Everything that should be great about Baz Luhrmann's GREAT GATSBY are actually the let downs.
Visually the decadent, excessive 1920's should work well for Baz Luhrmann's over-the-top eye, but this film is really ugly in places. Loads of green screen and dodgy CGI landscapes.
The modern soundtrack is distracting and never quiet sits right.
Most surprising of all is that Leo Di C doesn't steal the show as Gatsby and is actually out-shone by Joel Edgerton.
Leo's performance is a bit wet and creepy.
