Just when I thought Bradley Cooper was a great actor he turns in a performance like this one and and makes me consider that he’s a *really* great actor. It seems like every movie I see him in he does something different and keeps doing it at a high level. There are many actors who can play a few roles really well, but not many that can perform with the diversity as Cooper does.
And to think he got his break as a bit character on *Alias*.
It’s really the acting that carries this movie. I thought the story was good, but not great. From what I can tell the “true” parts of the story were the best and most dramatic. I’d recommend looking up the real life man this movie is based on after you’ve seen it. He is truly inspiring.
