    Crammed with interesting ideas, visuals, and people, but Stone buries it all in a s--tstorm of technique.

    There's scarcely a scene in which the actors, action and sound track aren't cranked up to maximum intensity.

    It's a close call here. I guess I recommend the movie because the dramatic scenes are worth it. But if some studio executive came along and made Stone cut his movie down to two hours, I have the strangest feeling it wouldn't lose much of substance and might even play better. show more
