I just saw this movie for the first time. It really is another one of Thomas Jane's characters that is caught between a rock and a hard place. Do you do the right thing? Or do you do the other right thing? These tragic roles are so compelling and the most poignant when the point is reached when hope is lost and resignation sets in.

In Japanese culture, stories of the hero being in positions like this are common and beloved. In Norse mythology, Odin had the gift of forsight, so he knew that eventually, everything would be destroyed and nothing could be done to stop it.

How one decisively deals with the inevitability that things are going to end in failure, that's what creates a character.

This is by far one of his best movies yet. I have loved everything he has been in and I am sure there is much more to come from him. :rolleyes:
