Posted by: Tara This was an excellent, edge-of-your-seat flick. The beginning is a bit slow, but after the first 15-20 minutes it was really intense. Tom Hanks knocks it out of the park, especially at the very end. I would highly recommend this film - I have a feeling it'll be a Best Picture or Best Actor nomination.
