    This is one of those year-end movies where I feel mildly befuddled by the overwhelming praise. I mean, on the one hand, I get it: there are a couple of really solid performances, the whole thing is shot and lit with expert care, it's occasionally darkly funny, etc. But the thing as a whole just doesn't work for me: I don't care for the melodramatic tone, I found the musical choices offputting even if I think I understood what Haynes…

After all, we never see him pull the trigger on that speargun, even if we see his finger curled around it in violation of gun safety etiquette. Kurt Russell's character seems to think he did, as do others on the set of THE GREEN HORNET. Rick, on the other hand, brushes that aside as nonsense. An unfair pejorative slapped on a war…
