    Abysmal. Colin Firth is simply no action hero and 1/7th of the cast of Game of Thrones cannot save this mess. One feels embarrassed for everyone involved. A more interesting take on similar material is Centurion, starring Michael Fassbender. That film is darker and less silly.

    Three strikes:

    Atom Egoyan has no sense of pacing. The movie just drags. His biggest mistake is he completely misses a chance to bring the locale to life, like Richard Linklater did in Bernie with a more documentary-esque style. Which leads me to strike 2:

    A documentary would better serve this subject matter - and it has. There are SEVERAL good documentaries about the Memphis Three.

    Strike 3: Nobody wants to see Colin Firth do a Southern accent.

    This film might be under investigation for war crimes.

    Of course I would be biased in favor of a beautifully-shot stoner noir set in Los Angeles the 70s.
