Like "Apollo 13" you know how the story ends, but you are held spellbound as the events unfold regardless. Captivating performances from a superb cast, exciting visual effects, majestic art design and costumes, a sweeping music score and undying love. It's got it all!
Following the travesty that was "The Ugly Truth" last year, Katherine Heigl and director Robert Luketic collaborate for their next film "Killers" alongside Ashton Kutcher. Like the former, this film fails miserably. Heigl and Kutcher share no chemistry with each other in this action romance comedy. The film didn't earn back its $75 million budget as it grossed only $47 million in ticket #!@%*#. Avoid seeing this mess.

This is a good film, but the romance is so sacchrine Hollywood. Plus, although I liked the historical aspects, I felt like people I talked to who said "The boat sank. Get used to it." Still, essential teen viewing, 'specially for those exposed only to "Twilight."
Great Premise, Terrible Follow-Through

Anesthesia awareness is still debated among doctors, although the consensus is that it is possible, but to what extent? What could have been a great medical/psychological chiller turns out to be an hour's worth of corny romantic buildup, followed by a plot full of cookie-cut-out villains (where's the black mustache?). It doesn't help that Alba and Christiansen can't really act (as least in this flick). If you like medical thrillers, it's worth watching once, but try something a bit better like Extreme Measures, Coma or Anatomy.
