I'm baffled by the low rating and so many negative reviews for this movie. One person even said that the main actor "had no charisma", which really cracked me up. This is a really dark character in a really dark, really odd movie, not Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool. We're not meant to like this guy or find him charming, we're meant to be intrigued by his darkness and want to see where it'll take him.
I really loved all of the implied things that happened, even moreso than the things we could actually see. Except for that one scene which literally had me coughing for a full minute, I almost threw up. It's been about 2 hours and my throat still hurts. (And I do not have a week stomach for blood, violence, etc. This was something different.)
The movie started off really strong, but the second half didn't quite measure up to the expectations the first half set up, hence 7.5/10. I really liked it and could have easily watched another hour of what he's going to do next.
Although this movie does mention politics and has some anti-Trump references, it's not a political movie and you shouldn't let that deter you from seeing it.
