That may sound harsh and I guess for people who are not watching many movies this will seem, kind of OK. I can only give you my viewpoint. There are a few chances (missed ones that is), the movie gives away for free, where it could've scored. While this is based on a true story (character, he also must be in the movie, if I'm not mistaken, had no idea what he looked like, but even that cameo is predictable and obvious, that it almost hurts).
The acting is mostly OK, especially considering the material on hand. There is nothing to really play of. You also get a spiritual side story, that might be true, but does not translate well on screen. Not the way it is portrayed anyways. It's not the worst movie released this year or any other year, but you could spend your time better (maybe even read the real story behind this movie, I'm sure it's more interesting)
