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.

This has to be the worst movie I have seen in a long time. I don't even remember what movie was worst than this thing, but I'm sure there must be one out there somewhere. I saw that the reviewers generally gave it a good rating so I went knowing that I don't agree with reviewers too often. Boy I should of followed my gut on this one and saved my money. Brad Pitt and the rest of the actors did an ok job but the story, directing, and cinematography were so bad that 10 minutes into the movie I was thinking about leaving. Then Brad showed up and added a little spark and I stayed till the end hoping it would get better. It never did. Do not waste any money on this thing.

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.

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
