An amiable diversion, though not a terribly memorable one. Elmore Leonard aficionados longing for a truly worthy sendoff of the master crime writer will have to look ahead toward the upcoming final season of Justified, and cross their fingers.

It doesn't quite transcend its own haphazard, impoverished story.

Well worth seeing, particularly for Leonard people.
