Underrated movie
28 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Even if the script was not so great,acting was.Worth watching after a bunch of bad movies appears these days.Comparing to "The town" movie directed by the "Great actor" Ben Affleck,there was a good script but when I see Ben Affleck the whole movie seems bad.Is like a black sheep,I'v never seen a good movie with him.Was good in Gigli and Dare Davil if you know what I mean. Adrien Brody & Hayden Christensen are great actors,hope the movie get a better rate and "a poster" beside the title on IMDb. I give this movie a 7 comparing to other watched this year,not worth mention.Offtopic but I have to mention the freaking doll in the "American Sniper" if you know what I'm saying,shame for Clint Eastwood directing,I haves't see a bigger mistake in last 20 year's.
