    It’s not surprising to hear about the turmoil on set centering around director David S. Goyer - that conflict shows in the movie. The script is complicated for no reason. The editing is horrible. The action just simply isn’t fun.

    Every actor looks miserable to be there, none more so than Kris Kristofferson who probably didn’t expect a third movie to ever exist. Ryan Reynolds’ smart-mouth banter falls particularly flat since we now HAVE to compare it to his work…

    The most complimentary thing I can say about this film is that it ISN’T the type of movie you think it is. The bond he has with the horse in central to the film, but it ain’t the whole story. Charlie Plummer is perfect in the role, and is as expressive of an actor as I’ve seen in a while (regardless of age). I’d recommend going on this journey with him, as emotionally wrenching as it may be.

    If this movie wants to show empathy for characters in West Virginia mining country (which it clearly does), why does it have two yokels on the heist team that are literally introduced while bobbing for pig’s feet? Add that unnecessary addition to the already bizarre Seth McFarlane cameo and you’ve got an Ocean’s-style movie that lacks what makes those movies so successful: tight pacing. That doesn’t mean NOTHING here works, for example:

    1. Daniel Craig having so much fun it…
