90 minutes i will never get back!
7 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

I too never write film reviews however this film is so bad that i felt compelled to write this. The premise is a good one, the actors are good. However the director who has seen probably one too many Terence Malick films thought who needs a story when you have the characters inner monologue. Do not watch this garbage. Michael Sheen is in this film for about 5 minutes however if you watched the trailer you would think he was the main character! I am still of the opinion his character was shot to stop any possible interesting storyline happening. Its absolute drivel of the highest order.
