    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Ribisi and Macht are sleaze incarnate. James Caan, as a conniving lawyer, and Rade Sherbedgia, as a Russian crime boss, are even more cootified. Best of all is Wilson, digging into his juiciest role in years and putting a human face on this mesmerizing morality tale, a journey into the toxic heart of the American dream. show more

    Sober and dispiriting, tense and morose. show more

    Think "Boogie Nights" meets "Casino," though it's not likely to make the lasting impression of either seminal film. show more

    Director George Gallo seems so enamored of Martin Scorsese's Mafia classic, he's borrowed everything from the use of voiceover to the Stones-centric soundtrack to the insistent editing style. What's missing, alas, is the artistry. show more

    Decidedly stimulating in its own right, at least in the early going. show more

    Wilson's unflappable, deeply sympathetic affect and aging golden-boy visage have a very Jack-like smoothing effect on the story's rough patches. show more

    Luke Wilson, who has appeared in a long run of bad movies, seizes on his juiciest role since "The Royal Tenenbaums" here. show more

    Who would have believed a film with this much skin and reckless, life-threatening excess could end up a rather dull muddle? show more

    Luke Wilson's terrific performance renders an uneasy hybrid of crime drama, comedy and ecommerce far more compelling than it otherwise would be. show more

    This highly fictionalized look at the Wild West early days of Internet porn is off-putting in almost every way, with sledgehammer stylistic flourishes (incessant shaky-cam; a Rolling Stones musical cue as ironic comment) and dialogue that sounds like it was written in a testosterone-fueled haze. show more

    The problem is that Christopher Mallick the Middle man of Oxymoron Entertainment (see money man) Producer also owned Epassporte. Epassporte is a payment processing company that went belly up. Some Payment Processors Embezzle their customer funds in order to pursue their projects like Movie Making. Mallick owns both Epassporte and Oxymoron Entertainment. Millions of dollars are missing from Epassporte, about the same time that Mallick and Oxymoron Entertainment made this movie. John Chris Mallick of Oxymoron entertainment agreed to pay me back my money, and then he disappeared and remains in hiding. The middle man is more like a con artist. http://whoscammedyou.com/scams/1909/Chris_Mallick_aka_John_Christopher_Mallick Never trust a scamming middle man. Skip the movie.

    Gosh, people! RATE IT for heavens sake! Just saw it and it's fantastic! One of the best we've seen in a while. Highly recommend. (We saw it in a small town in an arts theatre, by the way)

    We in San Diego can't see the film. We are kind of a small town far away from the Hollywood. They must not have done this one to make money.

    To me, weak. Save your money for a better film like inception, salt, expendables, etc.
