I have watched this film almost 17 years ago back in 1989. It was a big film success getting 8 Academy Awards and had won two awards for best Director and for Best Film Editing. The film has also won 4 Golden Globe Awards as well as Directors Guild of America Award. It earned $161,001,698.00 around the world. Do you remember watching this film? What can you say about the film? What movies are you planning to watch today? Have you watch any movies recently?

Seriously? It's one of Tom Cruise's biggest hits and he was Oscar nominated for it.

@LadyDuck Is Charlie Chan by chance related to Jackie Chan the famous martial art actor?

@mandala100 Surely not, Charlie Chan is a fictional character, created by Earl Derr Biggers. He is a Chinese detective and the episodes of this series date from 1936 up to 1948.

i watched this movie, we even have a VHS tape of it. Tom Cruise is a good actor, in fact, he earned an Oscar nomination for his role in this film.

@ridingbet You are right my friend. He earned a nomination for this film. And if I'm not mistaken some scene of this film was shot in your country the Philippines is that right?

@mandala100 yes that is true. there were some shots taken here in my country. too bad he was still young that time, that is why he did not win. if i remember it right, it was Tom Hanks who won the Oscar in the movie Forrest Gump. please correct me if i am wrong.
