Oh! My! God! Watch! This! Movie!
16 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Are you people retarded?!??!? How?!?!? How...on Earth...did anyone...give this movie a bad review?!?!? This is one of the greatest movies ever produced by Hollywood!!!! I was on the edge of my seat the whole entire time!!! The writers of this script need to be awarded an Oscar, John Cusack is awesome as always, and Jennifer Carpenter...mark...my...words...one day, Jennifer Carpenter will have her very own star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame...right next to Nicholson, Brando, Pacino, De Niro, Hopkins...hands-down one of the most talented actresses of our time. Yeah...she's that caliber of an actress, right up there with the big boys I just mentioned, and this movie is sure to catapult her career to even greater heights than where it already is. My summary header was going to be "I swear on the Bible you will love this movie," but after seeing all of the bad reviews on here, ruh-tards can't be accounted for. The only negativity I felt throughout the movie was towards the movie's villain, played by Dallas Roberts. Yeah...he's the kind of David Koresh narcissistic villain I would literally love to beat into a coma with my fists once I got my hands on him. That's the kind of emotion he brings out in you! Dallas Roberts, too, may one day have his own star, as his performance was top-notch as well, easily bringing out those emotions in me. A perfect ten out of ten stars!!! Watch this movie!!! You will love it!!!!!!
