Incoherent in its multiplicity of themes this movies is a mixed bag of elements that worked and others that just overly complicated a simple heist.
What was good, Colin Farrell was good as was Elizabeth Debicki giving solid nuanced performances of conflicted characters, I also loved Olivia the dog who just dominated her scenes. Viola Davis and Liam Neeson overworked it and appeared nearly hysterical throughout which was a great shame.
The plot was labyrinthine and some plot turns just had no motivational necessity.
Overall I enjoyed it but where was the glittering promise we expected from Steve McQueen who seems to have lost his way he needs to decide either a block buster crime drama or an issue led movie a mixture of two genres is destined for failure.
