R I V E T I N G .

There are no sufficient words...but that's never stopped me from trying (!), so here goes:

1. Peter Berg is at the top of his game. Genius.

2. The special effects are remarkable.

3. By Act II, the movie has you on the edge of your seat.

4. By Act III, you're a puddle to be wiped from the seat.

Somehow, inexplicably, a few robots in the theater reacted rather nonchalantly and seemed altogether blasé about the whole production, whereas I was thinking the entire time, "This has got to be one of the top ten movies of all time!"

Must be the testosterone talkin'. It's like a war film.

Anyway, whatevs. Diff'rent strokes for different folks.

Far as I'm concerned, this is an EVENT movie, and I do not meekly suggest you see it, I IMPLORE you. It's a moral imperative, man, a MORAL IMPERATIVE!!!

GO SEE THIS FILM. (Just eat beforehand, 'cause I guar-ron-tee you won't be able to take your eyes off the screen once it kicks into high gear.)

Plus, your hands will be super-busy wipin' back some tears.

Go, Mike Williams, go!

"Thank you," indeed.
