I saw it and expected it to be really good after reading reviews. Was especially impressed by the fact that it got 4 stars from Rolling Stone...


Turned out to be one of the worst movies I'd ever seen. The whole audience was booing at the end and multiple groups left early. My friends and I thought there had to be more to it...like we were somehow missing something...I really don't understand...it gets all these rave reviews but it just absolutely sucked.


Interested to hear what other people think.

Ah come on...


It wasn't the best movie ever, but it didn't deserve to be booed. I understand that Cronenberg is not the type of director that everyone will enjoy, but booing? Come on.


I thought Ed Harris was great in it, and Viggo Mortensen was especially riveting in his role as the dad/ex-assassin.


Like I said, it wasn't the best movie ever, but definitely watchable and enjoyable. I'd give it a 3 1/2/5 stars.
