My god, what a piece of junk Hollywood foisted on the general public with this movie. After watching the first 25 minutes of it I realized that I had wasted 30 minutes of my life.
The movie should have been titled "The Bird" because it was so awful. Overacting, poor script, and unrealistic dialogue all fitted into the formula for this flick. It was Hollywood's overindulgence to itself.
I am glad Michael Keaton got a chance to star in a movie but his acting was so over the top. And the same applied to Edward Norton, who is a normally a very fine actor.
I am sure a better movie could have be written about an actor who wanted to transition from Comicbook Hero to a dramatic actor. But this movie falls so flat on its face it needs nose surgery.
