Rating of
2.5/4 

If Tom Brady and Brad Pitt had a love child, it would be Brad Davis. It's uncanny how much he looks like both of them, depending on the length of his hair. I'm probably rating this film a little low, but I just don't think that I could watch this again, which knocks it down a notch for me. Also, the acting wasn't great, with the exception of John Hurt, who was nominated for an Academy Award. Oliver Stone won his first of 3 Academy Awards for this film (he wrote the screenplay). This film isn't a "must see," but I think most film buffs would enjoy it.

Rating of
3/4 

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 0.5/1 + Good vs. Evil: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 = 7/10 or 70%. Midnight Express is an effective drama about being removed from one's naive elements. It begins as an action flick with drug smuggling, evolves into a political drama centering on trust and religious ethics, and dwelves into an essay on how mercy is tantamount to a country's greatness. The acting is respectable and the message harsh yet more neutral than expected: one does not need a rocket launcher to kill a butterfly.
