Vulgar and unoriginal... Blake made a cheap career decision here
First off, I was very disappointed by the unnecessary vulgar language and to see Blake Lively spew out one disgusting line after the other... all of it unconvincingly. Call it graphic vulgarity.
Blake was clearly out of her element and uncomfortable in her role.
I had envisioned Blake a classy actress, only to be bludgeoned by her lack of foresight by taking on a role as stupid as this one.
The whole movie was a mess and uncomfortable to watch.
The only reason I give it two stars is for the acting of Anna Kendricks, whose acting chops far surpassed everyone else... and for the big black cop she bantered with.
Lousy directing, cheesy script and Blake’s uncomfortable performance make this movie a dud.
By The Extinction Protocol
Intelligent, chic - suburban noir that’s full of twists and turns that borders on dark comedy. Blake Lively and Anna K. Are at the top of their game.
Watch anything else
Watch literally anything else and save your money. This may be the only thing I have ever left a review of in my life but I felt like bots created by the studio/iTunes are leaving positive reviews. I'm baffled how anyone in their right mind can think this is anything other than pure dumpster juice. My wife and I agreed that they gave up about a quarter of the way in to making this movie and decided to just try anything that came into their heads. The plot twists people are writing about aren't twists, they are just desperate, contrived attempts to make sense out of a story that makes absolutely no sense. I feel like I can no longer trust Rotten Tomatoes or iTunes for reviews.
