Reviews

Amerikaanse speelfilm uit 2002 van en met Denzel Washington en met Derek Luke. Dit regiedebuut is gebaseerd op een waargebeurde geschiedenis waarbij het leven van marinier Antwone Fisher centraal staat. Fisher heeft regelmatig last van driftbuien waarbij hij ook zijn meerderen aanvalt. Hij krijgt straf en de opdracht de psychiater te bezoeken. Aanvankelijk weigert hij elke medewerking, maar na verloop van tijd gaat hij de confrontatie met zijn verleden aan. Brian Webster (Apollo Movie Guide,i) geeft 73 (van 100) punten: 'Thankfully, the last act of the film – in which Fisher seeks out his long-lost birth-parents – provides a big payoff, as the strong acting and directorial restraint culminate in a set of ‘reunion’ scenes that ring utterly true and make the film very much worthwhile.'
