The guy really knows how to stage a battle scene. Whether it’s U.S. Army types blasting the heck out of intrusive extraterrestrials in "Independence Day" or Colonial militia going toe-to-toe with the Redcoats in "The Patriot," when Emmerich gets down and dirty with combat, our attention is well and truly held. However, he doesn’t seem to be sure what temperature to set for the calmer sections.

Inman (Jude Law) has been off at war for three-plus years. Waiting for him is Ada Monroe (Nicole Kidman), the daughter of a minister (Donald Sutherland) who is not equipped for rural life. Once the men leave for war and Monroe passes away, Ada is forced to make due at the farm of Black Cove by herself. Needless to say, she is ill-suited for the task and is forced to rely on the kindness of others to help her through the first winter. A constant presence and ...

There's only a handful of good ones -- "MASH," "Dr. Strangelove," "Apocalypse Now" -- which make their points clearly and strongly, and which have a point of view. The war comedies that don't have a point of view, like "Kelly's Heroes," can be entertaining but also tend to leave a kind of sour taste in terms of ethics and morality. "Buffalo Soldiers" is one of the latter. It debuted at a film festival on September 7, 2001, and because of the events of the 11th, was quickly put on the shelf by its American distributor, Miramax. ...

Two superpowers, the United States and the United Soviet Socialist Republics, each fresh from the horror of World War II and realizing that global domination by a superior military was possible, set about staking out new battleground high above the Earth.
