I have no idea how this is so lowly rated or not more widely seen. An excellent movie, start to finish. Recommend.

I don't know if Edward Norton was playing somebody with little to no education or a criminal mastermind.Alot of this movie had me wondering what it was really about.It just seemed to be all over the place & the ending especially had me thinking WTF!

A great movie with great acting. It kept me hanging on from start to finish. De Niro was great as always and played his role perfectly. I thought Milla Jonovich showed a tremendous talent in her role and her sex scences with De Niro were well done and very sensual. Edward Norton played a different role that I seen him in before and was good but was surpassed by the other actors Jonovich and De Niro. Overall a worth seeing movie that if watched with your spouse will probably get you laid after watching the sex scenes. B+

Jack and Madylyn have been married for more than 40 years. Gerald "Stone" Creeson is interviewed by Jack and gets enraged. Lucetta does what she can for her husbands release. The idea of Norton as a prisoner with an accent is ludicrous, that's his curse for being sensational in American History X. De Niro as a disgruntled old man doesn't require much from him while Jovovich just needs to act sexy and seductive for her role. Talents of the two gentlemen were certainly wasted on the incompetent script despite its positive intent. There were instances when it felt too preachy and moments some scenes felt missing (what happened to Lucetta and Stone after being released, no conversations the last time Stone and Jack encounter each other, etc.). It has however a few insightful lines …
