User Reviews: I just finished watching this film and I’m stunned…stunned. Morgan Freeman’s performance was the best acting I have seen in a long time. The passion he put into his character was raw and powerful. It had me going "Wow." The movie was interesting- moments of tension. I did not think Christopher Reeve did a great job of his character- mediocre for cinema. He pulled it off well enough to get me into his character. Maybe his mediocre performance was who the character really was. There is no way of knowing the answer to this question. It could be either, or. Everyone you meet in the real world and in fantasy is not a dramatic, stunning personality. There wouldn’t be any room for people’s egos! Who says his performance was not true of the character. The character was who Reeve was.

The message of this film is very true. Don’t lie. If you do make a mistake, if you lie, admit up front that you have. Otherwise, it’s likely your lie will come back times 3. This is a lesson we should all have to learn one day. I hoped this review pleased someone. Take care and have a joyous and peaceful life. Good bye, Chauncey
