I usually love the BBC stuff, but not this one. I found myself frequently checking to see how much time was still left until it was over. There was an underlying political tone to it that should have been more fully explained or left out entirely. Possibly it was obvious to British audiences, but not to me.

With Sean Bean, Clive Owen and Polly Walker, how could this not rate 5 stars? Excellent movie!
(the horsehair wig is bad though)

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

I'm sure to some this movie would be ok, it certainly has some famous actors in it. It's just not my cuppa.

I can't recall where the overall level of cast attractiveness has been higher. But the hockey hair wigs have to go. You may also want to know what the film was like. Compared to the 2001 version, it suffers from a lower budget. And I would also give the other version an edge in writing and direction, which is a shame because this one is...well, if you threw a stone, you would hit a famous actor. However, the story is interesting enough to see twice, so by all means, take out both.
