An average movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a really nice cast involved, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though I have to agree with everyone else that the cast was indeed really good, to be honest, the story itself was decent but nothing really amazing. I mean, I have to admit that it definitely had some potential but there were just too many things that didn't really work. First of all, the whole concept of the 'drop' was interesting but just too limited. Apparently, the makers were aware of that so they did add another major plot about a dog and they tried to mix these 2 storylines rather awkwardly. Concerning the dog angle, it was a rather obvious gimmick to show that the main character was actually a nice guy and also to make sure that he would meet some girl. There were also a whole bunch of sub-plots which were all rather half-baked. And, yet, the cast was really strong. Indeed, Tom Hardy remains one of the most interesting actors of his generation. Same thing with Matthias Schoenaerts who managed to create a fascinating character in a just a few scenes and I could watch a whole movie only focusing on this mysterious guy. Concerning Noomi Rapace, she was once again so charismatic but it's a pity she usually ends up playing such thankless characters nowadays. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, I still think it is worth a look though, especially if you like the genre.
