Horrible mish-mash!

A valiant attempt at making three different movies and cramming them into one. Unfortunately, a failure. Terrible dialogue, plot holes, serious lack of commitment to a single vision. Movie started like a Zach Snyder action movie, then changed to an Untouchables remake, then turned stupid. The acting was totally phoned in and campy, but not on purpose. Sean Penn and Giovanni Ribisi were the only good things about it.

Noir? Action? Graphic?

I still didn't get it. Lots of recalling of famous movies, but characters with little or no depth. Dialogue ridiculous at time? (Emma Stone at the bar with Ryan Gosling one, for example, Really??)

I don't see what the Critic's are thinking. I found the movie entertaining, full of shootouts and action, plus Sean Penn really nailed being a bad guy (and I don't generally like him as an actor). I say Go.
