That was extremely upsetting. The last ten minutes are one of the most brutal sequences any person could ever be asked to watch, and the battles have a terrifying energy in them that wasn't seen again in film until Saving Private Ryan. I'm very glad that was on display for the festival. Now I want to track down Bernard's Les Miserable.
Not rip roaring laughter, but definitely funny. Tony Cox and Bernie Mac are a riot , even John Ritter has some nice moments. Billy Bob is excellent and the little boy Brett Kelly has great delivery. Even Gloris Leachman has a nice little part that is set up nicely.
