No depth and terrible script! 3/10
23 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: I really had high hopes for this movie but it seemed to come and go really quickly and the ending was really disappointing. I was expecting a massive showdown between Thomas (Garrett Hedlund) and Jack (Oscar Isaac), who cross paths in the Mojave desert and become enemies after Jack, a penniless drifter, finds out about Thomas's wealth. Jack then follows Thomas to torment him, after an unfortunate incident that happened in the desert, which also puts Thomas's close friends and loved one in danger. Personally, i thought that the whole project lacked depth and it just seems like Thomas was in a world of his own most of the time. Oscar and Wahlberg were the best thing in the movie because they put some effort into there characters but apart from that, the storyline was weak and it would have made more sense if Thomas would have just come clean about the whole mistake that happened in the desert. Wahlberg (Norman) did make me laugh but he was only in a couple of scenes, which was a shame. Basically, this movie was a big let down and it was a waste of a good cast. Disappointing!

Round-Up: Garrett Hedlund, 31, also worked alongside Mark Wahlberg in Four Brothers, and he also starred in Inside Llewyn Davis with Oscar Isaac, so there was a sense of chemistry between the characters but it was the script that let it down. He first came on the scene in 2004 in Troy and he's taken the lead in big movies like Tron: Legacy, Eragon and Pan but it will take some time before he becomes a household name. Anyway, this movie was written and directed by William Monahan, 55, who also brought you London Boulevard starring Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley and Ray Winstone. The whole project seemed a bit rushed and not thought through properly, in my opinion but on the plus side, the Mojave backdrop did look authentic but that's about it.

I recommend this movie to people who are into their thrillers starring Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund, Louise Bourgoin, Walton Goggins, Mark Wahlberg and Tim Soergel. 3/10
