I thought this movie was well acted. As a Schenectady resident, I enjoyed seeing familiar places in a movie like the bank and Aumiller's pharmacy, etc. The scenes shot out in the woods were beautiful. I thought it was realistic in dealing with past police corruption in Schenectady.I thought the movie was sad and somewhat grueling to watch. It showed that when people make bad choices, they will have to deal with bad consequences. This is a movie for adults, not for children.

The character development was thorough and a little disturbing. As was the presentation of an unfortunate outcome of synchro destiny. I really fell for Ryan and Bradley's well acted characters.., this means I was convinced not enamored. Neither was lovable however each presented a sympathetic dimension to human frailty and bad behavior. Eva Mendes was also believable in her role.

Good movie with a few good twists and turns. Gosling was great and Cooper was excellent. Really shows the differences in society and how you cannot escape your past.

This film illustrates a story of a father and son over a span of 2 generations. Although it was a long feature, the directors/writers did really well with tying the story line together. The story is about a fathers and sons, as well as their trans-generational connection. I enjoyed this film a lot because Mendes, Gosling and Cooper (main characters) played each role so well! Just hang on until the end and you the film gives you proper closure!! A+!

It was quite long and although had a good story/premise, was too far fetched for me. Movie also felt like I was watching one movie the first hour and another movie the second hour. Was ok to see once but I wouldn't see it again.
