This film marks the second pairing of Jessica Chastain with Sam Worthington in two films released during same summer of 2011 period.
Underutilisation of a great cast.
With a great cast list, I jumped at this film with enthusiasm. This was
met with a complete underutilisation of some of my favourite actors.
For what it was Jeffrey Dean Morgan played his limited role well, Sam
Worthing over acted his role making him less convincing and Chloe
Moretz was vastly underused.
The plot is difficult to follow and some scenes seem completely
unnecessary and others feel as though there needs to be more detail.
The story overall suffers from a lack of telling and too much showing.
The main plot itself was rather predicable and ultimately let me
shaking my head in disapproval. Putting this aside there were some
parts of the film that made it interesting and the overall story was
good in premise.
I suppose I don't want to hate this film, because it has so much
potential. It left me feeling disappointed, but as a point of reference
of something done badly that could be brilliant, this is the perfect
