    Whalberg plays some fella who gambles loads of dough for no apparent reason - he owes criminals then gets given the money to pay for it by his ma but gambles that as well, for no reason. I like Brie Larson, she's nice, like her more than this film.

    Manipulative, boring, emotionally simplistic drama directed by Steven Spielberg. The film is way too long, as usual with directors like Spielberg, he thinks he is making an epic for the sake of making an epic so it's very long winded. I'm something of an animal lover, but i gotta be honest, i didn't give a fuck about this fella or his horse.
