I liked this more than the mixed reviews might suggest I would.

Now, as I watched this, I was struck by the similarities to the Star Wars Trilogy, so much so that I decided that Clooney was Kenobi, Spacey was Darth Vader, Ewen was Luke (!), and Bridges was Yoda.

On further reflection, I'm pretty sure you could map most of it to Campbell's Hero's Quest and the seventeen phases of the Monomyth, which is why it maps closely to Star Wars.

Recommended. A fun movie.
