The message is a needed one, but it should be delivered in a way that the people who need to receive it will want to come. The lead actor was good, and some of the supporting actors were okay, but there were a few who should find another line of work, if indeed this is their chosen career. The dialogue was lacking at times. It seemed as though they just couldn't figure out what they wanted to say. Some of the poor actors were left to their expressions rather than giving them any lines. And they didn't deliver those either.
I think it is a great idea, and you find yourself wanting to stand up in the theatre and say, "Yes! They are right. We are giving in, we are losing our freedoms one by one and we can't allow that to happen!" The bottom line is we need to take something away from this movie and do something. Go see the movie, encourage your friends to see it. You may at least get excited, leave the theatre and start getting involved. Let's encourage more movies like this.

Lately, if the critics say don't go, it is a must see for me. I am finding that the only thing that gets the high ratings of the critics is the over the moon sensational, sex laden, or bloody gore, or just plain stupid message movies. Why do they think that they know what's best. As I have watched the news lately it seems that the movies are definitely affecting the mentality of the world today as we watch husbands kill wives, kids kill parents, any controversy between people ends up in vlolent behavior. When something that gives a message of correct human behavior we call it corny or out of date... Let me be a critic for your movies, to give a balance to your advice.

I saw the movie yesterday and think it is one of if not the best movie ever made. I am currently in Afghanistan serving with the US Military and spend 27 years as a soldier. I find it funny when you read the critics reviews they total bash the movie and call it propaganda but yet one of the freedoms that has been eroding is the freedom of speech and our US military defend this and all the rest of our freedoms every day. I don’t think any of the critics even saw the movie. I am telling everyone in my family to go and see it.

Worth watching and it will make grown men cry! The story itself is true to life and while a few scenes were a bit "over-acted", non-the-less by the end of the movie you are rewarded with a sense of this story's importance for all of us as a nation of diverse and free people. A huge thank you to all of our troops who've sacrificed so much to ensure the freedom of every citizen.
