Background Info

I can’t remember the exact reasoning behind wanting to watch this one. I hadn’t heard of it before, and I’m not LaBeouf’s biggest fan, but the trailer must have looked good. We may have seen it just after we’d watched Batman, thus been on a bit of a Tom Hardy wave.

1:08 - Lots of people made this. And all silent idents too. Thought the sound had broken! 7:53 - Jeez, knuckle dusters can do some damage. 14:43 - “I don’t know if that’s the stupidest thing I ever seen, or if you’re some kind of damn genius.” Alcohol through the pipes?

Conclusions

We watched the required (by our own rules) thirty minutes of this, and it was beautifully shot and looked like it might be good. Unfortunately, I couldn’t understand a word anyone was saying, so had no idea what was going on. It was all a bit too confusing, and although I thought LaBeouf was actually quite good, I didn’t really have any desire to sit through another hour of it.
