Thanks a lot acorns!
Your kind generosity keeps the reviews coming!
Insufferable, poorly paced, sterile melodrama with a double side of gore.
Guillermo del Toro has forgotten how to make movies.
Del Toro's script co-writer Kim Morgan shoulders some of the blame.
Bradley Cooper is awful. Cate Blanchett is awful.
Richard Jenkins and Rooney Mara fair little better.
Paint dries faster than this movie gets around to the matter at hand, namely a high-stakes con game run by an overreaching mentalist.
Rated R. 150 very long mins.
