This has to be one of the worst films ever made. My thoughts are that Ryan Gosling (who is a terrific actor) must have owed a huge favor or was paid an obscene amount of money to star in a C rated film. I mean this was worse than sitting through a B movie. The acting was horrible, no plot, and hardly any dialogue. Don't waste you money or time.

This movie is a Refn movie. it uses colors and set pieces that are just as important as the characters. You really want to see how things end the second you start the movie. and with everyone talking about the violence i'd say that this has the realism to it that makes it brutal. where as movies like Fast 6 had tanks crushing civs to death. so yeah that is my two cents.

These are good descriptions for this movie. Very different from what most people are used to and most probably wont get it. The Refn style wonderful coloring and lighting return in full force here which add to the other worldly mood that takes you away. A dark tale with dark actions which all stay with the Refn style we have come to love. Not earth shattering good like "Drive" but enough of that style to be good. The music is slightly more subtle than I'd like it to be but it still shines in places.

It trys to be deep and artsy. Well, if you want to see people move at a snails pace and slice and dice at nearly every turn, go see it. Ryan Gosling is pathetic in this nothing of a movie. He's a talented actor but this garbage will not advance his career one iota. He must have done it for the money. The story is really convoluted and almost impossible to follow. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!

Ryan Gosling needs a new agent! If he picks another project this bad, he won't have any career left. I see virtually everything that comes out and this has to be one of the worst films I've seen in years!!!!!
