Not a very strong plot line, writing and dialogue was weak and there were many parts that were simply unrealistic regarding the Dept. of Justice's Witness Protection program.
(In addition, Tommy Lee Jones is much too old to play an 'active' FBI agent.)

Good concept and workman like delivery. It straddles a line between black comedy and parody. It doesn't hit the high notes like "Shaun of the Dead" did for Zombie movies. But it is funny and has very good moments.

This movie was awful. It is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The theme centers around the Robert DeNIro killing anyone that says something he does not like. There is no plot and it is not funny. I would have walked out if not for my husband wanting to stay. Horrible.

It's in English with an American lead cast, but it's a French film, viewing America through French eyes and having fun with it. The treatment of violence, and there is a lot of it, owes a lot Quentin Tarantino. Somehow the mayhem is not cringe-provoking. Think Kill Bill.
Dialogue is NY-NJ mobster all the way, and very funny.
So... it's not for everyone (just look at the mixed reviews) but I found it witty, extremely well acted by a great cast. It's a good story with wonderfully improbable plot twists.
Go see it.

A great cast.... and the worst writing imaginable. A few mildly funny moments, amidst violence so stupid and pervasive as to make it ridiculous. I can just picture Marty and Bob De Niro sitting around onset thinking up all kinds of funny gags. None of which work. Time for either retirement or finding good writers, Mr. S.
