    Haven't seen it, don't care to, and I've seen a ton of movies. It seems everywhere I go, everyone I see, this movie is being quoted. I've avoided it simply because it is likely overhyped and way too trendy for my tastes.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I didn't think it was all that great...

    Yeah, but your movie tastes are weird. I mean, this is coming from a kid who didn't even care for goodfellas

    Hey now! I am just trying to be as honest as possible.

    What was the name of that movie you strongly recommended?

    I finally watched this a couple of years ago, went into it expecting to like it since so many people had talked it up over the years ... and it was god awful. I get the impression a lot of people enjoy it as a mindless action movie because if you think about it at all it's actually really quite abhorrent and more than a little ignorant. The movie wants so badly to be deep and to get you thinking about vigilantism and it just fails completely.

    Later I watched Overnight, a documentary about the director, and the movie being so bad made a lot more sense.

    Even as a mindless action movie it fails, every action scene consists of the brothers pulling out their guns, shooting the bad guys, and the bad guys falling over. I seriously don't get the love for this movie.
