    This was absolutely the best movie I will never watch again. Ryan Reynolds was terrific, and the whole movie was extremely well done, but...way too emotionally stressful to call \"enjoyable.\" I would still call it an outstanding piece of cinematic art. Highly recommended.

    It was an ok movie but it would have been a lot better without all the political crap
