    So Bad.

    I did enjoy Aston Kutcher, I think he actually did a good job. But this was a horribly told story that really just repeated what we probably already knew about Steve and the team.

    The pace seemed to be more about hitting certain marks in his lifetime vs getting any real emotion into the story, especially between characters. Maybe I am expecting to much.

    One of my all time favourite films. Shot on a low budget and you would not have known it. The cinematography is so cool. I love the shot at the start where that is looking at both the wife in the kitchen and the guys in lounge through 2 doors.

    The film is slightly mind boggling but it just keeps on getting better / worse. Its a must watch.
