Really bad
23 February 2016 | by teddiechungSee all my reviews

Wondering why Pacino & Hopkins agree to act in this absurd movie directed by a new guy who wrote scripts for low-budget scary movies before. The story is loosely written, just like a fairy tale allowing readers to select storyline and endings. Without a solid flow of events and actions, the movie can go to everywhere and nowhere. This is exactly the feeling I have after watching painfully for 2 hours. This is the kind of movie film school should use to teach their students to avoid. Frankly speaking, the movie has made all the mistakes one can imagine.

Sorry to see Pacino and Hopkins those great actors taking part in such absurd movie. Same things happen to de Niro (eg the Intern) as well. I really want them to be more selective in future acting roles. Hollywood doesn't have much to remember now.
