Just a quick one this. I mean how much can you really say about it. Ooh shiny, shiny and don’t they go fast. A film taking its inspiration from a game is never the wisest move. Sometimes, although not often, it can pay off, but more often than not, it’s generally believed to be a stupendously bad idea. Aaron Paul’s decision to follow up his Breaking Bad stint with this is one of the reasons this will have got the nod in the first place, and without him, it would have been even more one-dimensional than it ended up being anyway.
Directed by Pascal Chaumeil
Written by Jack Thorne from Nick Hornby
Starring Pierce Brosnan, Imogen Poots, Aaron Paul, Toni Collette
Honestly, I don’t know why this is. No, there isn’t a word missing from the last sentence. I just really don’t get the point of it at all. Firstly, I cannot get my head around who this is aimed at. If it’s young girls that like getting screwed over by young men who see them as nothing more than one of a harem of conquests, then okay, there is your audience. But really, young girls, enamoured as they may be with any or all of the men featured here, can’t possibly be that dumb, can they? If they are, well, I’ll take half a dozen.
