  • Kirk Douglas' performance...is so strong and inspiring it's a shame there isn't a better movie around it.

  • A treacly, ham-fisted, German-American co-production about family ties that should only have been released in the circle of Hell reserved for movie critics.

  • Isn't much of a movie, but it's worth a look just to see screen legend Kirk Douglas, Michael's eighty-three-year-old father, kick ass.
