After her husband, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is kidnapped by terrorists, Mariane (Jolie) heads a desperate search for clues in a frantic race against time to locate her missing husband. Directed by maverick filmmaker Michael Winterbottom. A Mighty Heart is a gripping story of faith, hope and courage in the face of tragedy.
Why is this movie called A Mighty Heart? Which character supposedly has/had a mighty heart? Why is the beheading of Daniel Pearl so much more newsworthy than the beheadings of countless other innocent victims over the past few years. This was a boring movie about a decent enough but unremarkable and essentially boring man who, in part through his own stupidity, is kidnapped and murdered.
It is incredible that such a gory story could also be tedious and boring - but it is. Mariane and Daniel Pearl are not interesting. The ONLY interesting thing about this couple is the fact Daniel got murdered. This is not enough to sustain a movie.
Angelina Jolie's curly wig and awful French/Spanish/American accent make you keep wondering whether this feature is comedy or drama!
A deeply emotional film in which Angelina Jolie and Will Patton, as well as the other actors play in this film in a truly realistic way!!
A Mighty Heart shows how a journalist, David Pearl becomes the victim of fundamentalists, in Pakistan, and his wife Marianne's progressive state of happiness turning into harrowing fear and despair as the investigation to find David takes place
