If Sandra Bullock and Viggo Mortensen were the only two things in this movie, the grade would have been a lot higher. The scene where Mortensen is signing autographs for a group of kids at the gas station and the unspoken part of the father realizing the centre bus and the following shot of him and Viggo in silence sold that for me.

What drags this movie down is the multiple supporting cast members. They really don't add anything to the movie and were frankly annoying most of the time. If they had been dropped and Bullock's struggle was more internal, coming to the realization she needs to change on her own moreso than she did.
