- Meh. 3/15/2019 12:00:00 AM by srwenk
Honestly I can barely watch it, fighting the urge to turn it off since it's so close to being over.I have so many problems with it, I don't have enough time to list them. LolI will just sum it up, 5 'best of the best' military men would not have made those 20+ cascading cluster fudge of bad decisions.It was just not good.
- Great potential, unused. 3/13/2019 12:00:00 AM by ajaytejthalari
I'm a huge fan of Ben Affleck and Oscar Isaac. So, this movie was a must watch for me.
Character building was kinda okay. The Director could have improvised on it and made the characters more interesting by going deeper. Sometimes you feel like, is this person really who I think he is, essentially confusing us about the whole motive.
The Thrill factor, well the things that happen in the movie were either obvious or confusing. When the Movie is in the momentum of giving us chills, it suddenly stops and takes a downhill.
The Actors were SPLENDID. But, an Actor can only do what the Director tells him/her. The Direction was meh...
A ton of things in the movie could be improved. The Director only gives us a quick glance at details and immediately cuts to unnecessary talking.But loved the Concept of the movie, Greed, especially for Money.
Disappointed. Expected more.5 stars for the 5 actors and 1 star for teaching us what greed for money can do to us.
- Lacked the luster the trailer promised 3/14/2019 12:00:00 AM by TheTopDawg
The story premise and casting were great, but the slow pace and lack of anything really exciting in the screenplay (except for a few scenes), didn't hold my interest where it should've been. The 125 min length was too long, and had the film been edited/cut down to 90 mins with a faster pace, the long dragged out story would have been more interesting and exciting. The directing and cinematography was decent, but I feel the director failed to direct his cast properly to get the much needed emotions from them. Entertaining? I guess. Would I see it again? Nope. Would I recommend it? Probably if you have nothing better to watch. It's a missed opportunity, and a 7/10 from me
- Where Do The Crazy High Ratings Come From 3/13/2019 12:00:00 AM by ricochet93-369-308802
This movie at best is very average. Ben Affleck again demonstrates is non acting ability. He's almost the same character in every movie.There's nothing in this you haven't seen before.
- NETFLIX DOESN'T GET IT. AGAIN. 3/14/2019 12:00:00 AM by marcshank-388-582372
You know, in spite of the stars and writers and director, you can just tell before you even watch it that Netflix doesn't even come close to managing a production. They think they can put a hot director (who's never done action) and a hot writer (if there was a weak part to "Zero Dark Thirty" it was the writing) and stars dialing it in (Affleck looked like he did the movie at gunpoint;Isaac was actually smirking through most of it). But the Netflix producers didn't have the experience and probably not the guts to pull up Chandor and get him to get the damn thing moving. The question for me is, how can they do so much original and not learn from movie to movie what they're roll is? Why haven't they hired HBO people away? How can an adventure movie like this so utterly suck?
