    Did I just watch the start of an Ocean's 11 cinematic universe? I'm totally cool with that.

    Huh. I never realized that in addition to inspiring so many sleazy 70s giallos, Hitchcock actually made one himself.

    ★★½

    Ugh. The faux one-take structure was pretty cool and there's some good-to-great performances, but overall I found it pretentious, boring and a little bit smug.

    ★★

    Michael Bay tried to make a Coen Bros style black comedy, but it's missing humanity of a Corn Bros movie. Aside from The Rock, who is great as always, most of the characters are too unpleasant to care much about. It also feels mean spirited and in bad taste considering it's based on a true story.
