I have never had more fun watching a film before in my life.
The quality of Will Smith’s acting—juxtaposed with bad writing, a clumsy narrative, awkward, inconsistent cinematography, and some real lackluster supporting performances—made this all the harder to enjoy.
It just didn’t find its story, and it seemed so obvious given the subject matter that it would. Deserved to be a hell of a lot better than it was.
This film is a practical joke, right? Horrifically written, overacted, directionless, two-dimensional nonsense.
The only time I’ve ever watched something on a recommendation from a friend, and felt upset enough to post a review. The friend got a stern telling off too. Just, ugh. Awful.
