Well done but terribly depressing.
this movie put together a mass of data to support an argument that i have been making for a long time, i.e. that industrial food production, esp of cattle and cattle products is a (actually, according to the film, the) leading contributor to global warming. i think the movie was deficient in one regard, a regard which most movies about global warming fail in that they do not address the fact that we, the consumers of gas & oil and of beef, eggs & dairy products, are not willing to change our ways. we demand cheap gas & oil for our multiple vehicles; we demand cheap goods; we consume massive amounts of meat, fish, poultry, eggs and other foods that depend on huge quantities of water, insecticides, land & fossil fuel to raise and transport to our markets. no politician who wanted to be elected (or environmental group that wanted to stay in business) could ever tell the truth. as pogo said: "we have met the enemy & he is us.
the movie reinforces the despair i feel as i look at the state of the earth. i believe we are finished. i am not alone. The Nobel laureate, Dr. Frank Fenner, predicted in 2010 that humans would be extinct in 100 years. i think it will be less.
thus this movie leads me to the conclusion that i should not let my concern for the environment override my desire to live my remaining years to the fullest. i recycle, have energy & water saver appliances, don't own a car and don't eat red meat. but i am not going to stop flying or eating free range (when i can get it) poultry and eggs.
Misbilled. NOT A Mystery/Thriller.
This movie is an anti-abortion fantasy piece. The acting was terrible. The story was disjointed and did not hang together even in the context of its "look what would have been" evangelical message. John Schneider was particularly bad--stilted and wooden.
It was pretty apparent early on that there was something weird going on in this movie, and I don't mean the Superman Sam action. It was set in a small Texas town but though there were drunks and promiscuous women, the F word never once passed anyone's lips. The hero, a big aw shucks kind of guy who is pure in heart and mind sees a woman riding in a Mercedes with her hair blowing in the wind and is instantly smitten with her. He has eyes for no one else despite the fact that many women are lusting for him and she is a spoiled rich drunk. The worst person in the movie was a knife-loving homicidal maniac from guess where? You got it, New York City.
I think the user reviews will tend to break down along ideological lines although I saw one that thought the story & message engaging while agreeing with me about the disjointed nature of the film. Putting aside my disagreement with the movie's ideology, it was aesthetically a badly made and badly acted film.
I wasted $8.50 (I'm a senior who went to a neighborhood theater) and a nice Sunday afternoon. Don't make the same mistake.
