Awful...awful...awful. Ryan Gossling was pretty good. So tired of waiting for Bradley Cooper to be a good actor. He is (in three words) Very Bad. This movie was a waste of time and money!! STINKS!!!

Intense Father/Son Drama in 3 Acts

By pedsarq
Written March 31, 2013
What a great film! The story has 3 distinct parts, or call them Acts, that explore two very different father-son relationships. The fathers are well played by Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. Gosling plays a carnival motorcycle stuntman who finds out he has a son and makes an admirable attempt to become a part of his life. Unfortunately, he chooses to try his hand at bank robbery to make the money necessary to woo his ex-girlfriend. It's difficult not to care about him and his plight despite his crimes. He ultimately collides with a cop played by Bradley Cooper and the story then focuses on Cooper's character for the remainder of the film. However, such a collision has consequences and there's plenty of residual damage that gets passed on to the sons of both characters in the 3rd Act. Cooper is excellent in this role. Some of his lines were delivered with an eerie similarity to the character he portrayed in Silver Linings Playbook, but that's a positive here.

Wasted time

This movie was terrible all around in spite of the goodlooking leads. The worst acting role of the year was the guy playing Brad Cooper's son. It was pathetic and ruined an already bad movie.

A tale of fathers and one act of justice that can change everything, leaving up a legacy of sins, and confusions about what's right and wrong anymore.

A tale of fathers and one act of justice that can change everything, leaving up a legacy of sins, and confusions about what's right and wrong anymore. EXCELLENT storytelling (very unexpected, that I can guarantee you). Pacing is a bit off. 20 mins cut off might have made it worth owning in my collection.
