  • 2 stars "Yet again Burton takes a movie with a decent script, good performances and flops it. The movie was filled with poor editing, pacing issues and Burton's continuous inability to relay a story. Amy Adams was great. The movie, for such a powerful story, just seemed boring."
  • 4 stars "Good acting and interesting story. It is worth the rent."
  • 5 stars "Incredible cast and story. Also the cinematography was impressive."
