Where to watch

Movie information in first post provided by The Movie Database
Has anyone seen this one yet as it does look good from what I am reading but I don't want to wast my time by getting it only to find out it is no good.
 
The movie looks familiar to me and I swear I've seen it, but it must not have been anything special because I honestly can't remember anything about it that might have left an impression on me.
 
Then I will just wait for it to hit our SAT TV so if it is a bust then I would have not wasted anything on it.
 
Well I ended up watching this one and thought it was outstanding
