A professional enforcer investigates the brazen robbery of a high-stakes mob poker game in this crime thriller directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) and adapted from a novel by George V. Higgins. Livid over the fact that three low-level thieves have crashed the entire underworld economy, the mob's top brass hires Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt) to see that the bandits pay for their crime. The closer Cogan gets to his target, however, the more he finds his mission complicated by an alcoholic hit man who's well past his prime, incompetent gangsters, and the playboy host of the inauspicious game. James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn, Richard Jenkins, and Scoot McNairy co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I went to see this abortion of a movie because I am a big Brad Pitt fan and Liotta and Gandolfini as well. BIG MISTAKE!! I can not remember a movie that I sat through,although most of theater walked out before it was even half over,that I wanted to kick myself for sitting there! Horrible
I didn't know much about the movie going in other than Brad Pitt was in it. So disappointing. Very slow, lots of close ups, F bombs and smoking. I'm still not sure what the point was. Not even worth a rental.
I've disliked many movies, hated others, slept through some, and zoned out through many. This is the first movie that I have ever walked out from. I could not find any redeeming value--there was no character I could connect with or cared to see for a second more, no tolerable dialogue, no plot, no notable cinematography, sound editing, or score to give me any reason to keep watching. As soon as my popcorn was gone, so was I along with the others in my group.
