Charlie Countryman ★★★½

Clearly an absolute mess of a film, but I thought it was a really enjoyable mess and the various cliched characters were actually a joy to watch. Shia essentially played The Beach's Richard, Evan Rachel Wood was every damsel in distress with a murky past we've seen before and Mads Mikkelsen yet another violent psychopath (hey, the man does it so well). Throw in some gorgeous dreamlike use of colour and music AND some great stunts to get a film that's only majorly let down by a 'meh' plot and terrible title. Sod the critics, I liked it.
