I was just wondering what peoples thoughts on this movie where. I just saw it and I have to say that it was a huge disappointment for me. Perhaps the worst ending to a movie that managed to get me to the ending (can't comment on the movies I turned off half way through). I didn't find anything that compelling about the characters, the character arcs, or the story in general.
Yet the hype machine was in full effect for this one. Rourke gave a solid performance, but it was limited by the story itself. The main thing that got me was that the conflict in the movie wasn't fully developed, leaving me personally unfulfilled. A lackluster story with characters I don't really connect with equals bad movie in my opinion.
