Overrated and overhyped
Pretty good movie overall. First half was nothing special but it got better as it went along.
if their story seems completely bonkers, almost like a feverish work of fiction, you ain't heard nothing yet.
Ok. It wasn't in tears, but I felt surprised about how sweet the movie ends up being.The movie is not complicated at all. Its pretty straight. A simple action/crime story (with an insane amount of suspension of disbelief needed).What makes it better than mediocre for me is the cinematography and the editing. A simple story like this one could've dragged without a proper editing helping to entertain in the more mundane parts.Don't expect complicated storytelling and you'll be satisfied
Loved this, superb story grips you early on. Affleck is excellent. Great little twists towards the end , you will love this one if you like clever movies with some decent action.
What a movie .. Awesome ..hats off to director Gavin o Connor & ben affleck ..Such a impeccable direction ..Best once .Ben affleck deserve oscar for such outstanding performance ...Too powerful & engaging .. Don't miss this awesome thriller ..
I am not a fan of Ben Affleck, probably because he looks like my ex- brother-in-law. However this is the best movie I have seen him in. I love this movie and I agree with all the good reviews it got. The negative reviews I can't believe. My ex-husband was a CPA and while we were married all those guys would have loved this movie. He would have too but he passed away in 2015 so he didn't get to see it. One way I Judge a movie is how many times I'll watch it on cable. Whenever this is on I watch it! It's far better than most of the stuff that's on. The first time I saw it I was so impressed with it that I wished I had seen it at a theater. I enjoyed reading all the trivia notes about this on IMBD and it looks like they really researched everything intolved in it. All the actors did a great job too especially JK Simmons and the girl who played Dana. ( I'm a senior citizen and can't remember her name right now and if I turn back to the page I'll lose this review!). Really everyone was terrific including the boys who played young Chris and Braxton. I wonder if there will be an upswing in autistic boys getting training in martial arts!
