What the F?
25 December 2016 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I must come clean. I wanted to like this movie. I watched every nuance, every shadow, every twist wishing to like this movie. And then when the credits rolled, I was like, W.T.F? It is possible that I did not get the plot (if there was any). It is possible, but not very likely that I kind of didn't get what others did (given the few stellar reviews here- presumably not from the Director's immediate family). But besides the admittedly superb acting from Ian McShane (did not know he was still around, never mind active) and Patrick Wilson (the one whose face here must have been behind inventing the term Deadpan) what was there that I devoted/wasted almost two hours of my life to?

We know lots of nonsense goes on in those shady, dusty border towns no one has heard of (hence I hope PE Trump makes good of his promise of building a beautiful wall), but why those kind of shenanigans become plot of a movie? So many questions. Mostly starting with 'why'. Or simply 'why'?

But hey, this might just raise awareness among folks that the trade in illegal arms and Ammo is as bad for the 'bad Hombres' out there as is the drug trade that requires the Arms. And since when Hollywood (in its widest sense) condone bad guys getting away with, say 'ill gotten gains'? Are we supposed to feel sorry for Marla? Because she is conflicted in love and life?

And By the way, the fine medical treatment the character of Patrick Wilson gets to his severed hand (Shame they never find it to re-attach) must be the dream of Surgeons everywhere..just wrap it up nicely buddy and all will be well...WoW!

Someone said if you look into a room full of horse manure, you might find a pony there somewhere. Believe me, I looked.
