What a waste of a good cast.
3 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a waste of a top notch cast. Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, Katie Holmes, Channing Tatum and Juliette Binoche. I can understand why they chose to be in a movie together. What could go wrong? Plenty. The screenplay is terrible. The movie could have been watchable and quite involving if the story had been told in a more traditional chronological fashion with less jumping back and forth in time. Unfortunately it's a messy jigsaw puzzle that breaks up the impact. Key plot is revealed through quick mumblings and incomprehensible dialog that is lost in the expletives. The direction isn't clear. All impact is lost.

Channing has been uglied up and looks suitably serious and a bit puffy

  • quite realistic. Katie looks tired and worried. Al looks like he


waltzed in from another movie. Ray Liotta is a bit puffy too. Juliette is a bit hard to understand.

Give this one a miss. It's just terrible.

The movie is unpleasant set among the tenements and full of ugly images and words.
