Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

It's a shame this fairly good film had to end on a misstep. The problem is not the plot twist itself, which is an integral part of the story and not a very big surprise, but the method by which it is delivered to the audience, since that method would undermine everything the characters set out to accomplish. The film still wouldn't be perfect without this mistake - Winslet's over-the-top histrionics are particularly bad and it uses clich├ęs like crutches - but it would be much better.
