two. I got way too many creepy vibes from the old man, the entire time. Especially because his acting was terrible so I didn't see any other point of him being on screen. It was so awkward watching this old Mickey pretty much... force himself onto her... since there was ZERO chemistry felt between the two. YUCK! I don't know why Mickey agreed to play the movie other than to get some on-screen action with Megan Fox. HIS CHARACTER LITERALLY CREPT ON HER THE ENTIRE TIME.... THROUGH HER WINDOWS, STALKS HER PHONE NUMBERS THAT SHE CALLS AFTER SHE LEAVES, TAKING PHOTOS OF HER, OBSESSING OVER HER, EXPLOITS HER AND HITS ON HER sooo many times. He was trying so so hard TO ROB THE CRADLE, after the girl leaves him, he finds another poor young girl victim. Just add wings, western theme, mobsters, circus background story for the girl, the old man fucked another guys wife and is now being chased background story for the guy.... There must've been some kind of wing kink in there too... the way they had Mickey molest her wings... YUCK. Poor girl... Having any girl get naked on screen for an old mans fantasy. It's just very distasteful. Her character seemed to be very insecure, sad and dependent... Yet extraordinarily beautiful... The only kind of person who would be vulnerable enough to be put into that situation. An old farts perverted dream. BARF. It wasn't interesting at all. Megan was the only beautiful thing about it, period. It's a shame these old men got away with an hour long movie. Megan needed exposure and money and the old men just love to provide a roll that degrades women even in such a tasteless movie as this one. This just exploits women, obsessing over their bodies, trying to fuck "hot young ass", slapping them around and feeling some claim over them as beautiful objects to be owned and used in their hands. Thank god I didn't purchase this movie or even a ticket. I would never talk about this movie again, after this. I'm so disgusted with it.

What could be worse than Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox making out in a movie?...well,I think Megan's acting takes the cake,definitely...

In this movie,she's playing an Angel for some reason and Bill effin' Murray is playing some mafia dude...sad,really sad.wasted talent at its best (of course,I am only talking about Mickey and Bill...NOT megan,ok?)

The film strikes out, big time. It feels like the director was trying to make a David Lynch or Terry Gilliam type of movie here. He even tries copying their styles and it doesn't work. In a weird way the film kind of reminded me of the movie, Indecent Proposal. The special effects weren't good here. The flying sequence and Megan Fox's wings looked too cheesy and fake.

There is a lot of miscasting here. I think they casted Rourke cause of Angel Heart. He was better in that film than this one. He has no on screen chemistry with Fox. Megan tries to do the best that she can on screen. Rhys Ifans is way over the top in his role. Bill Murray happens to be the best one here. He makes the film, watchable. I like when he plays villain roles, like in Mad Dog and Glory and Kingpin.

If you see this movie, then watch it for Bill Murray's performance.

1/17/2014: A good cast, but a bad movie. Not enjoyable in any way. Down and out musician falls for young hottie with wings, but she gets taken by a mobster type. Interesting, but not put together well at all.

Embarrassing,to even think that this could pass as a movie.

This film is strange, make no doubt about it, but it's not terrible. I enjoyed seeing Mickey Rourke and Bill Murray and Megan Fox was more competent than usual (maybe that's because she's playing a symbol rather than a character). There's some gorgeous cinematography and scoring and the premise is unusual enough to keep my interest.

A giant, steaming turd of a movie. All involved should be embarrassed.

Very slow, but I liked the end. Boy, has Mickey Rourke gotten UGLY!

If you gave me a movie with Megan Fox as Megan Fox with wings, Bill Murray as a gangster, and Mickey Rourke as a down-on-his-luck jazz musician, I'd normally charge into it grinning....which I did. Too bad the fact is a David Lynch directed adaptation of a Dashiell Hammet novel with none of the cool. The acting is generally good, especially by Bill Murray, but it's almost all nearly lost in the script and editing. The romance between Megan and Mickey alternates between sweet and weird, and while the angel thing could have been cool, the effects just make it dumb. Outside of Bill Murray, there's really nothing to recommend here so I'd say this is one film you can safely pass.

This film is a great find, I am actually surprised at some of the spew aimed at this film. I really enjoyed watching it, and it pulled a lot of emotion.

WOW.... these critics did not get it, nor did they watch it till the end!!!!!! OBVIOUSLY if you pay attention in the beginning you will completely understand and appreciate it!!! I am truly stunned by all the bad ratings.... that's like calling Wizard of OZ terrible because their are no such thing as talking lions.... LOL!.... Spoiler! HE IS DEAD! LOL!

Passion Play. So bad that you want to laugh in it's face, especially at the very end. Yet at the same time given the fact that it was one of the worst plots i have ever seen, it had some strange watchable factor. I think solely because Megan Fox is very easy to look at. Just unbelievably hot. Also I enjoy seeing Bill Murray and Mickey Rourke, but not in this. Myself along with the people who directed/produced it, recommend it to no one. A solid 2/10

Never seen Murray in a role I didn't like, the movie however was disappointing.

This cinematography was excellent, the music wonderful. The was an unexpected surprisingly engaging movie that lives up to its title. At heart this is a religious drama. It seems that because of the actors involved, the wrong audience watched this movie. That's the only way I can fathom the ridicuously negative reviews. The professional critics seemed for the most part missed the point entirely. This was an excellent film.

no one seems to get that it's the last dreams of a dying man, like an 'occurrence at owl creek bridge'
