My husband and I both didn't like it at all. Would have turned off if watching at home. Good acting but WAY too many unnecessary F bombs.

This has to be one of the worst films ever made, if you happen to have been sucked in ask the theatre for your money back as I did. Disgusting and repulsive I give it MINUS 1,000 stars. It must of taken all of 30 minutes to write the script and a day or two to film this joke flick. Makes me rethink ever wanting to step back into a theatre. I'd rather stay home clean my house and do laundry before I subject myself to this Hollywood Trash again.

My husband and I left after 40 minutes. I was ready to leave after two minutes. Nonstop profanity. Bad plot. Brad Pitt wasn't even in it for the first 20 minutes and from what I was, wasn't award worthy.

Movie took forever to get going...in fact it never "really" did. Great characters and wonderful acting but story too slow. I blame the demise of what could have been a cult favorite because of the interesting characters on the director. Somebody please call Quentin Tarantino.

The trailer for this film makes it look like a free-for-all meltdown of criminal missteps that Brad Pitt comes in to clean-up with very large guns. In reality, this is a talking head movie that has what little action there is capsulized in brief, hyper-violent nuggets compressed between LONG stints of getting to know our notably-predictable rogues gallery, warts and all. It’s the longest (and driest) episode of The Sopranos ever. Fortunately, I generally like talkey films (it’s what I’ve come to appreciate in this era in lieu of actual storytelling). The film also rises above its stereotypes with great acting and a narrative that symbolically ties the capitalism and corporatization that runs - and ruins - our country into the actions of gangsters. This was all pretty cool. Well, until the hammer-driven sermon of the last five minutes. That was just preachy. All in all, a decent start
