This is a slow burner of a film. If you want action, cgi and mindless entertainment this is not for you. If on the other hand you want good plot, brilliant acting and a story that not only makes you listen, think and above all thank god you are not in this world then this is for you. Unfairly slated by poncy critics and people reared on mindless so called entertainment i think time will look back on this favourably. Remember how Blade runner was panned on initial release, the same will happen here. I loved the dialogue, the characters and the sense of dread and doom that the second half of the film lead you into.The cast are all excellent but special mention must go to javier bardem and in particular brad pitt for his arrogant, i know exactly what i,m doing performance. A dark adult film, not for many i agree but i for one loved it and urge anyone who enjoys not being treated like an idiot to savour and enjoy.
