    A wonderful message to learn from and to bring some reality back into the world. Unfortunately, the move extended 15 minutes beyond its message.

    The story wasn't bad and the movie wasn't a bad movie, but it had the makings of a great movie! I did enjoy the motive behind it, and Robert Downey Jr.'s performance was really good.
