    ★★★½

    I was totally engaged for the first hour, performances were great, driver and gaga were sizzling and the pacing was spot on but round about when Jeremy Irons dies and we start getting a lot more of Jared Leto (who almost ruins the movie for me) it starts to lose a little of its flavour. Pacing starts to falter for a while though it finishes strong.
    You can imagine what Scorsese would have done with this and it could have been a classic.

    It's lavishly shot, I laughed out loud when Uncle Junior said "he don't have the makings of a varsity athlete" and I got chills when woke up this morning started to play at the end but otherwise I was underwhelmed.

    Comes off like a family friendly version of Heat. For Forrest Tucker the action is the juice.

    "There's two of us and three bags, do you see where I'm going with this?"

    "Not at all."

    A gem of a movie filled with some superbly subtle comic moments as well as being incredibly moving on the whole. Great performances from all the main players here.
    A film that is beautifully, tragically and honestly human, depicting our capacity for love but our incapacity to show and share it properly.
