    My apologies, wasn't thinking when I posted earlier. I removed my remarks as not to make anyone else angry and give away the ending.

    Great movie. The dedication of this team is phenomenal. The drama of restoration under a time constraint, the rugged landscape, the weather, and the restoration are truly epic in tale.

    Great post Sunny!
