Canadian Connection: Actor Brendan Fraser
and director Paul Haggis
The movie was just ok. I`m shocked that it won best picture. It basically just throws some situations at you, without really being creative with it. There`s no attempt to be subtle about anything, it`s all just thrown at you with no intelligence behind it. The movie doesn`t let you think about anything, it`s all pretty much force-fed. And basically all of the characters/situations have been done a million times before. Nothing new here really. The only part I really liked was the hispanic guy and his little girl. The scene where he gives her his "cape" is very touching. That scene gets 5 stars, the movie gets 3.
