There's been a few films like this one recently. By that I mean ones with generic, meaningless names that do little to inspire interest, mainly because they tell you nothing about the film. Most of them are stupid action films whose directors seem to think that no one will notice the glaring absence of story or acting if they throw in enough explosions or fighting or something. However, this particular film, which came to me by way of a gift, could perhaps show me that I shouldn't be so judgemental. That said, there's not a great deal of plot here either but since it's based on a true story it's not their fault this time, and they've got a great cast to fall back on too. As is often the case, the emphasis is very much on the 'based on' part here but it's a story which was always going to be ripe for Hollywood treatment.
