Woman #1: I'm very angry. I can't believe doctors could betray so many people.
Man #1: I was part of the initial test group for the drug Vypraxilin. And, I can say without a doubt it was probably the worst decision I've ever made in my life.

oh my

Really Al? Anthony? These two actors in whom I have the highest regard, must be grasping at paychecks at this late stage of their otherwise illustrious careers. The last couple of movies these gentlemen have been in have all been stinkers. Phoned in performances and improperly vetted scripts and or directors have made for the culmination of crap which resulted in this bomb. Directing, editing, composition...all poorly done. Josh Duhamel will jump at anything to keep his name in lights but Julia Stiles? Malin Ackerman? And the robot Alice Eve whose performance was a study in a pot-head on anti-depressants who is abusing Ativan. This movie had potential if any of the actors had bothered to read the script and gotten interested in actually telling a good story. I am sure they were all stuck with the directing being done but good performances can usually overcome bad directing. Sadly, this film was lacking in both.
