1 February 1999 | DadSweet
Weak acting + thin plot = expensive movie
Kostner gives a pretty flat performance in a movie with an absurd premise. His "character development" seemed limited to getting a girl pregnant (in this new world most males are sterile). He spends the rest of the movie referring to this woman as "weird" ... in pseudo-cool dude asides. Making it a perfect(ly awful) flick is the sucaryl sentimental ending dedicating a statue to the make believe postman who single-handedly saved American civilization.

Gimme a break!

Expensive glitz isn't better glitz.
