I really have mixed feelings on this movie. The acting was good but the story was missing something. In places it was hard to know how much time took place since the last scene. The dialog in places was excellent but in places it lacked any punch or believability. This film to me went slow and steady with no real high point. As good as the four actors were in this film, they at times still had places were they fell short of the mark and made them hard to believe. I would give this movie an average rating. I am not disappointed I watched it but it won't be something I will watch again any time soon.
I got this movie because I thought Iíd get to see Natalie Portman naked. HumphÖ..no such luck. There, Iíve probably saved you a few bucks already. I didnít really like the premise of this movie, the plot was slow to come about and with the quality of the actors involved you would think it could have been a whole lot better. Iím particularly disappointed that Jude Law makes no where near the performance he did in Enemy at the Gate or Cold Mountain. Unless you just want to see Ms. Portman in her undies Iíd pass on this one. Watch it for free if you can.
