This was quite possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. Tom Cruise gives his all as usual, but unforunately it's not enough to save this poor film. This movie is too long and too repetitive. There is not enough of a story line to build on to warrant the length. Had I watched it in theatres versus as home I would have walked out.

when i first saw this movie it captured me in away that had my eyes glued 2 da screen. Wondering who he had killed and what was acutally going on in David Ames head. But at the end this movie really change my views on relationships he had a night full of love with a women he clearly when he first saw struck a lighting bolt 2 his heart. But being a womanizer like a lot of us are he couldn't say

It's no wonder that Crowe can't generate any real feeling. The narrative is alien to him on every level. The ear-grating dialogue is a good indication that he didn't know what he was doing; he's usually pitch-perfect. Full Review

For all the filmmakers' efforts, this project is something of an artistic albatross. It's a conundrum that doesn't get answered until a sort of help-the-audience Cliffs Notes final scene, in which we learn Everything. But by then, more than a few of us may be wondering, was it all really worth the trouble? Full Review

The film's aim -- to dazzle and inspire -- is sapped by Cruise's vein-popping, running-the-marathon performance. Full Review

Boston Globe
May not emerge as the biggest disaster of the holiday movie season, if only because we haven't yet seen all the other year-end films. But it is a huge high-energy misfire, bringing Tom Cruise, Penelope Cruz, and Cameron Crowe to earth with a thud. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Its tone is unquenchably pretentious, and its scale is overblown. Full Review
