    ★★★½

    A weeeeeeeee bit too heavy on the melodrama. Renner doesn't look old enough, nor wise enough to wax eloquently as often as his character does in this film. The tension built in the "reveal" scene is what shifts me to a positive review on this one. It was effective, memorable & convincing. Because I wanted to like this film so badly. (Sheridan has impressed with his previous writing), I think I'm still giving this one a little too much credit.....including all the white actors....who were not as genuine as their Native American counterparts.

    A video game director saw a lot of Vietnam war movies. Then, a big studio gave him a monstrous budget (pun shamefully intended) to make a Monster movie that looks like a video game look like a Vietnam movie.

    I'm ashamed of myself for siding on favoring it.....but some of it is kind of fucking cool.

    ★★★½

    A respectful, yet recycled nod to a classic. It enforces how good the original was. Much more could have been done with the comedic talents of Wiig & McCarthy as they are under-utilized. Kate McKinnon was the tepee ration of testosterone in the group and stood out as a character to look forward to in what surely will be sequels to come.

    3.75 out of five. My girlfriend fell asleep 45 minutes in. It's about that time that I noticed she was one of two total women inside the theater.
