    Wish I could be as enthusiastic about this noble attempt to make a small town, ecological flic as the previous reviewer, but this film is just too long and too syrupy sweet for my taste. A harder edge is needed (i.e. Christopher Walken's character needs to be a lot more menacing and at least one member of the threatened small town needs to be a serious asshole.) However, there are a lot of good performances (Redford, like a lot of thesps turned director, seems to coax the best out of his actors) like Sonia Braga as the lustiest of the pro environmentalists in Milagro, John Heard as a disillusioned ex hippie, and Ruben Blades as a world weary, small town sheriff. Robbie Greenberg's cinematography is also good, as is Dave Grusin's music. Give it a B minus.

    Joy, joy, joy. What a magnificent little movie! A fable-like tale that pulls at one's heart-strings and evokes a celebration of simple yet grand values such as family, community, honor, justice, and last but not least love. The story's greatness is in its simplicity. Robert Redford should have earned an Oscar for his eloquent direction of this movie (a contemporary tale of David and Goliath). Redford was as superb here as he was with "Ordinary People".
