You will NEVER forget this movie. I am over 40 and have been "moved" by some movies. This is indeed one of my Favorites. I do not have a Movie Collection, but I am buying it so that I can share it with others. EVERYONE needs to see this Movie. My husband who is a Action Movie buff did not want to watch it, but HE loved it. My son however watched it and he said once was enough as it made him cry at the age of 18. He is also a "terminator" type Action and Thriller movie buff.
It was a little slow but the storyline was good. It was just another version of ¿big kid (or adult) helps young child out of miserable situation¿. A not-as-good version of ¿The Mighty¿. If I¿d seen it in the theater, I probably wouldn¿t have purchased it.
