Clint Says: Wait for the digital release and make someone else rent it



I'm not really sure what genre this movie is supposed to be. It has comedic moments, it has action scenes, and it has dramatic moments, but none of them are done in a way that makes for a good movie. So basically, it's a mess.


It is slow and supremely boring. I spent the last 45 minutes staring at my watch begging time to move faster. Edgerton and Theron are obnoxious to the point of being annoying. David Oyelowo does a good job in his role, but his character is so whiny that you just want to punch him in the mouth for about 2/3 of the film.


There are way too many moments of convenience and plot holes. Throw on top of that a story that doesn't really do anything and you have a theatrical bomb on your hands. 


This one is a complete waste of your time.
