Director: Oliver Stone
Writers: Shane Salerno, Don Winslow, & Oliver Stone (Based on a novel by Don Winslow)
Entertaining moments but mostly a mess. Nice to see Stone getting sort of back to his over the top craziness. I guess they moved it to Summer to be counter programming but it just doesn’t seem to fit in July. Maybe if I saw it on a Fall night my reaction would’ve been different. I enjoyed the hell out of Del Toro. He is always nutty and entertaining. Just feels a little too flabby, especially in the middle, with some bizarre twists and a very strange ending. It was OK and I give Universal credit for trying it as a Summer movie. I’ll bet it plays better on home viewing.
