  • Fine actors are let down by a comatose script and wayward direction in this retro crime drama. show more

  • The ‘70s recreation is reasonable -- there are plenty of vintage cars and pop tunes of the moment -- but the characters never register beyond the surfaces of the scenes despite being equipped with long-festering resentments and grudges. show more

  • While Canet's direction can't be said to be all over the place, the movie never settles into the groove it so dearly aspires to. show more
