Incredibly boring and badly miscast. Ruffalo as a wrestler? A poodle could tear that beta wimp into pieces! Give us a break!
It never rises above the level of a made-for-tv movie from the 1980s. Boring and massively overpraised.
Boring movie. Shallow characterizations. No suspense. No surprises. The casting of the boring, hate-mongering sadsack Ruffalo is clue that they weren't really trying with this one. Pathetic soy-boy Ruffalo has to be one of the very worst actors ever.
Freaked me out!...a slow-paced thriller. Great performances by all, especially Tatum. Really well done.
So tired of Hollywood trashy films. This film is an insult to the Oscar "Best Movie" category. Carrell was wooden. C. Tatum mumbled and sulked throughout the whole fim. Strong suggestion of gay relationship was completely untrue according to real Mark Schultz. Female characters barely alive. Stop going to these films until Hollywood recognizes true genius like "American Sniper" and Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper.
omg, i wanted to walk out of this movie.. it was so friggen dull! i was sitting there thinking, this will get more interesting, this WILL get better..i thought that RIGHT till the end of the movie.. IT DID NOT. do NOT pay to see this movie!! seriously! wait till its on t.v. its very dull.
A movie that, if not based on a true story, would have been too weird for the screen. Although it suffers most of the film moves at a tepid pace the real interest comes from how we see John du Pont react to someone so far out of his world and understanding. Rich movie that I didn't really grasp onto the first time but look forward to seeing again.
Excellent acting, very gripping. What will the character do next? Stark realism. As I watched I realized I had read about the main character in the back pages of the newspaper years ago when this happened. Story does give light to the realism (sometimes destructive) that motivates young men. Somewhat therapeutic for many young men who are confused and want some clarity in their lives about what really matters. Again, excellent script and acting. Recommended, if you are ready for high level drama.
Depressing movie-dont watch it if u like movies that make u feel good when u leave.
What's with the awful make-up job on Carrell???
Fans of THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX will want to steer clear of this one.
I have noticed how some actors known for comedic roles tend to thrive in dramatic roles. Steve Carell is no exception. In fact, judging by how many people nearly jumped out of their seat near the end, not many were expecting him to be as intense as he was.
Tedious! I'm sorry but I just did NOT get this film. It was the slowest film I've seen in a long time. I was tired of it after an hour. The only redeeming thing was Channing Tatum's performance as a goon wrestler. Can't believe this is getting the rave reviews it has been getting.
Great movie. Such an interesting story with really good performances and cinematography. Truly enjoyed it.
