    This movie is fun. It's incredibly small, fast paced and comical.

    Ben Wheatley takes a simple premise and blows it out of proportion with characters too egotistical for their own good. Everyone is greedy, stupid, petty and arrogant, which makes for a surprisingly fun ride.

    Goddamn this movie was dumb. 

    This may have been one of the most horribly directed, fuckedly written piles of shit-squirts I've seen in a long time. No, seriously. The 50 Shades movies have better direction, and are at least accidentally comical.
