Anyone see this move yet?

I loved it. For as long as it was the ending still felt cut off short, kept me wanting more

I"m interested in it, but I"m afraid I'm gonna keep comparing it to Zodiac and inevitably feel disappointed.

Beyond awful. Spent too much time trying to incorporate minor characters. Tried to be smarter than the audience with every twist and turn, and it was quite obvious who the killer was. Not to mention, that Hugh Jackmon was very irritating since every scene all he did was scream and yell.

Definitely a must-see.

Best thriller I've seen since Zodiac although it is not quite on that level.

I enjoyed it.
I thought Jackman overacted here and there...
But if I had a loved one, let alone my daughter, missing, I'd be extremely upset.

Thought it was a solid flick. I do agree that Jackman seems a little over the top, but shrugged it off as a father desperate to find their child.

The only thing that did annoy me is that in 2.5 hours they didn't go in Loki at all. Why does he have the tats? Maybe I missed it completely, but I was left wanting more about him.

Movie was amazing.. I had it cracked half way as I made the connections but,
Quote:

I had no idea the old lady was the key component.. She was amazing and so where everyone. Not a huge Jake fan, But he was money in this movie.
I expected this performance by Hugh.. Dude, Should stay away from them crappy wolverine movies. Terrence Howard was money as well, He played the shattered guilty father to a tooth.

I liked it.



Jackman wasn't as annoying as people keep saying. His character was growling and snarling all movie long, but I liked his performance. He was a former alcoholic-Christian father stuck in a moral grey area all movie long.


Jake was solid. I liked his character, just a bit disappointed we couldn't find out more about his actual character's life.

The one thing that annoyed me was Jake's character's twitch all movie long. Obviously it was something they did on purpose, but why? They didn't even address it once.

Working long hours plus no sleep causes the body to act funny.
You start twitching and shaking, Wasn't surprised by it one bit.

The dude was basically the whole police force by himself, Spearheading the entire investigation.

I think the Jackman detractors have a point.

He was far too over the top for my taste. It is fine to show anger every once in awhile, but I would've liked to have seen some subtle emotions from his performance rather than hearing him repeat the same lines over and over again, as well as his Hulkish philosophy to smash anything and everything in his sight. That is not to say that it was a subpar display, but I think he tried a bit too hard to mimic the raw emotion that Penn showcased in Mystic River - although to little avail.

The acting sans Jackman was a strong aspect of the film. In particular, standouts included Howard and Leo.

Still was a big fan of the film overall.

Liked the film overall and thought Jackman was awesome.

The movie was WAY too long. There was a ton that wasn't necessary to the story and could have been cut. There were a couple of plot holes, which annoyed me.
