Seemingly made with the under-10 crowd in mind, the screenplay doesn’t bother to entice or interest any parents who might be in the audience.

The transgressive element is edgy and at times amusing, but it wears thin quickly.

The idiotic ending doesn’t redeem the uneven middle portion. The film's biggest problem is identified by the title.

With its flashy action sequences and Tarantino-wannabe vibe, the movie tries hard to be hip and edgy but ends up simply being uneven.

Poorly constructed endings can leave an unpleasant aftertaste even for movies that are otherwise mostly solid. That’s the case here.

An emotionally satisfying experience that brings to life a group of appealing characters and allows them to grow and expand in front of the lens.

A morality play that has much in common with the so-called “revisionist” Westerns of recent years.

Taking the focus off the Pacino/De Niro sequences and allowing the movie to stand on its own reveals a production of uncommon power and intensity.

Rewards lazy, inattentive viewing...another example of why chilling, thoughtful horror is an endangered species.

Artificial and reeking of white privilege, this is the kind of movie that causes people to mutter things about “entitlement” when speaking of the “Hollywood elite.”
