This is one of those movies that has you wondering. What are you wondering? I really don't know. I was just kind of confused that there was a movie like this. It's refreshing that they kind of thought out of the box a little with this movie. I didn't know that this movie was based on a true story. It made it a lot better when it says at the end that both main characters died about the same time in real life. Coincidence? Maybe, but it helped the movie go out better at the end. Jeremy Irons definitely made this movie better than it was. It's nice to see him in a roll that you wouldn't expect him to do. 4/10
