A Funny Melodrama at Places. And Just Funny at Others !

I couldn't understand why the wife turned the mugger's gun aside from her to her husband's face? I couldn't understand how the child grandson was the computer Warlock of the gang ?!! I couldn't believe how eccentric the lead's monologue was in the restaurant ! And I couldn't have any enjoyment out of this "King Lear" in the first place !!

The ambition was fine. A modern-day adaptation. A crime king instead of a king. And filthy rotten character for a filthy rotten world. But something was missing, or extra. I know that both ways, the movie was uninteresting and heavy.

It's dark movie. However, its characters were talking like they're from another world. The tragedy hasn't been treated well to be something as The Godfather, or smart apart. Simply the shadows of the real play were bigger than the case which the script selected, so the movie lived a killer irony.

The artistic points managed to portray effective sense of grief, but they didn't make up for the lost credibility, and gave the movie even more outlandish feel. (My Kingdom) is sometimes too theatrical to be believed, too gloomy to be attractive and too silly to be re-watched again!

It's not a great tragedy. Not a great crime film. Maybe the average both yet with an odd character pushes it even to the weak side. In any event.. I hated it!
