Absolutely terrible, I can't say much else. I feel like everyone who said this was a good movie is in on some elaborate troll.

I can't think of a movie with Kevin Spacey or Guy Pearce that I don't like.

Norton shows here how good an actor he really is. His monologue about 1/3rd of the way through was amazing.

I couldn't agree more with Mikhaelmt. The movie as a whole had the cast to be a great one, but an incredible lack of screen time for Kristen Wiig really just ruined the entire thing. Jon Hamm has a couple phenomenal scenes, but I'm still not convinced I like him in comedic roles. Ultimately, it was disappointing, but still funny at times, especially given some of the awkward scenarios (however unrealistic they may be) presented.

This is not a movie, it's a bunch of well executed and decently shot fight sequences chained together. I will say, the score induces suspense (even at times when there is no suspense thematically) almost perfectly. Somebody earlier in this thread referenced "Oldboy", which in my mind is not even remotely similar. Oldboy is violent and has similarly well made fight scenes, but that's not what makes a movie good.

Overall, if you want to watch some entertaining fighting, it's worth it, but otherwise there's no reason to see this film.

Really a great movie. Watched No Country for Old Men before this, and they're both two of my new favorites.

Very boring, but fantastically made and acted. If you appreciate, and I mean really APPRECIATE good cinematography and "realistic" acting, this is for you. Otherwise I don't recommend it. On a side note, the first 30 minutes or so are rather interesting because of the humor brought on by Dunst's father.

I must be in the minority here, but I'd much prefer this film if it avoided all action entirely, and was essentially just a character study set in a zombie infested London. I'd say about 3/4ths of it functions that way, but the last act just doesn't really fit, IMO.

It's amazing the impact Norton has here when in terms of screen time and lines, his role is fairly minor.

Prior to this, I watched Signs, which I didn't really enjoy, so I didn't have high hopes for this film. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised.

One of the most underrated movies out there, IMO
