This easy to some extent hackneyed plot in my opinion, had to be executed does not exciting. Well, many have to say about the crazy, which can be any at this rhythm of modern life. But no artificiality, drew attention to  Fall.

The story told in film the truth can occur where you want. Although not without a certain measure of exaggeration. In one day a poor and exhausted William foster had heat stroke, standing idle in a hot day in the traffic road to which have become loathsome job. The consequences of this blow were not good — foster has decided to administer its own truth, why would it is not worth it.

In my opinion, all the tension lies in the gradual development of the film, how William, following home, once again engaged in the incident, constantly calls his wife, warning of your visit. These calls the fear of wife of William — Elizabeth deserves a better rating. One case for others on this hard road home makes the principles foster stronger changes opinion about this regular engineer, the detail in a huge mechanism without where he will continue to work properly. All these events are well-built if specially in help the main hero. How he gets a baseball bat, a bag with weapons, how it causes people to shudder at first from knowing that not him nothing but then even some fun, gives you the right to say that at least this day was worth wonder, though he has such a sad ending. Last working day detective trapped in the center of the events associated with man "shirt and tie" literally opposed to the day "ahead" of the hero of Douglas. This day fate had chosen for the collision of these characters.

I think, in General, the film is not had a little more tension effects to create it — music, environment, characters. The game Douglas very and very decent, but even the weapon in his hands looks terrifying, not invokes deep feelings. It is only the evaluation of its actions. The film has already a lot of comparisons with the drama even more with a parable based on such a simple, seemingly stories.

Almost the entire film is very much beating heart to the very last scene. Incredibly sorry protagonist of all those who suffered it. Incredibly sorry for him ex-wife and her daughter, police and colleagues — I remember second movie to it wasn't a disaster movie, and grief random people and the main characters were so badly pronounced and heartfelt. And all so different...

It's hard to recommend this movie to all: have many will cause heavy tears, but, of course, my rating "excellent".

The work of the actors, writer and all the rest, in my opinion, not even be criticized, Yes, and it is difficult to say whose there is more merit — so deep that the film stirs emotions, everything is fine, everything is as necessary.

Sorry. Sorry William, sorry foster, sorry everyone in this film. Feel sorry for yourself, because the characters see themselves, their environment, people on the street.

I watched the movie in youth remember my foster understanding, acceptance of his actions, with response bydlyachestvo and rudeness, street freaks. Surprise and their lack of understanding of confidence their impunity, and duty of others to endure, because it's a free, democratic country, and if you hit the face response an insult, or at least spit there, then you wear out on the courts do the blame around. The action of the events on the screen was mesmerizing, the fact that created desire, even with brute force, but so sometimes we like... the Very same impression the film then was good, but is closer to medium.

Just watched it now. One of the most profound films I've ever seen! In the smallest details and nuances, so much of people their character. I never seen such a no one new film years, perhaps for 5 and and more. And I'm not mean they only as prerequisites action, but and how were familiar with them for a long time. Communication foster with wife, colleagues, boss, mother of William... Yes, literally in a few minutes of screen time put all the life of the mother of William, then as she unhappy as loves the son, and what her head. The seller in shop of military goods. Colorful, Yes. And even a hidden homosexual, perhaps because of this, so hates pale blue. Even the waitress serving frozen Manager at a catering for Breakfast William, there is it against this managery, and how much is said about her reaction to mention that on behalf of the contact to strangers gut.

And very important, which way can go person for the day. And it is not a path in kilometers, it way from "man making a racket", and from person zashugannyh own wife, until.... And their I just did what needs.

In General, the list is very long. In not bad good characters, the role of the bad guy takes on himself to society, and every single person in something good, and in their schools worthy of sympathy and understanding, but it makes it more worse, he just so, nothing do or to fix it. New words were heard about that a fucking plastic surgeon gets more people work for the sake of protecting their country. Damn, the ideas of communism are remembered with nostalgia, and very sorry they are mostly utopian. Even know that need people to be kinder and more attentive, though not all understand appreciate it (as the captain in regard to foster, when he said that do not trust a person, does not swear), and not because the source can be a gun, and because I hate to be that ugly as the work on the road as the man waited for the phone as the rest...

The film is a definite score! I think whether it is not only great directing and great acting, but and 2-3 million more money on action stunts tape I would have a couple of Oscars, yeah and would be more accepted by the broad masses (that however does not necessary). I put 9 10, for personal rating that is very high. For comparison, a rating of 10 has a maximum of 3-4 of the film. I recommend to repeated viewing.
