Obviously this critic has no underatanding about this film. Sure, Batman, Titanic, and Gladiator all get 10/10, but a movie that actually portrays reality, and not some tragic mediocre fantasy is a 3 due to the fact that it has a sense of truth and morals that are incompattible with today's society. Nowadays, people want to get away from the truth - escape it because it hurts. In this film, we see the struggles that these characters go through - we see change and when we come out of the theater we tell ourselves that we actually learned something valuable that could inevitably benefit our spiritual lives. People such as this critic reject the notion or existence of a spiritual world and that is why it seems dull to them. If they are actually able to connect with these characters spiritually, they too may enjoy this fulfilling story.
As a christian, Mr. Holcomb, I cannot curse or judge you, but I must say that you are a fool. Hollywood should concentrate on rebuilding the emotionally, mentally destroyed audience that is addicted to films with complete nonsense and directly opposite morals. Media controls the minds these days. No wonder so many people are depressed! No wonder these new generations are so morally corrupt! Thank you for the refreshing thoughts that I am not alone Mr. Slavikb2 :)
