Man, what was Daniel Craig thinking last year? He was in two or three bad movies and one truly good one.

Anyway, I really wanted to like this movie, and I thought that the trailers were only showing a small percent of what was actually going on, but nope, that was not the case. The trailers pretty much gave the entire twist away in its first 30 seconds.

Well lucky for me I didn't watch the trailer, I just spotted the movie on Amazon prime and used some credit I had to rent it. Wasn't great, but I liked it ok, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weiss both put in strong performances, even if the movie feels a bit uneven. I feel it's a solid rental, maybe a sub $10 buy, which won't take long.

Is this movie great? Hardly. However it is very watchable IMO.

LOL, glad to be of assistance. To be honest, I really wanted to like this movie and maybe watchable for some. But honestly, it's great potential gone to waste, mostly because of studio heads meddling.

Movies are so rarely great art that if we cannot appreciate great trash
we have very little reason to be interested in them.
