Wasn't sure about this one, but I wanted to know what Mel Gibson was up to these days. I hadn't seen anything with him in it recently. This movie does not disappoint. Watching Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn trade dialog is a joy. The movie is slow and methodic but never uninteresting. It pays off in the end. I liked it because it was filmed with a steady traditional style like the way they used make movies in the 70's. A character driven story with slick camera shots that you can focus on and enjoy.
I bought this movie initially because of the actor line up, actors I enjoy watching. The movie did not disappoint me. The theme of this movie was very realistic and I could see why people do what they normally would not do. I enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to my friends. I do not want to give the ending away but it made me sad. Enjoy!!!
