Decent plot and terrible acting by the leading roles Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Olivia Thirlby. Mr Rhys Meyers should have never left the pool table venues. He clearly does not have an acting background... It seems to be more worried about his looks in front of the camera, overacting in every scene and concentrating on making his voice sound charismatic rather than making his character believable. A movie that I have not been able to finish, had to skip scenes, and end up giving up. What I fail to comprehend is why Mr. Rhys Meyers keeps getting roles when clearly he lacks the acting principles.
One of the biggest disappointments of the season. Every important script decision betrays the conviction of wanting to entertain the viewer. A set of timely excuses so poorly prepared (and executed), that everything ends up being very monotonous and letting you awaiting something extraordinary to happen.
