OK movie, not great. Certainly not worth the Oscar. There is a lengthy, drunken punch fest, between the two main characters that adds nothing to the story, which is by the way - slim. I watched this once and can't say I would watch it again. Avatar on the other hand I have seen a half dozen times and will surely watch again. Wait for this one to come on TV.
I enjoyed the movie and it's technical merite,but found it very confusing in who was who.All the actors were very simuliar in facial looks,and voices.Ohter than that is was a very compelling movie(although we disagreed with it winning the Oscar).We chose the Blind Side as a "better" movie.
