Although critics will probably rip this film apart for being too original, you should still see this movie. Josh Brolin is excellent! I appreciated the character development. The ending was awesome. Of course, Ryan Gosling never disappoints. The cinematography was neat. I think they could've chose a better female to play Emma Stone's part, but all in all - go see it.

Action packed! The dramatic tension between the main players makes you hold your breath throughout the movie. Excellent script and direction- true to events and period! The best shoot-em-up since Pacino's Scarface! Great, believable character performances. Sean Penn plays Cohen as he was- sinister, smart, and without conscience. Bullets flying everywhere! Not for kids, or the faint of heart. A must see!!

What a great movie! I wasn't expecting much since the critics haven't been too kind, but this was such a great movie. The acting was good, the plot was good, and the action was phenomenal. Sure, it's a little predictable but it's exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The love story is great and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience

The acting was good. The story line was good.. The movie did not need all the violence.
I would rent it and fast forward through the violence.

Sean Penn very good in his role as well as the rest of the cast. Sometimes close to more than needed, ut doesn't detract from the movie as a whole. Nick Nolte better than I expected as Parker. Well worth it.
