Bad
I didn't know it was based on an autobiography. If so, I really hope that they chose the most boring and lamest parts of the book to adapt to the screen.If not, my sympathies to the readers as well. I am no Michael Bay fan, so I wasn't expecting explosions and I really liked movies like "a separation" or "about Elly" but this is just an experimental thing. Let's roll and see what happens. I don't know if I should care about the leading character that it's replaced after a very long hour when time has passed. Should it matter to me his childhood? Did I need such a long character exposition? What for? What is it about his adult life that needs to be explained? I could easily have imagined his background if they had only decided to show his grown-up years. This should have been compressed into a short movie. And like Robert McKee said: "Why the f- are you wasting my two precious hour with your movie?"
