A ten in my books
A good film. In my set of values, it deserves a 10. Why? It has everything that a good film has to have: good story, motivation,good cinematography, good acting, great set with lots of action and of course, something that a lot of productions lack... moral.
Now: I love the story. Yes, it might not be told in the typical Hollywood style with a lot of CGI and explosions (don't expect the Fast and Furious saga - it wasn't made with that purpose), but it's exactly what you'd like to watch. A film that tells a story of redemption, of hope and freedom.
I have to say that I loved 3 characters: - the "uncle" played by John Schneider who did a beautiful job in making the character seem so real and so natural - the "patient" played by Gregory Alan Williams who made me smile the moment he open his mouth. He made me smile because the kindness and the wisdom was shining. Great character cover. I followed him throughout the film and every time when he was on screen I had a smile on my face... from various reasons - the "track guy" played by Mark Jeffrey Miller who fit those overalls not just with his physic but with his entire talent. Love how he nailed the accent and the looks
I will not say anything about the story because I want to let you enjoy it to the max, but there are a lot of elements that will jump at you from the dialogue and from the action.
Yes, could the film be made better? Yes, like any other film. You know how it is: every time when you finish something and you deliver you think of improvements. But, as I said: it's a 10 for me because it has all the elements a good film should have.
