This is a toughy. The idea(s) behind the whole story/plot was grand and somehow, Mr Lee just couldn't tell the story at the same level which it probably deserved to be told. For a "war movie" there were long periods of nothing happening. This is ok, if the nothing parts are interesting. i found that the longer this movie went on, the more it was dragging. The final 30 minutes built up, but by then I was less interested with the characters. Also (and maybe this is just me), I was waiting for some big "miracle" which never really happened. There were some HUGE plot pieces that were left unanswered or confusing to me.
Anyways, not terrible, but below Spike's abilities (IMO)
PS> The little kid was a true bright spot and a gifted talent (for his age especially). One star for him alone.
