The fact that director Dito Montiel used to play in a NY hardcore band shines through in his choices for several posters: one of '70s London punk band X-Ray Spex in the hallway of the flat young Milk and his friends were living; one of '80s L.A. hardcore punk band Circle Jerks in young Milk's place; and one of '80s Frisco hardcore band M.D.C. at the police station.

I was reading some reviews on this movie and pretty much ignored them because of all the star power. In the end the critics were right about this movie. Every actor in this movie looked out of place and not interested in the part they were playing.
Let's start with the younger kids in the flash backs. Overall, the acting was very poor from the younger generation in this film, Channing Tatum younger barely spoke and when he did it didn't seem real. Maybe, I was thrown off here because Tracy Morgan and Channings younger didn't even come close to resembling the adults.
I don't think anyone read the script before accepting the gig. Throwing a lot of great actors together for a crime thriller sometimes doesn't work and this is one case where it failed. Poor story, poor direction, and just downright bad acting by a lot of the big names in this film starting with Channing Tatum. If someone could turn back the clock this movie would of never made it past the green light.
