Josh: Wait, you mean Delaware, I thought that was dead.
Lockhart: That's resurrected, we need to clean up the Reynolds account in case those fucks at AML decide to do their job.

Visually gorgeous, but a lazy screenplay holds it back from greatness.
5 June 2017 | by jzathajeniousSee all my reviews

Gore Verbinski has created a visually splendid thriller/horror film, which creates a wonderfully foreboding atmosphere. However, what could have been a great film is marred by a convoluted screenplay that falls to pieces in its final act, and is riddled with plot holes. I waited patiently for all the pieces of the puzzle to fall into place (and with the running time approaching 2 and a half hours, it's quite a wait), yet ultimately I was left somewhat confused and underwhelmed by how it all played out.

I still recommend it for the wonderful cinematography and chilling atmosphere. But with some liberal editing and a tighter screenplay we could have had a real classic on our hands. Shame.
