Well unfortunately for Russell Crowe, his movie premiered the same weekend as HP7 Part 1…smh…bad move. If you had a chance to check box office sales, this movie didn’t even register on anyone’s radar this weekend, with opening weekend sales at a lousy 6.7 million. Well the question is was this a great film that was just overlooked? I’d have to say not. I mean it was decent. But a good portion of this 2 hour flick ran a bit dull, with Crowes character coming up with a plan to free is wife for most of the movie. I did however learn that you can find out how to do almost anything illegal thanks to you tube…ridiculous.
The movie didn’t actually pick up until he put hi plan into action. By then you were already 1 hour 20 min into the film.The action part of the movie should have started sooner because the movie was actually pretty great once they got things going. Eh I’d say if you are a Russell Crowe fan this movie is good for a matinee or rental…that’s about it. Rating C+
