This movie never makes up its mind as to what it wants to be so in the meantime, it drags you through a subtle political discourse that sticks out like a sore thumb coupled with endless sea of graphic violence that rarely adds to the film's attempted plot points. The whole think felt like, sort of, David Lynch trying to do a hitman's version of Lost In Translation, failing miserably in the process.

First off, I am sick of paying to see a movie with Obama in it!! I really don't want to pay for a movie and have to sit and listen and watch him. Secondly, this movie was slow, had too much dialogue and was altogether predictable. It was a waste of my money.

This pretentious film tries too hard to copy David Mamet and Quentin Tarantino and falls flat. Poor acting from Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini stand out. Pitt simply isn't believable as a supposedly scary mob assassin and Gandolfini lumbers through his two scenes. Which brings me to ask, what was the purpose of Gandolfini's character anyway? He is in two small scenes and then disappears - which is related to another complaint - very poor character development. Not to mention that the pacing is way off - and was bored stiff.

Boring and Stupid! I didn't realize Brad Pitt can't get A movies any more. We went because we figured it had to be good with him in it. But bad signs led to wrose expectations. Going to a moive with only a few attendees isn't a good sign. Watching some people leave and not return is another bad sign. I kept looking at my watch wondering when it was going to end. But we always hang in there in case it gets better. It never did. Suddenly it was over. Didn't make sense. Very slow and boring all through the movie. No more Brad Pitt movie for us. He's done.

This movie will take it's rightful place in the Hollywood Walk of shame. It has a horrible ending, poor plot line, and a muddled Political Message. According to this movie, America is a bad, bad place full of mindless assassins and evil poorly defined corporate entities. But, if you are going to denigrate this great country do it with a much better movie than this piece of Liberal Biased Crap.
