After hearing so many great things about this film, I expected something groundbreaking. Unfortunately, I have to say I was disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it was very entertaining and kept me engaged from start to finish, but I really can't say it was anything substantially superior to your typical crime thriller (though it was certainly above average). I would actually be disappointed if this was nominated for Best Picture, as there are so many good films this year. I did think however, that Jon Hamm was outstanding in his role (making use of his charisma from "Mad Men") and also Blake Likely showed off her acting skills as well. I really don't expect any Oscar nominations for this film though. Overall, it's a great "popcorn" flick, perfect for your next Friday night trip to the DVD store.
