    If you haven't seen this one yet give it a try...and watch all the way to the end of the closing credits for an easter egg.

    Linty: what, in your opinion made it so good? I was really on the fence about this one.

    It was certainly not on par with Payne's other films. As I described to you earlier, I thought his other movies showed common human emotions and reactions through quirky and interesting characters. The first part was there, but not the second.

    No Spoilers here, not to worry.....
    I found it to be a good 'B' movie. The principal character is a loner of sorts and this type of film appeals to me by default. Add to this a hostile environment, roughnecks and regional dangers. I enjoy Liam Neeson and it was this that made me give it a chance. It stuck with me the day after and if a film does that for me I'll give it a thumbs up. If you give it a chance make sure to catch the easter egg scene at the very end of the credits. It is all of 3 or 4 seconds. I give it a 6.5 out of 10 and will probably watch it again at least once more. Of itself it is not a 'true story' but is based on several true accounts blended into one tale.

    I'm not going to review every post in tis thread for the flick but recently had the opportunity to watch Léon: The Professional ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110413/), the European version.
    For those who had only watched the North American cut, do yourself a favour and try and locate this version. It certainly adds a new dimension to the chemistry between the roles played by Jen Reno and Natalie Portman. Beyond that, the film has aged well with Gary Oldman's trademark psycho " Moooooooozart!!! !"
