is no worse either. It manages to equal it's predecessor perfectly and the best part is that it was 9 years since the first film was released and we are taken on a journey where we, like the characters, truly feel aged and more in tune with the world. The film Before Sunset takes place in Paris as the two lovers Jessie (Hawke) and Celine (Julie) reunite after Jessie finishes talking about his recent bestselling book 'This Time,' which is based on that magical night that he and Celine shared nine years ago in Vienna. This time he sees her smiling at him from the back of the store, and for a moment it is as if time had stopped. He later confessed that he wrote the book in the hopes that he would see her again. Well that book accomplished its primary goal. We are treated to a few questions about the book at the beginning and we get three different view points. The first is from a romantic sure that they would meet each other 6 months after their promise, the other a cynic who is sure that they didn't, and the last a middle man who wants to believe but knows that they more than likely didn't. Well sadly the cynic proved to be right initially; they did not meet. Although we learn that he did come to Vienna and she did not because of the death of her grandmother. Jessie shows no outward pain, but it is clear from the comments that he makes throughout the film that this had hurt him and haunted him for nine years. We catch up with their lives and initially they are talking about the better aspects of it as they talk about the normal topics that arise between a couple that is older: politics, their jobs, their relationships, kids, and we learn that Jessie is married with a son while Celine has a relationship with a photographer that is often gone. The whole place, like the previous film, is done in real time as they talk under the beautiful streets of Paris. This time though there is a sense of bitterness. They have aged and so have we. Whereas Vienna was practically a city of enchantment that night, Paris is like a wistful beauty that only symbolizes everything that they had missed those nine years and they are really just living in the past of what was so pure and beautiful and trying to get it back. In the previous film Before Sunrise, they are young twenty somethings that are really naive and excited talking about the grand future that they have prepared and why not? They have their whole lives ahead of them. Time flies and here they are at the age of thirty two and we learn that Celine is in a relationship that she is not really into as with all her other relationships, and Jessie is really in a loveless marriage and is staying only for the sake of his son. Their lives have not turned out the way they had planned and it all revolves around that one fateful night. They cannot shake off the feeling that they should have been together. The most powerful moment of the film is on the boat when Jessie finally lets it out with a pained smile full of agony and full of that "what if" asking her "Why couldn't you have been there?" He knows that things would have been different, but like Celine mentions it is better to not think about the past in that sense because that will bring nothing but pain. However, they cannot escape it and they know that a piece of them was left there that night. Perhaps all their romantic ideals were left in Vienna for nothing had captured their hearts before or since. Celine yells at him in the car that her problems in her love life are due to that night and her troubles have begun again because of that book. They are clearly in love and they are not changing that view point anytime soon. All of this leads up to an excellent ending that I will not disclose. This film's use of dialogue is again the focal point because that is all this film is: one giant conversation as Jessie and Celine catch up and fall in love all over again. This time the conversation is less youthful and less steeped with the romance of two young lovers. It is the conversation of a man and a woman who have experienced much in their near decade apart and have had their moments of pain and anguish while searching for meaning in their lives. The film has a somber tone to it, but it retains a hopefulness, or maybe it is just the after effects of a remembering something beautiful and letting the distant feeling of it take you just for a moment while you slowly comes to terms with the fact that it is the past and it is never coming back. Yes it is bitter sweet but that is the reality of it and it is a good reality because it holds not delusions of magic and unrealistic movie romance. It tries its best to make sure that the situations are believable and they do so almost too well. There is still that hope though. Still that connection and feeling that something can still happen at the right time if they just decide that they can give it a chance. However, at what cost? Before Sunset is one of the most romantic and well acted movies that have been released in the past twenty years. The team of Hawke and Delpy match that of a Gable/Leigh, a Bogart/Bergman, and a DiCaprio/Winslet. They are almost perfectly in sync with everything that is going on around them and they react to each other as if they had been doing this for decades. There is something sweet when the actors have a chemistry that strong and it shows on the screen. I think that it will someday be considered a true classic and even if there are those that have not seen it, when it is played years from now it will retain that freshness and still touch those that take a chance on small budgets films that are really diamonds. You just got to look hard enough.

Certainly a great love story in the backdrop of Iranian culture where a young guy has to fight constantly with the harsh rule against afghan immigrants and taboo against woman workers. The tension between the boy and girl to reach out for each other is depicted in style. This movie is universal in its nature of the message which simply says that Love defies all odds.

Robert B (kr) wrote: In the bible, you read the word "good" quite a bit, but never do we see "awesome" being used. That is because when the Bible was written, there was no such thing as Ninja Thunderbolt. I can tell you are wrinkling your nose in doubt right about now, so let me sum it up for you: Ninjas on roller-skates. The story follows a guy who seems to be a ninja, then there is a white guy who also is a Ninja, and over there we have some lady who is a ninja. It does not matter. All you need to know is that this is a movie where the word "ninja" is put next to another word that has nothing to do with ninjas or anything happening in the movie, and that is just fine. Also, for some reason there are sex scenes. I am not sure why, as they seemed terribly out of place, but nice I suppose. Most importantly, you must always remember and never forget: Ninjas on roller-skates. Amen.
