Standard stuff lifted by surprisingly subtle acting
I didn't fancy this film but was recommended it and the first half
truly surprised me. It starts out somewhat low key and the the way the
relationship between Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning is built up
is very well handled and believably done. Great acting by both, and
Fanning in particular: she can pull off cute without being schmaltzy or
annoying, whilst also coming across as genuine. A big future awaits...
However, from the turning point half way through it descends into
formulaic Hollywood 'must kill the nasty Mexicans!' revenge stuff, and
has been done better in other films. Overall worth seeing for some
excellent acting and some touching moments before the guns start firing
and the bombs start going off..

TOO MUCH artsy-craftsy photography!
I still think it's a good movie but I subsequently discovered at the
office water cooler that I missed some key points. This was due to the
spiked editing and the overused limited chromatics. Hey movie makers, a
little goes a long way! I was impressed with the photography for a
while. Then it started to wear me down and I missed stuff.
This stark limited chromatism really makes a movie quite unenjoyable
like Stone's "Natural Born Killers". (It's like walking around a cement
filled city like New York -- you gotta have some Central Park relief.)
Compare to the movie "Spartan" where it's used tastefully, sparingly..
