    this film is deep!
    it has one of the strongest roles for a Black woman I've seen in years.

    has anyone seen it?

    I saw it...and perhaps I was expecting something else from the reviews of it.Now don't get me wrong I enjoyed the film,but apparently not as much as some some televison and magazine viewers.

    However that one particular scene at the end of the film kinda stayed in my mind and made a lasting impression....it was worth the ticket price overall.

    I love most films Denzel is in.....some just more than others.

    I seen the orginal and the remake.

    This movie was more than deep it was possible. Think about the Reagan administration. In the beginning Bush and Reagan were running against eachother then Bush join him as his running mate. Hmmmm. An actor that mostly played action heroes or cowboys or patriots in his movies chooses a decorated retired Naval pilot/intellegence officer and formal head of the CIA as his running mate or was he chosen for him. Anyway I also liked the movies score by Wycliff Jean. I thought the movie was very good. Denzels best work of late still is Training Day and Out of Time was pretty good too.


    Peace

    the concept of the movie is not as far fetched as one may think...
    brainwashing has been going on for quite some time...
    and the way george w acts...a group of dyslexic hillbillies must have gotten to him....smh
    great flick though...

    one love
