This film surpassed Hoot (2006) as having the worst domestic opening weekend of any film released in more than 3,000 theaters. It grossed just $2,715,384 at 3,049 theaters, for an average of $891 per theater - which also gives it the distinction of being the only film released in over 3,000 theaters to open with less than $1,000 per theater.

Sometimes the style over substance tactic works against a film, like this year's The Gentleman for example. But for some reason, I found The Rhythm Section to be well-done, even if the film doesn't feel as complete nor as captivating as the trailer seemed to indicate. However, I continue to applaud Blake Lively, who has great taste in projects, and always takes on new and challenging roles each time out. Visceral camera work, a few nice twists, and a great lead performance saves The Rhythm Section from being another January bust.
