A phenomenally acted movie that paints a really dark, grimy picture of middle class America. While it is captivating all the way through, the movie is a little too slow for its own good, with many events taking a little longer than they should. Definitely a movie worth watching for the performances alone.
I like that James Franco is doing these weirder roles now, and he's quite good in this movie, but most of everything else is very by the numbers action movie. Don't get me wrong, I love that kind of stuff, but there just wasn't anything really exciting I could take away from this movie after leaving the theatre.
