Writer: Bruce Robinson
(Based on a novel by Hunter S. Thompson)
WOW! One of the more dull and pointless movies I can recall seeing. Pretty much nothing happens in it, it isn’t dramatic, it isn’t funny, it isn’t interesting. Watching this I am surprised it even got a wide theatrical release. I know Depp is a big star but just based on the films merits there is just nothing there. Apparently it sat on a shelf for three years or so before it was released. That sounds about right. As uneven and flawed as Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is at least it went full force with the crazy. Great cast. Boring movie.
