Goofs

Contrary to popular belief, a localized fire will not set off the entire sprinkler system and drench a whole building, since the water can only be released by shattering a heat-sensitive glass bulb located inside each individual sprinkler head. See more »

I was the only one in the cinema at the Thursday night preview screening.
24 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

In 1970s Boston, an illegal arms deal goes from bad to worse, leaving a group of low lifes with guns drawn, for an hour long shootout in an abandoned warehouse.

The problem with this seemingly never ending shootout, complete with guns which hold about 96 bullets, and characters who are shot multiple times, only to show no ill affects, is that it never looks real.

The problem with an entire film peopled with one dimensional characters is that we don't care if they survive or not.

The problem with the comic relief is that it isn't funny. Only about a half dozen lines made me laugh, and Armie Hammer is the only one to put in a memorable performance, with the remainder of the cast just simply * there *, occupying space.

According to Boxofficemojo, this $10.000.000 budgeted film only took in a horrifying $994,430 from 1070 cinemas in its opening weekend, placing it at number 17 for its first week. So, apparently, I wasn't the only person to see it in an empty cinema.
