This was a bad movie. There is nothing unusual about a bad movie, they happen all the time, what i found very unusual was that Michael Mann directed a movie this bad. The story was all over the place, the action and technical explanations made very little sense and were hard to follow. Most of the plot was ridiculous and the scenes moved all over the place, very often disconnected to the previous scene or making no sense at all. On a number of levels this was quite a bad movie. Considering Micheal Mann directed and wrote the movie “HEAT” which came out 20 years ago I was quite surprised that this movie was as bad as it was.
Avoid this movie at all costs. See American Sniper this weekend or Selma, which are much better uses of your time.
