    I just saw it today, and yes, it did suck. The previews were way better than the movie.

    It was basically an anti-war movie that discussed the pros and cons of the war and then ended abruptly, apparently leaving it up to the viewer to decide (like the Sopranos).

    Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep (spelling?) were the best 2 actors in the movie.

    Cruise is a pro-war Senator and Streep is an anti-war journalist reporting on the war. Cruise asks her for an interview to push his new war strategy and Streep resists.

    The movie would have been much more effective a year or 2 ago. I think people have already made up their minds.

    I have to agree that the previews looked good. I thought maybe this is what Tom Cruise needs to do for his career, be a supporting actor instead of the lead...well, after reading the reviews, I will not waste my money.

    Aww well it wasn't that bad....

    Just the occasional "Umm What?" now and then.

    Tom Cruise was pretty good though..i dont know it's just the plot that wasn't terrific.

    You'll just have to watch it and find out for yourself. i have yet to see it, but there are movies that have been given terrible reviews and i really enjoy them. Everyone has their own taste. A movie you may enjoy i may not like, and one you may not like might be my favorite movie.
