Well, I finally did blind buy this and thoroughly enjoyed it! One cannot just go wrong with your reviews, Ralph, so, much obliged! This movie has all the right ingredients for me, including Cruise! I sometimes think, "Man, this guy's been doing so much good stuff this next one might be disappointing..." And then he goes and does it again! The real treat though, for me, was the inclusion of good ol' Mr. Robert Duvall! Another actor who can do no wrong...
It is a really good Blu-ray presentation--boy, the red on that revving Chevy--which I will have to revisit soon as I had to itermittedly interrupt my 1st-time viewing yesterday...(was gonna rewatch it soon anyway!)
also enjoyed coming back to this thread and being reminded of what an "edible plant" Pike is!!! Yummie!
I know this a very late entry but maybe others would like to give it that "one" shot, eh?
