I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Sean Penn and Mel Gibson, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it has been ages since both actors had a critical or commercial success (at least, Gibson had more luck as a director with ‘Hacksaw Ridge’) but I’m afraid this movie turned out to be another flop.
