    Sweet Old World is inspired by my personal documentary film, The Band (PBS series P.O.V., 1998), in which I followed my son through his junior year in high school as we both struggled with the death of his brother seven years earlier. It tells the fictional story of a father (Brian) and teenage son (Ethan) whose lives were shattered when the son's brother was killed in an accident seven years earlier. Both trapped in their own private grief and pain, their relationship has grown strained and cold over the years. The return of the dead son's best friend, who had left town with his family after the accident, causes Brian and Ethan's carefully constructed protective shells to shatter-bringing them both to the brink of disaster and the potential for a new life and relationship. Throughout, the story is driven by Ethan, whose new found, and seemingly uncharacteristic willingness to flirt with danger under the influence of his brother's friend forces Brian to confront his own buried grief. ...

The easyest 9

I 'm old. I've watched (not seen) more than 3000 movies. I gave 10 to "Apocalypse now" after long, long consideration. This film, according to my humble judgment, MUST be the most essential lesson in the Director's Class School. According to my (again, humble judgment) when you are smiling at the end the film/movie, you have watched a REAL hit!

The Beginning Of J.J. Abrams

Before J.J. Abrams was making a name for himself with Alias, LOST, Fringe, Super 8, and Star Trek/Wars, he was young screenwriter "Jeffrey Abrams" writing the screenplay for this Mel Gibson vehicle. While the film as a whole is only decent, it is fascinating to get a glimpse into the early film musings of Abrams.

For a basic plot summary, "Forever Young" tells the story of Captain Daniel McCormick (Gibson), a military test pilot in 1939 who sees his fiancée Helen (Isabel Glasser) involved in an accident and rendered comatose. Overcome with grief, Daniel persuades inventor friend Harry Finley (George Wendt) to enroll him in an experimental freezing process (to last a year) so he doesn't have to watch the love of his life slowly die. Daniel is indeed frozen...but wakes up in 1992 instead of 1940. Taken in by single mother Claire (Jamie Lee Curtis) and son Nat (Elijah Wood), Daniel must assimilate back into culture while at the same time untangle those missing years.

There are unique elements to this script that I see Abrams' handprints all over. It's a mix of science fiction, romance, drama, and adventure, and all those elements work well together. The premise is interesting, the acting is quite good, and there really are some great scenes featuring Gibson and Wood (their chemistry almost steals the show at times). The film doesn't really do anything flashy or have any special effects at all, but it is able to create some great character moments and tug at the emotions.

The problem with "Forever Young", however, is that the climax isn't nearly as interesting or well- executed as the setup. In the final third of the movie, I kept waiting for a big, emotional character moment, or some kind of interesting plot twist, but neither were in the offing. Instead, it unfortunately just kind of plays out rather predictably and loses much of its steam.

Overall, I consider "Forever Young" to be a rather average film, but potentially more interesting when considering the legacy that J.J. Abrams might leave on the film industry when all is said and done. I can easily see the Abrams-ness of the movie, but it just isn't as polished or interesting as his subsequent works. This is a flick that can be enjoyed by the entire family (really no questionable material besides a few curse words), however, so it still retains a decent amount of value.

Funny and enjoyable,not a masterpiece though

I saw it a few days ago and enjoyed it. it's not a masterpiece, i mean the main idea was a little unoriginal and the ending was predictable, but it was a funny and enjoyable movie to watch, especially the chemistry betwean mel Gibson and jamie lee curtis(two great actors) and also elijah wood which was pretty great. mel Gibson did a fine is not his best work but he was good,the most important thing he did was not letting the character be a boring one.elijah wood was also funny and i was kinda surprised to see him in this movie.afterall this movie cannot be considered as a masterpiece or an influential film,but the very important point is that it's not trying to.this film is supposed to be amusing and entertaining and to be "light" for it's audience,and imo it's very successful in it's own way. i give it a 7 out of 10.
