You really gotta let yourself sink into this one! Let time go. Join in with the characters, sit in the room with them, and journey through the motions together.
I was going to write something along the lines of: The acts good. The dialog's good. The looks good. The angles. The everything about it but: too much talking. Sometimes it almost comes across as comedy. Sometimes it's just too dramatic. But sometimes... it really works.
It's a cops and robbers story that's maybe more like book than movie. Maybe it was based upon one. It takes a while to like, but when it's all over I'm glad I took that time! If you've read the Parker books you might recognize something in this. Some semblance of the same gritty crazy and uncompromising.
In the end: way better than I thought it'd be.
