Saw the preview for this movie at the theatre on the weekend. Seems like it has the chance to be one of the better war movies in a while. Very solid cast, a good director. The teaser trailer is definitely very well done.
Well, it is directed by Mendes who made the great American Beauty and the awful Road To Perdition so that's a crapshoot. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal who was great in Donnie Darko but was in the awful Day After Tomorrow.
BUT, Peter Saarsgard is in it and I have yet to see him in a bad film so there's hope. PLUS, Chris Cooper is in it. He too doesn't make bad films. If only Bryan Cox could be in it it would be a cinch.
