3.7Overall Score

 

Outstanding performance by Christian Bale (much better than in ‘The Fighter) who takes it to the extreme. Jennifer Jason Leigh plays her usual role usually well. The twist however doesn’t measure up to the great build up though…

The Good

  • Dark, gritty and weird – in kind of a good way
  • Great Christian Bale who carries this whole movie
  • The usual performance by Jennifer Jason Leigh

The Bad

  • Somewhat confusing story
  • The movie is literally just living off of Christian Bale
