Wow, this movie is depressing...especially if you are unemployed, as I am. The movie doesn't seem to completely condemn the horrible line of work of the two protagonists. And it has a weird ambiguous ending. Has he learned something or not? Is he going to change his life?
Wow. I obviously missed something. I read all the glowing reviews and maybe my expectations were unrealistic. The concept is interesting and novel, but I can honestly say I can't remember being more bored. The kids just don't offer any charisma or acting ability.
I'm glad it wasn't any longer than it was.

This was SO BORING! Avoid at all costs. The handsomest actor is immobilized in a hospital bed the whole time, buried under a tone of make up.
It's painful to watch a bunch of assholes. The movie consists of a bunch of assholes and one naive nice guy. The assholes mistreat the nice guy and the nice guy suffers but it all ends happily ever after. Painful, and boring, too...
Wow, I think I like the harsh negative critics better than this... whatever this is you wrote. You think it's the weakest entry in the series? Fine (although I absolutely do NOT agree with you and would love to angrily rant to you why), but honestly, you're a critic, review like a critic! Where's your evidence it's the weakest entry in the series? I'm a 14 year old teenager and even I wrote a better review in my website than you!
It stunk up our house, did not see chemistry between Drew and Justin, raunchy seldom works...
I wish the critic would give some practical information and say where we can watch this film in the East Bay. There is nothing more frustrating than wanting to see a film but not being able to see it. Since this is the East Bay Express, it seems like the subject matter should be about something in the East Bay. All I can find is a movie time in a San Francisco theater. I wish the critic would say which dates it's coming to an East Bay theater. Thanks.
How on earth did Kevin Spacey, one of the best actors we have, get roped into this loser of a film? I was so excited to see it that I didn't even want to wait until it hit the East Bay and I traipsed across the bridge to the Embarcardero. I sat in anticipation for the whole couple of hours, waiting for the feeling that I was enjoying it. I never did. The movie never took off. No matter how well-done, there's just something off kilter about it, and not in a good way. It's hard to pinpoint the problem, or problems.
Terrible, terrible, utterly atrocious movie.
This is one of the worst pieces of trash I've ever seen. I've lost all confidence in Kelly Vance. It is unbelievable from start to finish and gets laughably worse over its unfortunately long running length. And it's violent, unncessarily. And we don't care about the characters. And there's no reason for its existence, either in the story or any sort of concept above that. It's simple trash and poorly done trash at that. On top of that the scenes that are supposed to be subtle (the original murder), meant to be nuanced (I guess), are simply confusing. For a better of review of this see the Chron or the CSM. It sucks bigtime.
nolan is overrated. memento is overrated. the dark knight is overrated.
that being said- leonardo is starting to look old. gonna have to start calling him leonard dicaprio. joseph gordon levitt was bad ass, and i now want to take ellen page out for ice cream. she was insufferable until i realized how sexy she is just now. juno is garbage, fyi.
but i digress. due to the success of inception we will be forced to suffer through more big budget unnecessarily self indulgent god awful rotten cinema. directed by that opiate for the masses of asses, nolan.
give me my money back. please.
O'Malley and entire family should be charged. Really think this is the first time this is happened? Contra Costa County is the most corrupt police force in the world as far as I'm concerned it's reasons like this that the mafia was invented
Can anyone tell me where all the green zones are in California please?
We've had oversite for many years. I not sure what it's supposed to accomplish. I remember the "riders" they were fired along time ago but what deficiencies in the department is the continuing oversight trying to correct?
That's a nice looking building. I wonder why the owner doesn't fix it up. Rent control? It can be very difficult to repair apartments while long term tenants live in an apartment. You can't do lead remediation while perplexed are living there. I guess the owner will be forced to evict?
Santa Clara County is one of the most corrupt Counties I have ever encountered. I am eligible for this amnesty program and they denied me. I sent in 4 applications and they denied me for different reasons each time, on one app they claim there was no citation under my name. It took them 8 months to deny me, to deliberately run down the clock. They said 14601.1 is not eligible because it was a reckless driving. Really? hmmm cause when I look it up that is a driving while suspended which is what this program is for.
I am so fed up with these people and the courts. I even have documents where SCC actually changed the dates to appear as tho I missed the cut off. Now where do you go with this proof. Not the DOJ or the Grand Jury. They are not interested in that.
