The only flaw in the film was the size of Susan Sarandon's role. It was a minor part and I truly believe that superior actors should get superior roles. What really makes the film work is the performance of Tommy Lee Jones, who is on screen for the majority of the film and really makes his presence known. Charlize Theron complements him even though her character is somewhat predictable. The supporting cast of Joseph Bertot, Brent Briscoe, Devin Brochu, Josh Brolin, and Mehcad Brooks gave fine performances. I found the intensity in each scene kept me involved while the characters uncovered the truth.
