Great aside from Paxton's last ridiculous scene.
Bill Paxton is an inconsistent actor. He tends to be serviceable and rather good if the film is a campy one. If the film calls for any subtlety at all, like this miniseries, then he is inadequate. He's not a naturalistic actor and telegraphs all of his acting decisions with inexplicable vocal delivery. His final scene in this film nearly ruins what has come before it. Talk about a hilariously bad acting job from this man.share
