One hour and forty someting minutes I will never get back. One of my top 10 worst movies I have had to ever endure. And in the top five most dissapointing considering the cast. Andbody that sees this movie as anything more than a total dissapointment needs to have a CT scan because they're way ovedue!
Ultimate truth is in the background of all that transpires in this movie. Most reviewers seem to see only the surface meanings--the drama of life rather than the subtler esoteric meanings

I am always amazed how people interpret movies (and books) that you MUST read between the lines. I saw a lot of \"hope\" in the film. A lesson was being taught- some won't be able to grasp. A good film should stick with you and provoke thought. Although not the \"best\" of these types of films it still had \"brass\".

This movie was another attack from Hollywood on people trying to do the right thing. DeNiro had a tough job listening to prisoners and trying to determine if they were truly reformed or just saying what was necessary to get out of prison. As a Christian, I felt a personal attack on my lifestyle. Satan is alive and well attacking institutions that are doing what is necessary.
What a waste of time. Even though i made myself watch it through to the end hoping for meaningful ending, I found the whole damm movie borng,dry, extremly depressing with a pointless ending ., a total waste of my time!.
