great potensial,bad pay out

Mr minkows story must be like standing on the gates of heaven for a screenwriter and director, but when they make a mockup on a mockup, then they have made a movie ponzi scheme , because this film and this acting were and felt really bad. it has so many inconsistencies, it is like a bouncing ball bouncing pretty random from here to there to everywhere .

there are absolutely no timeline presented, that are usually ''all inclusive'' in most biographic movies. you can without doubt see the age differences, but why not tell the audience when and where things happened. all i can say is that the plot, story and acting are fraudulently and coningly well done, the main cast have no grits nor guts at all.

there must have been a question about bad finances when producing this film, im sorry to say that most of the ''stars''-actors have shrunk into dwarfstars, and not a white one, they are brown, cold and weak because all their explosive energy has been used. i might insult, but mark hamill reminded me of yoda in star wars in one of his hugging scenes,do you see the resemblence??? if i had the money and were the producer i wouldve set all in on tom cruise,still ''young'' and good looking, and still full of energy.

as a filmproduct most of my stars goes to the great camera work, and some of the less familiar actors, like minkows wife,mistress and school friend. i can also say that i will not attend a second screening on this one.
