The Messenger (2009)
Everyone seems to think that this movie is something special. It's not. Woody Harrelson (who, by the way, is having a fantastic year between this, 2012, and Zombieland) is good as the primary soldier in charge of notifying the next of kin of soldiers killed in battle and Ben Foster is not bad as his assistant, but he loses major points for being a creepy stalker. Seriously, why does Samantha Morton like this guy? He follows her around the mall and shows up at her house, all the while having been the guy who told her that her husband is dead? Not realistic. Also, most of this movie is done hand-held and you all know how I feel about that.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
