Lightweight but in a fun way. It's attempts at trying be some sort of Statement On Capitalism can be pretty smug and trite at times but credit must be given to dark sense of humor, unique score and nice looks. Pike is having about as much fun as you'd expect (seeing how she's basically playing Amy Dunne again but as a lesbian instead of a straight woman and with less nuance) but Peter Dinklage emerges as the film's true MVP as a particularly quiet, intimidating and emotionally reserved gangster.

And despite the complaints made about the ending, I thought it was pretty fitting and a nice subversion of what we thought how it all ends. As I've said, it won’t change the world or anything but it's a nice piece of bitter candy to munch on.
