Only worth seeing for Gibson's performanceMy Movie Rating: 7 / 10
The boys are perfectly cast. The sequence right at the beginning when Mel Gibson is chasing the soldiers after the cruel murder of his son is well-handled by the two boys (Trevor Morgan, Bryan Chafin). The story as a whole is typical American cinema, filled with pathos and patriotism.My Movie Rating: 9 / 10
