This gritty yet kinetic indie traces two brothers on the run after a failed heist and the innocent bystanders who get in the way. Robert Pattinson is great in the lead, but equally convincing is Benny Safdie, who plays his developmentally challenged brother (and also co-directed the film with his... Read More »

The story here is very shaggy and doesn't get a satisfying conclusion, but honestly, the story is kind of secondary here. The Brothers Safdie are all about tone and mood, and that is what this film lives off of. Robert Pattison is truly outstanding here playing a horrible person and I love that they don't try to make him redeeming. This is a trashy and stylish thrill ride.

The main character isn't a very bright criminal. He's pushy, doesn't care about those that he manipulates into helping him. It's ironic how this criminal, despite being physically strong and overcoming many difficult feat, he is still limited by his petty and dishonorable way of being... Which in the end makes him helpless from making many stupid mistakes.

The music score is quite nice.

What a gem to come out of 2017! Nothing typical about this film from the performances, to the cinematography to the plot. Must like films that tend to the darker side of the spectrum.

It would do my ten year old nephew good to watch this. Crime doesn't pay.

Absolutely brilliant! This will one day be a classic on the level of reservoir dogs. The acting is top grade and pulls you into the dysfunction of the characters lives. Thought provoking, and you can't help but empathize with the family, and wonder what happened in their past to cause so much damage.

This drama/crime film is extremely exciting and will send you on an adrenaline rush. Through this film, Robert Pattinson revealed that he is capable of performing more serious roles as he portrays a character that is trying to frantically get his brother out of jail after they are busted from a poorly executed bank robbery. The realness and the intensity of his performance makes some parts of the film feel more like a documentary than a movie, causing you to feel like you are apart of the action. I will criticize, however, some of the franticness of it all which made the movie feel jump and sloppy at times. Nonetheless, I would rate this movie 4/5 stars @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Awful movie. I did not have a "good time" watching it.

Robert Pattinson did a great acting job: he’s convincing, suave. Couldn’t understand the attachment with his incompetent brother that he repeatedly used and saved. This is like a Martin Scorsese film: He makes pictures about the kinds of people you wouldn't want to know. The underbelly of life, but I liked it. Fast forwarded through the fight scenes. Not a big fan of someone getting pummeled.

I really really wanted to start liking the film but instead of being entertaining or at least thought provoking it was a boring and confusing event. Watching it only proved to be a tedious chore. It did not deliver and holding on for the whole thing right to end proved to be entirely unrewarding. I wish I could say something more positive about this film.

The film was not very good, this is the first time I couldn't watch a film to the end. So I really can't say good or bad, however for me it was too slow and badly done.

Okay. I'm going to give you a prompt. I'm gonna say,
"Cross the room if you like something.
"Cross the room if you want to do something.
"Cross the room if you have ever done something."
And if you have or agree with those prompts, you would cross the room. Now, you choose whether or not you want to cross. You don't have to. It could be your secret. You choose your truth. Okay? Okay. So let's start with something easy. Cross the room if you like candy.
Mikey and Michael don't like candy? Okay.
How about something harder? Cross the room if you've ever been in love.
- I think I have.
You think you have? Okay.
Cross the room if you have ever lied.
Cross the room if you've ever not gotten along with your family members
Cross the room if you've ever been blamed for something that you didn't do.
