Genre: Crime, Drama and Thriller
Conclusion: 3/5
In the first half of this film I did find it really slow to get moving but then gradually the film got better as it went along. The problem I had with this is that I didn’t feel sorry for any of the characters or even remotely like any of them. With this being a true story I feel like I should have liked it more. None of the story-line seemed to have grabbed my attention. There were a lot of scenes that seemed a bit odd to me and therefore would have been better edited out. It is a 2 hour film which it really doesn’t need to be. Even though Andy Garcia didn’t have much to do he was ready to accept any role in order to do a movie with Clint Eastwood. The actress who plays Clint Eastwood’s ex-wife is very good in this as she doesn’t have an easy role to pull off but does it very convincingly.
