This movie was trying to be too much. It was like Mamet vs Tarantino vs Kevin Smith, and they all were on Qualuudes. Just tried to be a little too deep, a little too violent, a little too ironic. And it missed on all of them.

This movie killed me, but not softly. It drug from beginning to the end. This is the first movie I really did not like any part of.
I started to leave half way through. Didn't but should have.
I went because I like a number of the actors in it. That wasn't enough.

What happened to Hollywood writers? Where they unavailable for this? This was the most uninteresting mobster/heist movie I've ever seen. Great actors. Great cinematography. But what about story? What about clever dialog? Not here folks.
The writing was lame. Just boring rambling in a wannabe Tarantino sort of way. Nothing new, clever or funny in the "black comedy" this was supposed to be. Pitt was good as usual as was the rest of the cast but the script was not worth the effort.
Some interesting visuals. That's about it.

Terrible movie - the theater should be embarrassed to charge for this DOG. Thought because Brad Pitt was in it, it would be worth seeing. It was VERY SLOW, VERY BLOODY - truly can't think of ONE redeeming this about this film. If the goal was to show an extremely seedy side of life it succeeded - that's the only thing it succeeded in doing.

Don't waste your time, we walked out after 20 minutes of absolutley nothing happening. One of the worst movies I 've ever seen.
