This again shows Kurt Russell's range and how he can effortlessly blend through different genres.
Here he shows how good he is to be silent and still, with a role that requires him to say very little. And he does it very effectively, because of just how good he is with his eyes and the emotions you get from it.
As the title states, it revolves around a Soldier who has been indoctrinated and had his emotions subdued and how he goes about trying to reconnect with these emotions that have been suppresed for so long.
A film worth watching solely for Kurt Russell's performance.
Kurt Russell's son Wyatt plays him as an eleven year old in the movie. And his son was also in one of the episodes of Black Mirror

They don't make them like thsi anymore. From his look, mannerism and gruff voice, he just has that presence that you only got from back in the 80's.

Always a very good addition to a cast.
His father is the very famous James Brolin who was the leading man, heart-throb back in the day.
Beowulf, Back to the Future 1 and 2, Forrest Gump
A very underrated and talented Director, who has made some technical advancements in the films he's made which has gone unnoticed.
Apart from being both a very good writer and director, in Forest Gump, Back to the Future and Beowulf, he is using special effects that were advanced for their time, and does so very well.
Rarely makes a complete dud, and is always a sure hand with his movies.
Had the difficult task of having to let go off of Eric Stolz once they began shooting Back to the Future, realizing he wasn't right for the role. As hard as it was, it turned out to be the right decision.
The most bold and daring of Spike Lee's joints. It's one of those where you either really hit it, or it falls flat.
So when I initially saw this when i was younger, I thought the idea was interesting based on what was being said, but it came out to be hammy and just didn't hold up well.
Upon revisiting it now, it still has its issues and could have been tighter, but there are things I didn't notice when I was younger. And there are parallels with regards to how African-Americans are shown in media, and how the execs view them as just creatures for entertainment. So there are some gems in there, with the standout being Michal Rappaport who was perfectly cast.
