Bml93's Film Diary for 2014: January & February (52 movies items)
I'm not familiar with the book this film is supposedly based on, and from what I've come to understand, it's probably a good thing that I haven't read it. That being said, I think the first half of the film is very generic and rather dire.
Luckily things gets a lot better during the last half, when the scope of it gets a bit smaller. The last climatic scenes are very good, and easily more engaging than the big, chaotic action sequences. Brad Pitt is good.
