ReelViews for movies starring 'Jeremy Strong'
Using gallows humor, likable protagonists, and a variety of nonstandard filmmaking techniques, director Adam McKay maintains a high level of energy for more than two hours.
The overpolished screenplay and overuse of directorial flourishes hamper the viewer’s enjoyment of what should have been a pretty straightforward caper-style crime film.
The movie is all about the nonstop dialogue but, as a result of the way the words flow, they function as momentum builders.
Esoteric qualities don’t merit an unqualified recommendation for a production more apt to deliver frustration than gratification.
