    One of the most juvenile and unfunny movies I've seen in a loooong time. Vincent D'Onofrio didn't even seem to be trying. I wanted to shut the movie off after 10 minutes but my stupid self-imposed rule to watch every movie until the end had me rolling my eyes through almost every scene.

    Ugh. The movie plays out in real time as a weapons deal goes bad. The humour is supposed to be found in the bumbling characters but I just found myself annoyed at how inept everybody seemed to be. The movie was only 90 minutes long and I still felt like it dragged on. It was like someone tried to take a Tarantino movie but stripped out all the interesting dialogue and story. Suffice it to say, I think this one is worthy of skipping.

    ★★★½

    It's one of those films that you go into pretty much knowing what to expect. A pretty star-studded cast, considering it's a mindless action film. The film is colourful, the action delightful. The characters are a bit cliche. All in all, it hit the spot with no surprises.

    I'm having a tough time coming to terms with how I feel about this movie. First of all, the actors in it were great—Jason Sudekis, in particular. I think the hardest part for me is reconciling myself with morally uncomfortable characters and there are a couple in this movie. And of course, there's the inevitable suspension of disbelief at such a quirky concept. In the end, though, I was into the movie from beginning to end and felt compelled to see it through, which felt like a sign of a good movie. I guess I liked it.
