No need to even think of including spoilers. Countless clichés, annoyingly grating and loud, unnecessary profanity, predictable. Did I mention utterly formulaic?
Are the great reviews all planted from those associated with the movie
actors, friends, movie companies and marketers? Or is the movie going
public aiming so incredibly low that they no longer have a concept of what makes a movie watchable, never mind great (or even good)?
My daughter warned me that we would hate this (she certainly did)....and she was absolutely right.
I guess I need some more lines for this to be published. The movie is loaded with racial stereotypes....even the actors are stereotypes of themselves (DeNiro is vintage Capone type DeNiro...essentially mailed it in). Jennifer Lawrence is clearly a fine actress, but this role is an insult to her talent. And...really...Julia Stiles? Maybe that was the dead giveaway that this is a horrible movie.
Is that enough lines of text? How many more ways do I need to say "avoid this movie at all costs"?
